Inspired by a post of lauredhel’s asking for recent movies that pass the Bechdel test, I wondered if anyone has some recommendations for good recent geeky entertainment that also passes, ideally comprehensively rather than barely. Share your recommendations in comments. Fanfic and vids and similar welcome!
Quick refresher: passing the Bechdel test requires that:
- the movie [media/story/game/narrative…] has at least two women characters;
- who talk to each other;
- about something other than a man.
If you’d like to recommend something not-women-hostile that passes a variant instead (two people of colour who talk about something other than a white person, for example) go ahead.
