Charlie’s Angels is out Today on Blu-ray and DVD

GameStop, Inc.

Just as Charlie’s Angels was being released in theaters, director Elizabeth Banks went on a preemptive strike by claiming that if her reboot of the continuation of  1970s “Jiggle TV” series would only fail because of misogyny. In the ultimate effort of “woke-ness” Banks instantly shifted the blame on 48 percent of the population.

This go around, the now multi-ethnic and very talented cast. Naomi Scott plays the worrywart, Ella Balinska is the bad ass, Kristen Stewart is crazy one and the multiple Bosley’s are played by Banks, Patrick Stewart, Djimon Hounsou and four others. Frankly, the concept was interesting and the action was great, but the over the top posturing and constant reminder that these are, “strong women,” took away from a movie that should have been just a big, dumb, fun action movie. We don’t need to be reminded every two lines that they are strong women, cinema is a visual media, for those of us with sight, we can clearly see, the woman with the gun and shot the bad guy is the heroine.

The best Easter Egg was realized that the voice of History’s Ancient Aliens is Robert Clotworthy, who voices Charlie.

Unfortunately, everyone probably feared that Birds of Prey would be this same kind of posturing and that’s why it was ignored by audiences. That comic book based film showed how you can have a cast of strong women without the constant reminder of, “don’t forget, were strong.” In fact, I’m going to watch that again, this afternoon.

Some people will say I know nothing of strong women because I’m a man or whatever nonsense. I can point out directly on my maternal side that my grandmother, mom, aunts and cousins all survived a civil war, while on my paternal side, again, my grandmother, aunts and cousins survived a revolution. I know strong women because I was raised by and surrounded by strong women. Not once did they have to posture because their survival and presence was enough. You want to meet strong women, go look at Syria and those 15 year olds defending their villages against the Free Syrian Army.

Banks didn’t want to take responsibility for a poorly made film and not only her actions prior to its release but the final product proves that Charlie’s Angels could have been so much more.
