On three hours of sleep last night, this is what I have for you:
Raiders of the Source Material on Sloganeering.org.
Zoe Saldana Talks To io9 About Star Trek And Avatar. Here’s the bit that got me:
io9: Tell me about being a one of the few women on the Enterprise?
Saldana: I think it’s awesome. To be on the Enterprise with all these guys, the message speaks loudly. She’s a female, she’s of high rank and she has her shit together. And never is it ever about, or was it ever about her female presence. It was pretty great. I loved being the only girl.
Yes, yes, it does speak loudly. I just don’t think it says what Saldana thinks it says.
I don’t always agree with Elisabeth Rappe on Cinematical, but I’m glad she’s writing there. Latest: Re-Raiding the Tomb, No Actress Yet for ‘Witchblade’ — But We’ve Got the Teaser Poster. Monika Barytzel also posted pics from Street Fighter. (Ohmygosh, three posts actually written by women about women in action movies on a mainstream movie blog? I’m obviously dreaming.)
