If Rooney Mara's fearless turn as Stieg Larsson's goth-punk hacker heroine Lisbeth Salander teaches us anything, it's that you should never, ever cross a woman with fire in her heart and vengeance on her mind. But the titular Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is just the latest in a long history of utterly human movie heroines who remind us how ferocious and unrelenting a woman wronged can be. Celebrate the fictional ladies who have helped teach society not to fuck with the so-called "fairer" sex, and let their righteous fury be a lesson to us all during this warm and fuzzy holiday season.
We're gearing up for a Tarantino-heavy March here in Los Angeles, what with QT's month-long programming stint at the New Beverly. And here's some news you can expect to hear more on as fan boys corner the director between screenings: Ain't It Cool's Jeremy Smith reports that Tarantino will direct a spaghetti Western starring his Inglorious Basterds Oscar-winner, Christoph Waltz. Previously, Django himself (AKA Franco Nero) revealed his own involvement, name-dropping Keith Carradine and Treat Williams as additional co-stars. How do you say it? That's a bingo!
