The Top 10 Badass Bitches of Scifi Cinema

badassbabes2

It’s impossible to become a badass babe. If your a femme fatal, you come out of the womb with a gun in one hand and sword in the other. You naturally exude a combination of toughness, self-reliance, vulnerability, and sexiness. A badass babe doesn’t follow any rules. They will maim and blow up everything that gets and in their way and do it while wearing the least amount of clothing as possible.

Movies and television are chock full of these badasses and here are the top 10 bitches you don’t want to fuck with.

Leia_Bikini_Fighting_Carrie_Fisher

Princess Leia (Star Wars)- While some may baulk at her ridiculous hair buns and experimentation with incest (make-out scene with Luke), Princess Leia is tougher than anyone ever gives her credit for. Leia spies on the Galactic Empire on behalf of the Rebellion. When captured she is tortured by Darth Vader but remains loyal to her cause. She later disguises herself as an Ubese Bounty hunter to save the man she loves from being a permanent trophy in Jabbas palace. If these not be signs of courage, nobility and romance need we mention the gold bikini?

Buffy Summers (Buffy The Vampire Slayer)- Giving vampires a good spanking (in more ways than one) this chosen one is a one girl revolution. Popular high-school cheerleader, gifted student and prophesied slayer of the armies of hell. An inspirational action heroine to say the least. Buffy’s so badass she died and came back to life, not once but twice.

The Bride (Kill Bill)- A crazy, homicidal/hysterical assassin hell bent on on revenge. Beat up and gunned down at her wedding by a machine gun, then shot in the head at point-blank range and put into a coma. Pfft. Beatrice Kiddo wakes up and is just like “whatever” then proceeds to travel the world and kill every single person for fucking up her wedding and quite a few people who really had nothing to do with it. Hacks and slashes an army of sword wielding goons, lops off the head of the head yakuza, stabs a mother to death, pulls the one good eye out her rivals face, and uses the “five-point-palm-exploding-heart” technique on her ultimate enemy. If that isn’t the textbook definition of badass then what is?

wanted-jolie-poster

Fox (Wanted)- She drives fast cars, shoots big guns and kills bad men – by the dozen. Fox, A tatted up doll who bends bullets, talks dirty and is a member of secret group of assasins. Calm, cool and collective. Someone who can approach you in a grocery story, tell you your about to be assasinated and make you feel ok about it. Pretty much everything you want out of a woman.

Cara Thrace, A.K.A Starbuck (Battlestar Galactica)- Strong-willed, funny, hot-headed yet at-times, oddly vulnerable. A shoot first, ask questions later kind of gal. This hard-drinking, cigar-smoking ace pilot is so badass she was prophesied as the harbinger of death.

Pris (Blade Runner)- She can do ultra-quick cartwheels across apartments! She can pull boiling eggs out of a saucepan with her bare hands! She can crush a man’s head with her thighs! Could this robot woman be any more badass?

Leeloo Dallas (The Fifth Element)- Regenerated 5000 after her time to serve as a fifth element, a key needed to fight mass destruction headed for earth. She’s cute, and vulnerable and intensely sexy. An orange haired supreme being with a dodgy accent that can scissor kick your face off.

serenity

River Tam (Serenity)- Sure she looks like a delicate flower with a slight case of down syndrome but bombard this psychic teenager with flashy anime and she’ll crush your throat while beating the crap out of seven other guys at the same time. A child prodigy, a genius, who was so smart and evil the government kidnapped her and basically prodded and raped her till she went schizophrenic. When she has the occasional moment of clarity she is an unstoppable killing machine with ninja like skills. When she’s on a tear no power in the known verse can stop this badass bitch.

Sarah Connor (Terminator 2)- Not much to look at, but she is certainly one bad-ass mother (of the saviour of mankind). Here’s a broad that knows how to fight, shoot and detonate pretty much anything and deal with a whiny Edward Furlong. Sure, she started off as a typical, helpless, damsel in distress (T1) That is, until Kyle Reese dropped into her life (literally) and told her of a horrible fucking future ruled by machines. Hear something like that and damn if your not going to go stark raving mad, get ripped to shreds and become a woman on a mission.

aliens-with-newt

Ellen Ripley (Alien Quadrilogy)- From the first time she blew a xenomorph out an airlock, to her genetic orgy with the Queen alien, Ellen Ripley didn’t take shit from those tail whipping, mouth snapping bastards. A scared and vulnerable astronaut in the first film. Her awakening as a flame thrower wielding warrior did emerge until the second film. When her maternal instincts kick in and prompts her to go through hell to save her surrogate daughter, Newt. Most badass moment. Squaring off with the Queen Alien at the end of the second film. Strapped into mech suit fork lift, she smacks the queen around like a red headed step child.
