  1. Hollywood is a Jerk: Kitty Pryde, Sexism, and Days of Future Past

    Essay

    I don’t like time travel. Excusing the excuse that it’s a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff, most Hollywood time travel consists of altering linear timelines to forestall mistakes, death, and apocalyptic disaster. At its best, it comes across as the screenwriting equivalent of a neat parlor trick, at its worst it’s sloppy, plot-hole-filled writing that has to use sci-fi mumbo-jumbo to cover its own tracks. But the latest time-jumping saga to hit the silver screen -- X-Men: Days of Future Past -- made pretty good on it promises with one major wrinkle; the film itself is an alternative timeline to what happened in the comics, for a not-so-mysterious reason. That reason is Ms. Shadowcat herself, Kitty Pryde, who, instead of being the time-traveling agent of change, acts as the supercharged battery that sends Wolverine back. Though we’ll get into the details below, a canon shift of this magnitude in book-to-film adaptation would normally inspire internet outrage, essays about the changes, and hot debate between fans. Instead, it seems that only a corner of the fan world—the one directly concerned with issues of female representation—has spoken up in opposition. Considering the canonical fanaticism that followed the introduction of a female character to The Hobbit films, you might think it strange to see such a dearth of dissent. Unless what we’re really looking at is the same thing in reverse, another classic case of – everyone say it with me now -- Hollywood sexism.

    Mutatis Mutandis

    There are considerable legal hurdles to getting the Avengers and the X-Men together on the big screen, but there's no reason why we couldn't some day see the director of The Avengers take a vacation from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to visit the X-Men, maybe even to showcase a character that he focused a significant amount of his comic work on. And that character's actress, Ellen Page, is totally down with it.

  9. Ellen Page on The Last of Us ‘Ripping Off’ Her Likeness

    There Can Be Only One

    Blockbuster hit the Last of Us is gorgeous, gritty, and gripping; but there's one thing that has people scratching their heads. Is that Ellen Page? It's probably an accident, but there is something uncannily similar about her likeness and Ellie, one of two protagonists for the game. In a recent AMA ("Ask Me Anything") on Reddit, the actress commented on the resemblance.

  10. Yes, Ellen Page Knows Ellie From The Last of Us Looks Like Her, and She’s Not Happy About It

    So shut your gob, Banana!

    It must suck to be a celebrity who looks like a fictional character that wasn't actually played by you -- like, I bet at this point Nicolai Coster-Waldau wants to throttle everyone who's ever asked him about being Prince Charming from Shrek. So I understand why Ellen Page is kinda annoyed already that everyone's noticed what a striking resemblance she bears to the 14-year-old Ellie from The Last of Us. Now she's suggesting that they intentionally ripped off her likeness, which she really doesn't appreciate. Poor Ellie can't catch a break, huh?
