I'm currently watching Damages on dvd and i must bow to the acting genius of Glenn Close, she is perfect, either playing the psycho stalker (fatal attraction)or the manipulative, uber bitch (damages)

Mitsuko Souma from Battle Royale
Elle Driver from Kill Bill


Im sure more will come to mind.

Speaking of Kill Bill, the Japanese school girl that was Lucy Lui's bodyguard or whatever, was BAD ASS.

Michelle Pfeifer as CatWoman and Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy I also feel were good.

Ooh, I remember that one! Her name was Gogo or something? She was pretty cool.

I also loved Rebecca Romijn as Mystique and Kelly Hu as Deathstrike in the X-Men movies.

Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada also comes to mind.

I know there are some others but my brain is working slowly this morning.
