HELLO, AND WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
THIS PLACE WILL BE ABOUT REVIEWS OF MAKEUP THAT I USE AS A FREELANCE MAKEUP ARTIST, MOVIES I SEE, AND THE MAYHEM I WITNESS, LOL. THIS WILL SIMPLY BE A PLACE OF FUN & REFLECTION. I'M HOPING THAT YOU WILL LAUGH AND LEARN A LITTLE BIT MORE FROM MY BLOGS. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE POSTS HERE ARE JUST MY OPINION AND THE WAY I MIGHT VIEW THE WORLD.

Some people know how much of an Action junkie I am and some have no clue, so welcome to my world. My husband and I were talking the other day about how there aren't a lot of American females who are doing action films, not to mention Martial Arts. Yes, we have Mila Jovovich (she's just ok), and we had Angelina Jolie (more of a brawler) for a second, Jennifer Garner, and I will give props to Zoe Saldana for her role in Columbiana. Zoe Bell is an amazing Martial Artist but her background supports her being able to sell a fight and make it believable. She was also Uma Thurman's stunt & fight double for both Kill Bill films.
Hopefully Gina Carano will be the start of the new breed in Haywire. Here's the trailer:
One can always say that, well there are no scripts out there for women to be as great on film like the men are able to. But, we are living in at a time when that doesn't really matter anymore. People of all kinds are making their own exciting demo reels, recreating scenes or creating web series with their own vision on YouTube every day. So there really isn't any excuse, is there?
Here's what a female fight scene should look like, this is Bridget Riley (stunt woman) here's a link to her IMBD http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0726994/:
Maybe Amy Johnston will be the future, she's a real Martial Artist, has talent and presence!
