I’m just not sure geek culture is ready for WOC superhero movies

daggerpen:

Like, sure, geek culture has become incredibly mainstream nowadays, but only for some limited “iconic” characters. I mean, geez, let’s look at the precedents here. Do you really think people would go for a WOC-led video game?

image

Especially in a franchise?

image

Can you imagine a WOC-led comic book becoming popular?

image

Breaking new ground or setting records?

image

image

And honestly, it’s so hard for female-led movies to do well

image

Can you imagine a hit geek culture movie with a woman of color in a leading role?

image

Or a TV show?

image

image

I donno, guys. It might be best to just stick to the most popular superheroes. We’re just not ready for a superhero movie with anything but iconic characters.

"When I was doing my first movie, the only thing I knew is that I wanted a female editor. Because I just felt a female editor would be more nurturing. To the movie and to me. They wouldn’t try to be winning their way just to win their way, all right? They wouldn’t be trying to shove their agenda or win their battles with me. They would be nurturing me through this process."

Quentin Tarantino, “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing”

this is a weird documentary. they use the default pronoun “he” to refer to editors, yet time and again there’s creepy shit in there about the way male directors, with their massive egos, have used these “invisible” non-celebrated women collaborators for their own self-aggrandizement

also tarantino sounds like a fucking sexist prick here

esp. given the fact that women in Hollywood are simply not allowed the opportunities as a director that a white man like him received

they’re second-place little helpmeets who are disallowed from the big time

and they’ve got to ~nurture~ you without getting the kind of credit you get as a white male director

bleh

It’s double gross because the drop of editing quality in Django was SO DAMN OBVIOUS. Sally Menke was who defined that delicious postmodern visual handwriting for him (and it’s shameful I only learned that late in art school, after years of considering myself “a film buff”), and her passing is a great loss to the craft.

(via thiswontbebigondignity)

I didn’t know Sally Menke’s name or how much of the work attributed to The Great Tarantino is hers before tonight

it’s sickening how women’s artistic genius is erased

and Tarantino got exactly what he wanted: someone to “nurture” him and make him look good as an artist

and never be spoken of

never take any of the limelight from him

because fucking nobody cares about women and their achievements

and white male directors have been and continue to be the little feted monstergod babies of Hollywood

(via ladiesfeels)

Film editing is one of those positions that women take because they can’t get hired as directors. Kind of like how women in the comics industry end up as colorists because noone wants them as the headline artist.

How many great directors have partnered consistently with female editors? A lot of them. Scorsese is a great example. Thelma Schoonmaker has edited every single one of his films since 1980, starting with Raging Bull. She is instrumental to his success. But is she a household name like Scorsese is? Of course not.

Imagine a world where she directed her own films, and what those films could have been like. I’m not saying all film editors wish they were directors or anything. But it’s no coincidence that the position most open to female moviemakers is the most unsung, and that’s part of why there are so few female directors today.

Suddenly her mom’s silence matched Jackie’s own. “Oh, my God,” she murmured in disbelief. “Are you gay?”

"Yeah," Jackie forced herself to say.

After what felt like an eternity, her mom finally responded. “I don’t know what we could have done for God to have given us a fag as a child,” she said before hanging up.

[…]

She got a call from her older brother. “He said, ‘Mom and Dad don’t want to talk to you, but I’m supposed to tell you what’s going to happen,’” Jackie recalls. “And he’s like, ‘All your cards are going to be shut off, and Mom and Dad want you to take the car and drop it off at this specific location. Your phone’s going to last for this much longer. They don’t want you coming to the house, and you’re not to contact them. You’re not going to get any money from them. Nothing. And if you don’t return the car, they’re going to report it stolen.’ And I’m just bawling. I hung up on him because I couldn’t handle it.” Her brother was so firm, so matter-of-fact, it was as if they already weren’t family.
