Check Out The Most Misogynistic Movies In Hollywood

Though filmmaking concepts are changing, there are still many movies that are just ridiculous. Check out the most misogynistic movies in Hollywood.

In our life with so much hustle, we watch movies to escape reality while on a comfy couch. But this time you have decided to analyse the film (that you’ve watched a thousand times earlier) rather than casually watching it. Hollywood has tons of movies that show under-representation or misrepresentation of women. Hollywood movies are mostly male-centric that have an actress for the actors to save them.

Whether it’s your favourite Spider-Man movies or the Twilight saga, actresses are only there to be saved or for intimate scenes. Though filmmaking concepts are changing, there are still many movies that are just ridiculous. Check out the most misogynistic movies in Hollywood.

Fifty Shades Of Grey
Starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades Of Grey was an immediate box office success, breaking numerous box office records and earning over $570 million worldwide. Interestingly, the movie got negative reviews from critics but fans went crazy when it was released in theatres. Fifty Shades Of Gray might be a fan’s favourite movie but it’s one of the most misogynistic movies ever. The movie includes cringe-worthy dialogue, abuse and moreover, Jamie Dornan’s character, Christian Grey was continuously dominating Anastasia Steele in all three instalments.

The Twilight Saga follows a teenage girl, Bella Swan played by Kristen Stewart and a vampire, Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson. The movie is about a love story of a girl and a vampire and the subsequent efforts of Edward and his family to keep Bella safe from a coven of evil vampires. Though the plotline was good, Bella was just underrepresented. Precisely, Bella was a ‘damsel in distress,’ who is obsessed with Edward and loses interest in every other thing.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Starring Johnny Depp in lead, the Disney movie was a blockbuster hit. The story follows pirate Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and blacksmith Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) as they rescue the kidnapped Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) from the cursed crew of the Black Pearl, captained by Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), who become undead skeletons in the moonlight. However, in the movie, the female lead, Elizabeth Swann, played by Keira Knightley, shows herself to be an intelligent, independent, and capable young woman, but later she still NEEDS to be SAVED by her suitor.

The 2002 Spider-Man, starring Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst was unbelievable! It seems like the makers cast Kirsten Dunst’s character, Mary Jane Watson, just to be alternately adored and rescued by Spider-Man/Peter Parker.

The Godfather
The Godfather is the greatest example of a Classical movie. However, who else thought that this movie can also fall under the example of the most misogynistic movie? In the movie, Michael Corleone is supposed to be a man for whom family means everything. However, the way he treats his own wife, Kay, proves otherwise. He constantly underestimates and patronizes her. And in the end, Kay becomes a submissive wife to fit the mould of what the movies depicted as ‘Italian mothers.’
