Movies tend to really suck at depicting women. They suck so bad that pretty much every movie you can currently go see in the theater is fantasy/escapism — not because they're about futuristic post apocalyptic hellscapes or Men of Steel, but because they all exist in worlds where women don't seem to exist. Wives exist. Girlfriends exist, but women with well rounded lives who serve purposes beyond propping up male protagonists have all but disappeared.
This is obviously a major problem, but more problematic still is that it's starting to seem like nothing can be done about it.
