After watching the documentary Machete Maidens Unleashed and listening to Nerdpocolypse’s episode What Dreams are MAID of?!, I am left with some lingering thoughts about our fascination with bound women or MAIDens (metaphorically and literally).

The documentary, which is streaming on Netflix, profiled the series of exploitation films made during the 60s, 70s, and early 80s in the Philippines “where stunt men came cheap, plot was obsolete and the make-up guy was packin’ heat!” Legendary B movie producer Roger Corman produced countless films with images and plot elements that would end up on the cutting room floor today with the current ratings system where women were repeatedly raped, bound, caged, tortured, etc.

Review: Comic Book Men...boredom and a bit of misogyny.
I have been a long time fan of Kevin Smith, but his recent foray into TV has left me slightly unnerved. Comic Book Men on AMC is a six part reality series that features Kevin Smith’s New Jersey comic book store Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. The cast includes employees (Walt, Mike, Ming, & Bryan), fans, customers, and Smith, himself.
