Hmmmm. Never really bothered me whether a film, be it QT’s or anyone else’s, is full of females or full of males. The only thing that should matter is how well they can act, not how “strong” their character is. In the case of DP, I felt all the female characters were boring with too much over-the-top attitude, whilst in JB and KB the female character’s were just cool (maybe its because they were strong, but I didn’t feel disgusted when Beatrice become a mother at the end of KB). I don’t care how ‘strong’ (insert I can be just as masculine as any male - yawn) a character is, I care just whether they are good or not.
And I thought Alabama in TR was a great, interesting character. The assumption that all prostitutes must be weak and thus uninteresting (a statement that I and many of my female friends would disagree with) is downright ridiculous.
