* In GuyRitchie's ''Film/SherlockHolmes'', Holmes and Watson find themselves in a fight with a number of dirt antagonists. Both Watson and Holmes are willing to improvise.

* Alabama in ''Film/TrueRomance''. She doesn't use graceful kicks, or fancy backflipping, or any other SheFu bullshit when she's struggling for her life against a brutal hit man three times her size. What she ''does'' use is a corkscrew, a porcelain bust of Elvis, shampoo in the eyes, a toilet tank lid, an AerosolFlamethrower, the corkscrew again, and five blasts from a shotgun.
