Weekend Poll

Nonsensical Weekend Poll

Since we have recently polled for our favorite badass men (in movies), for this week’s ponderings:

Which badass chick is your favorite?

The Return of the King, Eowyn – “I am no man.”

Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Sarah Connor –
(DOCTOR: You broke my arm!) “There’s 215 bones in the human body. That’s one.”

Kill Bill, Beatrix Kiddo aka The Bride – “This is what you get for fucking around with Yakuzas! Now go home to your mother!”

Star Wars, Princess Leia Organa – “Someone has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, fly boy.”

Sin City, Miho

Death Proof, the Girls (Zoe, Abby & Kim) –

Stuntman Mike: [screams from his car] I’m sorry!
Kim: What?
Stuntman Mike: I didn’t mean to, I was just… playing around!
Zoë: Oooh, he was playing around…
Abernathy: Asshole!

Night of the Living Dead (1990), Barbara – “Whatever I lost, I lost a long time ago and I do NOT plan on losing anything else.”

Resident Evil 3: Extinction, Alice – “You won’t have to wait that long, boys. Because I’m coming for you. And I’m gonna be bringing a few of my friends.”

Aliens, Ellen Ripley – “Get away from her, you bitch!”

Hackers, Kate Libby aka Acid Burn – “I hope you don’t screw like you type.”

Batman Returns, Selina Kyle aka Catwoman – “I don’t know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much yummier.”

The Matrix, Trinity – “Dodge this.”

The Long Kiss Goodnight, Samantha Caine/Charlie Baltimore – “Die screaming Mother F*cker!!!”

Serenity, River Tam – “Miranda…”

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Jadis the White Witch – “You know, Aslan, I’m a little disappointed in you. Did you honestly think by all this that you could save the human traitor? You are giving me your life and saving no one. So much for love. Tonight, the Deep Magic will be appeased, but tomorrow, we will take Narnia forever! In that knowledge, despair…and die!”

Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban, Hermione Granger – “You! You foul, loathsome, evil little cockroach!”

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Yu Shu Lien – “Without Green Destiny, you are nothing.”

    Eowyn – she annoyed me in The Dark Tower but became a total badass in ROTK.

    Ohhh we got four different opinions! Nice!

    It’s too hard to pick! Umm…umm… *bites nails* To keep it mixed up, I think I’m gonna take Ellen Ripley. Her transformer battle with the Alien Queen is freaking siiick.

    Although, Eowyn’s “I am no man!” slaying of the Witch King gives me the chills every time.

    Oooh, so many good choices: Ripley, Trinity, Sara Connor… all so good. You just can’t get more badass than River Tam. She is kick ass and completely crazy.

    Oooh, good poll! I think definitely the girls from Death Proof. It is my all time favourite movie – Zoe rocks! And then also…Alice (Mila) in Res Evil … and I love River Tam – I want to dance like she does.

    I’m voting for Lara Croft. No, she isn’t on the list, but she should be. 😛

    Yu Shu Lien, all the way.

    And Eowyn would come in second for me since she did improve so much from one movie to the next.

    Sarah Connor.

    Wow, it’s hard to choose from among them. Sorcha from Willow was also great. But of those you listed, I’d go with Ripley.
