23 – What Women Want – with Just Jen

Summary

This episode is about a common misconception in cinema, that men and women want different things. Studios are still dividing movies this way, an outdated practice.

We speak to Just Jen, a film writer who works in TV production about what makes a great movie. Jen doesn’t believe in gender division, she chooses what to watch much like you do.

We discuss how filmmakers entice viewers, the role of stereotyping, whether race is a factor and what exactly it is about Tom Cruise movies that rev Jen’s motor.

A quick warning: the sound isn’t perfect, thanks for bearing with us.
