Catwoman (Pitof, 2004)

Catwoman has been pretty widely panned but I didn't think it was all that bad. It's standard Hollywood light entertainment. Big on effects, low on script. But watching Halle Berry in her Catwoman costume made it quite worthwhile to me.Gorgeous!

Meanwhile, my daughter really loved the film. Catwoman is a female super hero/villian and she finally got to see a woman that plays hard and kicks butt. It inspired R* to design her own catwoman mask and costume that she would like to make. That has to make it a good film.

It's interesting that in the end, Catwoman had to face a female protaganist. I don't think our society likes to see woman beating men - at least not without very black and white motivation.
