The Bechdel Test

The Bechdel Test is simple. It contains 3 simple rules for a movie to pass;
1. It has to have at least two [named] women in it.
2. Who talk to each other.
3. About something besides a man.

Simple enough. So anything less than a perfect score is a fail. I'm going to, for a year (starting 5th August 2012), record every film (classic and contemporary) that I watch on here. The fails will go on the list, the passes with an honorary mention here in the description.

Fails: 14/15

Passes: The Five-Year Engagement.

Note: If you disagree with my scoring of a film, please contest it and it'll be reviewed.
Note 2: A fail doesn't mean it's a bad film, it's just kind of sexist.
