When Women Ruled the World

I can’t even find a good image for this film.

When Women Ruled the World

What the Hell is this?  I don’t really know.  Everyone in this movie is a useless moron. You’ll cheer when they die! Yay, death! You’ll see pregnant men!  Violent women!  Leftist diatribes!

Why did I pick this? Things happen after a three martini dinner. I recommend the same for anyone watching this.  I scanned it, making sure there was some amusing bits, and then chose it.  Hey, it’s been a hard few months!  It seemed like a good idea when I picked this film.  Independent film, check.  Seldom seen by anyone, check. Singular vision, check. So laugh at this train wreck and realize that if even five of us watch this, the audience over time has just doubled.

Enjoy as our protagonists (antagonizing protagonists) are sucked into an alternate timeline where angry, violent women rule the world.  This is different from now, where warmongering men rule the world.  Which is better? You’ll be able to say after watching this film.  Surely.

This film got 3 of 10 stars, s0 I figured it would be fun to read some  reviews from IMDB!  Here’s the top review:

“There are definitely anti-capitalist, pro-environmentalist, feminist tones presented in really campy ways. The movie could serve as a fun jaunt in beginner’s leftist topics. It draws on stereotypes from both sides.”

Oh wait – there was only one user review.  Thank you, intrepid reviewer. And the review is right, this is a film that tried WAY too hard to sell a point.  Case in point – about 30 minutes in the head leftist queen rants about Trump destroying the world fighting Putin.  Hilarious.  If only they knew what we know now.

This movie is the singular vision (see statement above) of writer/director Sheldon Silverstein, a man with six credits as a producer.  One film he was responsible for is The Erotic Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, which I damn well wish I had a trailer for!  I’d show that tonight!

This movie may or may not be based on an actual book, by the same title.  Probably not.  The title of this film may be inspired by the book title, at least.

So watch!  Or Don’t! Or talk amongst yourselves! Everything is voluntary! Next week is “You asked for it” week: Sharkula!  As the trailer says, “This great white is putting the bite back into terror!” After that, we are overdue for either a western or a kung fu film.  Any preference?

    “After that, we are overdue for either a western or a kung fu film. Any preference?”

    Does it have to be kung fu, or is Korean or Japanese chop socky OK?

    • R.J.

      Any chop – socky, any western that can be shared across multiple regions easily.

          A review of Tears:
          Imagine John Ford (The Searchers), Jean-Luc Godard (Weekend), and John Waters (Pink Flamingos) collaborating on an insane 1950s melodrama, drenched in succulent Technicolor–rose-petal reds, turquoise blues, saffron yellows, and Pepto-Bismol pinks–and you’re just barely encompassing the cinematic delirium of Tears of the Black Tiger. This fever dream of a movie features rival gunslingers, a poor farmboy and the daughter of a wealthy landowner, a murdered father, bloody revenge, a forced marriage, and a half-dozen other cliches stitched into a preposterous yet weirdly engaging story. But the story isn’t the point; director Wisit Sasanatieng takes every opportunity to dive into a different style or device, ranging from delicate shots of a lovely girl in a mint-green gazebo to spewing gore and full-on battle with machine guns and grenade-launchers. The sets are often blatantly theatrical, the lighting exaggerated, and the acting ranges from wooden to maniacal. In short, this Thai movie is like nothing you’ve ever seen, born of a deep moviemania and unbridled chutzpah, and you owe it to yourself to watch it. –Bret Fetzer

          Seriously? I’ve been raving about Tears of the Black Tiger for decades!

          You want westerns – see also “Sukiyaki Western Django” with a cameo by Tarantino, “The Good The Bad and the Weird” and others.

    Either/or surely there is a kung fu western you could show.

    • R.J.

      Absolutely there are.

      • Count Potato

        Kung Fu was a TV western.

    I could go to Boston Swing dances for this.

    Sorry RJ. I’ll pass on this one.

    • R.J.

      Understood.

