All hail Jennifer Lawrence, again. Now with her third entry in the Tough Girls list. Earlier this year she became Katniss Everdeen herself. Now she’s Tiffany the Philadelphia Widow in Silver Linings Playbook. Hummina, hummina, hummina.

No longer a girl herself, Angie the Godmother can be damn proud of Hailee Steinfeld, Chloë Grace Moretz, Jennifer Lawrence (the new Mystique), Noomi Rapace and Rooney Mara (the new Lisbeth Salander). These five tough girls are gonna form Best Actress nomination slates for the next quarter century.
Title IX indeed.

4th Kick-Ass
2010 Great 114 Points

Chloë Grace Moretz

Convulsively funny, gleefully inappropriate and brilliantly executed, Kick-Ass exuberantly fulfills its title. A high school comedy as much as a spoof on superheroes, it deftly mines the touchst…

Noomie Rapace

Hollywood must be licking its chops to remake this Swedish hit. Chockablock with career-making roles, combining fashionable anti-capitalist politics with feminist blood-lust, and striking a crispl…
