One of the reviews I read said, "Charlize Theron has her Oscar. Now she has her Catwoman." OUCH. I probably won't see it now. And we were thinking about going to see it, too.
But it does remind me of all those kick-ass Milla Jovovitch movies: Fifth Element (I kinda liked that one, actually... it's not great, but it's not extremely awful), The Messenger, and Resident Evil 1 and 2. I haven't seen The Messenger or either of the RE movies, but my DH saw part of RE 1 on TV and didn't change the channel, so it's probably somewhat OK. I just don't like zombies.
Underworld also has werewolves (tho they call them something else -- Licans, however that's spelled). I don't have a problem with vampires but I'm a little put off by werewolves sometimes. Not the ones in Underworld, obviously (I own it) but sometimes they can be too gruesome/ scary for me.
I love this thread
We were watching Independence Day (ID4) last night and I kept thinking, "where are all the warrior women?" It didn't help that my DH, who I did not tell about this thread, kept adding lines for Vivica Fox, trying to get her into the action (like saying, "I should have been Black Mambo,
") It's hard to explain, but it was so cute
He totally gets the whole warrior woman thing!
