Please just try to shake off the “No-humor-for-you” type of people who miss the point of an entertainment article, which was in praise Xena, yet that’s not enough for them such that they have to come correct every little thing as though it’s a thesis. The point, as well as the humor and sarcasm is lost on them. But no worries, plenty of the rest of us got it :)
Xena was brilliant at so many things…humor, drama, ferocity & kicking butt, skimpy outfits, banter and wit, Xena’s brilliant strategizing, and the litany of baddies they had to fight, who were all so equally great that you enjoyed watching them just as much. You never knew what was coming next, funny, serious, musical-and they did it all well. The writers blended Xena into Greek mythology, because you know those male historians were not interested in recording the exploits of women who made them look bad. lol! Can you imagineastudio killing off Batman or Spiderman and NOT bringing them back inamovie? No!! That’s what Universal has done to Xena by not bringing her back inamovie.
There hasn’t beenamovie for Wonder Woman, Buffy or Xena since the end of their successful series thanks to Hollywood’s age & gender bias. But if Bruce Willis, Jeff Bridges, Liam Neeson, Nicolas Cage, Mickey Rourke, Tommy Lee Jones, Sly Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and Robert Downey Jr can keep starring in action roles and doing sequels, then why can’t we getaXena movie with Lucy and Renee? Lucy is years younger than ALL of those actors. Lucy & Renee are still fit and looking AH-mazing. Combined with today’s technology, there’s no reason for this bias toward talented, beautiful actresses. They deserve to reprise their roles just like these actors listed are doing. Society needs to see strong, independent women in the leading roles in movies. We need people like you, Hilary, to expose the inequality in movies and help push to bring iconic female heroes to the movies! Please sign the petition: Xena Movie Petition
