It’s Batman Day: Who’s Your Favorite Catwoman?

Catwoman, she’s one of the most iconic DC Comics characters of all time. She also happens to be one of my favorite comic book characters for her sleek catsuits, her unabashed flirtatious nature, and her incredible ability to kick serious butt. Several women have taken the mantle as the feline and very capable femme fatale and today, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought she would be a perfect fit. Enjoy!

Julie Newmar

The first major appearance for Catwoman was on the iconic 60s’ Batman series and the actress who brought her to life was Julie Newmar. I don’t know anything about this version of Catwoman but I couldn’t leave her off of the list considering that she holds so much importance to Catwoman’s time on the small screen.

Eartha Kitt

Before you had Wesley Snipes making history as Blade or Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther you had Eartha Kitt as the first African-American actress to play Catwoman in the 60s’ Batman series. She wasn’t playing the role of Batman’s love interest in the series but she was still able to kick some serious butt and pave the way for other black actresses to play the character (Halle Berry and Zoe Kravitz.) That’s pretty awesome.

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer is undoubtedly the most iconic version of the character. Transforming from a timid, glass-wearing secretary into a confident, dangerous and very alluring lady in a remarkably shiny catsuit with a whip, Pfeiffer is the best thing about Batman Returns.

Halle Berry

Okay…this is my first time seeing this version of Catwoman’s outfit and it’s definitely cool, especially, I’m sure, for guys, but unfortunately the only superhero film to ever be helmed by a black woman would be deemed one of the worst superhero movies of all time.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway would be the next actress to squeeze into a tight black suit and catch Batman’s fancy as the fascinating Seline Kyle. Now, unlike the other Catwomen who were called Catwoman in their respective roles Nolan referred to her only as Selina, changing her storyline just a bit. Undoubtedly, she’s one of the best things about the film.

Camren Bicondova

And last but not least, there is Camren’s portrayal of the iconic character but what makes her so different is she is the only version that is shown as a teenager who grows up over a course of seasons on the show. That’s pretty cool.

And then, we’ll have Zoe Kravitz next. I can’t wait to see her as Catwoman. *squeal*

So, of these six versions of the iconic Catwoman, which is your favorite? For me, undoubtedly my favorite, despite Michelle’s clear iconicism, my favorite Selina is Anne Hathaway. I think she’s truthfully beautiful, I love her dagger heels, and plus, she’s part of Nolan’s films and I love his concept of these classic DC Comics characters.

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I Finally Watched ‘The Devil Wears Prada’

I watch a lot of movies but I don’t often watch girly movies like The Devil Wears Prada, so yesterday’s first-time viewing of the film was rather enjoyable.

It’s funny that I should watch this film considering that I’m really looking forward to Cruella next week, a movie that’s being hailed as The Devil Wears Prada meets Witches.

Anne Hathaway Was '9th Choice' for 'The Devil Wears Prada' Role

As I watched The Devil Wears Prada where one of my favorite actresses ever, Anne Hathaway, is dressed in so many beautiful outfits she could rival Padme for Best Movie wardrobe, I found myself pleasantly surprised by the film but a little underwhelmed.

The Devil Wears Prada has become an iconic movie and yet its story was as cliche as cliche can get. Every beat was predictable, nearly every outcome was as expected, and yet it was enjoyable in that quintessential 2000s’ movie way that had me smiling from ear to ear.

Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci, and Emily Blunt also star in this wondrously girly flick and it was nice seeing them in this movie. Ultimately, while I cannot say The Devil Wears Prada is the best film I’ve ever seen, I am glad I have finally watched it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

Counting Down My 20 Favorite Trailers: #2-‘Interstellar’

Interstellar was the first Christopher Nolan movie I had ever seen in the movie theaters. It was because of this trailer I’m about to show you that my family and I went to see it on a beautiful but late Thanksgiving night six years ago. So, with no further delay, here’s the trailer.

Perfection is the word I will use for this trailer and here’s why I choose such a sacred word in the English language.

  1. 98% of the trailer consists of shots and moments from the first hour and twenty minutes of the movie. Only two shots are shown from the second half of the film and those shots refrain from any spoilers whatsoever, leaving viewers with a chance to be truly surprised going into the film.
  2. The tone is somber but laced with hope due to a powerful combination of emotion and music that leaves one on the verge of tears and with chills over their entire body. I mean, that music is insane! In IMAX, it injects itself into your very soul and left me on more than one occasion absolutely determined to see this movie. I’m glad my family and I actually did go see it, for it is undoubtedly one of the best sci-fi movies I have ever seen.

This trailer leaves much for the imagination but it doesn’t hold back from providing plenty of awesomeness along the way.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

I’ve Finally Seen ‘Les Misérables’

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll know that I’ve begun a personal quest to watch all of the best musicals. Some of you suggested, after seeing masterpieces like The Sound of Music and An American in Paris, that my next stop should be Les Misérables. Well, considering that the film just dropped on Netflix, I decided to give it a look and I’m glad I did.

Let me not beat around the bush, Les Misérables is a musical I will definitely not be watching again. Its songs are ultimately forgettable except a few, I found some moments almost unbearably corny, and Russel Crowe’s singing was a bit cringeworthy, but besides those few cons, the movie was beautifully directed and done.

You all said I would cry. I didn’t disappoint. I cried at least five times during the duration of the film and wept profusely at the end. Hugh Jackman did a fabulous job! (Who knew the man could sing?!) His very first few minutes struck me as he conveyed such emotion in this role. I will have to watch The Greatest Showman next and see what he did with that movie.

Secondly, I was surprised to find Eddie Redmayne so believable in this role as the lovestruck rebel (who knew he could sing either?!) I always knew the man could act, just look at the dedication he put into bringing Newt Scamander to life in the Fantastic Beasts movie. He’s pretty much the only thing that’s solid about those films. And we can’t forget how perfectly he portrayed Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything. In an alternate universe, Redmayne could’ve potentially played the role of Kylo Ren. I wonder how that would’ve turned out…

(Honestly, I’m glad Adam Driver got the role though. He is perfect!)

And shut the front door! Anne Hathaway was perfect in this movie, even if it was only for a little while. Considering that she garnered an Oscar for her role in this film I thought she was going to be in it longer than she was. Unfortunately (*sniffles*) she was gone pretty soon.

All in all, Les Misérables is a film that I’ll never forget. It’s a movie that touched me in more ways than one and it once again, like Prisoners, provided me more admiration for Hugh Jackman as an actor.

I’ll give this film 91 out of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars. It was good but it wasn’t great.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

‘Interstellar’ Is the Perfect Movie for Father’s Day

It’s Father’ Day and that means it’s time to spend time with Dad in whatever way you deem worthy of such a special holiday. I love to watch movies with my father and the film that is not only one of the best movies ever made but is perfect for Father’s Day is Interstellar. Why you may ask? Because it highlights the beautiful relationship between a father and daughter, a relationship that isn’t often shown in most movies. And what a relationship it is.

It’s a love that transcends gravity, time, and space, culminating into one of the best science-fiction stories told on the big screen of all time. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I hope you will choose to watch it one day because it is truly remarkable (and should’ve been nominated for Best Picture.)

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful Father’s Day.
