Katniss Everdeen, Hanna, and Hollywood's Skewed Perception of Moviegoers

How could I have missed the movie Hanna with Saoirse Ronan?  Check out the incredible movie site!  I'm definitely buying the DVD on September 6th.

If you're wondering if I have a blurting problem, the above does pertain to something I read while completely ignoring my weekend visitor, Irene Hurricane.  Hollywood executives wrongly surmised after reviewing poor ticket sales for the movie Sucker Punch that people won't go see action movies that star women.  Huh?


I just want good, quality entertainment and it doesn't matter who's in it.  (Hanna was mentioned in the article and I researched it.  Now I'm sorry I didn't see it in the theater.)  I can't help wondering what those same Hollywood executives will say after the release of The Hunger Games.  You can bet your auntie's glass eye people are going to see this action movie driven completely by the female protagonist Katniss Everdeen, portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence.

Did you hear the four musical notes (Rue's tune) at the end?  It gave me goose bumps.  A nice teaser!

Will you see action movies starring female actors?  Did anyone see Hanna?  What did you think of the first look at The Hunger Games trailer?


  1. Yes, I will definitely see action movies with female actors, as long as it's entertaining, I'll take it! I DID watch Hanna (I really admire Saoirse Ronan as well, she's such a great actress) but didn't really like it, I thought it was the plot that was at fault and lack of character explanations, I hope you feel differently! And man I had chills at the 4 notes!!

  2. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions
    to protect against hackers?
