Ellen Ripley, star of four Alien movies, goes up against another modern day cinematic icon, the star of the three Blade flicks. You would think that a sword-wielding vampire slayer (who wears
kick-ass shades) would have the edge over a former space trucker, but
that’s not the way the voters saw it… And what the voters saw, the
