The Mummy is a film about a woman having a marvellous time, and I think that’s so beautiful.
Yes, let’s just ignore that whole part in the middle where she was being hunted by a mummy who tried to use her body as a vessel for his dead lover.
I’ve seen a handful of comments like this and I just wanted to address it because I think it’s worth talking about. I realise my summation of the film is flippant; it was an attempt at irony because obviously the movie is full of gruesome death and dismemberment, and I fully agree that Evie is terrorized. But that’s not what the film is about. It’s not about Evie the human sacrifice - that’s something that happens to her but it isn’t who she is.
The point is, the whole plot of The Mummy literally could not happen without Evie pursuing the thing that she loves.
They go out to Hamunaptra because Evie is passionate about knowledge and discovery, and when they get there she is in her element - she is loving every minute of it and she is proud of herself and she is absolutely going to kiss Mr O’Connell. But once that thirst for knowledge and discovery inadvertantly raises Imhotep, and there is literally fire and brimstone raining from the sky, and everyone else is running and hiding, she never ever once despairs. She accepts responsibility, she owns her mistake and she refuses to believe there is nothing to be done. She follows her passions again and decides that more knowledge and more discovery is what’s required. And she’s right. She finds the answer and she takes triumphant pleasure in proving to herself that she is a greater scholar than the ones at Bembridge, the ones who have repeatedly found her lacking.
Do you realise how rare it is for a female character’s intellectual pursuit to be the thing that kicks off the action and the thing that saves the day, AND a source of ultimate joy in her life?
When Imhotep comes for her she goes without a fight, to save her companions’ lives, because she knows that’s the best chance they have. When Rick and Jonathan and Ardeth come to save her she is pivotal in her own rescue. She is never a Damsel, she is always part of the team.
And then Evie SAVES THE WORLD. She saves the world by doing the thing that she loves and is good at. She saves the world, she gets the guy, and they ride off into the sunset with some treasure. And really, that’s a pretty good end to a day.
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
I don’t agree with you there, ok maybe its different from traditional bdsm culture however you’re making ana out to be completely not in consent of the whole thing, Ana is completely aware of the arrangement and christian even asks her to sign a form to tell him what she likes and doesnt like, if you read the books ana is also the one pushing christian to try new things and they also do have safewords, I dont understand how consensual sex is a sign of rape culture?! Christian however can be controlling and over the top however not for one minute is this shown as being normal, from the start its obvious that he has problems and the book continues to explain what these are and these problems cause himself and Ana to have a lot of arguments, Ana can look after herself she isnt defenseless she’s strong minded and likes what she likes, if she didnt enjoy her relationship with christian she wouldnt be in it, don’t boycott the movie go and see it if after you see it you disagree with me then fair enough just make your own opinion and dont follow general tumblr consensus.
Consent should always be open to negotiation at any time - a signed form in which one person makes the rules and the other has to irreversibly agree to them is the very opposite of healthy consent.
Christian ignores Ana’s safe word on various occasions and doesn’t provide after care, and a Dom that not only engages with someone so sexually inexperienced but engages in such a controlling way is an abusive Dom, and just further demonstrates Ms. James’ ingorance on BDSM.
Also, these are characters, not real people. They have no autonomy, they do only what the writer dictates, and the writer created a very abusive relationship (and having ‘a lot of problems’ is absolutely not an excuse for being abusive).
People are reading these books as a portrayal of a romantic relationship and a guide book to BDSM, when the opposite could not be more true. It also perpetuates the idea that men must be dominant and women must be submissive for sex to be ‘sexy’, which is utter bullshit. The influence this book is damaging real people. That’s the issue here.
