The Tom Cruise character has a female partner, Victoria or "Vicka". Their supervisor appears to be a woman named Sally, who communicates exclusively with Vicka over a video link from an orbiting space station. They discuss the mission assignments and related requests.

Later in the movie, they rescue a woman named Julia who has been in deep sleep for sixty years. Vicka and Julia have a couple of scenes together where they discuss the events that led to their current situation.

Passed and how. It was FILLED with women, talking to each other about all kinds of stuff, and generally being awesome.

I actually wasn't really looking forward to it; a friend wanted to see it, so I went along. Oh, but it was great. Four named female characters, including the protagonist and her sidekick, and they got the vast majority of the badass fight scenes and moves.

I will say I was amused at the prevalence of tweezers and waterproof mascara in the zombie apocalypse, but I was pleasantly surprised when the protagonist actually got dirty.

It was also a pretty good movie, although the final scene was ludicrous. The story was decent, it ratcheted up the tension well, and the fight scenes were beautifully shot. (Maybe a little too much bullet-time, but I can't see 3D so it may be better for people who can.) I really recommend this for people who like women-focused action movies.

Origin - Spirits of the Past is an anime movie I stumbled across on Hulu. The plot isn't anything very spectacular; it's your normal humanity must learn to live in harmony with nature pastiche. Additionally, I've always found myself to like subs better than dubs and this is a dub, so I wonder what subtleties of tone and meaning I might be missing. However, it's visually interesting (although sometimes the 3D animation isn't as integrated with the 2D animation as I'd like) and I'm a sucker for post apocalyptic storylines (a town built over the decaying hulks of city buildings).

Also notable and the reason for posting: it passes the Bechdel test multiple times.
