The film is intense to watch but stick with it and you will be rewarded with some of the best visuals seen in a movie as well as some superb acting from Jennifer Connelly, Jared Leto and the incomparable Ellen Burstyn. Also consider: Half Nelson | Filth | Alpha Dog | Robot And Frank | Young Adult | Love | Jackie Brown | The Rules Of Attraction Shaolin Soccer may be the movie that proved director Stephen Chow was the master of fantasy and slapstick movie making but it's Kung Fu Hustle that's his masterpiece. The movie brilliantly blends cartoon-like violence with kung-fu, adds in some crazy special effects and a smattering of musical moments to create a goofy, great film. The Coen Brothers have made many a classic movie, but The Big Lebowski is their crowning achievement. The plot is based on a mistake: The Dude (Jeff Bridges) just so happens to have the same name as someone who owes money to the mob.

Written by McKenzie Gaudette Gender bias in the corporate music industry remains a prevalent issue affecting female artists and audiences alike through sexualized images, degrading lyricism, and stereotypical normative behaviors. Since rap and hip hop genres are predominately male oriented in terms of the ratio of male to female artists, it has been an uphill battle for women rappers and hip hop artists to make a name for themselves throughout the past few decades. Talented trailblazers like Lauryn Hill and Queen Latifah from the 90s have paved the way for recent breakthrough artists like Nicki Minaj, Kehlani, and Tink. However, a closer look demonstrates that the music industry is more interested in selling a women’s body for profit rather than advance her musical ability as a rap and hip hop artist. In order to understand why these women are now hypersexualized more than ever, it’s imperative to look at the political and economic underpinnings of the rap and hip hop genres.
