Episode 87 – Gender Ratings: A Good or Bad Idea?

Which Harry Potter films pass the Bechdel test?
Which Harry Potter films pass the Bechdel test?

This week, Rhonda and I talk about the recent implementation by a handful of Swedish cinemas to rate movies based on the Bechdel test. We discuss whether this is a fair means of measuring the worth of a movie or if the test itself is too limiting. Would a gender rating influence your movie selection on a Saturday night?

In our WRaP segment, we discuss listener feedback about using the pay-to-play model as a challenge instead of a deterrent.

As always, we love your feedback and comments on the show. Keep ’em coming!

Until next time, game on!

Regina & Rhonda

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
