How Often Does This Happen?

So the Wonder Woman 1984 flick has been released. Since I do not have HBO Max, I didn’t actually see it, but I have watched plenty of reviews. As always, the Critical Drinker handles it best

In the movie, there is the Kristin Wiig character. It is a variation on a common cliche, the sexy librarian type. Though she isn’t so really sexy we are told, because she is shy and lacks confidence. She wishes to be like Diana Prince, who has the looks, the confidence, the style, the delivery, etc.

So how does such a character come into being in real life? Probably she would be an introvert to start with. As she was entering her mid teens, she probably started noticing that the fellas were paying more attention to her. Many of them were being rather nice. People (other that same age cohort female rivals) tend to be rather nice to pretty young ladies. They usually give them the benefit of the doubt. This period would be a prime opportunity for for a young lady to develop her social skills. Undoubtedly in the olden days (and maybe sometimes today), there would be a Mom or Aunt in the background coaching her. With this situation, one wonders how a lady as the Kristin Wiig character could come to exist.

On the other hand, a typical shy young male (teens, early twenties) is normally not particularly well liked. Not many are a stud or sports star. They pretty much have little opportunity to develop their social skills. So with respect to this mirror image, it rather easy to see how the common cliche with respect to fellas gets a footing.

Exit question — Is this sexy librarian thing just a movie cliche, or does this kind of thing happen in real life?

    THIS never happens in real life!
    This is the ultimate female shape.
    Notice how sexy she is even fully covered shoulders to knees.

    I am thinking that lots of Lynda Carter pictures/videos on this thread is a thing that is going to happen

    Is the difference with respect to the Kristen Wiig character being able to navigate life the presence or absence of a mentor?

    My fist NYE issue resolved. I have half a bottle of Shiraz from last night. In my defence, I was cat-attacked and couldn’t reach the bottle. But I need to be drinking fizzy white tonight (after finishing the red).

    But is red wine then white ‘safe’? According to ze French

    Blanc sur rouge : rien ne bouge. Rouge sur blanc : tout fout le camp

    White on red : Nothing moves. Red on white : Everything’s going to hell.


    Obviously the bottle will be opened for 11pm Great Patriarchal Time. When we complete the transition out of the beloved EU.

    I’ve made a new post for the festive stuff. Apologies for:
    a) not doing it sooner
    b) not clearing it with Farm Boy

    I’d forgotten how close the Kiwis and Aussies were to the future

    This sets up a dynamic where formal electoral challenges from both chambers of congress will be taking place based on evidence of election fraud in several key states. The objection will initiate a debate and roll-call vote to certify electors within both the House and Senate. Vice-President Mike Pence will preside over the debate in the Senate.

    A combination of The Guarantee Clause (constitution) and the Electoral Count Act of 1887 (law), establishes the framework for some to argue a fraudulent 2020 election result can successfully be challenged during congressional certification on January 6, 2021.

    I do see a lot of scripts where the “message” of the movie is given more importance than the story, and those scripts are predictable and boring. The heart of movie-making is story, no matter the issue you are attempting to address, and if you don’t make the story work, your message will flop anyway.

    I also think that in today’s industry, the financial repercussions of making a bad story have been mitigated by streaming services and cable fees, so that many movies are greenlit based on factors other than good story-telling

    Bias by omission was the theme Tuesday for ABC, CBS, and NBC. While they ignored a dubious Democratic campaign event in Georgia and liberal California releasing sex offenders, they also turned a blind eye to an attack in Aspen, Colorado by eco-terrorists who targeted natural gas lines in the area, and killed the heat to around 3,500 customers as temperatures dropped to near ZERO with a snowstorm rolling in.

    Another government figure has been slammed for lecturing people to stay home to keep COVID cases down, while not even bothering to do so himself.

    Ontario’s Finance Minister Rod Phillips has been slammed for asking people to ‘make sacrifices’ and forget about going on holiday, while himself jetting off to the Caribbean.

    I don’t know how they do things in the NHS, but most American MDs wouldn’t know how to give a shot if you put a gun to their head. Dermos and Gas-passers, yes. Anybody else? Don’t think so.

    THE EU could be ready to hit the UK with a huge trade retaliation just as Britain is hours away from finally leaving the European Union transition period. The EU (Future Relationship) Act received the backing of the Commons and Lords as the Government rushed approval through both Houses in a single day.

    From the very beginning I’ve said that negotiating with the EU was just a waste of time.
