Is Bella better than a plant?

October 9, 2011

Check out Bitch Flick’s deconstruction of Total Film’s list of greatest female film characters, “Seriously? These Are the 100 Greatest Female Characters?

Should Bella have been on it?

On the one hand, she is surely a better FEMALE character than Audrey 2, the PLANT from Little Shop of Horrors, voiced by a man.

On the other, she, like too many of these “great” characters,  is a victim of sexual violence, and is both very young and very white. So, that begs the question, how is Total Film defining great?

It would be nice if the list included more female character diversity, and, um, no male-voiced plants!
