Thank goodness it’s Friday!!  It’s been a long week and after all of the brouhaha about Ms. USA being a geek (or rather not being one because she’s beautiful) I felt it rather appropriate to highlight some really kick ass women characters in my favorite sci-fi , fantasy, and action movies who just happened to be played by gorgeous women. And oh, just to show how geeky I am when it comes to movies, I just had to include some movie quotes too!
Can I have my geek cred now? 😉

I’m not leaving you because I couldn’t kill you. I’m leaving you because I could.
