Thank heavens film has come a long way since the Batman sequel in 1992. Perhaps cool and kinky at the time, but today Michelle Pfeiffer’s cringe-worthy take on Catwoman would be laughable and most certainly would not suit Christopher Nolan’s reboot of the Batman franchise. In anticipation of the The Dark Knight Rises’ Popcornography review, I thought a look at a past memorable Catwoman quote would be most appropriate. The Dark Knight Rises features the new and rebooted Catwoman which is played by Anne Hathaway. Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman would most likely give Christopher Nolan a heart attack as her performance is so far removed from the “realistic” direction taken with his entire reboot. Anne Hathaway, on the other hand, does a remarkable job but for more on that you will have to wait for the EXCITING review (coming soon). For now enjoy the above quote and the below screenshot of Pfeiffer as Batman Return‘s Catwoman.
Kinky? Horrendous? I can’t decide.
Of course, I could always continue talk about the unspeakable horror that was the 2004 Catwoman movie, but I won’t. I won’t because Popcornography likes to pretend it doesn’t exist. It’s that bad. My heart goes out to oscar-winner Halle Berry for agreeing to participate in that atrocious piece of garbage. Bad BAD life choice Berry. For shame.
Oh by the way please take note of the missile-bearing penguins in the Batman Returns poster seen above. Nolan would rather die before he makes use of missile-bearing penguins?! Like Pfeiffer’s Catwoman, it is all just TOO much and TOO bizarre.
