Quotes: Faux Action Girl
"Okay, this chick wants to be a knight at a time when women aren't allowed to be knights. Well, good for her going against the norm and wanting to be strong. The only problem is she isn't strong! And I don't mean physically, I mean in any sense... It's just her getting captured and yet still boasting about she's going to be 'the World's Greatest Knight.' Young lady, you definitely need a career change!"
The Nostalgia Critic on Kayley, Top 11 Dumbasses In Distress

"I will now be Sakura~ .... Sasuke! Sasuke! Sasuke! Save Sasuke, Naruto; while I sit here and cry, and not be useful in a real fight.

"We need to get out of here!" I yelled proactively as he carried me, proving I wasn't a whimpering damsel in distress.

"Dying Breed follows Nina, an Irish zoologist who's on the trail of a Tasmanian Tiger and her sister, who disappeared 8 years before in the very same territory; not before sending a paw print of the Tiger though. Her boyfriend, Leigh Whannell, has organized the trip for her and he remains the saving grace through the film being both rational and sympathetic. Dying Breed is yet another boring exploit of a film depicting a male, innocent and solemn, going out of his way to please a female, only to get ravaged, beaten, and shit on by the end of the credits; meanwhile - glorifying the female as the hero (rather, heroine)."
