Tom over at Movies and Music Cafe decided to give me a list of his top ten cool leading ladies, and it is a rather impressive list! Tom runs an awesome site with a great little menu offering an array of starters, mains and desserts, ranging from movies, reviews, books, soundtrack and the likes. It is a very cool site that I would highly recommend checking out!
Should you be interested in submitting a Top Ten list, draw up a list of either your top ten personal favourite movies or a top ten list by a specific genre/theme and send it along to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see a few more lists!
