Which has, in turn, given female actors or characters the ability to outgrow such previous stereotypes that were once typically portrayed in horror films. For instance, generally in movies as Friday the 13th, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, American Psycho and others alike, the killer or bad “guy,” ironically was far too purposefully male, powerful, and merciless. The reason for
Tyson punches that he throw were many that I never seen any boxer could compare. He would was so equal in power in both his left hand and right . He would through and left punch to your side then a right to you jaw then he would uppercut you with his left the punches that he threw were unreal and he was like a machine he just would never stop and was relentless. Mike Tyson is the most controversial heavyweight champion in boxing history(Aiyer, Akshay. "How Good Was Mike Tyson as a Boxer?"
Guardians of the Galaxy is a Marvel team super hero film. Nonetheless, it is controversial to the audience whether it fits the sub-genre of a team-up film such as The Avengers. Due to the characters, none of them have their individual movie like Iron Man. However, James Gunn uses points of view and actor’s acting to enhance the intimacy among the characters that makes this movie fits into the team super hero film genre. In addition, Gunn uses makeups to not make any of the roles too standout because they all have unique appearances that balance out on screen.
Ancient Sparta has often been referred to as one of the most dominant military forces in history. During Sparta’s time of dominance, Spartan forces employed tactics of intimidation and sovereignty. Spartan soldiers dedicated their lives to training and preparing for battle, enabling them to create a fierce, dominant military. Sparta used their military for both protection and conquering, maintaining a stable economy and civilization. The Spartan military was able to dominate for so long because of superior military tactics, extensive training and discipline and advanced weaponry and armor, and intimidation and help from the gods.
In Guardians of the Galaxy, both men and women are extremely sexualized, but the women’s sexualization is more blatant. For example, Aleta’s costume is made up of a skin tight black and yellow suit which has a neckline that extends to below her belly button and makes apparent how well endowed she is. She also has
Professional wrestling, for better or for worse, has always paid heavy attention to the physiques of those who step into the ring. The fans like extremes, or at least that’s the theory. They want to see absurdly muscly performers battle it out with ridiculously overweight opponents, which has led to some pretty interesting bodies over the years. However, chiselled physiques are quite difficult to maintain and fat bodies are unadvisable to maintain, which means for every awe-inspiring body in pro wrestling, there has been an awe-inspiring body transformation. Because pro wrestlers, especially those who perform for WWE, are constantly in the spotlight, these body transformations are usually impossible to hide and often times are the cause of much unwanted attention and mockery.
Karen Hollinger is a professor of English at Atlantic University, an author and is also a very strong feminist. Hollinger’s essay, “The Monster as Woman: Two Generations of Cat People,” is an essay merely expressing how most monsters in novels or films are characterized as masculine identities and that viewers forget how powerful feminine identities in novels and films can be. Hollinger’s goal in this essay is to explain that feminine monsters are just as frightening all masculine monsters. She uses many references to movies with feminine monsters and expresses how powerful they are compared to masculine monsters and also expresses that males and females have castration anxieties. I think Hollinger succeeded in a sophisticated way because she
Perhaps, what launches her into the auteur threshold might be sexist; there are no other female directors that have achieved her level of notoriety. “She has been praised repeatedly—and somewhat ironically—as the most ‘masculine’ of feminine directors working today, chiefly because she continues to display a fascination for action narratives and for characters caught up in violent conflict” (Platzner). These themes of masculinity are clearly observable and prevalent in The Hurt Locker and Detroit. Masculinity alone, however, should not be the factor that allows a female director to be considered an auteur. "She is not just a woman, but she often directed [her movies] in a way that makes feminist film critics certain that she was secretly speaking to them, stretching out the homoerotic scenes, or casting leading ladies with butch haircuts who know how to hold a gun
The humans were not afraid of the Na’vi and would destroy anyone or thing that got in their way. Humans in District 9 took this same approach. In both cases, the aliens ended up being more humane than the actual humans. In District 9, there is a scene where the prawns fight and kill Kobus (the antagonist) to save Wikus. This showed the aliens support and community.
Although Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein was the first science fiction novel in literary history, men with a less-than-egalitarian view of women, has since dominated the genre . The low status of women in science fiction was not limited to simply ignoring their existence, but male writers also often reduced women to “squeaking dolls subject to instant rape by monsters—or old-maid scientists de-sexed by hypertrophy of the intellectual organs—or, at best, loyal little wives or mistresses of accomplished heroes” . With the rise of the women’s movement and feminist science fiction writers like Ursula K. Le Guin, people became more conscious of the incomplete and negative portrayal of women. Le Guin approaches the subject of androgyny with a vision to consider the whole instead of two parts, with her ambisexual Gethenians that are female, male, neither and both without becoming a paradox. The issue of gender, or the lack of it, is what initially strike readers before they segue into the deeper philosophy of the novel .
