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? 😉
Queen Gorgo – 300
Arwen – Lord of the Rings
If you want him – come and claim him!
Red Sonja – Red Sonja
Princess Leia – Star Wars
Lara Croft – Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life
I’m not leaving you because I couldn’t kill you. I’m leaving you because I could.
Selene – Underworld
I am a Death Dealer, sworn to destroy those known as the Lycans. Our war has waged for centuries, unseen by human eyes. But all that is about to change.
Marian – Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
Men speak conveniently of love when it serves their purpose
Am I missing anyone??
