So I know you're less than a foot away from me right now- but I want to post my predictions for the world to see.
Yu Shu- can't beat aged wisdom
Roxie Hart- she's a crazy bitch who will do anything for a li'l limelight...
O-Ren Ishii- the scene in the meeting room with the head slicing... 'nuf said.
Chuck Lane- never saw it, I just like the name Chuck
Julia Lambert- Is there really a doubt in anyone's mind?
Pamela Landy- look at that hair swoop- the lady means business
The Bride- she's back with a vengeance and ballsy-er than ever
Hillary Faye- She's one of those religious types...
Billy- I guess...
Andrea- her compassion actually works in her favor, Miranda's only pops up once in a great while to bite her ass.
Llewelyn.
Eli.
The Joker.
Christine Brown- don't underestimate the girl next door- she will staple your ass!
Kate Coleman- Even when the odds were stacked against her- she took that bitch down!

Julia Lambert and Billy Costigan kills everyone. Can I just say that as much as I like Uma I NEVER believed that she could defeat O-Ren Ishii (or Lucy Liu for that matter). Lucy's just awesome.

(And luke Hello? Sister Aloysius vs Father Flynn isn't that the biggest battle?)

Yu Shu
Velma Kelly-both characters I can't stand, but Velma here at least gets shit done.
O-Ren Ishii-"Does any have anything else to say!?!"
Chuck Lane-Fuck you, Hayden Christiansen.
Julia Lambert
The Bride-Fuck you, Daryl Hannah, and your mannish shoulders.
Miranda-Yay, Meryl Streep!
The Joker-Oh, please, child.
I haven't seen anything else, or else can't remember the names. So.

Velma Kelly. She's a double murderess!

Chuck Lane. He's always one step ahead of Glass.

Julia Lambert. Enough said.

Jason Bourne. He's an amnesiac assassin. That's all it should take!

Billy Costigan. Why not?

Miranda Priestly. That's not even a question.

Anton Chigurh. That haircut alone...

The Joker. Duh.