  5. R.J.

    As a side note, in 2016 around the time this came out it was paraded around by conservative news as another example of the lefties’ besmirching of conservatives. Very true. But this movie is so bad that nobody watched it, not even Trump haters. I had a couple articles lined up to reference but I lost them in a tragic boating accident.

  6. The Bearded Hobbit

    My wife’s cousin is/was an aspiring filmmaker. He made a film at her parents house that I saw once, a long time ago. I would have been perfect for Glibflicks except 1) it was a short (about 20 mins) and b) I cannot find a single reference to it anywhere. He (or at least a guy with his name and similar background) has an entry in IMDB but that movie isn’t listed.

    • R.J.

      I still want to do a post of just shorts, so let me know what f you get a title or link.

      • rhywun

        An ex-buddy has a library of shorts (I’m in one of them) that are comedy gold. Some of it might be inside jokes but the humor in the hijinx of a bunch of drunken twenty-something Americans of all kinds of backgrounds is pretty universal.

      • MikeS

        There’s a Glib who knows some people that may have done some shorts. CRaMP or something like that.

    • Shiny Nerfherder

      Snuff films usually get taken down pretty quickly

      • The Bearded Hobbit

        It’s been so long that I cannot recall the details. The only scene that I remember was a picture from below looking up at my father-in-law as he turned away in disgust saying, “Oh, my God. . .”

        Could have been snuff but I think that the cousin is a whole lot better than that.

    I’m watching football with my husband. That’s about all the stupid fun I can take on this shitshow of a day.

    • The Bearded Hobbit

      I put the game on with the sound off. Occasionally I’ll look at the teevee and see the score, sometimes catching a good play (or the replay).

    • rhywun

      Bills?? I forgot.

      But I am confused. 506 Sports says it’s on NBC but it is not on NBC.

        Ugh, I’m an ass. 20 years later and sometimes I still forget that NBC is 4 here, not 2.

    And we interrupt this movie for a ham-handed lecture about climate change.

    • Zwak. who's suit is as ragged as his nerves.

      It’s like Son Hunter or Don’t Look Up. Political movies, and songs for that matter, only work if you put the politics front and center, which means you have to move the silly things like acting, storyline, and whatnot, off to the side. And this is why the suck so much and are completely laughable six minutes later.

      • Ted S.

        Political movies can work. Look at all the Warner Bros. social commentary movies movies of the 1930s. Granted, they’re not party-political the way the movies of today are, but they still have a decided viewpoint and hold up surprisingly well close to 90 years on.

        • Zwak. who's suit is as ragged as his nerves.

          Yeah, like Leni R’s movies!

      • straffinrun

        That’s why I liked Get Out. It looked liked it was going to make some tired point about racism and then *boom* it was actually about classism instead.

      • Q Continuum

        Political movies, ie: movies with a principled philosophical message, if done well can be utterly genius. Partisan movies, ie: Soviet-style propaganda, current woke bullshit, et. al. are the death of art because of the exact reason you describe. Any artistic merit has to be subordinate to THE MESSAGE and thus destroy and value they might have.

      • R.J.

        I am still amazed this was even released. Maybe it was self-financed?

    • R.J.

      You made it to the lecture! I had many bourbons by that point.

  9. Count Potato

    I’m going to need another bacardi…

    • R.J.

      Just bring the bottle.

    • R.J.

      I have found that Bacardi’s dark rum is a great mixer with Cole, more so than their light rum.

      • R.J.

        Coke? Coleslaw? Fuck it. Typing is optional tonight.

      • Sensei

        Agreed. Also ran out of Coke and used Dr Pepper. Now prefer it to Coke with rum.

        • Mojeaux

          Dr Pepper == liquid carbonated bbq sauce

          • R.J.

            Yep. There is even a Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce that draws on the great tradition of using colas to flavor BBQ.

            • Gustave Lytton

              I would like to learn more.

            • Mojeaux

              IOW, Dr Pepper is disgusting and while I love bbq sauce, I don’t want to drink it, much less with bubbles.

