Don't Believe The Hype! Catwoman Rocks!

I have come to the conclusion that the critics are full of bull shizz! I just do not understand why they hate Catwoman so much.  Brandon and I just got back from seeing the movie for ourselves.  I went in expecting the movie to be subpar, I mean how could I not have low expectations? Every review I came across hailed this movie as fit for the litterbox. I'm not sure what they were expecting but I think this movie does great justice to the Catwoman mythos.

There were a few really cheesey lines but given that it was a superhero/comic movie what do you expect? The script paid homage to Catwomen of the past (with a tiny kinda-cameo from Michelle Pfeiffer as Selina Kyle/Catwoman)

and did a great job with introducing Patience Phillips (giving her a great origin story) and making Sharon Stone a great villain.  I am not a Halle Berry fan by any means but trust me, if you are a comic book fan go see this movie. I totally loved it (Brandon didn't like it as much as I did but didn't hate it either).  I found one review that was favorable and well written.

OH and before the movie they showed the trailer for The Exorcist: The Beginning.  Yowza!  It looks good and scary.  It looks like it's going to scare the shizz out of me.  I might even schmear my undies!

And finally, 2XY posted this awesome picture

which I have put up permanently on my journal index page (at the bottom).  I love it!
