I'm a who fan, especially the 2005 reboot/continuation of the ancient show. I personally look forward to a female Doctor.
Spoiler alert... Spoiler alert
I also loved the latest companion. The first openly gay female character on the show, the running gag that she can't get laid because the world coming to an end interrupts her was initially hilarious. Imagine your first date with a girl being interrupted by The Pope.
Although Bill was the first openly gay female companion she was preceded by Captain Jack, openly everything sexual male. I'd say bi..... but that doesn't cover it. He doesn't care if they are human as long as they say yes.. like Captain Kirk.
But brave.... ok, just following orders BBC mandatory sexuality break through aside, the New Doctor is not the first powerful female character in science fiction or tv or movies.
The works of many writers going back decades have had strong female characters. As usual Robert Heinlein was there long before with his preference for hot, redhead, omnicompetent heroes. ( like his wife, Virginia ) or EE "Doc" Smith and his hyper competent female characters. Or Tolkien and his.... although a modern feminist nut would object to the Little Mermaid plot with Arwen.
In other words. Much ado about little. From both sides.
I don't like several of these choices, Videodrome, for example, but at the time it was a fresh, nightmare inducing film that stuck with me, even if I never want to see it again. Others like Inception seem like pretentious crap to me, although with great effects.
Which just goes to show that taste is taste and a movie I gush over may leave you cold.
Any opinions on this list?
I will say that 3, 4, 5, 18, 20, 21, 26, 28, 32, and of course, Bladerunner ( original cut ) are classics and I recommend them without reservation. ( yes, even Buckaroo Banzai, it's awesome in so many ways )
11, 16, 23, ( which I loved )& 30 all get honorable mention but. And the But can be severe.
17, Starship Troopers, REALLY torqued me off with it's butchery of the source material, which the Director hated. Ironically I love the parts where he's most heavy handed, and the furthest from the source material, the infomercials pushing the fascism he wrongly saw in the original... and I don't think he ever read. I really believe this is a movie made from a description of a book. Third hand.
There are a few I don't remember, or didn't see, or just didn't enjoy. ( #1 comes to mind, but that might be for personal reasons )
