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...

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...

July Link Love: X-Men First Class, Green Lantern, and Other Tidbits

So there's this thing called the internet, and people use it to write stuff. Strangely, neither my bosses nor my three year old feel that it's a priority for me to be one of those people. They have compelling arguments,...

May Links: Priest, Thor, Fast Five, and other linkage

The "people won't watch female action movies" myth on The Sounds of Distant Earth: girl powered music and film. New blog in our sphere, folks, so let's give it some love. She does some interesting comparisons of box office...

April Links: Hanna, more Sucker Punch (of course), and lots of other awesomeness

About Hanna, let me go ahead and admit that I totally missed that the German assassin was supposed to be gay, and that's bad. I don't do as as well at catching stuff in the theater, honestly, and I just...

March Links: Sucker Punch Edition

Keep in mind that almost everyone discussing this film is making at least some reference to sexual assault. Teresa Jusino at Tor (thanks @sigridellis for the lead) thinks the women in Sucker Punch grab agency and run with it, making...

January Links: True Grit, Superhero Movies, Ripley, Joan of Arc, etc.

Here are some lovely links for you to peruse. On women kicking ass in action films: The "Movies That Hate You" series on Loose Cannon has covered The Matrix and The Matrix: Revolutions, Aliens, and at least a couple dozen...

December Links Part the Second: And now we are all caught up

Hello cherished readers, here is the second installment of (almost) all the links that have been in Skye's Delicious account and tagged "heroines" for the last two years. Pick a couple and have a relaxing few minutes with some lovely...

December Links Part the First: Cleaning House

I tend to accidentally store links for years instead of sharing them with the class. I am finally close to cleaning out my Delicious account and getting a system in place to not fill it back up again. To complete...

November Links: Tangled, Sucker Punch, and Actual Information about women in action films

Before we get started with the November linkage, please take a second to check out the Racialicious $2 Challenge. Racialicious is one of the most amazing blogs I have ever read, and they could use some community pitching in to...

October Links Part the Second: Let Me In, Red, more on Machete, and a flashback to July with Salt

Skye says: I didn't get a chance to catch Let Me In, so I've added it to my Netflix queue. If anyone saw it, can you let us know how it was? Oh, and Happy Halloween if you celebrate...

October Links Part the First: Machete, Resident Evil, Scott Pilgrim

I saw Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D but I was so bored that I have not been able to write a review. All my husband came up with was "There wasn't much T&A for a Milla Jovovich movie" and "The...

September Links: Prachya Pinkaew's Chocolate, Autism, "Super Crips," and of course, more about Lizbeth Salander

I am still desperately in need of self-education on the perspectives of people with disabilities, and I probably always will be. I still suck at seeing discrimination and checking my own privilege. So thank goodness for the blogosphere. Reading...

July Links Part the First: Splice, Jonah Hex, Megan Fox, Scott Pilgrim, Red Dawn

This was going to be June Links Part the Second, but then it took me weeks to write my Girl with the Dragon Tattoo review and I fell down exhausted after that. In the comments to that post, -J-...

June Links Part the First: Prince of Persia

I'm off to see Jonah Hex this weekend, which may or may not be a good idea. I will let you know. In the meantime, I give you a collection of links to more about Prince of Persia. If...
