Without reading the article, if it doesn't mention Parker Posey it can suck my wang.

Sigourney Weaver is #1? I approve.

Well, they got one right.

Note to writer: in Kill Bill, the gang of 88 didn't have 88 members.

clicked the link for Pam Grier. A little disappointed that she was only #9, but we get it, she's black.

Samantha Caine in The Long Kiss Goodnight. Chefs do that.

Linda Hamilton would have been the only other acceptable #1.

No Aeryn Sun. Bah.

Glad to see Milla Jovovich made it twice.

Rhona Mitra? I prefer her to Kate although I think they look quite similar.

Glad to see Starbuck getting some love. I will whine to the end of my days about how they messed up her character over the last two seasons.

I appreciate the nod to Firefly, but not River Tam?

Also, Mona Demarkov laughs at your list.

So, what would you call a 21-some? Helluva way to go, but it'd be fun.
 
2012-09-28 09:46:52 AM
Ok, so it's the top 20 list of female badasses in American films. The various Asian cinema scenes have had female badass heroes for decades.

At the very least, Michelle Yeoh needs to be on this list.
 
2012-09-28 09:47:26 AM
16) Liv Tyler - Arwen Evenstar Undomiel - Lord of the Rings
This farking elf takes on 9 black riders all at once.

If by 'taking on' you mean running form and making a couple threatening poses at, I guess. Otherwise, we never saw her fight. So no.

4) Carrie Fisher - Princess Leia Organa - Star Wars
Other than during the breakout from the detention center in the Death Star, she didn't do any real fighting. Hard to say if she was good or lucky. Don't agree here either.

The rest of the list I have no complaints about.

Then why did they call themselves The Crazy Eighty Eights?

No Salt?

Ok, I can live with that...

But yeah, it's missing Cynthia Rockwell...I loved her movies, real kicky, she was.
And yes, love the Mona reference...she definitely needs on the list! "With or without?"...if you've seen the movie, you know what that means. Very cool.

It's also missing Valeria from Conan...Sandahl Bergman was badass!

And, it's missing Bridgitte Nielsen...Beverly Hills Cop 2 and Red Sonja...
Hell, just cuz she was gorgeous back in the day!

You can do the same for Sheena...Tanya Roberts...

As well as all the Charlie's Angels, past and present.

Could go on forever...Wonder Woman anyone?

FTFY
I had a huge crush on her in the early 90s when many of her movies were featured on USA networks "Up All Night" on the weekends.

Kangaroo_Ralph: I appreciate the nod to Firefly, but not River Tam?


River Tam would beat you until you don't move but she wouldn't know why she did so.

Badass is a choice, not the result of reactive programming.

Deadliest and most perfect being. Multipass.

/inclusion of Zoe Bell is pretty cool, because she kinda made that movie, at least from the non-badguy perspective(other than Rosario Dawson being ridiculously hot)

8) Rose McGowan - Cherry Darling - Planet Tower

I've never seen Planet Tower.

Definitely top 5. Took no shiat from nobody.

I want you to take the time to learn the Babylon 5 mantra. Ivanova is always right. I will listen to Ivanova. I will not ignore Ivanova's recommendations. Ivanova is God. And if this ever happens again, Ivanova will personally rip your lungs out! Babylon control out.

rickycal78: The list also had way too much waif-fu for a real list of female badasses.


The characters are bad ass but only one woman on there is a real bad ass. But the article is clear, they are talking about the characters.

And what the hell is wrong with the editor. If you look at the picture that is at the top of the article the very first lady pictured didn't even make the list?! 4 out of the 9 didnt!

That's were you find Ms. Rothrock
 
2012-09-28 10:12:55 AM
What the hell was Angelina Jolie's name in Tomb Raider?
That character too...

And YES, Red Sonja...it's an excuse to put 80's Bridgitte Nielsen in!

Oh, and Gogo! You can't forget Gogo...
She almost killed Beatrix Kiddo with that spikey ball/chain thing..
And she stabbed the crap outta that guy's nuts in Battle Royale!
OUCH!!

Hhhmmm...

Anne Parillaud was pretty badass in Le Femme Nikita.

List really does fail without Michelle Yeoh. I guess the author just assumes that Americans don't know about any actresses from the rest of the planet.

Not #1, but I would have squeezed her in there somewhere.
