Last month, I took part in the Ten Most Iconic Movie Characters blogathon. Now a new spin-off of this relay race is making its way through the blogosphere, this time focusing on female movie characters only. Here are the details:
A list of 10 iconic female movie characters has been made. That list will be assigned to another blogger who can then change it by removing one character (describing why they think she should not be on the list) and replacing it with another one (also with motivation) and hand over the baton to another blogger. Once assigned, that blogger will have to put his/her post up within a week. If this is not the case the blogger who assigned it has to reassign it to another blogger. After you have posted your update leave the link in the comments below and I will make sure it gets added to the overview post.
I was given the baton by Ruth from FlixChatter. Here’s the list of those who have participated so far:
And here’s the current list of characters:
Who I’m removing:
I really hate to remove Foxy because I love both the character and the film in which she stars, but I’m not sure she is even Pam Grier’s most iconic character (Coffy gets the nod in my book). This is a tough one, but the rules call for a change to be made.
Who I’m adding:
All it takes is one look at The Bride’s picture to recognize who she is. With Kill Bill 1 & 2, Uma Thurman portrayed one of the most badass characters in modern cinema, playing an assassin who refuses to be stopped on her quest for revenge. Need further proof? Watch this clip. THIS is how you make an entrance:
Now I am passing the baton to Dan from Public Transportation Snob.
