Tank Girl (1995)

Honestly, now. Can you really not like this movie in all its campy glory?  I know it’s not on any of AFI’s film lists, but IMDB’s rating is currently at 4.6 out of 10, which I think it still a little sub par than it deserves.  Lori Petty seems to revel in her role as Tank Girl, but I wonder if Naomi Watts ever thinks back to this and tries to ignore the fact that she was in it…

If I may, I’d like to make a comparison with this and Sin City.  One of the reasons Sin City did so well was its true adaptation from a comic book, and also the “comic book” feel and transitions.  The same goes for Tank Girl, although people seem to dismiss this movie because of it.  However, this movie should not be taken seriously, but it’s a whole lot of fun and a badly needed antithesis to the testosterone-driven action movies, with many great one-liners.

So relax, grab your favorite snacks, and watch this with your friends and have fun for a change with Tank Girl.
