Some older pieces I enjoyed:
How movies/TV help to change social norms (for better or worse) at Anthro Goggles.
Stories for Men. Just go read it, seriously.
The 9 Most Racist Disney Characters on Cracked.com. (This one’s for Grace, love ya!)
The Day the Earth Stood Still Would’ve Been Great, If it Hadn’t Been So Underwhelming by Mana G at All Mirth and No Matter. I was totally sympathizing with the “wow look at all this non suckiness and yet this movie is so boring oh well” vibe.
Babylon AD: Yet Another Scifi Flick About the Virgin Mary by Annalee Newitz on io9.
Terrified Waitresses and Chicks Who Kick Ass at Brutal Women, about the Terminator series.
