  • "Tank Girl: (1995)

    Takes place: In the year 2033, where the world's water and power supply are being controlled by nefarious gangs. Tank Girl is basically a bad ass leader of a resistance group who steals back water fights against a group of renegades called the Rippers. She's basically our spirit animal. 

    What she's wearing: Combat boots for butt-kicking, a bomber jacket, and a baby tee. An outfit that would not be out of place, say, at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in the mid-90s. 

    Wearability: Somebody zip those pants up. 5 (out of 10)

  • "Barbarella" (1968)

    Takes place: In the year (wait for it) 40,000. In this super campy film, Jane Fonda's Barbarella must rescue an inventor from a far off planet, but runs into trouble (natch) and has to sexy her way out. 

    The outfit: A ridic, shiny space onesie, complete with thigh-high boots, stun gun and super mod cuff bracelet. 

    Wearabilty: 2 (out of 10) — unless you're Miley Cyrus, in which case, by all means ... 

  • The Fifth Element (1997)

    Takes place: In the 23rd century. The plot revolves around a battle between good (played by Milla Jovovich as Leeloo) and Great Evil, played by, well, Gary Oldman. 

    The outfit: Designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, this cut-out-riffic leotard has actually become more iconic than the movie itself. 

    Wearabilty: 1 (out of 10), though we suppose you could take this out to the gym or the pool, if you wanted! 

  • Blade Runner (1982)

    Takes place: In a dystopian, future-times Los Angeles. The year? 2019. Humans share the world with robots, known as replicants, who model themselves after humans in every way. 

    The outfit: Replicant Priss dresses as a bedraggled glam rock street walker. 

    Wearability: 3 (out of 10) (unless the whole Courtney Love broken doll thing is your vibe). 

  • Blade Runner (1982)

    The outfit: Sean Young plays a replicant who truly believes she's human. Unlike Darryl Hannah's Priss character, Young's Rachael works a classy 1940s vibe. 

    Wearbility: 8 (out of 10), because that fur coat is a lot of look (in the best way possible). 

  • "Tron: Legacy" (2010)

    Takes Place: In 2009, but in an alternate universe inside a computer. Inside a computer! 

    The outfit: Olivia Wilde's Quorra is an "isomorphic algorithm," and like everyone inside the "Tron" universe, wears skintight glow-in-the-dark unitards. 

    Wearability: 1 (out of 10) (Because think of how annoying it's going to be trying to go to the bathroom in that thing).
