If you're not already fist pumping 24/7 about your lady parts (if you have lady part that is, honchos are also welcome), then by the wonderful medium of motion picture I hope to encourage you do so.
10. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World
You know when someone is so over done, over talked about, overrated? This is not the case with Ramona Flowers. Despite the fact that my generation of cool hip parents are more than likely to all name their spawn after this bundle of joy, I care not, for she is blessed with the best fictional name of all time. And she changes her hair for deeply rooted unexplainable reasons (LIKE ME. FYI, my favourite is green)
She doesn't let no man just have her, you must battle. And she's got wicked skills, and is just generally the best ever.
9. The Graduate
The ultimate fox. Yes, she is a little bitch *spoiler alert* but when you're that cool and charming does it matter? Also little fact, despite wor Dustin Hoffman was supposed to play a bairn seduced by a mature lady, she was only a few years older than him. OH YOU OLD DOG
8. An Education
A true story about a girl who must choose between her dreams of an Oxford education or whether to hang with a hip handsome older gent. I guarantee this will make you pat your crotch and say 'thank God I didn't grow a tadge in the womb'. Do we need a man, or An Eduction? HAWAY MAN THERE'S NO COMPETITION, GAN FOR THE GUY WHO TAKES YA TO PARIS (I'm obviously joking, I'm an academic snob)
7. Hard Candy
This young androgynous piece of Ellen Page is just such a powerful young character. She's intelligent, knows how to handle herself, and is capable of unspeakable things (ouch). Generally brilliant film full of twists, with the central theme of a rock solid kid with a quite a head on her shoulders.
The single cutest film known to man, with the single best hair cut ever for the single most iconic character ever know. Amelie is a lady who does things no woman would dare, and manages to be French all at the same time. Everyone loves a friendly nutter, and when they're this good at making a man meet them, there is little else you need.
5. Fifth Element
Lilu's character represents the greatest being in the world that returns to save the planet from an imminent death. The face this 'being' comes to Earth as a lady says a lot, right? She's also insanely smart and strong, and obviously beautiful. And she gets to chill with Bruce 'tank tops' Willis, which is always nice.
4. Planet Terror
3. True Romance
I find it DISGUSTING that this film received a mere 5.8 on IMBD. IT'S ABOUT A LADY, WHO IS THE ULTIMATE SEX BEING. It's absolutely flawless. The costumes (credited to no less than Paco Robane) are ever changing due to Barbarella's continuous struggle to keep her clothes on. If you haven't seen it, and want to feel like the ultimate sexual being, this is for you. There is just so much nude Jane Fonda, I'm going to put it on right now I'm that excited.
Absolutely lethal, independent, unbeatable. And, of course, a woman. She needs no more than to say she's one of the toughest characters ever, regardless of her gender.
