The Ten Most Iconic Female Movie Characters Blogathon

Thanks to Natasha at Life of This City Girl for this blogathon relay: The Ten Most Iconic Female Movie Characters Blogathon.

I’ve been ridiculously behind on going through all the posts in my email inbox so I didn’t even realize she had passed it to me.  I’m painfully behind with the one week deadline so I’m extremely sorry. I hope I didn’t get kicked out because I’m making it up by getting it up within 12 hours since I knew about it. Hopefully that makes up for it?

This blogathon is started by Dell on Movies.  I just started following this blog and its absolutely awesome! You should drop by to check out the Horror marathon for October and all the other reviews.  I’ve only had time to check out a bit but I’ve enjoyed a lot of it. This blogathon relay was passed on to the following bloggers:

Dell on Movies
My Filmviews
Time Well Spent
Flixchatter
The Warning Sign
Public Transportation Snob
Martin Teller’s Movie Reviews
Film Grimoire
Alex Raphael
Silver Screen Serenade
Screenkicker
Cinema Parrot Disco
The Sporadic Chronicle of a Beginner Blogger
Life of This City Girl

 So here’s the deal as Dell on Movies explains:

A list of 10 iconic female movie characters has been made. That list will be assigned to another blogger who can then change it by removing one character (describing why they think she should not be on the list) and replacing it with another one (also with motivation) and hand over the baton to another blogger. Once assigned, that blogger will have to put his/her post up within a week. If this is not the case the blogger who assigned it has to reassign it to another blogger.

Here is the current list after Natasha has removed M and replaced her with Maria Von Trapp:

ellen-ripley

princess-leia

marge-gunderson

scarlet-ohara

jackie-brown

rose-woodhouse

clarice-starling

the-bride

shosanna-dreyfus-tmifmc

 maria-von-trapp

This is a super hard list to choose because for one, I haven’t seen a few of these characters and the ones that I’ve seen, I believe they belong exactly where they are. So, who to remove? The choice goes taking out Shosanna Dreyfus.  There is really one reason.  And that’s because all the other girls, regardless if I’ve seen the movie or not, I’ve heard of them and know of who they are. However, for Shosanna Dreyfus, I had to search up who she is.

I’ll replace her with:

hermione granger

I struggled with choosing a replacement mostly because I was choosing between Laurie Strode, returning Mary Poppins but then Hermione Granger has been in our lives for 8 years with the Harry Potter series.  If anything, its always a joy to watch the smart and talented Hermione Granger.  She begins as just a clever geeky girl who wants to excel in magic especially since her parents are ordinary folks.  Although all she wants to do is focus on her own studies, we watch her grow as she grows brave and courageous for her best friends.  She isn’t afraid to eventually break a rules if it means that she could help out. Her amazing magic talent with a wand or potions or spells makes her an even more important to the whole Harry Potter situation. She didn’t just grow up as Hermione Granger but she also introduced us to an amazing young actress, Emma Watson.  That’s why she deserves to be here.

Thanks to Natasha again for giving me the opportunity to participate  in blogathon relay! Even if I’m late, it really wasn’t deliberate.  I don’t know if she passed it on to someone since I passed the week deadline but if she did, then this is just something extra, I guess 😉 I’d completely understand.  And thanks to Dell on Movies for starting this awesome idea.  Remember to go check out these two lovely blogs.  I promise lots of fun! 🙂

I now pass this on to Ryan at Ten Stars or Less. You have a week! Good luck! 🙂

  1. I was wondering when you would see this 🙂 I didn’t pass it on yet, so all is still good haha. Great choice, although I do prefer book Hermoine to onscreen Hermoine. (Books are always better!) 😀

  2. Great list, Kim! Shosanna Dreyfus is one of my favorite movie characters. I’ve been a bit reluctant to write about her for my weekly feature because she’s complex, inspiring, strong–yet, I just don’t know how to approach her character. I’ve been grappling with this for a few months and still haven’t got a seed of an idea for her. One day, Kim. One day!

    Clarice is amazing and I’m looking forward to watching one again Silence of the Lambs. Again, great list!

  4. I’m way, way behind, and somehow missed that you even posted this. Thanks for keeping it going. Surprised it’s taken this long for Hermione, but I figured Shoshanna would be the one cut. Nice work. Sorry for my tardiness.
