My Milkshake Brings All the Girls

You know when you just look at a cast and say, damn, I don’t care if it’s good or not. I am going to watch the shit out of that. And that’s exactly how I feel about “Gunpowder Milkshake.” The new action thriller about an organization of elite female assassins stars Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Angela Bassett, Michelle Yeoh and Carla Gugino. Oh and I guess maybe some dudes, like Paul Giamatti or whatever. But, yeah. That cast, ladies, THAT CAST. Netflix won the U.S. rights to the movie, which means I’m going to be very happy on my couch in the not-too-distant future. And, a sequel is apparently already in the works, according to Deadline. As with the planned follow-up for “The Old Guard,” a lady could get positively used to seeing all these amazing women starring in their own action flicks. And casting Luce the Florist and Amy Pond as mother-daughter? Yes, and thank you.
Also, the behind-the-scenes photos on female-fronted action films are so much better than the dude ones. Like, could you see the cast of “The Expendables” doing this? Carry on, ladies, carry on.

DS have you seen The Nevers? Is it worth it? Is it gay? (As in lady gays, of course )

I searched for this movie's trailer I did not see the lovely ladies I was hoping for. Guess I have to keep waiting.

Carmen - I've been watching The Nevers and I like it. It's sort of a steampunk Victorian X-Men, except 90% of the people with superpowers are women. Like the X-Men, each super-person has a unique power, and there are both good and evil super-people at war with each other (as well as several factions of non-super people, like crime bosses and nefarious government officials). There is one non-binary actor on the show (Vinnie Heaven), but so far, no gay lady action. Still, it's fun to watch lots of female characters kicking ass, and the plot is very twisty.

Wut? Lena is playing Karen’s mother? Surely not? I think there’s barely 14 years between them.
That’s plain wrong.
