Yeah the only two that come to mind are Elektra and Catwoman and both were poor.

This, I consider epic understatement, LOL. wink

Supergirl, Barb Wire...sadly, most female-driven superhero movies believe that T&A is the only thing an audience of horny teenagers wants to see.


Bad as Supergirl was, it didn't rely on Helen Slater fanservice nearly as much as Barb Wire did re P. Anderson Lee as was.

Always a good strategy. Never use your own money.

I think James Cameron would have something to say about that.


And George Lucas certainly would.

I loved Alien. Ripley seemed to be the genesis of the notion that women with brains could fight back and could actually be warriors. Wouldn't mind seeing a really good super heroine movie. I loved the TV Buffy series. Maybe movies will get it right someday.

My first time posting didn't "take". Weird. I'll try to set it down again...

For me a big part of the appeal is how Ripley was, in the best traditional sense, The Reluctant Hero(ine). So often it seems like the best person for a job is the one who wanted it the least, only to have it thrust upon them. From the events in the first movie that changed her life to the way it ended in the third, there was a poetic, almost pre-destined tragedy to her that approaches the Greek archetype.
