Outdated and misleading test that was originally a joke which we shouldn't probably pay credence to --

I only saw a handful of the movies they mentioned, but for instance I find it hard to believe that Fast and Furious had strong female roles that paved new ground for women in Hollywood, also dubious of the Superman film. The Hangover passed but The Hobbit didn't? Etc.

Skeptical.
