With the summer blockbusters coming in, I was reminded of this test...
A movie passes the Bechdel test if it satisfies the following requirements:
1. It has to have at least two women in it,
2. Who talk to each other,
3. About something besides a man.
The last two movies I saw were Coraline (which passes with shining colours -- Coraline talks to her mom and the other residents of the apartment about lots of stuff), and Star Trek (that sort of barely makes it because two of the women talk about work. In one scene. Before getting distracted by a mostly naked man. Hrm.)
Think about the last few movies you saw. Do they pass?
