Here’s another installment in my ongoing project to collect and categorize kick-ass women movies and shows. This is a list of such movies that I haven’t seen yet, but hope to (or should) see someday soon. (This is my fifth list in the series. The first four lists are of movies I’ve seen and loved, or at least enjoyed.)
9 kick-ass women movies I need to see
- Coffy (1973)
- Foxy Brown (1974)
Two 70’s classics starring Pam Grier. I’m curious, but wary. Wary of the 70’s mostly, I guess.
- Aliens (1986)
- Alien 3 (1992)
- Alien Resurrection (1997)
It’s pretty shocking that I’ve never seen any of the movies in the Alien franchise. Especially considering that Sigourney Weaver’s role of Ellen Ripley is legendary in the kick-ass woman genre. These are at the top of my to-see list. (I need to see the first one, too, but I understand that Ripley is not yet too kick-ass yet in that one.)
- GI Jane (1997)
More military than most of the kick-ass women movies I watch. Demi Moore stars in this one as woman in a Navy Seals training.
- Die Another Day (2002)
Halle Berry is supposed pretty good in this, though I’ve heard it’s not a great Bond movie overall.
- House of Flying Daggers/Shi mian mai fu (2004)
I believe this one is supposed to be pretty good. It’s got Zhang Ziyi. I have high hopes.
- Elektra (2005)
This should have been great. I heard it wasn’t. I’d sill like to check it out. Jennifer Garner reprises (somewhat) her role from Daredevil.
