R.I.P. George Romero (1940-2017)

Image
The world has lost a visionary today. Not only a pioneer of the zombie movie but a pioneer of representation and social commentary in film. FAR ahead of his time on race and gender issues. Take a look at some of the reactions from notable people of color on Twitter:

George Romero made a film where the levelheaded Black hero survives zombies only to be killed by scared whites. Almost unfathomable in 1968. — Saladin Ahmed (@saladinahmed) July 17, 2017


Never forgotten my awe at seeing NotLD - a black actor! Open acknowledgement of race/gender politics! That made it scarier. — N. K. Jemisin (@nkjemisin) July 16, 2017
As well as other notables:


Romero used genre to confront racism 50 years ago. He always had diverse casts, with Duane Jones as the heroic star of NOTLD. — Eli Roth (@eliroth) July 16, 2017


George Romero was a great director, the father of modern horror movies. He was my friend and I wil…

Happy 26th Birthday Terminator 2: Judgment Day!

Image
In celebration of the 26th anniversary of one of the greatest science fiction films ever made, we have a couple goodies for you today. First of all, above we have one of the official trailers. However, we also have something a little bit more interesting: a blog post by Andy W. Taylor about Sarah Connor and the strong female character. I love the analysis here, making an argument for Sarah as a strong female lead not only in the second Terminator movie but also the first. It also mentions in passing James Cameron's track record of writing compelling, complex, badass female lead characters, which is excellent. In addition to Connor, Ripley in the Alien movies is the most salient example but the self-sacrificing Lindsey Brigman in The Abyss deserves some credit as well and even Rose Dewitt Bukater in Titanic is woefully underrated as far as badass female lead characters go, breaking out of the bondage of her abusive patriarchal engagement of convenience, literally spitting in the f…
