    ½

    Hysterically bad in every way possible, Catwoman is a whirlwind of poorly made choices. First and definitely foremost: the awful spinning and constantly moving camera. This makes you 1. Dizzy, 2. Dumb and 3. Distracted. I just have to question why it was filmed like this. It was like watching an endless music video that never stopped. I absolutely despised the camerawork and wish it could be forgotten. Then we have the script which had really lame jokes and poor…

    ★★★★★

    Still one of the best films I have ever seen. Each character is so well done, from the script, to the expressions, to the mannerisms, to the actors. The camera work was fantastic, and the use of videotapes was so perfect here. They were applied very well for 1989. McDowell is by far my favorite here but watching it again and seeing little nuances of everyone was such a joy. For a film to be this deep about personalities and…
