Top Five Movies of Rose McGowan
I’m sure we all have “that” girl. You know the one. You can’t just say she is hot. You have to qualify it. “You know she would be freaky in the sack.” “She’s not a conventional beauty, but she is damn sexy.” “She may not be the hottest, but she has something in her look.” Whatever the case, you know exactly what I mean, women like Debi Mazar, Milla Jovovich and Illeana Douglas.
Rose McGowan also fits squarely in that category. (I think I should just rename the category girls who could have or did date Marilyn Manson – like Dita Von Teese or Evan Rachel Wood.) However, let’s just get this out in the open – these girls are attractive. There shouldn’t be any qualifying going on in our heads or through our mouths. Just enjoy their unique beauty. Darn it, there I go again qualifying. Just enjoy their beauty.
Now, on the other hand, about Rose’s choices in movies, well, did I mention she’s really lovely? Well, though tough to make five, there are a couple good movies here.
Yeah, top five was not the easiest of decisions. Heck, maybe “Conan the Barbarian” which opens on Friday the 19th can replace this Brendan Fraser vehicle (who, as an actor, is squarely in the Nicholas Cage camp of actors who do quite a few bad movies that you forget the good ones, like “The Quiet American” or “Gods and Monsters” in Brendan’s case). I’m still waiting for another movie centered around cartoons and comics and their alternate world like “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” I love that genre of movies, even though it has less than ten movies total.
Rose, Rebecca Gayheart (“Urban Legend”), Julie Benz (“Dexter”) and the awesome Judy Greer (“Archer” and Kitty from “Arrested Development”) all are young, beautiful and, well, they do stuff. I don’t recall what they do; all I remember is pretty ladies (to be said in the Jerry Lewis/Professor Frink voice.)
Is Rose only barely in the first part of this movie? Yes. It still counts! It’s my list! She’s pretty.
Now, this one, oh my goodness. A machine-gun for a leg? Awesome. Well, if the machine gun was actually shaped like her leg and fired bullets out of her toes (are you listening to me Quentin Tarantino – you’d go nuts for a bullet shooting toe gun – call me) then it would be really awesome. Still. Machine gun leg on hot girl beats just about any augmented human, including the Six Million Dollar Man.
Yeah, this movie is just awesome. I remember seeing it at around the same time as “The People Vs. Larry Flynt.” I remember thinking, “How come the movie that is ok at best is getting all the Oscar attention and no one cares about this awesome horror movie ‘Scream?’” Then I realized that the Oscars didn’t really matter that much unless you bet on them. I got the special effects from “Thor” to win!
Agree? Disagree? Which movies would make your Rose McGowan top five?
