X-Men Apocalypse to Center around Magneto/Mystique Romance

~Matt Key So, remember in the X-Men comics how Magneto and Mystique were always all over each other and, from that love, sprang some of the greatest X-Men stories ever written? Oh, wait, no. That was Scott “Cyclops” Summers and Jean “Marvel Girl” Grey. You know, the two heroes that comprised the core of the X-Men team… But, hey! Magneto and Mystique! Why not?? In a report from the Hollywood Reporter, the plot of the anticipated sequel is being “crafted” to revolve around Mystique and Magneto’s relationship. Yeah. Apparently Fox is trying to leverage the Oscar-winning star power of...

Classic Film Through a Feminist Lens: BEACH BLANKET BINGO

  “Just think of me as your Father,” Bullets (Paul Lynde) tells Sugar Kane (Linda Evans) as he helps her slip out of her wet sky-diving suit, revealing the bikini she wears underneath. This line demonstrates where Beach Blanket Bingo sits when viewed through a contemporary lens. It’s problematic. While the teen film has some interesting elements, these are largely overshadowed by the movie’s numerous problems. Beach Blanket Bingo opened April 14, 1965, and is the fifth film in American International Pictures’ Beach Party franchise. The series began with 1963’s Beach Party. There were 10 films made before the series ended with the release of Thunder Alley in...

Classic Film through a Feminist Lens: ‘Where the Boys Are’

. The early years of the 1960s conjure a very specific image in US popular culture. The classic teen film Where the Boys Are is a complicated one. The gorgeous and polished studio picture shows a more layered society as it relates to gender and sexuality than is commonly associated with the early 1960s. The story follows midwestern college students Merritt (Delores Hart), Tuggle (Paula Prentiss), Melanie (Yvette Mimieux) and Angie (singer Connie Francis in her first film role). As the film opens, the girls plan their escape from the snowy confines of their university for Spring Break, and fun in the sun in Ft. Lauderdale. When they arrive, they...
