We’re Talking About Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns Again (Still?)

I’m going to my safe place today (Michelle Pfeiffer’s scenes in Batman Returns) and I’m wondering something: Do you think Selina actually died from that fall in the movie? Or do you think that she woke up, walked back into her apartment, and realized that she’s Michelle fucking Pfeiffer and she deserves better than cat sweatshirts and a couch filled with stuffed animals? Because all of her deaths (“You killed me, Batman killed me, the Penguin killed me”) didn’t really involve much in the way of reviving. She fell through awnings, landed in kitty litter, and then on top of the plants in the greenhouse. So maybe she’s now just a slightly deranged woman who has had it with the assholes of Gotham and takes her revenge accordingly? Until she falls in love with Bruce Wayne! But their love is not to be! A kiss can be even deadlier, if you mean it.

Do you think I could just rewatch the whole movie at my desk?

    Batman Returns is so much fun, playful and inventive, and so beautiful to look at.
    I watch it every year at Christmas, it’sone of my favourite movies of all time. And, it goes without saying, Michelle Pfeiffer gives one of the best screen performances in motion picture history as Catwoman.
    The transformation scenes absolutely rely on Pfeiffer to really sell them…and she does…and NO DISCOUNT! I remember her telling James Lipton how it was pure hell to get into that getup!

    Some of my favorite lines:
    “Oh, please. I wouldn’t touch you to scratch you.”
    “It’s gonna be a hot time on the cold town tonight.”
    “You’re overpaid. Hit the road!”
    “Because he is Batman, you moron!”