              • Gender Traitor

                You just don’t like Dr. Pepper because it’s TEXAS bbq and not KC bbq! 😉

                I grew up not drinking ANY soft drinks (in a family full of Pepsi drinkers) because I didn’t like the sensation of carbonation. Once I got to college, I took a liking to Mello Yello/Mountain Dew, especially for pulling all-nighters, then 7Up/Sprite when I didn’t want the caffeine. Finally I discovered the joys of Dr. Pepper, and THAT is my soft drink of choice (assuming ginger ale isn’t available.) I still don’t like colas.

              • rhywun

                Not a cola fan either. Can’t remember the last time I drank one.

                I like fruits.

              • MikeS

                I like fruits.

                😑

              • Mojeaux

                My family is full of Dr Pepper addicts. I never liked it. I was in single digits the last time I had it, and I can STILL taste that shit.

                I like fruity tastes too, which is why I like Mt Dew, Sprite, strawberry Shasta, NuGrape, and orange Fanta. I also like root beer and cream soda.

                BUT I am not a real fan of carbonation so I can take it or leave it. Also, drinking my calories makes me balloon immediately, so I don’t.

              • rhywun

                😏

              • Gender Traitor

                I also like root beer and cream soda.

                Brown or red cream soda? I grew up on red cream soda homemade popsicles. BEST POPSICLES IN THE WORLD!!! I don’t think I ever encountered brown (actually beige?) cream soda until I was an adult traveling on the East coast.

              • Mojeaux

                It’s about the color of ginger ale. I never got the point of red cream soda.

                When I was young, there was a soda fountain we occasionally went to and my dad would order a vanilla phosphate. Took me years to realize it was just cream soda.

            • DrOtto

              A local BBQ joint serves “Buford T’s Diablo Sandwhich” which has a Dr. Pepper based BBQ sauce. I ordered as one should “make it fast – I’m in a got-damned hurry” and the kid looked at me funny. The pitmaster laughed and said, “he doesn’t get the reference, I’ll explain it to him.”

            • straffinrun

              I prefer Fanta before it went woke.

          • UnCivilServant

            But Dr Pepper tastes nothing like BBQ sauce.

            • Mojeaux

              It does, but alternatively, prune juice.

              Mt Dew has orange juice in it.

              • UnCivilServant

                Of course Mt Dew has orange juice in it, it’s ingredient #2 behind carbonated water.

      • Gustave Lytton

        I drank a few too many in my younger days (not as many as Rumandcokeski, though) and lost the taste for it. Now I’m clueless as rum world has apparently exploded, but the flavored chick flavors still don’t appeal to me. Sentimental for Pussers.

        • rhywun

          #metoo

          Rum makes me nauseous now.

        • Count Potato

          Rumandcokeski?

          • Gustave Lytton

            Guy with a Polish last name who abused his liberty while drunk. His new nickname has always stuck in my mind in reference to the drink.

      • Count Potato

      I was wondering the other day if there are any Nintendo emulators out there. I really wanna relive some of the golden oldies but I don’t wanna haul the console out of storage.

      I know they are fiercely protective of their brand (shit, I’ve paid for Super Nintendo World how many times now?).

        They’re crazy easy to find online and so are huge libraries of almost every d game ever made. You can dl it to any windows computer, some I’m not sure, but probably.

                In the case of the Pee Dee Watershed, perhaps left unsaid is, “Don’t drink the water!!”

    Why I hate Windows, chapter 27548.

    rant

    Last week I decided to boot my dual boot laptop into Windows t research an issue with my Bluetooth headphones, which are not recognized on Linux (on that rig, they work just fine on the desktop). Turns out they are not recognized on Windows either, Intel did a lousy job with that wireless/Bluetooth device (8265 if you’re keeping score).

    So now I boot back into Linux. What’s this, network is not working? Let’s check with DDG…

    “This is because I was dual booting with Windows. Windows defaults to using “fast start” which hogs the wireless card to itself when shutdown. Turning it off fixed the problem.”

    Fuck Windows.

      They’ll fix that as soon as they support UTC hardware clocks.
