Sharing my thoughts on the 2014 movie Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck. The film touches on a lot of issues regarding gender as well as race and privilege, so naturally, I had to take a swing at it.
EPIC SPOILER ALERT! Do not listen to this episode of the show if you haven't yet seen the movie or read the book Gone Girl. Mainly because I don't want to be the one to ruin such a great story for you.
I discuss how men are often unfairly portrayed by the media, and how women are often idolized and seen as "pure." I also discuss how Gillian Flynn tackles the topic of privilege and why it's such an important conversation for us to be having.
At the top of the show, I talk about the newly released trailer for the upcoming Ghostbusters film featuring an all-female team. I was not particularly fond of the new trailer, but I hope the actual movie is more impressive. Let me know what you thought of the trailer and how you think the film will do in the box office this year!
