2019's "Charlie's Angels" bombed.
And a stereotype that men don't see movies with strong female leads is "born."
It's a thing, eh?
I was originally going to do a standard, "Having My Say" format... but it's been said by pretty much everyone else already: "Males will see a movie with a strong female lead IF the movie looks well made."
Which I agree with. I quite enjoy books, movies, and TV shows with strong female leads... provided the characters, plot, acting, visual style, etc are decently done.
So, instead of blah blah blah, I'm going to present you my Top Five Movies With Strong Female Lead Characters!
A strong female character who -- while having vulnerabilities faces up to the challenges in front of her, and deals with them, becoming even stronger in the process.
She kicks ass -- even while wearing a skirt and heels. Great look to the movie, interesting characters, and pretty accurate to the 1980's look and feel. Really just an enjoyable movie- and really shows that women CAN do action.
Absolutely one of my favorite movies with a strong female lead character- and it's based on a real life strong female leader. She was a serious bad ass. She juggled intrigue, wars, peace, religion, remaining single, conspiracies, plots, suitors with skill and weaved a tapestry of life that made her into not just a queen- but as a national icon. When you think England, Queen Elizabeth is right at the fucking top of the list! Long live the Queen!
When you think horror movies, this one pops up- and you think of Nancy. Strong, determined woman in a well done movie. Great music, characters, story, villain, and acting. She's even more bad ass in "Wes Craven's New Nightmare"!
Great female lead character, marvelous supporting characters, interesting plot, stylish visuals, and a great mood setting opening scene. The scenes with Barbeau really show her strength as she fights her fear to warn and protect her friends.
So, there you have it- my Top Five Movies With Strong Female Lead Characters!
