You know what I love? Movies about women who kick ass. It doesn't have to be physical. I just want to watch awesome ladies being awesome, or doing awesome things. (That was my final use of the word "awesome", so stop thinking about making this into a drinking game.)
You know what I hate? Rebranding. Or, to be specific, since this rant will focus on movie posters: Posters for female-driven movies that go out of their way to appeal to a male audience.

2015 has been a pretty lady-ful year, so I thought I'd share a few of my favourite ass-kicking ladies that have warmed my heart and shattered my soul in 2015.
