>So I hear that Sex and the City is a great movie. I'll probably even see it at some point. But for a truly awesome flick, involving some of the most hilarious dialog ever spouted, go rent The Long Kiss Goodnight. Geena Davis is just one of the greatest feminist actresses ever, and she's top notch in this over-the-top action extravaganza. Plus, it co-stars Samuel L. Jackson. Fuck the motherfucking snake on the motherfucking plane - the man is in top form in this movie.
This is The Bourne Identity (another flick I adore) with a faulous female lead and 4,255 times more jokes. Of course, since it starred a woman, it absolutely tanked at the box office when it came out in 1996. Quite frankly, I think that is a sign of just how good it is. The masses usually don't turn out for movies featuring complex, strong women who shoot bad guys (a market Davis has cornered).
So what are you waiting for? We can discuss why this movie rocks the house so hard at the Feminism & Gender Meet-Up at BlogHer. It will be fun.
