This Week in Trailers: Beyonce Remakes Fatal Attraction and Paul Rudd Makes...a Brom-Com?

This post has been delayed due to a series of Midwestern airport misadventures, but here's the round-up of last week's trailers: Beyonce in Obsessed, Paul Rudd in I Love You, Man, and Hugh Jackman in X-Men Origins: Wolverine... after the jump!

The Box's Crush of the Week: Deb from Dexter

Of all the lady cops on TV, Debra Morgan from Dexter is my fave. She's a dedicated cop with a very dirty mouth whose aggressive police work often intimidates male co-workers. But Deb (played by Jennifer Carpenter) is more than just another woman acting like one of the guys.

Supporting Movement Friday

This Friday, in an effort to promote thought about how to support women and movement (and/or sports/exercise) in a meaningful, fully inclusive, liberatory manner, I want to point to Maria Tallchief.

Tallchief is the first Native American woman who ‘made it’ as an internationally recognized ballerina. This clip gives a short background:

Maria was a part of a group of...

Best B movie ever!

We hope you’ll agree, and that after you watch it, you’ll join the B-Hive! Feminist, nonprofit media needs YOU!  

 

Here’s the script:

First scene: a cool bee (CB) is hanging out and a new bee (NB) flies up to her

NB: Hey, I haven’t seen you around in awhile. Where have you been?

CB: Oh, nowhere special. I’ve only been hanging...

Women of Color Activism: Buy the Speak! Album

via Ms. Crip Chick

I had the honor of joining radical women of color (many of who are your favorite bloggers, BrownFemiPower, Black Amazon, Little Light, Mamita Mala, Sudy, Nadia, and sooo many more) in putting together an amazing album that chronicles experiences around struggle, love, motherhood, redemption, healing and community. You can cop the CD in January, along with a zine and...

Power Pack: Beyonce Knowles

 

OK, first things first. I love Beyonce. There is no point in me pretending otherwise. I think she is an amazing performer and I totally heart her catchy dance jams. But there is more to Beyonce than a solid hook and a hot ass, and it's time we all took a moment to recognize.

Though her name may not make it onto a plaque in the Feminist Hall of Fame (OMG, wouldn't it be fun if...

Speaking of Fat Girls

Kate Harding over at Shapely Prose (http://kateharding.net/2008/12/09/dear-oprah/) has a fabulous response to Oprah and her latest efforts at losing weight (http://www.omagazine.info/).

That's all that happened here. You got fatter. You're still one of the most accomplished women on the planet. You've still got more money than god. You still give away a lot of that money and do real...

Runaway Bunnies

E! wants us to know just how smart the girls of The Girls Next Door are. Their bios at E! Online even include a "Beauty & Brains" section which detail their ambitions and accomplishments (outside of posing nude).

But if we're supposed to give the Girls credit for intelligence, autonomy, or just plain-old professionalism, then what's with the show's producers constantly...

Fat girls don't do that!

So, let's get the confessionals out of the way.

I'm fat.

Normally, I could give a shit if I'm fat or skinny--I function much along the same lines as Rosie O'Donnell when she said she simply doesn't pay attention to her body enough to know if she is fat or skinny or a spaghetti noodle. I'm the same way.

But being a lover of sports, being a lover of 'movement'--I find...
