    Good to see your work again, Dena! How I missed you.

    :3

    Kitty-face for the... terrible film with a great review.

    I have a huge problem with dorky characters that in a matter of days by any means they overcome their insecurities and rise above out of the blue.
    As a dorky guy myself with years working out my issues I feel personaly offended by them.

    I missed you Dena T-T

    Yah, I plan to go into it more in Part 2, but it is really annoying that Patience really doesn't have to DO anything. Stuff gets done to her, and karma grants her special powers and the change in her is treated as a good thing.

    Awesome review!
    Have any special effects supervisors ever gone on to be good directors?

    Oh thank god its not an april fools stunt! Catwoman is one of my pet bad movies, so when I saw this pop up I was like "Please don't let this be a crappy fake out!"
    Great video Dena, you always deliver :D
  • Cyborcat
    avatar
    LOL. It was kind of a half-assed fake out in that I was hoping people would expect a positive review like the ones I normally do instead of the royal thrashing it turns out to be =P

    I somehow liked this movie... How?
  • JunkWatcher
    You're not the only one. Call it a guilty pleasure, I guess.
  • Cyborcat
    avatar
    I can understand that.

    It doesn't have that kind of charm for me, tho--I think it's because I know too much about it, like the ridiculous amount of money that was blown on the budget and how badly WB and everyone else involved handled it when it came to promoting it. It just hurts my brain.
  • beatlenik  - Great so far!
    avatar
    I have not seen many of your videos but I can say that this one so far has already shown me to stay away from this movie. I liked the Tim Burton Batmans with Catwoman and the TV show had some good Catwomans as well. Will be seeing part two when it is up.

    As a fan of the comics i absolutely hated this movie. However i really enjoyed this video and am looking forward to part two
  • EvilAshTwin
    Ok, no joke, while watching this video, my cat randomly walked up to me and clawed me in the leg.

    I heard that the company had so little faith in this movie that they actually pulled ad spots off TV.

    So, you're doing a two-parter review - 1 hour that is, on the most offending Batman-related movie in history, and you are doing it really great and entertaining? And on top of everything, you bash Yu-Gi-Oh for it's way of insulting ancient Egypt, and you are defending Batman Returns; one of my all time favorite movies? AND you are planning on reviewing it one day?
    Okay, seriously - you truly are my new favorite reviewer on TGWTG! Keep it going - this is pure awesomeness! :D

    Greate review! So much details and backstory.
    And yeah, I saw this movie - it was definitely THAT bad. "Vidocq" from the same director was much better IMHO.
    PS Rarity, yay!

    If I can say one thing, Hallie Berry pulls off the short hair look really, really well, she's gorgeous in this movie.

    I actually kinda liked that screen where she's dodging bullets, while crawling around those pillars, kinda reminded me of the new Batman games for some reason.
  • Cyborcat
    avatar
    She does look great with short hair.

    I actually kind of like that shot too--when she's far away, it doesn't look overly CG-ish and it does kinda work. The close-up shots ruin it, tho.

    Well, thank you, Ms Natali... or may I call you Dena?

    It's been a whiles since you showed up on the front page here. I still fondly remember your AMAZING review of 'Jaws', my first exposure to your work. Already, this latest review is shaping up pretty cool.

    I don't have anything specific to offer this time around, except:
    Stay awesome, Dena Natali... CHANNEL Awesome!

    Gotta love those godawful special effects that age so poorly.

    Would have preferred the Burton version; Walken might have been in it, at least in flashbacks.

    Ah...That sounds like one of the scripts Burton turns over when he REALLY doesn't want to do a sequel, like "Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian."

    Haha, Rarity.

    Oh gawd, I hope Doug gets around to "The Bjork Show episode 3" this year.

    My Grampa went to school with Eartha Kitt :3

    Repay for ET? What was that about again?

    Oh that was it, then nevermind, YOU TOTALLY DESERVE THIS!!!

    It's really funny, sometimes a movie is really REALLY good and you can hear so many different kinds of praise for it, everyone loving it in their own way.

    With movies like this, they're so bad anyone can have their own way to HATE IT! I like that your cutting Halle Berry some slack. I'm no guy to just cheer an actress for her mere looks (I do it to the point that some people think I'm gay), and Halle Berry just seems so likeable to me regardless, plus... remember when she received an oscar and cried? Well, when she received a Razzie for Catwoman, she ACCTUALLY was there, accepted the award and parodied the time she was crying over the oscar! She has BALLS................. I just love saying that ^^

    Missed you Deena! Great to see more videos!
    Is it weird that I my first thought about the CrazyOldCatLady knowing everything was "The cat told her." Good lord that's so stupid yet I could totally see this movie going for that
    AAARGH

    Glad to see you again, Dena! :)

    When I first heard about this movie all I knew about it was that Halle Berry was Catwoman, and I have to be honest, I still think that was a superb cast choice. True, the rest of the movie is crap, but I could really see her in my head as Catwoman. One of those cases of great cast choice in a bad movie I guess...

    I haven't actually seen this movie; I used to own the video game for the PS2. While I may have enjoyed playing it when I was fifteen, in retrospect it was a very unimpressive video game.

    Though what I think is absolutely funny is how Patience was brought back to life with "magic cat breath". Why? Because with some cats that is so true. One of my cats, Greta, if she opens her mouth for any reason, and you're within two feet of her you will smell her bad breath. She's got breath that could wake the dead.
  • Jeff Jacobson
    If your cat's breath is that bad you should take her to the vet. It could be caused by rotting teeth.

    Oh my God. Gay friend is played by Ashur from tv's "Spartacus"! I've never seen (and never WILl see) this movie but that's quite a revelation. The guy's got range!

    A new Film Den? Wow, I've been waiting for a new one forever! So glad that a new episode's been released, I love them ^^

    First of all its good to see you back. Secondly this pice of shit deserves all bashing that you can deliver.
  • Lightice
    You can survive electrocution actually if the electricity doesn't flow through vital organs; it's theoretically possible for Selina to survive with few burns while Shreck incinerates if she's superhumanly lucky.

    The soundtrack for this movie sounds like they remixed a 70s porno.
  • Trencher
    After this review I went to ebay and amazon to get the soundtrack. I never watched to movie so I missed out on it. The Scandalous song is great too. Very good review I really like your style of reviews.

    Not that I'm a big tabloid reader or anything, but just before this flick came out, I caught an article about Halle Berry seen kissing some dude in a parking lot. People thought it was her new boytoy (I mean boyFRIEND! ... no, I meant -toy), but it was actually the director of "Catwoman"! I guess the kiss was her way of saying, "Thanks for making the shitty movie most people will remember me for!"

    Oh, how I loathe this movie. It manages to be so magnificently crappy and yet completely boring.

    "Stereotypical Annoying Gay Guy." I think that describes 82% of gay male characters that came from the '90s. And 97% of gay male characters written by crappy writers. (The other 3% are of the "Homophobic But Secretly Gay" character type.)
  • Jeff Jacobson
    I got free tickets to this movie (they came with a DVD). My brother and one of his friends went to the movie theater and tried to give these tickets away, but nobody wanted them.

    Glad you're back! :D
    Good review - I watched this movie months ago and I just really hated it. xD
  • litchick
    Although I must admit that I find this movie extremely entertaining (guilty pleasure) I really love your review. Can't wait for part 2!
