”Don’t think! Just pick up that phone and make it happen!”
I know, I am cheating by choosing a female character that is mainly known as a tv charcter, but she appears in two movies, so for me she counts as a film character as well and in a list of female character she should not be missing. Especially as someone who has her own psychological term, known as “The Scully Effect”.
“In an entertainment world where women are disappearing from multiplexes, where men bulk up as superheroes while women don’t eat but sip pink drinks, we need to remember that there was once a very short heroine who hunted monsters and talked about Einstein, who kicked ass and questioned her faith, who went to work with a man she loved but didn’t rip his shirt off over lunch, who didn’t want to believe, but opened herself nonetheless to possibility. We need Scully back, even for a moment.’ [x]
