Is it just coincidence that pretty much all of these women only do chick flicks - or, as I've taken to think of them, chicksploitation films (shitty female role models at 12 dollars a pop)?

Seriously, other than Michelle #1, are Jolie and Bullock the only ones who (mostly) don't...?

I'd have to disagree with the #1 choice - it's visually well-done, and the choreography is completely adequate but not awesome. Master swordsman Bob Anderson, who choreographed this fight, did far better work - as evidenced by literally half of the remaining list (he did "Princess Bride", "Highlander", "Zorro" an all the "Pirates" movies). It's not his fault that the threeway battle between these characters lacks heart - but that's what's wrong with it. It feels rote and mechanical.

I would definitely vote "Crouching Tiger" up for #1, it's probably the best sword fight there'll ever be on film (if not exactly realistic) - not just for the fight arrangement, but for the intensity Michelle Yeoh and Zhang Ziyi bring to their characters amid the swordplay.

I'd say Watchmojo ripped this off almost point by point from Cracked.com - but then, these are the 10 worst offenders in this category so let's just chalck it down to "great minds think alike".

Good one, as usual - although I can't believe you included the "Sarah shoots the T-1000 with a shotgun" comparison, and still left out the "Sarah says something about dark roads ahead and hope and shit" from the same movie.

As much as I love Mojo's lists, I have issues with this one - namely: 

- No, I don't agree with your number 1 - it should have been Carrie Henn from "Aliens". She is a true OHW - no, she is THE true OHW, having exaclty one title to her name (which she f*cking nails) and that title being one of the most important movies, ever. Then, she sashay'ed right out of the movie business to have a by all accounts perfectly fine life. Culkin's greatest hit, "Home Alone", is A. two movies, not one, and B. not anywhere near an important one (or two), and also he was in "The Good Son", "My Girl", "Uncle Buck" and "Jacob's Ladder", all of which, while not big hits, weren't obscure either

- miss Silverstone wasn't so much a OHW as a budding star who then disappeared into obscurity, like so many others have also done

- Shannon Elizabeth is (sorry, young lady) just one in a never-ending string of young women with attractive bodies and limited acting chops who are put into movies exclusively as eye candy for the male viewers (see also: Denise Richards as a nuclear physicist). Most of them never get anything resembling an acting carrer, but that doesn't make them OHW's

- this one is nitpicky, but it might be a little premature to call Brandon Routh a OHW; he could turn up in something next year, or get a comeback as an older dude, it's too early to call

- this one is too, but... honorable mention to Mira Sorvino? Yeah, she had only one performance in an Oscar-winning Woody Allen-movie but with 70 credits to her name - true that none of them were actual big hits (even if "Mimic" is sadly underrated in its genre - it did manage to get nominated for 5 Saturns, and won one of them) but then we're setting the purview of OHW to every actor who was only in one recognized movie, regardless of what they went on to do. I believe that would be "most of them".

I cannot adequately describe how awesome I think this talk is - Adam is the best, hands down one of my favorite public figures in the entire world, I'm not kidding!

Also, check out another cool dood in the background - that's Michael Shermer leaning on the console in front of the "Ryder" sign.

So, you just decided to skip "Django shoots miss Lara from what can only be described as her right side, yet she flies straight backwards", then...? Well, there is a lot to sin in this movie...

On the subject of everyone having a supercomputer in their pocket.
Hey, did you know that your smartphone is a computer that’s more than ten times faster than the late 70’s 9-million-dollar Cray-1 supercomputer? We’re carrying around sci-fi levels of computing power in our pockets – literally; less than a generation ago, writers thought computers of this power level would be smarter than humans.Now, apart from this being awesome – especially if you’re a bit of a geek like me – this means that the conversation we...

I realize it's hard to whittle Hollywood's army of cool snipers down to just 10 but I'd at least give honorable mention to another sniper of the "serial killer" variety: Bobby Thompson (Tim O'Kelly) from Peter Bogodanovich's 1968 minimalist drama "Targets". 

Also, someone should make a movie about "The White Death", Simo Häyhä, whose record fighting the Germans in Finland during the WWII Kollaa offensive leaves even Zaitsev in the dust. Badass fact: Häyhä preferred doing his handywork using his standard issue Mosin-Nagant rifle's iron sights, forgoing a scope.

Seems unbelievable that the only time an actor ever played this character (for a 2012 docudrama), the scenes were cut from the film.

Aaaargh my tummy hurts...! - personal fav: The one around 1:37 where some goats "baaah" like they're supposed to, and then the overcoat one answers "RAAAAAAH!" like some kind of psycho. AAAahahahahahah-heheeheheeheeheheh...

Yeah - you know, looks supercool in many ways and I'm looking forward to see where it goes, but point of order: That "modelling a 3D quadcopter in midair" scene makes it look as if anyone could do that (they even say that very thing) but that just isn't true.

Anyone who's tried even super-easy 3D manipulation - say, SketchUp, or even something like Second Life's build engine - can tell you that while, yes, you can probably grab a shape and fiddle it about, as soon as you're doing anything with a purpose, you're going to need to measure, you're going to want to move, resize, rotate etc. at precise increments and/or points, attach, relate and so on. 

Sure, you'll think you don't - it's just playin, right? - but you don't have to take my word for it; go watch some kids in shop class. They'll be fine just monkeying around to begin with, making random crooked shit, but after that they'll either loose interest, or start asking how to make an actual thing, like a model car og plane, or even just a fruit bowl that doesn't wobble.

Also: No, you can NOT just "3D print" a working quad from a haphazzard model! That's just plain misleading.
