tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Or at least the trailer to that movie! Well, someone has! Check out the exclusive (parody) trailer for “The Twit Network” right here on Rated Awesome!

The Bechdel Test for Women in Movies

tags: , , , , , , , , ,

The Bechdel Test is a simple way to gauge the active presence of female characters in Hollywood films and just how well rounded and complete those roles are.

It demonstrates how little women's complex and interesting lives are underrepresented or non existent in the film industry. We have jobs, creative projects, friendships and struggles among many other things that are actually interesting in our lives... so Hollywood, start writing about it!

It features an all-bird cast (trained by George Burton) acting out a story involving Taxi Driver Bill Singer wooing his beloved Coo whilst fighting off a parakeet-devouring crow! This clip features a tour of the town of Chirpendale and its inhabitants. Oddly enough, the film won a special Academy award "In which artistry and patience blended in a novel and entertaining use of the medium of motion pictures".
