Action Babes Volume 1: Women

Friday, June 18, 2010

Randomly combing the internet this morning I happened upon a post from focusing on the Top 10 Action Babes. Websites like that one makes posts with similar themes all the time, but something about seeing it this morning just inspired me to see which women would make their list. Thank goodness I did because it was another WONDERFUL example of how men are idiots!

I'm not saying that the list didn't include some quality babe-a-licious women. What I'm saying is that quite a few those picked were people
who were too new or not popular enough to deserve the spot, and that the order of their list was all out of whack.'s list of Top 10: Action Babes
10. Carrie-Ann Moss
9. Summer Glau
8. Halle Berry

7. Michelle Rodriguez
6. Kate Beckinsale

5. Jessica Alba
4. Uma Thurman

3. Milla Jovavich
2. Charlize Theron

1. Angelina Jolie

I'm sure that a lot of you are asking - what's wrong with this list? Well we didn't feel like Summer Glau should really be up there, or Jessica Alba all that much. Halley Berry was too crappy in Catwoman to really be mentioned as an action babe and then Carrie-Ann Moss should be MUCH higher than 10. She kicked major ass in Matrix.

After a LOT of agonizing debate (who knew Uma
Thurman and Angelina Jolie would be so contentious?) the girls and I came up with our own top 10 list. Picking the women on it weren't so hard, but choosing who would be what number was difficult because it's all subjective! Do we pick this one because she's the better actor or that one because she does more action movies? Headache city.
