Before I get into this I just want to tell you guys, today is my 1 year Blogiversary!! I started last year on Halloween and I am so glad I did this because I have made so many new awesome buddies out there. If you would like to send a present, please do, I accept gift cards, old DVDs, movies made by Luke and Eric, anything will do!
I was recently nominated by the wonderful Boo-Rian, I mean Brian aka Proby extraordinaire, over at Hard Ticket to Home Video, to chime in on the ten most iconic female movie characters blogathon that has been passed around as of lately.
If you are not familiar with this blogathon it was started by Dell on Movies and the requirements are as stated from the creator himself:
A list of 10 iconic female movie characters has been made. That list will be assigned to another blogger who can then change it by removing one character (describing why they think she should not be on the list) and replacing it with another one (also with motivation) and hand over the baton to another blogger. Once assigned, that blogger will have to put his/her post up within a week. If this is not the case the blogger who assigned it has to reassign it to another blogger.
Here are the current ladies:
As Brian mentioned in his post, I also racked my brain trying to figure out who to pick. By the way I think Brian was totally right, Elsa is iconic, every little girl wants to be her right now and hell even grown women like myself love her.
There were so many characters out there that came to mind Vivian Ward from Pretty Woman, Sally Albright from When Harry Met Sally, Baby from Dirty Dancing, Samantha Baker from Sixteen Candles and hey even Stifler’s Mom from The American Pie movies. But really I debated between the one I picked, Mia Wallace and Annie Hall. When it came down it I thought Mia Wallace was just too great to pass up, she inspired all the events that happened in Pulp Fiction and Uma Thurman herself was Quentin Tarantino’s muse. I am sure lot’s of people will be dressing up as her on Halloween, when someone is that iconic that they inspire Halloween costumes, then they deserve to be on this list.
So for my pick I will take out the Exorcist chick because she is just too ugly to look at right now, seriously I agree she is iconic, but she is the only one I felt comfortable with taking out of the mix. For this challenge, I pass the baton to a super cool chick Devin Nicole Smith from Movies n’ Stuff. Ok girl it’s yours for the taking!
