Because of my "Changeling" review:
"I have never in my life read an article in a major newspaper where I was actually bothered enough to sit down and address it. I'm not even sure now exactly what is prompting my sending you this email other than to ask, are you a total misogynist or what?? I haven't seen 'Changeling,' nor do I intend to see it because I think it looks like yet another bad movie. But your review was so anti-women, I was totally blown away. Simply put, I did not expect your review to rampage against movies and/or film roles depicting women in empowering or otherwise feminist ways.
Besides the fact that your review barely addresses the movie, how can you objectively review a film where you so obviously hate the lead actress? ... How can you review a movie that stars a woman in a non-stereotypical manner when you so clearly hate even the idea of such a thing? You seem to malign Jolie's choice in roles, actually being so overly generalized to bitterly accuse her of picking roles where 'she beats men figuratively and literally.' So when a man fights a man that's just Movie Plot 101, but if a woman assume the role as the [expletive] kicker she's effectively accused of hating men? When you chose the words you used in your article, even without saying this outright, didn't you think this would be the underlying message your readers would pick up on? Strong woman = secret desire to dominate and kill all men. Absolutely ludicrous. And why does her character's choice to challenge the system in this movie even equate to her trying to beat up anyone, let alone men? So if Will Smith plays a role as a homeless black man who succeeds financially - according to your formulaic way of looking at things, it's really a story of the black man bringing down whitey? You may think this an odd comparison, but, thematically, isn't that what your saying? Sounds like you think a woman who fights the system is automatically fighting 'the Man.' Very misogynistic, and clearly a man threatened by women.
Here are some choice descriptions from your article discussing women and, in particular, Angelina Jolie and her (to use your choice words) 'world's greatest pair of lips': 'screeching,' 'female thorns in the force's side,' repeated images of women making men 'pay' for somehow wronging them, etc. My favorite, however, was your poo-pooing having to have seen a film that is 'shameless and insufferable' ... '[and] gives us a tale of feminine perseverance in an age of punishing masculine oppression.'
Get over yourself. Women don't hate men (although based on your review, the same may not hold true for you vis-a-vis your opinion of women). Stop being threatened by strong women. No one's going to hurt you, I swear. ... Even Angelina Jolie and her lips, which, as an aside, seem to be the only part of her you can stand. Ironic, huh? You love her lips, but watch out for what comes out of them! Likely just another attempt for her to beat up men. Puh-lease.
Very offended reader who doesn't understand why men are threatened by women, and/or how your editor allowed such an anti-woman article to go to press.
Thanks for your time."
