Every now and then, you need a little pick-me-up. Perhaps a massage, a shopping splurge, or even, say, a quick refresher on inspiring and kick-ass silver-screen ladies. And, while we love a good mindless comedy as much as the next gal, it's important to always have a couple of good flicks that can easily pass the Bechdel Test
, or at least offer us a leading lady who rules
. With that in mind, we put together a monster watch list for you to stream, stat. Our one requirement: The films all had to be on Netflix Instant Watch, which (sadly) disqualified Alien
, Working Girl
, and Doomsday.
But, we think this list of hackers, warriors, and vampire slayers will give you plenty of that gooey girl-power goodness.
