I went to see Kick-Ass last night. I thought it was cool.
One thing that stood out for me was Hit-Girl. She was awesome. Now I’m not suggesting people go and teach their 11 year old daughters how to brutally slay people and come out with lines like, ”OK you c—s, let’s see what you can do”, but it makes a change from the vacuous lead girls in recent years. The likes of Moonlight and The Vampire Diaries seem to suggest a woman’s only role in life is to look pretty and sit around pining over her moodily cool boyfriend. Certainly not the sort of role model I would want for any daughter of mine.
Where is Ellen Ripley when you need her?
