Bartleby  (Ben Affleck)
The lesson must be taught. All are accountable... even God.

Serendipity  (Salma Hayek)
The whole book's gender-biased. A woman's responsible for original sin. A woman cuts Samson's coif of power. A woman asks for the head of John the Baptist. Read that book again sometime. Women are painted as bigger antagonists than the Egyptians and Romans combined.

Loki  (Matt Damon)
Mass genocide is the most exhausting activity one can engage in, next to soccer.
