In the tradition of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hero, and The Grandmaster, The Assassin is a martial arts movie recalibrated as an exquisite work of art. It is the Tang Dynasty: 10-year-old Nie Yinniang is abducted by a nun who initiates her into the martial arts. One day, she is sent back by her mistress to the land of her birth, with orders to kill the man to whom she was promised. "Heart-stoppingly beautiful." Robbie Colin, Daily Telegraph

A furrball of a comic book movie, Catwoman was originally mooted as a spinoff for Michelle Pfeiffer after 1993’s Batman Returns. A decade, several actresses, and 28 screenwriters later, Catwoman emerged as an entirely new conception, a meek graphic designer, Patience Phillips, working at a large cosmetics company run by Lambert Wilson and Sharon Stone. Their latest product line is anti-aging cream - yep, that’s what this movie is about. As Den of Geek put it, this is a "weird mish-mash of The Crow and The Devil Wears Prada", with PG-13 friendly leather s/m trimmings. Miaow!
