Some of you have you may have read Natalie's post on Warner brothers deciding to no longer produce movies with female leads. It has inspired me to try create a top ten list of movies with female leads. I expect you all to help! Heres a few to get us going.
1. Monster - Charlize Theron
Yes chicks can be serial killers too.
2. The Aliens Movies - Sigourney Weaver
Women can save themselves and kill the big bad!
The first Alien movie was made in 1979 and was kinda groundbreaking. The writers had used unisex names for all the characters so casting could be completely flexible, but they never imagined a female in the lead role.
3. Boys Dont Cry - Hilary Swank
Girls can play boys.
4. Legally Blonde - Reese Witherspoon
Women can be funny and sincere in comedy without falling into stereotypes.
5. Silence of the Lambs - Jodie Foster
Women can be terrified and still get the job done. Jodie Foster plays a wonderfully complex character and I am reminded of the saying "Without fear there can be no courage."
6. Kill Bill - Uma Thurman
Love the scenes where she wakes up from her coma! Arsed are kicked and karma is dealt instantly. She should be every womans favourite action hero!
7. Million Dollar Baby - Hilary Swank
Once again showing us all how its done.
8. Amelie - Audrey Tautou
French and wonderfully whimsical.
9. Bridget Jones's Diary
I love honest characters.
