Equal Pay for Women

Captain America 3: Cival War casted.
Women are under paid in Hollywood

This week only one new movie came out and it was “Hot Pursuit” starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. It’s not a great movie but that mixed with a series of articles lead us to the discussion of equal pay for women in Hollywood. We try to explain why they’re not paid equally but ultimately come back to the fact that they should be. It’s not just Hollywood, it’s all over the world, but why not start in Hollywood at least.

HotPursuit

Our Undisputed Classic was actually a Cult Classic Guantlet that Sean laid down before Josh and I. We were tasked to check out the Netflix Cult Classic section and each check out a movie for the first time. Sean loved “Goon,” I appreciated and “Reanimator” and Josh loathed “Wet Hot American Summer” despite the fact that both Sean and I love the flick.

1985 – Nothing of note came out in 1985

Avengers Age of Ultron, Chuck Norris & Bruce Jenner

Avengers Age of Ultron has finally been released. Josh and I watched it with a very critical eye. The action was unintelligible, the dialogue was not strong, the story line connecting all these movies together has major holes in it. Then Sean, our resident film critic managed to watch the movie for what it was, a summer blockbuster that is a lot of fun. You say tomato I say…this doesn’t work as well when you type it out.

News:

Nathan Rabin has been canned by The Dissolve
Robert Downey Jr shits on indie film.
Mae Whitman passed over in “Independence Day 2”
The Baltimore Riots and “The Purge”

Our Does it Hold Up segment was inspired by Bruce Jenner. We took a look at Hedwig and the Angry Inch and The Crying Game. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is truly one of the great rock musicals of all time while the offensive marketing campaign really ruins The Crying Game experience.

1985 – Chuck Norris is Chuck Norris in Code of Silence. But it would have been awesome if he was in Gymkata. Anthony Edwards made Gotcha and Johnny Depp did Private Resort.
