Top 5 Batman Villans (TV and Movies)
1.) Joker (Cesar Romero)
2.) The Riddler (Frank Gorshin)
3.) Catwoman (Toss-up, Eartha Kitt or Michelle Pfiffer)
4.) The Penguin (Burgess Meredith)
5.) Joker (Jack Nicholson)

I respectfully submit that there should be a villain from the animated series on there, which was the best animated comic book show of all time (which I used to watch everyday when I was 8 or so). I would probably go with Two Face from the series.

Okay, how exactly do you leave Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones) off the list?

Continuing the Catwoman theme...

Movies featuring tough women

1) Kill Bill
2) Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
3) Thelma & Louise
4) Tomb Raider
5) Charlie's Angels

Korean movies featuring strong women (in reference to Slim + Thomas for double the points)

1) Too beautiful to lie
2) Foul king
3) Sympathy for lady vengeance
4) My sassy girl
5) Arahan

Top five Kevin Spacey films:

1) LA Confidential
2) Superman Returns
3) American Beauty
4) Glengarry Glen Ross
5) The Usual Suspects

Ok, honestly, you thought SUPERMAN FRIGGIN RETURNS was better than Glengarry/ and The Usual Suspects?

I mean, I like it ok, I thought it was somewhat unfairly criticized (especially for plot inconsistencies - as if other Superman movies had none )

BUT BETTER? Um. I'm going to call foul on that.

Snatch only counts as "worst title" when paired as a drive-in double feature with Dick. I remember working at the movie theater when that came out, and the matinee show, every day would be a parade of unsavory and unintentional jokes waiting to happen. "Two senior citizens for 'Dick', please" A pregnant lady walks up to the window alone. Her movie isn't even half over with yet. She can't stay because the "baby is restless" (in her belly, I assume) and is irritating her. Guess what? She needs a "Dick refund".

Okay, fair calls both... on Superman Returns, not a better movie (my bad there) but I thought KS wore his role better, or stood out more from the rest of the cast (which was easy to do in Superman Returns). Plus, being a man with hair impairment these days, I thought it was bold of him to shave his head for the role.

The women, too many better ones to mention, but my original theme was bad women falling flat at the box office (Catwoman, Charlies Angels 2, Elektra) the list ran short and I was at work and time was limited, blah, blah, blah.

Police officer? Don't see much of those costumes around here...

Costumes for women that should require a weight limit (or at least some common sense):

1) Nurse Nancy
2) Emma Peel
3) Daisy Duke
4) Pirate
5) Chainmail bikini
