Heroine Content Turns Five (and does a giveaway)

It's probably obvious by now that Heroine Content has taken a little late summer break. Between our work schedules, summer traveling, and that "life" thing, it's just been busy. We even missed our own birthday a month ago! So here's...

What songs would you like to see made into action movies?

This past summer FlickFilosopher asked what fine-art painting would you like to see adapted as a film? I know close to nothing about fine art, so here's my alternate question for you: what songs would you like to see made...

What blogs should we be reading?

What's chock full of anti-oppression pop culture analysis awesomeness, or just awesomeness in general? We've got some of our fellow travelers in the blogroll in the sidebar. What else, though? (We're especially ignorant of the wide worlds of LiveJournal and...

What new releases should we be watching?

I was touching base with Grace a few weeks ago about upcoming films, thinking I was in the know on all the Heroine Content prospects for the next few months. She quickly disabused me of that notion by listing off...

What Skye and Grace look like (and a 4th blog anniversary thank you)

Just after Heroine Content turned four a couple of weeks ago, Grace and I attended BlogHer '10 in New York City and had a fabulous time. This photo was taken by our good friend Angelina of Stitch and Boots and...

So Here's A Question for Y'all

While everyone's busy tearing up Book of Eli, one of the comments did bring something to mind. In our reviews, would it be necessary / appropriate / appreciated that if there is a scene involving sexual violence, for us to...

What's Coming Up in 2010?

I thought I'd take a look ahead at 2010 and see what may be coming down the pike. IMDB's list of action films slated for 2010 is undoubtedly a hazy look into the future, but I did find some items...

Slightly New Look

I just updated the Heroine Content template to have three columns, for possibly evil plans as yet unformulated. I'm going to keep tweaking over the weekend, but if you see any rough edges right off the bat, please do let...

On Anachronisms, Sexism, and Reality

We just received a comment on the Wolverine review that I'm not going to publish because it doesn't even begin to respect our comment policy. However, I had to share this one bit of it: Of course it's a bunch...

Angel of Death

Have you missed me? More importantly, have you missed Zoë Bell? If yes, miss either of us no more--you can see Zoë in cartoonist Ed Brubaker's Crackle live action series, Angel of Death. And you can see me right...

100 Greatest Movie Characters?

Right now, Empire Magazine Online has a list up of the "100 Greatest Movie Characters." Since I'm somebody who loves a good list, I took a gander at it yesterday. And what I saw surprised even cynical me. Of the...

Two Years of Heroine Content

Want a sticker? Or two? Or ten? Leave a comment, I still have some left over. Two years ago, Grace and I were feverishly working to get Heroine Content up and running in time to publicize it at BlogHer...

Heroine Content at BlogHer

Anyone out there attending BlogHer this weekend? If so, look for me! I'll either be carrying a redheaded baby, holding the baby by the hand as he walks around, or grinning maniacally because the baby is hanging out with...

Bring It On / Ice Princess / Stick It

I think I could actually write full reviews of all three of these, but they make such a nice set that it seems a shame to break them up. Bring It On tries to be enlightened about race. What happens...

Near Misses: In the Line of Fire / I Robot / Point Break

A few comments about films that could have been so much more. You'll notice that none of the posters show the female characters, though each movie has a woman in it who could have been an action heroine. First, In...
