You could not find a better way to market a movie to me than getting men's rights activists to boycott it http://t.co/0pbUZr6VCF

Yeah, I cannot think of anything more likely to get me to pay for a ticket to the not-exactly-in-my-wheelhouse Mad Max reboot than the tears of “men’s rights advocates” man-babies. From the THR article:
…[Blogger] Aaron Clarey admits he has not seen the film yet, but his self-proclaimed “spidey sense” noticed that Charlize Theron “talked a lot during the trailers” for the film, and he said Tom Hardy only seemed to have cameo appearances. “Charlize Theron’s character barked orders to Mad Max,” writes Clarey on Return of Kings. “Nobody barks orders to Mad Max.”
Clarey did not like reading reviews commending Theron for many of her action scenes, nor did he appreciate the news that the movie’s director, George Miller, asked Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler to consult with the five actresses who play sex slaves in the film. (Theron’s character plays a road warrior fighting to lead the child-bearing women to safety.)
Clarey writes that he is concerned “men in America and around the world are going to be duped by explosions, fire tornadoes, and desert raiders into seeing what is guaranteed to be nothing more than feminist propaganda, while at the same time being insulted AND tricked into viewing a piece of American culture ruined and rewritten right in front of their very eyes.”…
Never mind Auntie Entity, Tina Turner could probably beat any of these snivelers into submission, even if she is old enough to be their mothers (who are probably ashamed of their worthless kids)…
Apart from summer entertainment options, what’s on the agenda as we wrap up the week?
