    Who are some of your favorite female characters in films? (would you say that roles for women have evolved? Or have they always been ‘meaty’ones?)

    A few of mine:

    Kill Bill
    The Bride
    Vernita Green
    Elle Driver
    O-ren Ishii

    Pretty Woman (sue me)
    Kit De Luca
    Ok Vivian Ward

    Basic Instinct
    Catherine Tramelle

    Sally Field
    In pretty much everything. This woman never phones it in.

    Misery
    The one and only Annie Wilkes

    The Girl(s) With the Dragon Tattoo
    Lisbeth Salander, Noomi Rapace, Rooney Mara

    Ran
    Lady Kaede

    Mad Mad: Fury Road
    Imperator Furiosa (sublime, Charlize)

    Alien/Aliens
    Ripley!

    Many others.

    What are some of your favorites? And do you think roles for women are ‘better’ now than “then”?

    True Romance is one of my favorites, a big reason being Patricia Arquette’s “Alabama Worley”. She’s adorable….but watch out, Tony Soprano….

    Speaking of adorable, love Tess McGill…not adorable, but also Katharine Parker in Working Girl.
