Nerd Girl of Note #124: Brigitte Nielsen (@brigittenielsen)

Brigitte Nielsen is a favorite of mine. I will watch anything she is in. Anything. Even Cobra. Even Red Sonja, which was not a good film adaptation of the She-Devil with a Sword, but in 1985 who is going to play big Red other than Brigitte?

Not all of her films are gems, and not all are easy to find. Some I have not seen are Galaxis with Richard Moll and Sam Raimi, 976-EVIL II, The Double O Kid, Murder by Moonlight, and Domino. Some of the better known films include Beverly Hills Cop II, Cobra, Rocky IV, and of course, Red Sonja.

I don't care about the films, frankly. Exploitation and B-Movies are for fun rather than art (typically) and it is always the stars of said films you want to see more than their performances. So here's to Gitte. The video store would have been a more boring place without her.
