Throwback Friday: My Ten Favorite Female Villains

There have been many women in films but rarely do you see a compelling female villain. I have seen countless male antagonists who have stolen the show with their creepiness or their sheer awesomeness but being able to enjoy a female villain in a movie is so very hard to find. But today I’m going to list the female baddies whose wicked ways are shone in the most delightful (or horrifying) fashion and have grown to be some of my favorite characters. Enjoy!

10. Red Queen

Alice in Wonderland wasn’t the best Disney movie ever made but one thing I distinctly remembered about the film for years after seeing it in the movie theater nine years ago was the Red Queen. Her putrid behavior and her striking look were unforgettable, standing out amidst a mostly lackluster film that I pretty much erased from memory until I saw it for the second time a few months ago.

Helena Bonham Carter’s performance as the Red Queen wasn’t Oscar worthy but I’ll never forget her incessant screaming for her beloved Jabberwocky anytime soon. Continue reading Throwback Friday: My Ten Favorite Female Villains

An Updated Ranking: The Ten Most Awesome Women in ‘Star Wars’

When last I wrote this post The Last Jedi hadn’t even come out yet and I hadn’t seen Star Wars: Rebels yet. Over the past few years, women have become a central asset to the franchise in new, exciting ways. On the last day of January, I thought it would be fun to update this list and shine a new light on my ten favorite women in Star Wars so far.

10. Captain Phasma

Powerful, fierce, this chrome-domed villainess was everything the trilogy needed…and more. It’s sad that she met her demise in The Last Jedi but when she graced the screen her authority rang supreme. She was such a fascinating character. Continue reading An Updated Ranking: The Ten Most Awesome Women in ‘Star Wars’

Throwback Friday: I’m Convinced That Captain Phasma Isn’t Gone

This is hilarious! Looking back at this post that I wrote last April about Captain Phasma playing a role in The Rise of Skywalker is actually really funny. At the time, I was so heartbroken that Captain Phasma, one of the coolest characters to appear in this franchise, was gone that I refused to believe the obvious fact. Now, seventeen months later, looking back at this post is actually quite the comic relief. So, for this week’s Throwback Friday, here’s a look back at why I was so certain that Captain Phasma would play a role in The Rise of Skywalker. Enjoy!

The Force Awakens introduced some exciting new characters to the Star Wars universe and one of those incredible new additions was Captain Phasma. I remember seeing some concept art for The Force Awakens in the early months of 2014 and one of the most interesting pieces of art was the one that highlighted Phasma in concept form. It was literally one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Then, when I found out that this incredible new stormtrooper was a woman I was like, “WHAAAT!” She was so awesome!!! And then I watched The Force Awakens and I was like, “Huh?” There was so much hype surrounding that character and she ended up playing a ridiculously minor role that quite possibly didn’t need to be in the movie. She was simply eye candy for the film and a chance for Disney to say they introduced the first female villain to a Star Wars movie.

The Chosen One: Chapter Forty-Three

Recruiting a Frenemy

Finn was slipping on his boots and his jacket in his bedroom as he prepared to leave the house. Rose lay fast asleep, her black hair falling across her face. He smiled as he moved her hair aside and kissed her cheek before standing and leaving the room.

Through the dark house, he silently walked, making sure not to wake anyone, and then left the house. He climbed aboard his speeder that sat parked beside the house and turned the speeder toward the river that flowed behind their home. Hitting the accelerator he turned the speeder onto the river and followed the waterway until it opened out onto a small lake. He then turned the speeder toward the city where he rode through the crowded moonlit streets until he found himself before a sketchy looking cantina.
