Latest Movie Ratings

Looks like Halle Berry’s good looks and popularity didn’t save Catwoman from being considered a mind-numbingly boring action movie with soulless amalgamation of quick edits, computer images and swooping, nausea-inducing dolly shots. The dialogue is too awkward to be unintentionally funny and the urban setting is too muddled to be considered gritty.
Critics also believe that calling this a comic book adaptation isn't completely accurate, since Berry's character, Patience Phillips, has nothing to do with the original Catwoman of the DC Comics series, Selina Kyle, who's previously been portrayed by Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt and Michelle Pfeiffer. She's not a villain -- she's not even a villain with a heart of gold. She just dresses like a bad girl and roams around at night, displaying her frightening martial arts skills, and ends up being mistaken as a criminal.
That was the rating up till now, personally I guess one should give it a try anyways. On the other hand, seems like the top 3 movies so far are: Spiderman 2, Fahrenheit 9/11, and Before Sunset.
