Signory Weaver as Ripley in the first Alien Movie.
Right when she is to go back down to get Newt, she is packed to the hilt in fire power, weighed down, she enters the elevator, leans against the side
and for a brief moment, looks scared and shows her humanly fraility.
But knowing within her heart, she cannot abandon someone weaker than herself, closes her eyes for a minute to pull herself together and pushes the
button to descend into the maws of hell to do whatever she has to in order to save Newt.
I only hope when and if I am ever tested, I have half the mettle this charactor showed.
As I have gotten older, I do not read a lot of Sci-Fi like I use to, now it's mainly political and current event books - however I did come across a
most interesting set of 3 books that I bought for my grand daughter, "The Midnighters" by Scott Westerfeld and the charactor that impressed me the
most was Melissa, the Mindcaster. The charactor portrayed is a individual with true power and yet, she questions her motives and actions. She
doesn't sell her soul.
Now, this book is listed for "young adults" but I found all three Midnighter books by Scott Westerfeld quite interesting because the storyline dealt
with time and mutiple dimensions.
I also like charactors that are out of the ordinary, not your run of the mill Barb & Ken. These kids were "the outcast".
1) The Secret Hour
2) Touch of Darkness
3) Blue Noon
