^I've met some conservatives who think its retarded. And I also think its retarded.

The whole point of the first part of the book is Piggy wants to talk about his feelings and they kill him because they don't want to hear about his feelings. In reality, girls would JUST talk about their feelings.

Psychological studies show Men feel psychological security when they form into larger and thus more violent groups. Women feel psychological security when they are with a few close friends that they can share their secrets and/or innermost feelings with.

Female Lord of the Flies just doesn't work from the everyday interactions we see between men and women.

They don't actively kill him because they don't want to hear his feelings. It's been a while since I've read the book, but I do believe Piggy, his glasses, and the conch represent order, reason and logic. If one reads Lord of the Flies in a literal sense, one would have a terrible read.
In reality, girls would JUST talk about their feelings.
In reality, a group of 6-12 year old kids would not kill each other, or even survive for so long in a foreign climate.

Half the criticism of these girl remakes is coming from people who don't even care about gender/sex but see these films as a disgrace to the source material because of overall poor quality. Looking past the female cast of Ghostbusters, that movie was apparently full of cringey unfunny dialogue and shitty CGI and absolutely failed to hold a candle to the original movies.

Another criticism, and this plays into the broader criticism that Hollywood is just plain out of ideas, is that remaking movies to have a non-white/female instead of white/male casts is a cheap jab at identity politics to make a quick buck without contributing anything of substance to the art of film.

There are plenty of female-based and non-white based stories to make movies out of. Make a movie that stars all black people about some African legend. Make a movie based on a book with primarily female characters (there are many such movies). Make something original ffs.

What? A female remake of Lord of the Flies? No, come on. We don't need that.

LOTF is a very dark story and a female version of it is just unreal.

Some stories can have the genders of some characters changed but just not this one.

If all these white male classic movies have to be remade with non-white females, aren't you sort of admitting that white males have superior media? Like I said there are billions of stories that don't involve white men.

lord of the flies has been made into movie like a dozen times or so. some all-female remake isn't gonna take away the book many enjoy or any previous movies.

In the same way making an overall terrible movie doesn't necessarily subtract from filmography, it can still be a bad, uninspired movie. This one's uninspired because it's an identitarian remake.

"What does this film do to undermine the art of film?" is the wrong question. The most important analysis of a piece of media examines that media independent of its impact on society. The media matters, the people and the institutions don't. Basically, is it a good or a bad movie? Is it a creative or derivative movie? The latter question is my chief concern. These movies won't cause the "moral fabric of society" to come caving in. Though, media will always be a product of the spirit of the age. Ghostbusters and Lord of the Flies are inevitably postmodern Hollywood films. Postmodernism is a celebration of decadence and materialism. My greatest criticism of such films is the disgusting spirit in which they were made, not the simple choice to include women. These are deliberately provocative and political films.

Yeah, we didn't need the original Lord of the Flies either, but we got it. What type of argument is "we don't need that", lol? That's the worst argument ever when it comes to media and entertainment. Clearly you don't consume too much of it, Tabby.

If I recall, the reason why there were no girls on the island was that the author was unsure of how to write in the mind of a little girl. Make of it what you will, but as long as the message stays the same as the book, I don't care.

Pretty much spot on. Also, society in the 50s was more male dominated, so the book was more applicable to be society, in microcosm. Now that we pretty much have it equal, so long as the core message gets carried I don't see too much of a problem with this, frankly.
