A list of all the horror movies I have ever seen.
Listed in order seen. Shows currently airing are at the end of the list.
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
This movie is better than the average comic-to-screen work. I would say that it surpasses many of the year's other films of the same genre, such as TASM2, TMNT, etc.
However, this film, like many of the other films in its genre, suffers from sexist tones. But it goes even farther and uses misogynistic, violent language against the ONLY female protagonist, Zoe Saldana's character.
She is referred to as a "wench," "green whore," and various other derogatory terms by one of the other protagonists. What is worse, he tells her that she is his "friend" but still calls her these names. He then proceeds to exert violence towards an antagonist character who uses a slur against her, proclaiming that "no one else" can talk to his "friend" that way.
So, not only does this movie condone rape culture, patriarchy, and violent language, it also infantilizes and patronizes the only female character through making her tolerant of her colleague's "protector" attitude in the aforementioned scene, despite the fact that she is more than capable of taking care of herself.
The specific slurs used themselves reflect the dudebro, sexist attitude of the filmmakers and of our society at large: slut, whore, wench, etc. All derogatory sexual terms used for a woman who has more sex than society wants her to. The character has no sex at all in the film, but because she is a woman, she is seen as a sexual object and thus the only way to "insult" her in this patriarchal mentality is to use derogatory sexual remarks against her.
I cannot support films like this. Whoever wrote this script needs to be educated in gender studies.
Yes, the movie had good visual effects and a solid villain and a good storyline. Rocket and Groot were fun characters. But we should not allow the positive aspects of the film to overshadow the threatening nature of its sexist undertones. Such seemingly innocuous remarks and societal norms contribute heavily to and define misogyny, patriarchy, rape culture, victim blaming, sex phobia, and backwards attitudes.
Breaking Bad: Fly (2010)
Were they trying to punk the audience?
I have watched a lot of TV series over the years and seen some pretty terrible bu**s***. But this is by far the worst television episode I have ever seen in my entire life. And that is quite terrible.
First of all, it's obvious that this was a filler episode. That alone is shocking, considering this is a thirteen-episode-per-season show. Filler episodes are more common in shows with greater episode orders.
Secondly, I assume that the writers were trying to make this a dramatic "bottle" episode. A bottle episode is a TV episode that focuses on only one or two characters in an isolated location.
Well, whatever dynamic the writers were trying to create between Walter and Jesse did not work AT ALL. The dialogue was incredibly boring and written very poorly. The climax which almost happened near the end of the episode ended up not happening at all. I literally face-palmed. The entire ambiance in this embarrassment of an episode was awkward and uncomfortable. Even the acting in this one was shaky. I feel like Aaron Paul tried for his part but Bryan Cranston looked like he was hung over the entire episode.
Moreover, I'm already annoyed by all the hype given to this overrated show, and especially to Bryan Cranston, who I find to be an extremely overrated actor. The fact that this episode was even allowed to air makes me even more annoyed.
Dear "Breaking Bad" writers and producers: If you want to learn how to create a TRULY brilliant and intense bottle episode, go watch "Six Minutes," episode 3x10 of "The Killing."
