A Female villain again ?NO thank you Hollywood ...hard pass


This reminds me of Blade Runner 2049 FEMALE VILLAINS RUIN MOVIES(&BOOKS)...She looks lame with that funny hat

reply

I agree with you about BR 2049. Roy Batty in the original Blade Runner was memorable because he wasn't your average archetypal villain, there was a grey area concerning the morality of his actions. The female villain in 2049 whose name escapes me was Marvel villain level predictable in that her facial expressions and mannerisms were all characteristically evil.

It's funny, I remember a lot about the new Blade Runner, but not her.

reply

Same!

True. I don’t think there has ever been a good female villain. It always comes off as more cartoonish.

reply

Well Rose the Hat wound up being a
Good villain, so there is that.

reply

I think you've nailed it. Disney had some great female villains. They were just cartoons.

What about Christabella (Silent Hill), the Alien Queen (Aliens) and that crazy bitch from The Mist?

Annie Wilkes from Misery.

Watch Akira Kurosawa’s Ran. Let me know what you think. :)

she carried the movie

According to this site if you have a female hero, it's feminist propaganda. And now if you have a female villain, they ruin the movie? Some folks won't be happy until all females just play dutiful wives, daughters, and murder/kidnap/abuse victims.

Your loss.

I understand where you are coming from but in this movie Rebecca Ferguson happens to be the best thing about the whole thing. The woman is obviously astonishing to look at (great casting, considering Rose was supposed to be incredibly beautiful) but she was also menacing and extremely likable in her evil ways. Don't give this movie a pass due to this alone.

Also, she was also the villain in the book, so the movie is just being faithful to the book. If the villain in the book was a man and they change it to a woman in the movie then I would understand completely.

The hat worked on my nerves

reply

Its supposed to go on your head.

reply

It still looked silly on her. By the end I was just laughing at how ‘hard’ she was supposed to be but while wearing this hat.

reply

I never read the book, but wasn't Rose The Hat a female in the book?
