Here is a long, multi-thread discussion on f_fa about Jupiter Ascending. This was probably my favorite comment of the bunch:
I was explaining to someone elsewhere about how it's a particular kind of female power fantasy. You get to have all the cool sparkly space princess dresses, but be actually in charge, not just an appendage to your space boyfriend.

And you notice how once she got off Earth, there didn't seem to be any sexism? People were manipulative or abusive or murderous or helpful in all sorts of ways, but it didn't seem gendered in the slightest.


Reasons to Love Agent Carter by Tansy Rayner Roberts expresses perfectly all the things I am loving about that show (although I'm an ep behind - I have ambitions of catching up today).

I loved Captain Singh so much. She was so utterly in charge.

And her first officer (or whatever) was also female. Win!
