Welcome to another bedazzling edition of "Hottie Report Card". At the request of our Movie Fan Central users in last week's report card, this week's student will will be noneother than the one and only Rosario Dawson, star of the recently-released SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. The cast of the comic book "noir" sequel has plently of appeasing eye candy thrown into the mix, but we all seem to agree that Rosario needs her time to shine, unlike Jessica Alba, who's been consistently in the spotlight for far too long. So let's pop on our grading caps, professor! Besides, how often do we get to grade a hottie who actually has a "back-to-school" photoshoot under her belt?
I'll admit, it took more than the first SIN CITY and the second MEN IN BLACK for me to discover the true potential in this hottie. Through this professor's eyes, Rosario automatically sets off a "girl next door" bell in my head. Then again, that could just be the alarm for the fries at the Mooby's she manages in my personal fantasies. Yes, I have bizarre fantasies.
Rosario doesn't seem to have grabbed much attention from derriere connoisseurs, except for those who've done their research. While I can't say it's been given justice on the big screen, Dawson's creek has proven itself worthy in multiple photoshoots throughout the years. Is it too early in the day to start the "ass-to-mouth" debate?
If you remember this magical moment from some years back, where Rosario was caught hosing herself down in a bikini (and with an unexpectedly young audience), you know why Rosario deserves an "A" here. Here delightful bouncing sequence from CLERKS 2 should have you on board with this decision. Hell, if you remember how distracting those balls of yarn were in JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS, you probably side with this decision. Somehow, this lovely pair has gone too long without proper recognition, so let's hope this pic can do them some justice.
In a realistic sense, Rosario is in exactly the kind of shape I'd hope for my spouse to be in. While she may not be necessarily chiseled from stone, she's still got the curves to sustain an hourglass figure when it's called for. Of course, she's proven time and time again to rock a bikini, and her posture is generally outstanding, to say the least. In other words, she's pretty damned well-aware of how to make herself look hot at the drop of a hat.
I find it morally wrong to talk smack on an actress who's worked with so many iconic filmmakers of the modern era, including Quinten Tarantino, Danny Boyle, Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Smith. Not to mention, she's generally lovely to watch. Of course, along with a long-standing acting carreer, Rosario's bound to have had a few stinkers (ZOOKEEPER, THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH), but we'll keep on forgiving her so long as she occasionally resorts back to that black leather.
Rosario first plucked on my love strings when I learned she was a fan of the Johnny the Homicidal Maniac comic book series, so my opinion here may be even more biased than usual. She's very charismatic and has a genuine taste for nerd culture, which is rarely a turn-off for movie fans. However, I think if something puts Rosario on a pedestal above other hotties, it's her friendliness. At least I feel like I could talk to this hottie without getting smothered with mase. For Alba, I'm not sure I could say the same. Now let's end this column the right way: with a picture of Rosario and her GRINDHOUSE co-star Rose McGowan, armed, naked and dangerous.
