Comment of the Day: Unfogged: "The new Mad Max movie may be the most guy movie ever made. The plot is literally: Tom Hardy (Mad Max) and Charlize Theron (Furiosa) rescue scantily-clad supermodels...:
...If you asked me when I was 15 to list movie ideas, the list would have gone something like: scantily-clad supermodels, 18 wheelers, guys getting shot, guys getting blown up, fist-fights on top of an 18 wheeler, guys with chainsaws, guys getting run over by 18 wheelers, guys with guitars that shoot fire, and cars crashing into 18 wheelers and blowing up. This list is basically the script for "Mad Max: Fury Road".
The only thing missing is a helicopter piloted by velociraptors crashing into an 18 wheeler. But there's always the chance of a sequel.
It's a sign of how deranged gender issues in the US have become that this movie, which has a ratio of cars blown up to words spoken of about 2 to 1, has inspired a boycott by men's rights activists, in turn making it a feminist cause-celebre.
For MRAs, it's not sufficient that it be a guy's movie full of things guys like. It must be actively exclusionary towards women. In the movie, most of the dialogue is by the supermodels--Max and Furiosa is restricted to clenching and unclenching their teeth, action-hero style. The villain is explicitly patriarchal, and the heroes are rescuing them from a life of only pushing out babies for him. Furiosa shoots approximately 80 guys in the head in the movie. The existence of any element in the movie that women might enjoy or identify with completely ruins the experience, and makes it a tool of the SJW agenda.
To which all I can say is this: if you are a guy and you refuse to go on your rescuing-supermodels adventure because Charlize Theron is coming with you, you really need to reconsider your commitment to heterosexuality.
