Scarlett Johansson in Lucy - I know this film has been criticized a lot, also by many feminists, and I agree it was silly on many levels, but nevertheless it made me feel extremely empowered in a way few movies have. A strong, independent female character (whose femininity or sexuality is NOT the main aspect of her being!) in control of her actions and the world around her is incomprehensibly rare theme in a movie of any genre. More of this, please.

Until they film "The Black Widow," settle for "Natasha Romanoff" in this! Scarlett Johansson is "Lucy," given radioactive drugs and transformed into an ass-kicker. Also starring Morgan Freeman as the guy behind her wonderful toys. Written and directed by Luc Besson, ami!
