Future's so bright...

So, here is another example of why you need both men AND women in the media. The indie entertainment magazine Paste sent out a press release yesterday listing the “top ten most significant shade-wearing roles of all time.” Yeah, it was pretty random, but you know how America can’t resist a list. Anyway, as I checked it out something struck me. See if you can spot what’s missing…

10. Men in Black
9. Midnight Run
8. Blade
7. Cool Hand Luke
6. Top Gun
5. Reservoir Dogs
4. The Matrix
3. Risky Business
2. The Terminator
1. Blues Brothers

Guess what’s not there? Say, oh I don’t know, how about any predominantly FEMALE shade wearing roles. What about “Lolita?” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s?” “Thelma & Louise?” Come on, boys, I know you can do better.
