Mad Max: Fury Road.' So the premiere of the most recent 'Mission Impossible' film got me thinking--why are there so many bikini shots in action movies and why are they excessively highlighted in the trailers? Most action films appear to feature a mandatory "bikini shot" of a scantily clad woman, who is either in a bikini or perhaps nothing at all. These flashes of boob and butt don't have anything to do with the storyline and seem to be placed in a montage of fast cutting scenes with no dialogue, which is typically toward the middle or the end of the trailer. Who needs dialogue when you can have "TNA?"

83 old (and unseemly) blog posts. Now I've decided to remove 44 blogs from my feed. Some of the blogs I unfollowed because they've gone by the wayside or haven't been updated in a long time. However, the vast majority of blogs I unfollowed were bloggers who...for whatever reason...did not interact...at least not with me. I am in no way taking it personally so I hope the bloggers I unfollowed don't take it personally either, but I blog to be a part of a community. Listed below are the four reasons I unfollowed a blog.

my very first blogathon based on Lifehacker's "This is How I Work" and "What's in My Bag" series.' Most blogathons I've participated in have been about movies or television. So for my first blogathon I didn't want another top 10 list. Instead I wanted to get the inside scoop on my fellow bloggers themselves and how they work. The results have been wonderful.

Katy's Dream Vacation Blogfest. The blogfest is ongoing so if you want to be a part of it, visit Katy and let her know. "If you could travel to any place in the film universe with any of your favorite characters or love-to-hate villains, what kind of a vacation would you take? Post your choice(s) of a destination(s), and at least three characters who would tag along." I have to say this has been my favorite blogfest in a long time because it allowed me to be incredibly imaginative!

Zack Synder arrived at SDCC in the batmobile. Some people may think that's cool, but I think it borders on "douchey."

ARE SUPERHERO FILMS "MORE" SEXIST,? STAR WARS MASHUP, THOR'S JAMIE ALEXANDER IN 'BLINDSPOT,' COSPLAY, + LINKS
|Cara Delevingne as the Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn|
'SUICIDE SQUAD,' 2016, Warner Brothers
"three girls in [Suicide Squad]...have the best roles...but generally...superhero films are totally sexist. Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis. No one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute."

The original 'Terminator' was low budget, gritty, sleek, and violent. I believe it had a "R" rating, as have the subsequent two films (excluding 'Terminator: Salvation'). Unfortunately, 'Terminator: Genisys' has been rated PG-13 for the ultimate cash grab. The PG-13 rating means that 'Terminator: Genisys' is watered down in every way. I don't particularly like violent or sexually exploitative films, however, I do think that some films should be marketed to adults. Now be prepared...because I'm going to make my fifth or sixth 'Mad Max: Fury Road' reference now. 'Fury Road' was neither uber violent, nor were there any sex scenes, however, the movie was clearly not for the kiddos and the "R" rating reflected that.
