Re: Star Trek Into Darkness & The Bechdel Test
The problem is that the Carol Marcus underwear scene served no purpose other than to titillate. She's wearing a push-up bra for God's sake.
The same goes for the Uhura/Kirk bedroom scene in ST09. The camera does linger on Saldana's body in a voyeuristic way-a way that it does not when it focuses on Kirk.
I just want to know when people stopped going to the movies to be entertained? It seems like many of you have a checklist of what makes a good film that is really narrow.
Me and the wife are going to see Man of Steel
Saturday and she wants some shirtless dude action and really doesn't care if it has anything to do with the story or not.
