Angels of Action!

Dangerous Damsels! Ferocious Femme Fatales! Sensational Superheroines! We love female action heroines… and pretty much all women in general.

Jessica De Gouw as The Huntress on Arrow

by CultRetro November 2, 2012

Australian actress Jessica De Gouw will soon debut as The Huntress on The CW’s Arrow series. If you strip away the science fiction, horror, fantasy, paranormal, experimentation, creativity and heart of Smallville, what you have left is Arrow. This show takes itself far too seriously for me. I’m TRYING to like it. I really am. I feel […]

Lana Clarkson: The Barbarian Queen

by Steve Law October 31, 2012

The sword and sorcery craze was booming in the early 1980s when Roger Corman produced a Conan knock off starring the beefy Rick Hill in the title role of Deathstalker. The movie has a ridiculous plot focusing on the title character questing for the “Power”. Deathstalker is not a very relatable hero, he’s not even […]

Dana Gillespie as Ajor the Cave Girl

In 1968 a really fun movie called The Lost Continent was released. It centers around a broken down steamer that will carry any kind of cargo and any kind of passenger with no questions asked. After a mutiny and a couple of bizarre turns the ship wanders into a Sargasso Sea of lost wrecks dating […]

Gina Carano in the “Female Expendables” Movie

by CultRetro September 25, 2012

Some action heroes ACT like badasses, but there are a few action heroes that actually ARE badasses; Gina Carano is definitely the later. She’s was at one time ranked as the third-best female fighter in the world. I don’t know who the other two women are, but they must be damn scary. Gina Carano is gorgeous and […]

The CW’s Amazon

by CultRetro September 6, 2012

Apparently Allan Heinberg has been tasked to write a script for a Smallville-esque TV version of the early years of Wonder Woman with the working title of “Amazon” for The CW. This might skip the whole inflammatory costume debate that plagued David E. Kelly’s Adrianne Padalecki series by simply NOT having Diana Prince appear in […]

    In the Canadian sci-fi series “Continuum” a sexy cop from the future chases bad guys backwards in time to the present day in an effort to save the future! Hmmm… that WOULD make a good show. It was announced today that Continuum has been picked up by SyFy, so we’ll be seeing it here in the […]

Ninja Babes From Space

by CultRetro August 23, 2012

Magnificent! The title of the show tells you everything you need to know. It’s not as classic as “Surf Nazis Must Die”, but it’s up there.               The Ninja Babes have been around for years. I ran into them at Megacon (where Stormy Tempest: Perils in the Past was born). The only thing […]

Cooper Harris in The Greatest Adventures of Mighty Woman

by CultRetro August 20, 2012

Created, directed and written by Eric Tozzi, “The Greatest Adventures of Mighty Woman” is (so far) a concept trailer starring the smokin’ hot Cooper Harris as an actress that may or may not be a superheroine. Eric has recently released a few “Mighty Feats” clips, which are basically pre-viz special effects shots of Mighty Woman using […]
