Heroine Content Links #2: Doomsday, Transformers, Catwoman

Cinematical says that March 14th is the release date for Doomsday. It stars Rhona Mitra as the leader of an elite team that heads into a quarantine zone to find a cure for a killer virus. (Looks like Mitra’s also slated to be in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.) So it’s definitely in Heroine Content territory.

The 19th Carnival of Feminist Science Fiction and Fantasy Fans is up at Girls Read Comics.

Apparently we have a stunt fighting academy right here in Heroine Content’s own backyard.

Monica Gallagher wrote to tell us about her latest comic, Lipstick & Malice, which is “about a model who decides to find an outlet for her rage in part-time assassin work.” Do head on over and check it out.

And a few links from summers past…

Bad Movie on feminist dracona, which even mentions us by name while reviewing the film D.O.A. I was only saved from this movie because it didn’t run long enough in theaters. My husband needed a good laugh and by golly he was going to drag me with him.

Why “Transformers” Annoyed Me on African American Dad. “I’m sure the money was good for what they little did, but did both characters have to be disrespecting their mothers for the sake of comedy?”

Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman by BetaCandy on The Hathor Legacy. This is the kind of film criticism I really admire. Also see Hell Hath No Fury Like A Kitty Scorned by Ifritah for some additional points.
