    Cool Tough as Nail Females Roles.

    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.

    Dina Meyer - STARSHIP TROOPERS is one crazy bug killer!



    Pam Grier COFFY - sexy and cool rolled into one.

    Anne Parillaud - LA FEMME NIKITA is one super assassin.

    Mira Sorvino - REPLACEMENT KILLERS is equally as tough as Chow Yun Fat in this one!

    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.

    Waaay too macho for me. I prefer my women soft and cuddly. That looks like it would hurt.

    I would.
    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"
