Take 5: Feisty Females
Who can resist a feisty female? Not me. Amongst my acquaintance it’s rumoured I may well be one. I don’t have the killer skills of the women in these fine films so have no idea why this rumour surfaced. But I can promise that you’ll find your very own favourite in this little lot.
Kill Bill 1 – A classic come back film featuring a bucket load of grit, fortitude & great martial arts action scenes.
Kill Bill 2 – you just know you’re onto a good thing when there’s a tribute to Bruce Lee in the action sequence
Working Girl – Melanie Griffiths vacuuming in her underwear. Do I really need to say much more than that?
Million Dollar Baby – Heart-breaking & fabulous
Thelma and Louise – The film that defines the letters BFF
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – a pint sized heroine, brilliant investigative journalism & beautiful Swedish scenery. Please take my advice and watch the original Swedish version.
The Girl who Played with Fire - sequel to the above. Original Swedish version. No substitutes accepted.
The Girl who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest - Final film in the trilogy. Wonderful story telling. Made me want to read the books. May still do when I get a moment, in between blog posts and my own writing.
