Movies that Matter is the podcast going beyond basic film criticism to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Mar 14, 2019

Lexy and Nicole discuss Captain Marvel, disagree on Brie Larson’s performance, the movie’s place in the Marvel MCU, compare it to 2017’s Wonder Woman, and discuss how Disney tackles feminism. We talk about how ultimately the movie fails to create a fully developed female character and that drags down any message it’s sending. Naturally the trolls came out of the woodwork on this one; read how content managers are struggling to handle the issue.

Lexy recommends My Hero Academia. Nicole recommends the Call Your Girlfriend episode The Women’s March (or why the only drama problem is no drama at all) and Fat Mascara’s episode on vaginal rejuvenation.
