The Top 7 Bad-Ass Babes of Cinema

3. Megan Fox – Transformers

For many people, Megan Fox was the saving grace of Transformers. Sure, there were huge walking robots that could talk, philosophize and save the earth from the grip of the Decepticons, but none of that compared to Megan Fox leaning over to check out Bumblebee’s engine, or running through downtown Los Angeles as Megatron blows up everything around her. If any babe could steal a scene from a thirty-foot tall Mac truck that can transform into a non-biological entity named Optimus Prime, it’s Megan Fox. And steal scenes she does. She may not wield any heavy artillery or teach anyone the P’s and Q’s of assassination, but dang if she doesn’t pull focus from every multimillion dollar effect in Transformers. If Michael Bay really wants to get a bang for his buck in the sequel, he ought to consider calling it: Transformers: Return of the Fox.

 2. Kate Beckinsale – Underworld I and II

There are a whole lot of vampire movies out there, and there have even been a few hot female vampires through the ages. But I think it’s safe to say that Kate Beckinsale takes the blood-sucking succubus cake. It’s hard to nail down just what makes Beckinsale so damn hot in these movies, but I’ll take a stab at it: her skin-tight leather unitard; her ability to leap twenty feet in the air and smite whatever she lands on; her fangs. All of these things would convince most men to join the ranks of the eternally damned if it meant they would have a shot at helping Beckinsale spread her wrath to the undead. And the great thing is, for all her vampiric idiosyncrasies, she’s actually pro-human! She believes humans should be able to live their lives in peace without being ordered around like slaves by some ruling class of privileged blood-suckers. That’s more than I can say for Sarah Palin! So I’m officially casting my vote for Kate Beckinsale as the hottest descendent of Vlad the Impaler this side of the after life.

1. Sigourney Weaver – Aliens I, II, III and IV

Some people may take issue with my ranking Sigourney Weaver number one on this list. She’s not the curviest, she’s not the most seductive, and she’s certainly not the most well-endowed. But if it wasn’t for Weaver we wouldn’t have the Jolies, Beckinsales and Pfeiffers. She’s the reigning founder and queen of bad-ass babes and shall sit atop the throne until her death. From the first time she blew a xenomorph out the air lock of the Nostromo, to her genetic orgy with the queen xeen herself, Ellen Ripley didn’t take a lick of shit from any of these acid-pumping aliens. In the process she erected a monolith of cinematic feminism that took no prisoners, and paved the way for all the kick-butt babes after her. She proved that whether she was saving a colony full of dim-witted marines, or planet earth itself, the last thing she needed was a man’s help. I think the best scene from the Aliens quadrilogy is at the end of the second film, when Ripley squares off against the queen alien. Strapped into an upright forklift turned alien combat armor, she smacks the queen around like a red-headed step child. Dodging its scorpion tail and blow-torching its face she screams in fury as she triumphs over her otherworldly foe. Now there’s a feminist cause I can get behind.
