    Harry has his review up:

    http://www.aint-it-cool-news.com/display.cgi?id=18006

    Basically saying it isn't the worst movie in the world, but only rises to the level of mediocre. Course, he still seems to be in love with Halle, while I've tired of her some time ago.

    All this hatred for this movie makes me giggle a little bit. I dunno. For me, the first time I saw that costume and that foreign trailer I had bad vibes.

    Oh man, I can't wait to see this tomorrow. I love being able to see a movie that's supposed to be serious and then end up joking about it for weeks. I know this movie's gonna be so much kitty litter but I need something to laugh at...plus I get in free since I work at a theater so it's not like I'm supporting Warner for making this ridiculous ploy to capitalize on us comic fans.

    I'll check in with my review (for those who care) tomorrow after I see it.

    Yes, but the most important question is was the teaser for Batman Begins in front of it?

    I was just reading the CNN.com review of Catwoman, which was expectedly disparaging, but was surprised to see the film was directed by the French director Pitof. Too bad his Hollywood debut will probably kill his career before it even begins; his VIDOCQ was a fantastic piece of cinema, arguably a case of style over substance, but in no way an indication he should have been thrown a superhero movie as his American debut. Sorry if this is already discussed in this lengthy thread, but I just thought I'd mention it.

    Well, at previews (at least more and more often lately) you don't get many trailers. All we got was an "Exorcist: The Beginning" trailer (a bit early but it looks like it might be good). Who knows about the theatrical run. I hope not because I don't want to pay $8 to see a trailer and I'm sure as hell not going to see "Catwoman" again.

    From Academy Award-winning actress just one year ago, to this. Oh, the humanity...


    Please, Warner, get that Wonder Woman movie into production soon--and make it good?

    People are surprised that it sucks! Why? The moment I heard "Pitof is directing" few months ago, I knew it’s going to suck! Of course that it sucks! Pitof is no director. He has no talent in directing. He is a famous French Visual Effects Supervisor. It’s like Dennis Muren directing a movie. People should do what they are good at and for the record, I thought his first attempt (VIDOCQ) was also horrible. Hated it!........Now I feel better! [​IMG]

    Ebert's review is up, here's his closing line on Pitof...

    The director, whose name is Pitof, was probably issued with two names at birth and would be wise to use the other one on his next project.

    Wow, this movie is sure taking a beating... 13% fresh att Rotten Tomatoes right now, with 70 reviews counted!

    It didn't look THAT bad to me, but this is a pretty overwhelming consensus!

    How much did they spend on this piece of - well, I won't pass judgement until I see it on TV... but I am curious how much was spent.

    I think Pitof translated into English means McG. [​IMG]

    The practically universal drubbing this film is getting is rather interesting to me. Bad films usually get defended by some people on some level, even if only for some technical or goofy/fun/silly aspect (like with Van Helsing). But not this one, apparently.

    Just for information, Pitof is well respected within the Visual Effects community (as a VFX supervisor) and his work for Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s City of Lost Children made him known and "famous" in the US.
