Thelma & Louise
Somebody said get a life... so they did.
Whilst on a short weekend getaway, Louise shoots a man who had tried to rape Thelma. Due to the incriminating circumstances, they make a run for it and thus a cross country chase ensues for the two fugitives. Along the way, both women rediscover the strength of their friendship and surprising aspects of their personalities and self-strengths in the trying times.
Saddest thing about this film is that it'd still seem gutsy if a major studio released it today. Louise's righteous fury just before she pulls the trigger ("In the future, when a woman's crying like that, she isn't having any fun!") has lost none of its accusatory power; that the shooting is unjustified, in response to a crude insult after the immediate danger has passed, is crucial, and it's hard to imagine how it escaped being altered during development. Plus, let's count all the major motion pictures that were subsequently made about two complex women who oh are we done counting already no I'm afraid Bride Wars doesn't qualify. I'm even somewhat inclined to forgive T&L's one massive flaw,…
Film #18 of Project 90
”In the future, when a woman is crying like that, she isn’t having any fun!”
Two women. One car. An endless road. Ridley Scott takes those simple elements and tries to make a convincing film about two women who are seemingly tired of their lives which is dictated by the evil men. From a sociological point of view Thelma & Louise is an important movie, a rather radical feminist movie with female heroes and some very strong messages about the way a masculine society sees women as sexual objects, treats them violently and ignores their talents and their freedom. That will obviously fascinate those who are watching movies for their “important and life changing messages”. I’m…
Thelma & Louise tells a simple story about a waitress and her girlfriend who go on a trip to free themselves from their boyfriends but everything goes wrong when one of them shoots a rapist. As I said, the story may be simple, but the script itself is great because, as the film rolls, we start caring about the characters and about the world around them. Initially, the film presents itself as a crime comedy where the slick entertaining dialogues are evident, but, later, it becomes a more complex (and maybe less amusing) flick about a race against destiny to the border of Mexico, a film about trust and about friendship, always accompanied by a stylized atmosphere embedded by the acclaimed…
With my entire movie collection stuck inside dozens of boxes for the next 10-14 days, I was left to channel surf last night. Luckily I found Thelma & Louise on Sundance, which I hadn't seen in well over a decade. The rewatch was refreshing on several levels, and seeing it with a different eye this time around made me appreciate some of its unique qualities a bit more.
At the time of this film's release, Ridley Scott really didn't have much humor to speak of in his filmography. Now I'm not saying that Thelma & Louise is an all-out comedy, but it definitely has a lot of elements that make you frequently smile and giggle, and it features characters that are equally…
Feminist road-movie, man-hating escapism? Yes and no; although Thelma and Louise has many male characters that are deplorable; it's not exactly dishonest, and even then, some of the characters; like Brad Pitt's are surprisingly humane and sympathetic.
I've never really thought that a lot of men are for lack of better word, attractive. Sure, conventionally attractive men exist and I can admit when a man is well made; but I've always had a sort of soft spot for Brad Pitt; not in the flaccid dick kind of way either. He's just one of those guys men (like me) half-wish to be and the sort of guy most men want to look like.
Saying that, I'm okay looking the way I…

I think we need more movies about how men (with the lone exception of Harvey Keitel) are total pieces of shit. It's pretty sad that in the 20+ years since this movie came out, there's still barely anything comparable.
Not nearly as good as I was hoping. </3
"Please! I have a wife and kids."
"Oh, really? Well, you're lucky. You be sweet to them, especially your wife. My husband wasn't sweet to me. Look how I turned out."
A different kind of road movie, Thelma & Louise starts out with what should just be a fun weekend for the girls that turns ugly very quickly in the parking lot of a truck stop bar (The existence of which seems like a very bad idea to begin with.). Thelma, not saddled with her jackass of a husband for the first time in far too long, gets a bit too friendly with the wrong guy who then tries to rape her in the parking lot. Fortunately for her, and really,…
Oh I suppose that should just about do it for plot synopsis. My wife had actually seen "Thelma & Louise" multiple times prior to last night's viewing and only wanted to watch it because she liked it so much. After her latest showing last night, she's actually lowered her opinion of the movie, citing it as "too long" and a "bit too boring". I can't say I disagree with her, as T&L could've benefited greatly had they somehow been able to shave off about thirty minutes or else beefed up the plot a little bit, to justify a running time of over two hours. At times, I got the feeling that we were just killing time until we got to the…
Ξεκινησε παρα πολυ καλα η ταινια, προχωρησε παρα πολυ καλα η ιστορια και το τελος........ Ηταν το πιο ηλιθιο τελος που εχω δει ποτε μου και μου χαλασε ολοκληρη την ταινια.

Girls and crime. So this is about two women (Susan Sarandon, Geena Davis) who decide to just run off for a weekend and have some bonding time over some fishing in the wilderness. When they take an impromptu stop at a country night club on the way, a situation with a handsy gentleman escalates quickly, and it results in them becoming fugitives as they attempt to outrun the law throughout the Southwestern United States on route to Mexico. Now I was not actually trying to get in touch with my inner woman here; this movie is on the 1,001 Movies You Must See Before…
Some incredible directing and imagery. The soundtrack might be a little dated but I also think it gives the film an interesting feel.
One of Scott's finest films.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
