Oh, I'll be passing on the community (I feel that's to narrow a criteria to judge films), but I agree with that one post, that board doesn't look good in purple.

I don't judge films on whether or not they fit a strict criteria put forth by an interest group. I try to judge a film on its own merit. But this is the same arguement we've had before about it.

i don't remember having this argument really, but ok. i evaluate films by lots of criteria, one of them happens to be a set determined by the fact that i consider myself a feminist.

so i guess what i am saying is, are you saying it's wrong for me to do so, or to seek out feminist films, or are you saying that you just don't want to? it sounds like you're saying i don't judge a film by its own merit.

You had a post about looking for different things in films (female characters talking to other female characters about something other than men, etc.)

I didn't say 'wrong,' because what you do on your own time is your own thing, and more power to you. I said I wouldn't be doing it. No value judgment intended.

or to seek out feminist films, or are you saying that you just don't want to? it sounds like you're saying i don't judge a film by its own merit.

Not what I meant. I would rather participate in a list about discussing movies, or movies of certain type, rather than movies viewed through a certain perspective. (i.e., I would do a list about zombie movies, but not a list for Catholic movie watchers.) The main point of this list will be discussing movies from a feminist perspective, and really, that's too narrow a scope for me.
