Episode # 182: Somethin’ for the Ladies

Here is an episode prominently featuring women.  Mostly dramatic material, as we opted away from the fluff often presented with female leads.  Things have changed a lot with film-making and the stories written; some things have changed slower and less than others.  We present you with some exceptions to often silly rules.
 
BTW, the trailers are mostly bad - trust our thoughts on these movies not being what is promoted.  Girl in the Book is the only one that is even close..
 
Here is a review of Girl in the Book by the L.A. Times, proof that even some critics missed the mark.
 
Note:  the last song is Drain S.T.H.  An all-female Swedish band that never got much radio play, they feel like a female Alice in Chains (high praise).  Matt wasn't sure if they had any videos, as none really played on tv - here's the opening track off 1 of 2 albums:  I Don't Mind.  Though all gorgeous, they did not feature any photos in the debut album.  EMI - please don't pull this; we are showcasing your products..  go buy their albums if you like what you hear, folks.  
 
PS:  Matt has since watched Trainwreck & enjoyed it.  Not hilarious for his taste, but easily worth a watch. Kobe is pretty good in it (as is a surprise athlete)..
