    When I saw the movie (excellent, by the way) there was a bunch of teenage girls sitting in the back of the theater.

    I wondered if they had accidentally gone to the wrong movie, and later I noticed they had disappeared.

    I mentioned this to the girl at the concessions counter when I was refilling my popcorn and drink.  She said they had switched to Charlie’s Angels, which was playing in the next auditorium.

    Good luck with that.

    Never any successful female-led action movies?  The Resident Evil movies seemed to do okay.  And maybe Underworld too, although I’m not a fan of those for other reasons.

    I owned a Triumph TR-8 back in the 80s.  And they did very well in racing too.  But as I remember reading back then, in some ways it’s not particularly useful to notice that Porsche “won” pretty much all of the races back then, because they were Porsche CARS run by a number of racing “teams” or whatever, and if you have 50 Porsches and one Triumph in a race, the chances are very good that A Porsche will win. But that doesn’t really prove Porsche superiority.  49 Porsches can lose wheels or blow an engine or whatever, and there’s still one left to win.

    Gotta give a shout out to the movie Knight and Day.  Really fun movie.  The plot is a total mcguffin, but the actors make it work.

    I’m pretty sure they were being sarcastic about the silly excuses Elizabeth Banks — who had co-starred in the successful “Hunger Games” movies herself — was using to explain away the failure of her film at the box office.
