Totally agree with your list! Loved that you put Alabama from True Romance.

Also thanks for following Comeuppance Reviews! We appreciate it.

Just started following your site too.

I've seen some of these movies. I'm so glad you put Sarah Connor and Ellen Ripley as 1 & 2. I had that pic of Linda Hamilton on my fridge for years hoping to get buffed like her, but alas I'm still soft and pudgy.
I couldn't get past the first ten minutes of Ever After with Drew Barrymore. Her English accent was just awful.
You can add Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games and Mallory Kane from Haywire to your list.

No problem, buddy! You have a great site.

It's awesome seeing the females kicking ass for once! I'll be sure to check out THG and Haywire, thanks! ;)

Looking forward to your take on Haywire. Gina Carano rocked in it.
