1. UMA THURMAN VS. VIVICA A. FOX IN KILL BILL, VOL. I (2004)

The Kill Bill movies were home to some of the best girlfights to ever grace the cinema, but it’s the brawl between Uma Thurman and Vivica A. Fox from the first movie that trumps them all. It’s not just the beautiful women or flashy fight moves that makes this fight work; instead, it’s the twisted sense of humor that Quentin Tarantino brings to the scene that puts all of these elements over the top.

Set in a cookie-cutter suburban home, this fight is a perfect dichotomy between straight-laced Americana and our society's pervasive violence. And instead of featuring choreographed fight moves that resemble a delicate ballet, this scene ratchets up the intensity and gore to an 11 as Thurman finishes her hated rival off with a dagger to the heart.
