Yeah, gotta agree with most on this list.  Sigourney Weaver should be number 1, maybe number 2 (behind Mary Shelley).  Without Shelley, we wouldn't even be having this conversation, so that might just barely trump Weaver's influence.  Also, I'd add Nichelle Nichols and place her at number 3, most likely.

I vaguely remember Two Moon Junction.  Did Milla Jovovich really get naked in that film?  If so, that's just sick and it's even sicker for it to be mentioned in this article.  She was 13 when that movie was released which means she was probably 12 when it was made!  SICK!  That said, I did enjoy her nudity in Fifth Element.  I've always thought she was hot, ever since I saw her in Kuffs with Christian Slater, but I still think she could benefit greatly from a little "enhancement" surgery.

Also, Gale Anne Hurd is credited in all the spin-offs/sequels of Terminator because she had a hand in writing the first one both story and characters.

If Tyler is on the list, why isn't JK Rowling?  If someone from Lord of the Rings should be included, then so should Harry Potter.  The success of the Harry Potter movies are the reason other fantasy films are getting made now. 

Milla Jovovich on the list?  For those lousy Resident Evil movies?  Give me a  break. 

I know Katherine Bigelow is the flavor of the month but she is not influential in scifi.  I never even saw Strange Days and basing the argument on Point Break is ridiculous.  Point Break had Keanu Reeves in his usual bad acting and Patrick Swayze in a horrible hairstyle.  You forgot the irritating Lori Petty was also in that movie.  It was remade better as The Fast and the Furious.

Obviously Mr Brown doesn't care..he's getting a paycheck, no matter how many people he alienates.  At least he can say "Look at the traffic my crappy list brough in.  Lets piss off more nerds!"

Point Break is not Sci-Fi so it's awesomeness while true is POINTLESS to this discussion.

Here you go Hanso... Roger Lodge had an office in the Blind Date production studios, but he rarely came in, because he'd tape all the intro and outros for the season in a few days on a seperate sound stage.  That being said, when he did come in he was pretty short, but man, his wife (I think, maybe GF) was super-sexy.  And yes, he always wore a cheesy leather blazer. 

Redhairs... I hope you enjoyed the anti-Gale anne hurd clip.  As for Jovovich's age/nudity, we can certainly agree that she was hot in 5th element.  I thought she was nude and Of Age in 2 Moon Junction, but I was watching it through scrambled HBO, so please cut me some slack.  I must have been watching Sherilynn Fenn.  I did some fact-checking (something I do after an article is published), and it turns out Milla first gets nude at the the old age of 16 in "Return to the Blue Lagoon".  But no matter what, I strongly disagree about her needing enhancement surgery.  She is great-looking as-is!

Taydor.  I do care.  If you think the Mania paycheck is big, you should ask Hanso.  I confess to enjoy a little bit of trolling, but for the most part, I like the women on the list.

Jppintar - I remember a week or so ago when I wrote this, I had a reason for not inculding JK Rowlings, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was.  It couldn't have been a very good one, because I miss her on the list more than anyone.  Even Nichelle Nichols.   But I strongly disagree with youabout one comment...  I liked the first Resident Evil movie.

Axia777.  So long as you concede Point Break's awesomeness, I will concede its irrelevance.  But man, it's good.   Any excuse to have a clip from that movie is worth it.

Mr. Brown - You have made my day.  Thank you.

just flat out wrong. ellen ripley just middle of the list? with liv tyler above her. while sigourney is known as a talented actress, her roles in sci-fi leap out at you. not so with liv tyler.to be fair (while a good job) her role in lord of the rings was virtually nothing more than a recurring bit part. and linda hamilton too...yes, she deserves to be on the list but sigourney held lead roles in a four part sci-fi series (alien), two/three in another (ghostbusters) and has seen the likes of galaxy quest, wall-e, and of course Avatar.

jolie is big but again, not known for sci-fi...wanted, mr and mrs smith aren't sci-fi last time I checked. she kicks ass yes but is highly overrated and barely deserves to be on this list let alone at number 1. hell megan fox has more right to be here than her and that's saying something.

literally one of the most disheartening lists i've seen

If you're looking at the creators list, Bigelow earned her spot based solely on Strange Days. This movie does what most good Sci-Fi should do: Look at social issues through the lens of a future/fantasy setting. In this case, it was a look at media imagery and people wanting to be "more a part of the show" (reality TV, anyone?) and about the issue of celebrity vs notoriety.

Personally, I think it's one of the best films that seems like no one has seen. I try to change that by recommending it every chance I get...



...or maybe I'm just biased because Lenny Nero's handgun of choice is the same as mine....

Everybody is forgetting Liv Tyler's legitimate claim to Scifi.  Her role in that unforgettable genre classic Armegeddon!

Angelina Joli may be hot (she doesn't seem that attractive to me but I'm a hetero chick) but that doesn't give her any cred as an actress.  Didn't see the Toomb Raider flicks but I thought she was very ordinary in Mr and Mrs Smith.  If you want a butt kicking female go for Sarah Michelle Gellar.  Or maybe Summer Glau as both Cameron the terminator and River Tamm.  But really, between Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver you have the butt kicking female covered already.

Nichelle Nichols should definitely be included.  She inspired me to be an independant woman when I was a small child.  Uhura was awesome.

Point Break was a very cool film but in no way was it scifi.
