Interesting article. I guess it's just not something I've ever given a lot of thought to.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

I liked the article and thought it was interesting. I too have never watched a movie and thought a certain character should have been a woman. Although, I've always hated how women in horror movies, until the last several years, have always portrayed women as dim-witted bimbo's that run away screaming. I do like how there seems to be more of a trend where women are central characters in movies that aren't playing the stereo-typical role and are strong women. Like Renee' said, there aren't many female directors. Not sure if that's because they aren't interested in being directors or if it's more difficult for women to break into the directing role.

I like to look at men too but I also enjoy watching movies where women play a strong female character. emoticon

Interesting, but I've never watched a movie and thought this or that character should have been a woman. I don't reckon I've really noticed there not being enough women in film... I have noticed that there aren't many female directors, but maybe there aren't as many 'wanting' to do that, who knows...

I do like seeing more movies where women "man up" LOL! and stop the running and falling and screaming and being stupid all the time.

But, personally, I prefer to look at men anyhow. emoticon
