30 Day Film Challenge- Day Two

Day Two-You least favorite film- Wanted. I hate everything about this movie, and after seeing it I swore no more boy movies where a guy blows shit up while a hot girl watches. The rhetoric and narrative of this movie was not only stupid (magic loom, anyone?), but it is a truly disturbing manifestation of what these films espouse. Violence can make average (white) men extraordinary, return to the the power and control they've lost living corporate lives, and push anyone who isn't white or male into a submissive position (because white men are obviously the smartest when you put a gun in their hand). Just thinking about this movie riles me up, and I sure as hell am not ever watching it again.
