She gets shot four times at point blank range by Max at the end, and counts down her lives as he does it. I guess you could argue he didn't hit any vital organs, but then she proceeds to kill Max with an electric current, which she was attached to as well. Max is burned to a crisp, and yet she survives.

As for the "cat licking" scene, Burton didn't just throw it in there because it looked cool. He obviously wanted to convey that those cats had a part in her transformation. I suppose you could argue she wasn't actually dead, but it doesn't make it any less dumb that she was reborn as Catwoman, from a bunch of alley cats licking and biting her.

I know movies like this dont really garner Oscar noms for acting. But come on..these movies all have a terrific cast. If McKellen was able to pull a nom out in Fellowship...Astin had the material and scenes to do the same. He was nabbing various noms from many critic award circles and a few important critic circles, but somehow still got overlooked from the Globes, SAG , and Academy. More great special effects..wonderful battles... great music score...and top notch performances all around. The cast is superb! Great art direction,great directing, wonderful screenplay, and a gorgeous and touching song by Annie Lenox("Into The West") to end the movie. YAY for the movie making a total sweep at the 2004 Oscars...winning all 11 of their categories including Best Picture. Very well deserved!!

10/10

The Hunger Games - 9/10

Would have scored higher if Lenny Kravitz wasn't in it and there would have been more blood. Otherwise, damn good movie. Stanley Tucci was great. Can't wait for the next installment.

Lockout 4/10

Another wasted hour-and-a-half. All the worse 'cause the film had a few good things going for it and managed to fumble them all into the mud.

V/H/S.

Holy shit, what a disappointment.

After seeing all the glowing reviews here I was really looking forward to it. Sure, it kept me somewhat entertained, but nothing made sense. No explanation to anything...nada.

All the scary build-ups just fell flat and never reached a satisfying climax.

Hype, hype, hype...blaaaah.

5/10.

Yeah, I need to learn to sit down and watch movies at home, not while on 'puter or whateva. Although my interruptions were phone calls, and I let the movie play 'cause it was a long one and I didn't feel like staying up late just to keep watching it.

I must admit that the 'twist' at the end intrigued me a bunch. I absolutely hated the very, very end though. I thought that was pretty dumb and contrived.
