Ghostbusters & Ocean's 8 – Are Gender Flips Feminist? | Chick Flix Film Club #3 Making It: Women in Film

Welcome to the third edition of the Chick Flix Film Club! A programme presented by She Sources and Making It: Women in Film, airing the first Monday of every month. This month, we discuss the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters, and the Ocean's-franchise spin-off Ocean's 8. Both of these movies are "gender flips" of previously male-led franchises, and received a fair amount of backlash – especially Ghostbusters, which has become a poster child for the campaign against gender flipping. Today we discuss the backlash, whether or not it was all a cheap gimmick, and then fall into a rabbit hole rant about J*mes C*rden's appearance in Ocean's 8. Timestamps: Ghostbusters | 00.00 – 22.00 Birds of Prey | 22.00 – 52.00 Movies for October: Midsommar (2019, dir. Ari Aster) A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014, dir. Ana Lily Amirpour) This episode was made by Lauren Piskothy (She Sources, co-host), Lauren San Miguel (MIWIF, co-host) and Malin Evita (MIWIF, co-host and editor.)
