I have been interested in this film for a while but some anon here alluded to it painting men as rapey.
I am pretty anti feminism and feel that actual rape is pretty rare.
Will this film make me angry?
I am sensing that you actually grew up middle class and fear poor people and think they are morally inferior to yourself.
This "one in five women have been raped" meme is a pure feminist fabrication.
Most people are not criminals and there are not enough criminals to do that much raping.
>scary situations happen all the time
This is what feminists really mean when they cry rape.
Women have a heightened sense of fear and want it to be validated.
"oh my god that guy is creepy looking and looked at my boobs...raaaaaaaaaaape!!1!!!!!"
Oh sorry, you are correct, I meant to type "ATTEMPTED RAAAAAAAPE!!1!!!!!!!!!!"
i liked the movie, especially how it portrays the thought process and awareness while being alone for several days hiking through nature. Watch it again and pay attention to the sound, it's great, the breathing, the clinging of stuff in the backpack, how loud the sound is from an object that falls when you are in an exhausted trance like state hiking up a mountain, the exhaustment that numbs all other sounds, the repeating thoughts and the only three words of a song stuck in your head that play over and over and over, the excitement of mundane stuff, the frustration when stuff goes wrong, and how you shout it out cause you can and you're alone...
I see the bait is very fresh on /out/ today.
>I am pretty anti feminism and feel that actual rape is pretty rare.
If you're retarded and reactionary enough to actually say something that stupid then yes, it probably will make you angry, because the modern world probably makes you angry.
It's not really a middle class thing, it's more of a Western belief because our Western culture absolutely condemns raping so it doesn't happen here as much. Eastern cultures like that of South Asia or the Middle East don't mind to much about rape therefore its much much much more prevalent there.
There's one scene in particular that looks exactly like something that some dumb middle-class city bitch would write if she was fabricating a story involving "duh ebil hunters".
The rest of it was pretty mediocre overall but had some nice scenery.
There are feminists who insist that all heterosexual sex is rape.
If you're anti feminist watch it for sure. My gf was having feminist tones with me when we started this movie. She changed her tone real quick when she saw Reese witherspoon getting plowed in a back alley by two Chads while Simon and Garfunkel plays melodiously in the background.
10/10 would watch again the whole move is a giant laff at city whores.
What is it about being in the city that makes women such whore?
In the smaller towns they are pretty prudey
Well it started with Andrea Dworkin and her book "Intercourse" which I was made to read in college. That work is cited constantly in subsequent feminist papers. So if your interested , you can start there.
yeah and it's not even exaggerated for the film
Sounds like a rough course, what exactly were you studying?
I really wouldn't say something directly labeled as "radical" was anything other than a fringe element though, shit some casual searching has revealed that a majority like to either cherry pick quotes from her, haven't heard of her - Because she's batshit - or just plain don't like her.
I'm sorry that book upset you. But I feel provoking some kind of response to it may have been the point.
The picture was taken in Oregon, somewhere 2/3ds up the whole trail. After hiking and camping out on all sorts of terrain for roughly 1800 miles you are not inexperienced. I wonder what the deal was with the pack, any book readers can elaborate maybe? Or any 90's through hikers? Maybe having a pack like that was just a 90's meme or something, i don't know
That's a Gregory Evolution, it was a pretty common pack for the time that was a cheaper and heavier than an internal frame pack but was still functional. She also had a pretty heavy fill synthetic bag and those tend not to compress very well.
She didn't really have the latest, greatest, most expensive gear even for the 90s.
I also think it's sad and funny that /out/ shits all over this book/movie because it's someone going /out/, un-fucking her life and becoming a better person.
i'm the guy you replied to, i also posted >>654306 and i can relate on a certain level to the main character. I also don't get the hate for the movie. I am just curious about why she carries so much stuff. OK, the pack is large and heavy, but what is inside it? And what is strapped to the outside? From the picture i assume her sleeping bag is in the drybag strapped on the bottom of her pack, it looks big yeah but it's not even in the pack. I'm also a bit of a poorfag and use a heavy synthetic fill second hand army bag that is oversized for me and i'm 1.95m. When i go on a 5 day winter trek i carry WAY less stuff, and again, i'm 1.95m, i eat a lot...
