Good Movies

Today it's back to school, and back to blogging too. Since I'm in a very happy mood (thank all the sweets the Befana brought), this post is on a positive note.

4 Good & Feminist Movies
A post with a stupid title by The Ranting Teenager, and they're not actually all movies, but really, whatever.

1. THE BARBIE MOVIES: These have had really a lot of success in Italy, despite Barbie's obvious non-perfection. The first ones followed the usual fairytale scheme, including girl, prince and marriage. However the girl tends to actually do something. Then they started doing re-makes of famous classics, like "Barbie the Princess and the Pauper", "Barbie and the Christmas Carol" and "Barbie and the Three Musketeers." And barbie doesn't always marry at the end. In fact, in "Barbie and the Three Musketeers" she clearly puts her career before the prince, which she saves. Of course she always looks pretty while doing it all, but so does Superman, for that matter.

2. ATOMIC BETTY: Atomic betty is a cartoon character. And she's awesome. She is a normal girl-and by normal I don't mean cool and fashionable or wishing to be so- who also leads a team of galactic superheroes. She can also play sports exceedingly well.

3.A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS: The story of three siblings and their onfortunate lives. It's funny in a dark sort of way, and very well made. Violet, the eldest, is a genial scientist, her little sister Sunny can bite and their brother Klaus knows thousands of things.

4.THE WINX CLUB: This series has had enormous success in Italy, and little girls are bombarded with propaganda for Winx dolls, Winx cups, Winx bags, Winx magazines, Winx wallpapers...well, despite their teeny-weeny waists and always perfect appearence, I admit that I really like them. At least, I'd better, since my sister keeps them on tv 24/7, when it's not Hannah Montana. The Winx are fairies who have to save the world while developing their personal talents and having cute boyfriends. They fight against a band of witches and a band of wizards, and they always win. They're boyfriends, on the other side, always need to be saved. But often they co-operate. At the end of the show they sing hideous inspirational songs.
