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.