I'm not bitching at her, i just wanna know what drives a person to carry so much shit for 2600 miles
>Her father was the grandson of a Russian Jew who fled Russia when he was 15 years old in order to escape military service and her mother was the child of Jewish emigrants from Hungary
>Though she described her Jewish household as being in many ways dominated by the memory of the Holocaust
Every fucking time.
Oh but the world does care, you see I am far from alone.
Men not marrying is becoming a huge problem.
Just a few percentage points and quality of life changes drastically for women.
Many are already complaining of the "man shortage".
Just wait ten years and see who is not being missed...
I know you're probably just shit posting, but I really pity guys who think this way.
They're so afraid of being hurt that that they choose to be miserable rather than taking a chance at happiness.
1. Gear in the 90s, especially cheaper gear, was a lot heavier and more bulky. Ultralight hadn't yet become a trend.
2. She made the classic rookie mistake of over-buying. She bought a fuck-huge pack and filled it with everything she thought she'd need.
3. She actually did drop a lot of gear weight along the trail, but she didn't replace her bigger items like the pack, bag and tent.
Just to people know the face beyond the paper.
See thats just the thing. Most men are less happy in a long term monogamous relationship.
This fact baffles women so much that they refuse to accept it.
Not sure why you want this thread to be about feminism so much. The movie is decent: washed up whore goes to find herself on PCT, becomes more experienced, imagines guys she meets are rapey at one point - or maybe they are not sure, and there's some good scenery.
Not the anon your post is directed at, but I feel the same way. If I take a woman out, have a good time and we end up having sex, then a week later she decides that because I haven't called her back, it must have been rape, I risk going to prison because she can't stand the thought of being rejected. Yes, I'd rather be single.
His name is Tiny Tim and he was an amazing singer songwriter and performer who played often on the late show with Johnny Carson.
He was loved by millions and was not one bit gay
I have seen just about every /out/ related movie ever made. I liked Wild. You should see it. If you seriously can't even watch a movie because it triggers you, then you probably need to reevaluate yourself because your thoughts and judgments are warped.
>Will this film make me angry?
It made me angry when she shit in the middle of the trail and did not bury her poop
It made me angry when she littered, twice
Fuck this movie and the book it came from
Here's the gist of this movie.
A hopeless, penniless, drugged out slut decides "Holy shit, I need to get my life out of the toilet!"
So she decides to hike the PCT, makes a bunch of rookie mistakes, a couple hunters make sleazy passes at her but every other guy she meets is pretty cool, she gets her shit together and moves on with her life.
If that triggers you, I guess you'd better just watch Master and Commander again.
It's not really unrealistic in its portrayal of the risk of rape. Not all males in the movie are rapists. Some are cool, some are shitty, and some are in between. Like in real life. Good movie.
No, it's not list on me. I know exactly what you're saying, you're saying that you've achieved nothing so you cling to the hope that something you had no control or choice over will eventually make you important.
It's easier than actually working hard to make something.
you know that movie is a rip off of a film based on a book telling a true story?
pic related, it's waay better
So a movie based on a book telling a true story is a rip off of a movie based on a book telling a true story?
Does that mean Robert Redford's "A Walk in the Woods" based on the book telling a true story is a rip off of a rip off of a movie based on a book telling a true story?
Movie was meh, I'm just not a fan of hiking/mountaineering/outdoors movies that aren't documentaries or the occasional docu-drama. I didn't feel immersed in the character and any hardship she may have felt on the trail just looked like superficial hollywood broadstroking.
The scenes to a good job (cinematically) of illustrating the female main character's thought process when around strange men, no matter how much of a crazy feminist she actually is, that's how she thought. It's fine.
>Rape hapens (sic) more often than you think it does.
Yeah, to men. The majority of rapes in the US occur in prisons, particularly between two or more AA men.
If I was a girl, I would absolutely not go anywhere on this planet without a firearm not even to the bathroom within my own house. As a man however, I walk through the ghetto at 2 a.m. and I dont even care.
Funnily enough I rented the movie yesterday - after I couldnt download it.
The movie is visually appealing in setting and with use of brief flashbacks.
I watched the DVD special features and Reese actually did the movie without makeup which is pretty cool.
