When you look at the statistics of females and males in film, the numbers reveal a shocking disparity between genders. Here are some quick stats to get you up to snuff (if you aren't already)...

Only 30.8% of speaking roles are women.

26.2% of female actors get partially naked in films. 9.4% of men do.

Only 10.7% of the top 500 films feature a cast that has at least half female actors.

In action and spy movies, this trend is exacerbated, as women (or, shall I say woman, since there is often only one token female in these films) are often portrayed as hyper-sexualized damsels in distress.

Needless to say, this hasn't gone unnoticed. When one Tumblr user started musing about an inverse spy movie, the comedic activism pot was stirred, and everyone hopped in. Below is the hilarious and poignant result.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
