Memorable strong female roles can be as enticing as their male counter part roles.

Not in any particular order:

Misery (1990): You donít want to get Kathy Bates mad at you! She can get real nasty.

Johnny Guitar (1954): In this western, Joan Crawford donít need no protection from law, or the outlaws.

Heroic Trio (1993): Charlieís Angels from hell.....and hell is coming with them.

Godfather III (1990): Connie (Talia Shire) will do anything to protect her brother Michael, even if it mean assassination.

When I saw your title, the first movie I thought of was Aliens. Ripley was a badass.

I actually feel Kathy Bates was a much stronger woman in Deloris Claiborn. She protected her daughter and didn't take crap from anyone in town, including the detective. In Misery, she was simply psychotic and I dunno if crazy=strong?

The pinnacle of strong female leads, both physically and mentally, must be Sarah Conner (Linda Hamilton) in T2.

Demi Moore- as a Navy Seal

Meg Ryan- Courage Under Fire

Both were very good in their roles. Not over the top "tough" but tough enough to make you say "Wow".

I see more and more women taking combat roles in our current conflicts, so it's not unbeliveable the courage that Meg Ryan showed as a downed helicopeter pilot in the movie.

Well, I was thinking that I wouldn't mind the other way around, but this could take a long run!
