I've just watched The Great Escape, a film I'd never seen in full before.

In fact I've seen a few films in the last week. Started the week with 1917, then yesterday watched Darkest Hour (which I didn't think was great), followed by Dunkirk (a natural follow-up to Darkest Hour), and then earlier today I watched Finding Dory, but I didn't like that as much as Finding Nemo.

Little Women. I heard that lots of men boycotted this film because it's about women. But it's an utterly warm and rich film that's become the best film I've seen this year.

If you did, you heard wrong. Men boycotted Little Women because it lacks shooting, blowing up and jokes. Men and women simply don't like the same kinds of entertainment.

After a bit of reflection, I decided boycotting is the wrong word. Not going to see something is not a boycott. It's just not going to see it. So men didn't boycott the film. They just did something else with their time.

I went to see Little Women, thoroughly enjoyed it. Also enjoyed stuff like Hobbes & Shaw and Terminator: dark fate. There's a time for being uplifted and a time for shooting and blowing stuff up!

Shooting and blowing stuff up is uplifting!

But the point I was really making was that using words like "boycott" is not only wrong in the general sense that you went to see Little Women and therefore "men" didn't boycott it, but there is a wide choice of entertainment options in 21st century Britain of which going to see Little Women is only one. A man can not go to see it without boycotting it.

If the point being made was that more women went to see it than men, then:

(a) so what and

(b) why were women "boycotting" more man-orientated films that they could have been seeing at the same time.

What is the agenda here?

The word boycott was used by one of the people who was refusing to see it, I remember seeing it, although that was towards the end of last year. People can of course pick and choose what they want to see, but it's a fact that at least one person had used the word boycott in their reasoning.

Personally, I thought "Little Women" was very enjoyable.
But, as in everything, each to their own

Well, now I understand where the word came from in the context, though I think extrapolation from "at least one person" to "men" is a little unfair. So far today "at least two male BFers" have volunteered the information that they went to see it and enjoyed it, but I would similarly think it a stretch to say "male BFers overwhelmingly endorsed Little Women".

Social media bubble. Things flare up, people get outraged and then it's forgotten as the next thing flares up.
