haha oh wow
25 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

The production values are a joke. The sound quality is terrible. The message is glib, asinine, and poorly researched. None of the people they interviewed had any idea about video games. They even interviewed an avowed racist about his views on "communists and homosexuals" and their evil agenda (lol). What does this have to do with Sarkeesian? Who knows! Better toss it in anyway. I mean, one of the creators of the movie is a white nationalist, so it's not surprising he'd give time to a guy like that.

There is nothing of any value in this movie. It's anti-intellectual pap that totally ignores decades, if not centuries, of academic scholarship in favor of a rambling, incoherent diatribe. None of it is worth your time.
