Re: Movies that OFFEND you

Misogyny bothers me more in realistic films than it does in action films. Action films are supposed to be about male bravado, so IMO they get a pass.

The films that bug me are the sort of films that pretend to be progressive when really they are preaching super-conservative values. Things like Friends With Kids, No Strings Attached. Where the premise is something modern and forward thinking, but then the conclusion is that no, it's impossible to really have anything except a traditional family and traditional meaning of sex.

Then there are hypocritical movies that are about not judging people superficially, when they're really about WOMEN not judging MEN superficially. So the ugly man gets the beautiful woman but the ugly woman never gets the handsome man.
