Kick ass chicks - Part II

Sometime ago, I compiled a list of ladies who are more than capable of whupping my butt. As time goes by, new heroines arise and unfortunately, classic broads like Lt. Ellen Ripley are put to pasture. So, without further ado, here's my new list...  

1) At the top is Eliza Dushku as Echo in Dollhouse. For those who are not familiar with the storyline, 'dolls' have their memory wiped and reprogrammed for each assignment.

2) Who can go past Lena Headey as Sarah Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She's English and carries a big gun. 




3) One of my favourites, Natalie Portman at her butt-kicking best as Mathilda in Leon: The Professional. As Padmé in Star Wars and Evey in V for Vendetta, these were secondary, love-struck roles (IMHO)


4) Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium Trilogy, abused but still manages to tattoo a rapist in the nether regions and hacks into an account, running off with a billion SEK.




5) Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, witch extraordinaire! 



6) Something about Japanese girls in school uniform wielding samurai swords... Gianna Jun as Saya in Blood: The Last Vampire.




  7) If Johnny Depp can get the ladies drooling, Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Swann gets me hot under the collar.






8) Can't go past a flaming red head, Famke Janssen as Phoenix in the X-Men. 





  9) One has to include Miranda Otto as Eowyn, the strong silent type in Lord of the Rings. Ringwraith: No man can kill me. Die now. Eowyn: I am no man. 





10) Dilemma, do I include someone tried and trusted or a total new comer. Went for the latter and introducing Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games. Keep an eye out for her... could be another Lara Croft

Kick ass chicks

Consolidated from some old forgotten blog.

 My top 10 kick ass fantasy femmes. Who's yours? 1) Selene, kick ass vampire warrior played by Kate Beckinsale (in Underworld and Underworld: Evolution)


2) Zhang Ziyi who plays Moon (Hero), Jen (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Mei (House of Flying Daggers)


3) River Tam (in Serenity and Fire Fly) played by Summer Glau. The perfect assassin conditioned by the Alliance.


4) Buffy (Buffy the Vampire Killer) played by Sarah Michelle Gellar. what more need be said...


5) Ziva David played by Cote de Pablo. The Mossad liaison officer in NCIS.


6) Trinity in The Matrix series played by Carrie-Anne Moss. A computer programmer and a hacker who has escaped from the Matrix.


7) Lara Croft played by Angelina Jolie, the seeker of truth, daughter of Lord Henshingly Croft, English.


8) The Bride in Kill Bill, waking up after a long coma and hell bent on revenge. Played by Uma Thurman.


9) Alice played by Milla Jovovich, wakes up with amnesia, takes on the Hive in Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Resident Evil: Extinction.


10. The Mama of them all Lt. Ellen Ripley played by Sigourney Weaver in Alien, Aliens, Aliens 3 and Alien: Resurrection. If anyone can kick some big scary butt, Ripley's the one to do it.
