Anyone who laments the fact that all the recent comic book movies are more like comic books than movies should rewatch Batman Returns, starring Michael Keaton as Batman, Danny DeVito as The Penguin, and the indominable Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman. It could possibly be the best-acted action movie of all time.
Tomorrow is Ms. Pfeiffer’s birthday, so I’m joining many other bloggers in celebrating a truly “fierce” actress. Tyra Banks has nothing on her.
After the jump: Watch a montage of all the best Catwoman moments from Batman Returns set to the song “Face to Face” by Siouxsie and the Banshees. It might make you cry.
