Re: Cried after seeing a movie before? I did today

I don't cry at movies were I know they are going to be really sad like Schindler's List or Titanic. But I cry at ones where I am taken by surprise like Mysterious Skin, or Ice Age.

Heat (1995)

Re: Heat (1995)

But why though? Why does there always have to be a final confrontation, instead of both protagonist and antagonist, learning from their arcs, go their seperate ways?

Well I think that changing Bond to a woman and give it all of these rising up against toxic masculinity themes, would alienate a lot of the fans.

It's like how for example, Baseball has a lot of...

Re: Stu Presents, Men & Women Of Action: When Genre & Gender Collide!

Fury Road was done well in my opinion. But I guess that's different than changing the Mad Max character to a woman, and still keeping the same character overall. (Mad Maxine if you will?).
