One of the stimulating things about LJ is that you never know when the Messerschmidts are going to come diving at you out of the sun. |
Mainly you're among friends, but it's a public arena and anything is possible.
I like it that it's public. Yeah, I do really.
My French was stretched....
That's fascinating about the "last girl".
I've never paid much attention to slasher movies. I watched Scream because it was supposed to be all intelligent and post-modern, but that's about it. The genre just doesn't attract me.
But Buffy, Xena and anything else with a female action hero is very much my thing. I identify with those gals where I don't identify with the poor kid being chased by the evil dude in the mask- no matter how androgynous she is.
But I also identify with the heroine's geeky sidekicks. If anything I'm more Gabrielle than Xena, more Willow than Buffy. So what's all that about?
Maybe it's just that sidekicks are more accessible than superheroes. :)
I also tend to identify more with the sidekicks. But I do find Willow to be one of the most wholly-realized characters I've ever come across, and I think in some ways she had a way more interesting story arc than Buffy.
I agree about Willow. That was a great story arc. And for a geek like me- much more at home with books and computers than martial arts- one I could readily identify with.
Also Allison Hannigan is just so unbelievably cute.
