Quick Update: Skye's new blogging home

In case anyone's still subscribed here, just to let y'all know, I'm back to blogging over at my new online home Planet Jinxatron. (Hat tip to Chris Giarrusso of G-Man and Mini Marvels for letting me use the name.) There's...

A Heroine Content Goodbye

Hi everybody, I'm writing to let you know something that's already pretty obvious. Heroine Content ran from July 2006 to May 2012, and it's done now. Grace wrapped up her involvement in mid-2011, and my 2012 has been so exhausting...

The Avengers: First Thoughts

I'm not calling this a full review of The Avengers, because I started celebrating its release early by getting sick so I'm kind of a mess. Also, I'm coming from a place of love for comics, and Marvel specifically,...

Chicks Dig Comics (and they write about it and make me happy)

Heroine Content readers, I have been cheating on you. With comics. It's a passion I flirted with in junior high (Elfquest), got serious with in college (Sandman, Hellblazer, Strangers in Paradise, the Invisibles), and quite possibly married about two...

Fright Night: Now that's just not fair!

So there's this gal, and there's some danger. It's some really bad danger too, not quite Terminator 2 level, but really, how the hell is she going to get out of the danger? Oh wait, there are TWO gals,...

February Link Love: Attack the Block, Dragon Tattoo, Star Trek, Loki, and Black Widow

Haywire's Action Hero - She's a Deadly Woman, without being a Femme Fatale by Jennifer K. Stuller at Ink-Stained Amazon. She didn't much care for the film, it seems, but does give it props for avoiding making Carano's character...

Underworld: Awakening - The Return of Selene

If you have to choose between seeing Haywire and Underworld: Awakening, you should see Haywire. If you don't have to choose, I recommend that you see both. (Two action films headlined by women opening in one weekend. WHY DOESN'T...

Haywire: Start 2012 Off Right, Y'all

If Haywire is opening in your city on Friday, please cancel any other plans you have and buy tickets immediately. Unless you already know that the way Steven Soderberg directs his actors often drives you up the wall... okay,...

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

Thanks so much to Bonnie Norman of A Working Title for sharing her post about this film! Trigger warning: This movie contains scenes of violence and rape. Also, Spoiler Alert for the book and movies. The Girl with the...

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Nothing to see here, move along.

I usually include the most widely promoted movie poster when I do a review here. But for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, I'm using the one that best communicates how unsurprising Paula Patton's role is in the film. Unless...

Colombiana: Why you should see it

Colombiana is not perfect. But it's coming out on DVD on December 20th, and I think you should see it if you missed it in theaters. Colombiana is the story of Cataleya, a young girl whose father is murdered...

November Link Love: no kitchen sink, but a little of everything else

I'm sure there's something here for everyone, so pick a link or two and relax for a few minutes. And if anyone wants to think non-coughing thoughts in my direction that would be swell. That's towards Austin, Texas to...

Attack the Block: Yes please, and can there be a sequel?

Attack the Block surprised the heck out of me. My husband said "hey, do you want to go see this, it's kind of like Battle Los Angeles mixed with Shaun of the Dead." Since I liked both of those...

Immortals: The Movie That Made Us Love The Three Musketeers

If my husband and I ever divorce, I have no doubt that he will itemize "made me see Immortals" as one of his grievances. He's usually very patient with seeing movies for the blog. But on this one, he...

Wing Chun: Why, oh why did I watch this movie again?

[Trigger warning on this film for rape by deception and an attempted gang rape. It's mentioned in the review but not discussed in detail.] I saw Wing Chun years ago in a theater in Austin. If I'd been asked...
