Top 5 Tuesdays (T5T) Salutes Badass Babes


I've been a member of The Large Association Of Movie Blogs for a couple of months now and let me say that membership has its privileges. Just the other day my Jeep broke down on the side of the road somewhere just outside Darfur and well, I made a quick phone call, spoke with a woman named Judy and before I knew it there was a chopper hauling me to the nearest Hotel/Spa where I got a free night's stay and a nice warm meal. Okay, okay that's bullshit. It wasn't a Jeep, it was an 85 Escort and it was just outside Oklahoma City and the hotel was more like a motel and the spa was a functioning bathtub, but still.

Actually, being a member of L.A.M.B. means I get to participate in kick ass bloggy type thingys like Sirens Of The Lambs. It's a one on one fight between various movie femme fatales that have been pre-selected and then randomly drawn to duke it out. So anyway, if this sounds like something for you or if you're looking for a little extra traffic to come your way, you should become a L.A.M.B. Don't delay, become a L.A.M.B. today!

Okay, I'm derailing here because this is Tuesday and Tuesdays are all about lists. And this list is going to be about Kick-Ass Females in movies. Ladies who you would not want to meet in a dark alley. This lady might be all hot and you may want to entertain a little sack time with her, but do it with one eye open and one hand under the pillow with a dagger under there, because these women are bad. Bad all the way down to their beautiful bone structures.

So this Tuesday, give me your Top 5 Badass Females. Here are mine.

1. O-ren Ishii from Kill Bill Volume 1 That sweetness. Those freckles. The way she can lop off a head like it wasn't even there.

2. Nikita from
La Femme Nikita Don't let the doe-eyes fool you, this woman is cold blooded and aces with a rifle.

3. Geum-ja Lee from
Sympathy For Lady Vengeance This woman is an absolute angel... of death.

4. Molotov Cocktease from
Venture Bros If this woman doesn't kill you in ways no one could have ever imagined, she'll leave you cold in bed.

5. Ellen Berent Harland from
Leave Her To Heaven Ellen is picture perfect wife, but if she asks you to go swimming, you need to run away.

Stay tuned for my Sirens Of The Lamb entry where O-Ren Ishii takes on Hayley Stark from Hard Candy.

Hmm, don't know if I can come up with a good 5, but I must say that Elle Driver of Kill Bill would definitely be up there, if not at the top.

Um, you forgot some important ones:

- Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) from ALIENS

- Cable (Adrienne Barbeau) from SWAMP THING

- Joan Crawford (Faye Dunaway) from MOMMIE DEAREST

- Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh) or Jen (Ziyi Zhang) from CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON

- Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) from TERMINATOR 2

I'd have to say those three hotties from Death Proof..they kicked some ass at the end.

pacheco,

The Bride is great, but I defer to O-Ren who I think despite losing to The Bride is the bigger baddass.

Ray,

These are all good. Cable is one I hadn't thought about. You gotta see Sealab 2021 where the captain talks about wanting to be an Adrienne Barbeaubot. And Ziyi Zhang is one that I forgot about completely.

sir jorge,

You're right. They all kind of bug me though because of QTs dialogue. Zoe Bell is probably literally the baddest ass because she is a real life stunt woman.

Easy, Desiree (Claudia Jennings) from Gator Bait

I love Sealab, and saw that episode.
