Entertainment Weekly has added another 25 movies to its list of greatest action films. (My previous post about their list.) The new list is called The Bigger Bang!, and it’s described as “the online-only list of the 25 films that would have been included if the magazine had listed the top 50.” So, basically, leftovers.
With another 25 slots available, I would have expected to see a few more heroine-centric films. The only films that I saw in this group, though, were:
42 – La Femme Nikita (Grace’s review is here)
38 – X2
28 – Kung Fu Hustle
Out of the top 25, we got five (20%). Out of the top 50, we get 8 (16%). That’s just as bad as the U.S. Congress. I really hope they don’t add another 50, or we’ll barely exist!
