John Green implying its risky moves by telling stories about women. Because nobody cares and this “folk hero” is our savior by doing the impossible. Fuck off John Green. You male savior ding dong
If he don’t grow up I just saw like 2 trailers for movies with female leads in the damn theatres
also in what world is tfios a small movie like y’all i know it’s ~nerd culture~ and ~nerdfighters~ but like……..u know ur not the underdog right……….u know ur famous and have legions of fans
you’re viewing this wrong. It takes guts because of the blatant misogyny in young society. It takes guts to portray a girl as human and strong and brave in a world that will only want to view her as sexual and manipulable.
It is a small movie because it’s budget was $12 million, as opposed to the big budget Summer films like Tom Cruise’s The Edge of Tomorrow which was released around the same time ($178 million) and it is a small movie because the cast and crew have shown to be extraordinarily intimate and tight-knight, all banding together to create a small story that has ended up impacting so many lives.
The movie is small in both budget and cast and crew size, but it is treated like a big, blockbuster movie because of the “legions of fans.”
He is not trying to be a “saviour”, and he is not saying that he is the one who has guts, I can assure you that a man who has struggled with anxiety and depression his whole life will not be quick to call himself gutsy. He is saying that the cast and crew and hell, especially the audience who recieved TFiOS so well are brave for tackling the epidemic of mysoginy which we’re all expected to stomach.
“I just saw like 2 trailers for movies with female leads in the damn theatres”
Okay… compared to the hundreds of movies that get released every year with strictly male protagonists, I don’t this “like 2 trailers” is impressive enough to use as an argument. Please, don’t be so judgemental and try to understand the intent behind TFiOS and Nerdfighteria.
