Good movie moms often go unrecognized. The past two years, the Best Supporting Actress Oscar has gone to two mother monsters (not Lady Gaga) who give the role kind of a bad name. So, to celebrate Mother’s Day, we take a look at some moms who either kill their children with kindness, or literally kill for them.
The Bride (Kill Bill)- As played by Uma Thurman, The Bride spends all of the first Kill BIll movie thinking her daughter is dead. The second half of Volume 2 delves more into their relationship and adds some disarming humanity to the story. Here’s a mom who takes time out of finishing her revenge conquest to lay in bed and watch Shogun Assassin with her daughter. If that’s not a great mom, I don’t know what is.
