Thursday Movie Picks #376: Femme Fatales

Hello there and welcome to Thursday Movie Picks a weekly series where you share your movie picks each Thursday. The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.


This week's Thursday Movie Picks is Femme Fatales


Didn’t want to overthink it so I’m going with the first three movies that came to mind.

Jennifer’s Body (2009)
Made a sacrifice for a rock band’s quest for fame, Jennifer comes back hungry for boys and she, a cheerleader, has no problem attracting them.

Gone Girl (2014)
Amy is so adept at playing all these different personas for love, admiration, sympathy, etc to get what she wants and for revenge.

The Jungle Book (2016)
I know femme fatales are supposed to be human or some supernatural in a female human form…but Kaa almost immediately came to mind because she is, like Jennifer in Jennifer’s Body, a literal man-eater. Kaa the python in the 1967 Disney animated movie was male but in the new live action 2016 movie is female and voiced by Scarlett Johansson who has this raspy seductive voice that hypnotises Mowgli to stay and trust in her as she slithers and wraps her body around him ready to constrict him to death. Johansson sings too, a hypnotic tune called Trust in Me, but the song I think, is only played in the end credits and I recommend you to have a listen.

  1. I really need to watch Jennifer's Body! I also chose Gone Girl. Kaa is an interesting choice for sure!

  2. Kaa is such an inspired pick for this!

  3. Jennifer's Body is a great pick. It was only a couple of months ago that I watched that movie for the first time.

  4. I have not seen the first or 3rd of your picks. Gone Girl is great! She is just one nasty, nasty bitch. I still have to see the original animated Jungle Book with Kaa portrayed by the delightful Terry-Thomas)I think). I wouldn't mind seeing the newer version.

    1. The new Jungle Book is such a gem. The jungle and animals looked great and the boy acted very well with the CGI characters.
