    Tiger Girl

    ★★

    Tiger Girl has style and grit but the messages it tries to send are questionable. What starts as a power fantasy a la Fight Club quickly evolves into pointless and unjustifiable violence without consequences. The main character Vanilla becomes incredibly unsympathetic and hateable throughout the course of this movie.

    So here it is, the sequel to my favorite movie. Is it as good as the first one? Not quite. Is it a visual feast and features great character development for every single one of the fantastic, colorful cast members? Hell yes.

    The movie's biggest issues lie in the editing and pacing. In my opinion it could have been a lot tighter, and the movie takes a long time to really get going, featuring a very long part of its…
