Does A Woman Need To Be In A Fight Scene With Ben Affleck To Get Her Own Action Movie? It's Happened More Than Once


As a female that loves action movies, I am so glad to see that the Wonder Woman movie was a great film and thrilled that it is doing so well at the box office.



Yet it makes me wonder does a woman need to be in a fight scene with Ben Affleck in order to get her own action movie?  You see Wonder Woman is a spin off from Batman v Superman



You see this is not the first time it has happened.

In the 90s the character Elektra was given her own movie after her popularity fight scenes in the Daredevil movie which starred Ben Affleck as the Marvel Superhero.


 



I hope this will not always be the case. 

Or maybe a female hero has to be introduced in movie that 1st featured a male hero? Such was the case with Marvel’s Agent Carter.  The character of Peggy Carter was introduced in the Captain America film.  When she was going to get her own series I was thrilled and watched every episode (as I did with the Wonder Woman television show back in the 70s). Unfortunately the viewership must not have been there as it was cancelled after the second season.

I still hold out hope for Captain Marvel.  I hope her stand alone film will not be treated as a spinoff.  I hope she gets all the attention.

Maybe it’s time to re-watch films like Alien, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Underworld and other films that feature female leads in action roles.  Now with all the data being mined from downloads, on demand and streaming perhaps it will make those decision makers realize that women can hold their own in action films.

Please don’t see this as negative towards the other super hero action or action movies. I still love them all.  See everyone at THOR Ragnarok.

Easy Tricks To Remove Facebook Status Colour Backgrounds - What The Web Wednesday

You've heard the grumbling about the colour backgrounds on facebook.  Here are 3 easy tricks to get rid of those backgrounds.
  1. Keep typing.  If you make your status long enough it will stay as the small text
  2. Include a link to an post that is the same topic as your status and it will pull a picture from it.
  3. Upload a picture and then add your status.
  4. If you just want to put a short status, then instead of picking a colour from the list, under the colours click STICKERS and pick a sticker that works with your status. See the example below

Earth Week 2017 - Simple Ways To Save Energy

While solar panels and wind farms are becoming more popular, they still are not the norm in neighbourhoods and community areas.  Instead we are more familiar with power lines and hydro towers. 

We all try to do our part to save energy whether is making sure to turn the lights off when we leave the room or using timers on devices.  Making small changes help save energy and save on the amount we spend on utilities.

Here are a few other ideas that may help reduce your monthly energy usage and water consumption.


My trick is to cook several “long cook” items at once in the oven and use them over the next few days. Learn more about this simple trick.


Try to keep the oven off altogether.


Learn a new way to save water by trying out this recipe.






Use your time on long weekends wisely.

Scheduling my laundry days 
around statutory holidays to
take advantage of All Day
Off Peak hydro rates
because I'm cool like
that.

Have a unique idea save energy? I'd love to hear all about it! Leave a comment below.
