  1. My own personal crushing moment this year in terms of pop culture, would be watching La La-Land and realizing it’s crap.

    Or watching Wonder Woman, and realizing that it had the same old Female tropes that most others have. Focus on her pretty looks? Check. Couldn’t get strong without emotions over losing a male love interest? Check.

  2. Wonder Fake shouldn’t be on this list, it is the worst film of all and is blatantly sexist against women. All the film defines is the worst of humanity of how men treat women.
