Ultimate list of series and movies featuring strong women


I'm not sure there is a list like this on the board, but I'm in the midst of gathering several series featuring one or more strong females. And I'm always open for new stuff, so I was thinking maybe we should start and maintain some sort of list.

I'll start and if people have additions I'll add them to the list.

In this list I also would like to see some stats like country origin, strength level and amount of visible feats.

I'll start with some 'obvious' entries, I will pan out in time, need to do some gathering. Also I first wanted to know I people think this kind of list is useful/wanted at all.


Series, lead character

Wonderwoman (us, [sign in to see URL], very frequent)

Bionic Woman (us, (parts)50x, frequent)

Cronicals Of Sarah Connor (us, 100x occasional)

Cybergirl (au, >100x, occasional)

Mega Mindy (be, >50x, occasional)

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (us, 25x, incidental)


Series, guest character

Smallville (us)
  Kara (>[sign in to see URL], occasional)
  Kryptonian Vileness (multiple) (>[sign in to see URL], occasional)

Xena (us)
  Callisto (goddess) ([sign in to see URL], incidental)
  Velasca (goddess) ([sign in to see URL], incidental)

Hercules
  (There are several chars, needs research/viewing)



Movies

Supergirl (us, [sign in to see URL], frequent)

My super ex-girlfriend (us, [sign in to see URL], frequent)

Superman 2 (us, [sign in to see URL], incidental)

Jennifer's body (us, 10x, incidental)
  Two girls show some minor (off) screen feats like pushing (big) guys and easily overtaking/killing them. (nothing special though).




So... Fire away emoticon

Re: Ultimate list of series and movies featuring strong women


Good idea, friend. I was actually just wondering if anyone's done any movie lists recently. The only one available (that's I'm aware of, anyway) is from the Xtreme Strength website, and that hasn't been updated for four years. Don't get me wrong, it's a great resource. But many, many, many additions could be made to it. Most of which cnnjack has tracked down for us. emoticon

Anyone been compiling an updated list? I'm currently WAY too bloody unorganized for such an undertaking. Though I'd be happy to contribute.

Re: Ultimate list of series and movies featuring strong women


I was playing around with the idea of creating a database of SG material for some time and started programming a couple of webpages for it. But to be honest I got fat and lazy and didn't finish it. (Ok, I lied: I didn't get fat.)

The idea was to not only collect information about which character played in which movie (e.g.) but also to include more detailed information like type of character (vampire, alien, ...), strenght-level, a description of the feats displayed in the movies or shows along with the type of feat (throatlift, steelbend) etc. So that in the end you could, for example, search for all throatlift scenes performed by an evil vampiress played by an Asian actress in US TV shows in the 1990's emoticon ... Or something like that.

But a simple list of movies would do, too, I guess emoticon

Of course I could go on and start some kind of list, but that would take forever and simply putting it here on the board is much too boring ... (for me anyway emoticon). If someone knows a reliable free webhosting service that supports MySQL and PHP, I might be willing to continue that project (but to be honest, I probably won't without some people helping with the programming stuff).

Re: Ultimate list of series and movies featuring strong women


A DB would be very nice, but good free webspace is very rare. Hope you can find some some day.

In the mean time I would be happy to start content for the db in means of this list.

At the moment I haven't that much time but I will try to compile information from the clips I have gathered over the years.

And also stuff I've been watching lately.

On account of that I've added info on "Jennifer's body" to the list.

Re: Ultimate list of series and movies featuring strong women


I have found a free webhosting service that has all I need (MySQL, PHP, [sign in to see URL], etc.) and registered a site there. In the next weeks, I'll dig out the project that I started and see how much work it would be to finish it.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Good news about the webspace,

I was also thinking it might be a good thing to add movies WITHOUT strength in it to the db.

For example I was watching Trick 'R Treat yesterday because I've heard there are female werewolf's in it.

Sadly it turns out there is only the suggestion of strength in a single scene.

Putting this kind of titles in the db prevents others from getting a movie 'for nothing'.

Really nice thoughts, I often have had the same idea.

In the last year I started using digikam ([sign in to see URL]). It´s an awesome tool to organize pictures and videoclips. It saves all information into a sqlite database. (folders, tags, descriptions etc etc). The upcoming versions will bring a new feature, mysql support :-)

Its a great fun to use that app and additionally one can use the database to populate a website.

Btw, it runs on windows, mac and linux.
