Joss Whedon Boycotts Small Independent Film – Attacks Sleepwalk With Me

In yet another example of how small businesses and indie film making ingenuity are threatening the wellbeing and survival of corporate blockbuster fare, the film “Sleepwalk with Me” drew the ire of Avengers director Joss Whedon, who went online to plead with filmgoers to boycott the small film “opening August 24th in over eighty  theaters” in favor of big budget hollywood movies.

In the one minute video rant, Whedon – the creator of such shows as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Firefly –  asserts that the film  “being independent after all… could make fun of the pope. We don’t know. We just don’t know. We should just have a preemptive boycott of this movie that’s creeping up on my movie.”



Remember troops, the film to boycott is Sleepwalk With Me, by Mike Birbiglia opening August 24th.

    Well, it’s common kenolwdge that women can fight more efficiently in not-so-efficient clothing. It will always be irritating to me that women in video games, comic books, and everything else aimed at a male demographic, are portrayed as scantily-clad objects, but how can one really combat this without censoring? I’m not trying to be argumentative; I would just really like to know what others think.
