The 23 May 2003 issue (#711) of Entertainment Weekly magazine had a special feature on The Top 50 Cult Movies. An interesting collection of films makes their list which includes a lot of those films that didn't make it big at the box office on original release, but which have since become those favoured movies that became known through video and still get talked about, forming sub-cultures and generating outside-of-mainstream thought. Some of these films are only "cult" in the very widest sense, such as Scarface and The Shawshank Redemption. Others are the obvious, like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and This is Spinal Tap. And some that are rather out there, like Pink Flamingos and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Those are all in EW's Top Ten, as is, of course, Blade Runner.

Their comments on Blade Runner start off, "Screw Han Solo and Indiana Jones; Harrison Ford was never cooler than when he was hunting replicants (like the one played by Daryl Hannah) in this future-shock noir."


Obviously I didn't create a whole page just to tell you that though. No, the title on this page is what this is all about. To head up the article, a few iconic characters were recreated by the actors who made them famous. Daryl Hannah bravely stepped up to have herself punked out as Pris again - not an ideal look for a beautiful <ahem>-year-old actress! Also featuring on a contents page of the magazine, here are the two pictures of Daryl Hannah as pre-apocalyptic, post-modern Pris (click to enlarge):

Daryl Hannah in Kill Bill as Elle Driver (a.k.a. California Mountain Snake)I think it would be unfair to leave it at that. As I said, that is not the most attractive that Daryl can look and I just know somebody who isn't keeping track of the movie business is wondering whatever she might be up to now. Well, Daryl has been extremely busy making movies recently, and takes the leading role in some of them. Most anticipated though is probably her major role in Quentin Tarantino's fourth film, Kill Bill, (starring Uma Thurman, David Carradine, Michael Madsen, Vivica A. Fox, Lucy Liu, Samuel L. Jackson)

The picture on the left is the best I can come up with at the time of writing this, showing Daryl as Elle Driver (a.k.a. California Mountain Snake) in Kill Bill.