I liked the movie and dont really know why some anons go on the defensive about Reese interacting with people who could be lower class uneducated hicks - they went hunting with bows and beer bringing no water and had no qualms over drinking essentially dirty water.
freedom is gone bitches bitch about everything you do or don't do.
i think the pros and cons are just about equal
so if a girl wants to stay with me i let her if she wants to go i let her.
no marriage no kids.
I am going to ignore your entry level /r9k/ tier b8 and just answer your question.
Yes the film will probably make you angry, but not for the reasons you mention. Half the movie chronicles here life before the hike, and she was kind of an awful person. Gets hooked on heroin and cheats on her husband a fuck ton, gets a pregnancy scare and has no clue who the dad is, etc. She is also an inexperienced hiker and does a lot of stupid shit in general while out on the trail.
As for painting guys as "rapey" there is literally one scene where she meets these two hunters, who come of as sketch as fuck. Later on one of them sneaks up on her while she's taking a break, and starts acting even creepier, and also hells her she has a nice ass (which makes he uncomfortable, given the fact that she is alone, and he is armed, rendering her completely helpless should he try to do anything). His buddy calls him back over, and she promptly nopes the fuck out of there once he's gone. That's basically it.
Now, apart from all the stuff about her, the movie is actually really nice. There's a really good general aesthetic, and lots of great scenes. Basically, you'll hate the main character, but love the movie. Kind of like into the wild.
>grew out of getting triggered by any left leaning media
And in doing so you sacrificed your manhood
The truly weird thing was all the near-rapes and spooky sexual situations where they kept throwing her into scenarios where she could be gang raped, especially with the 3 guys in the tents. No scene with her and other males felt normal.
It added some drama yes, but it made it seem like as a woman, you literally can't go anywhere alone.
When she went with that Park Ranger, and he subtley flirted with her and then threatened her, but she got last second saved, then she meets these male campers and they kinda eyeball her down though in the end they are sweet and helpful and then the 3 college guys and of course 2 rednecks who were close to raping her.
When she meets a cute guy she is very open to his sexual advances and doesn't consider it rape.
It felt like the movie was saying that the entire planet wants to have sex with you but try to be strong and wait for a guy you like and you'll be okay in the end or something. You gotta fuck. Fuck the right people, keep that pussy filled with good penises. lol
I can tell when people can't b empathetic. You need to think about what it would literally be like being 5'3" and have lower muscles than any guy. If you were alone you would just have your wits and maybe a weapon to keep you safe. If a guy jumped on you with heavy pack you'd be screwed, if he can disarm you, its rapetown USA. Sure you never have felt that weird rape feel but it does happen, the feeling happens monthly as a woman, rapes maybe never but you always have to be safe.
I think the movie was saying she was a total nymphomaniac who used the outdoors to cleanse her evil ways through suffering and solitude and that her choosing a good man to have sex with was HER choice finally made of volition and not because of wanting to cover up pain or please a man.
If I took a trip like this I would hope to finally break free of my parents weird bohemian programming and try to become a man so I can relate to her struggle on a primal level.
I don't think it bothers me that he makes a bunch of stupid mistakes and gets himself killed, what bothers me to know end is is fucking self righteous attitude about it all. There is nothing wrong with wanting to step back from society and live innawoods. If you can pull it off, go for it. But the fact that he would go on these fucking tangents about how fucked society was just made him a pretentious little prick.
So many cool things in life are ruined by edgy teens who try to make everything a huge "statement".
>especially with the 3 guys in the tents.
The three buddies she hung out with, with no problems, or even a hint of a problem?
Did we watch the same fucking movie?
If anything, they're purposefully there to quell little whiners like OP, after the scene with the creepy guys. (Who aren't even shown to be hikers, or anything but retards.)
>When she meets a cute guy she is very open to his sexual advances and doesn't consider it rape
You don't see a difference between repeated unwanted sexual advances in a place where a woman is pretty much at your mercy, and reciprocated advances in a public setting with witnesses and help around?
One feels safe and unwanted. One feels safe and wanted.
>It felt like the movie was saying that the entire planet wants to have sex with you but try to be strong and wait for a guy you like and you'll be okay in the end or something.
Here I am thinking this movie was saying 'not all men' by showing three pretty distinct and different kind of dudes (Lumping the 3 hikers together).
It's pretty fucking balanced.
The rest of your post is solid, though.
