The Mako Mori Test: 'Pacific Rim' inspires a Bechdel Test alternative
"The Mako Mori test is passed if the movie has: a) at least one female character; b) who gets her own narrative arc; c) that is not about supporting a man’s story. I think this is about as indicative of “feminism” (that is, minimally indicative, a pretty low bar) as the Bechdel test. It is a pretty basic test for the representation of women, as is the Bechdel test. It does not make a movie automatically feminist."
This is relevant to a discussion i’ve been having elsewhere with thecoppercow
The Mako Mori test was designed tumblr user chaila. It is meant to “live alongside - not supplant - the Bechedel test”.
