Live Poll: Femme Fatales, So Lovely, So Deadly

With recent movies like “Atomic Blonde” and “Proud Mary”, and “Red Sparrow” and “Acrimony” being release soon, I thought an updated Femme Fatale poll might be in order. Who is the best (AKA, most seductive and dangerous) femme fatale in movies?

My problem is that I sometimes confuse “Warrior Women” with “Femme Fatales”. A femme fatale, by definition, has to be seductive in luring people, ethier knowlingly or unknowingly, to their doom, as well being physically able to kill them herself. Yes, the modern version blurs the difference between the two by making her being able to use weapons to kill. If I got any that don’t belong on this list and if you have better suggestion, talk about it here.

Still I pose the question that since the modern definition of a femme fatale often includes the women being able to kill herself by using a weapon or fighting ability, what is the difference between a warrior woman and a femme fatale anymore? And yes, I do agree that love and sex can be a weapon too.

This may have caused a problem because of the images I have used. Please understand,femme fatales use sex and seduction as weapons and a tool to lure kill people or have a person killed in movies and in books. I have tried to use images that showed seduction, sex (without going pornographic), and allure as best I could. In some cases I could find one - like in the one for Evelin Draper (“Play Misty For Me”) and Debbie Strand (“Devil In The Flesh”). In those cases, I used pictures that showed how deadly those women were.

Almost all the changes are done. The exception being the first one because “Red Sparrow” and “Acrimony” to yet to be released, I think the future tense is the right tense to use there. Once both of those two debuts and are in widespread release, then I will change it into past tense.

Correction, I had rewrote the first sentence and moved “Red Sparrow” into the recent releases category.

Your second paragraph still has some typos, but I would suggest that you just remove the paragraph since it isn't really needed.

Why can’t I post my new movie, trailer and poster to IMDb?

Are you sure you got that right thread to ask, “Why can’t I post my new movie, trailer and poster to IMDb?”. You might want to ask that question to the IMDb as a “Problem”.

I might remove Melinda from the list because the more I read of “Acrimony”, I see that she is really the scorned wife of a cheating husband and not really a femme fatale.

Well, characters like that could be femme fatale as well.

They might be but it appears that the woman who is trying to steal her husband is the real femme fatale. Got to remember that seduction in luring men to their doom is a key element in femme fatales.

If you're not sure about Acrimony, you could remove it. If the poll goes live, you'll be able to add options, but not remove them.

dgranger,

Thank you for making the updates.

You may wish to re-arrange the choices in you list so that the more centered images appear in the first five choices. The IMDb Editors only consider polls for the IMDb Home Page when the first five images crop well (images are centered or none of the images are cropped).

For more information, please read:

Is that any better? The trouble is that I couldn’t find a better picture for Delphine Lasalle. There was four of them in which two you can’t recognize her as she was kissing and the one with the blue light was hard to see her. IMHO, the one on the list was the best one.

dgranger,


This looks better. It appears that you have images that crop the best are in the first five choice.The fourth image, Jane Smith, still may not crop well.
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls021832253/mediaviewer/rm172136704



When a poll appears on the home page, the images for the poll images for the first five choices are cropped to an aspect ratio of 140 by 207 pixels (or roughly a 2 by 3 aspect ratio). The red rectangle roughly shows how the cropped image for Jane Smith would look like on the home page.

Regardless, some of the images beyond the first five may be a tad too risky for the poll to be considered for the home page if/when this poll were to go live.

Yes I did. It is Fatima Blush from “Never Say Never Again”. She is one of the evil psycho killers in the James Bond films.

I see that you corrected the error and Jessica re-pushed your poll. There is no additional action on your part needed.
