By Marc Horne Pfeiffer and Berry just not up to scratch, says feisty Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson IT'S a Hollywood cat fight. Scottish rocker-turned-actress Shirley Manson has sent the fur flying in Tinseltown by claiming that she is the ideal person to play Batman's feisty feline adversary.

By Gieson Cacho Although his name is on the marquee, Batman has never been the reason we watch the films. When it comes to the Caped Crusader, it's the villains who are the real stars. I can tell you who played the Jokers (Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson), the Riddler (Jim Carrey) and Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer). But when it comes the actors who fought crime, I couldn't care less. That's because the villains are always more compelling, and the actors who play them seem to have more fun....

A commenter to the Motor Trend forums said: "Product placement is alive and well in Hollywood, but worry not, very few will really notice it in the new Batman movie, unlike other recent movies. In fact, the MKS has about 2 sec of screen time. ... Makes you wonder why they bothered." If you look closely, it's the car...

By Jane Holahan OK, I finally got around to seeing "The Dark Knight," the biggest movie hit of the summer. At $500 million and counting, it's poised to become the biggest movie of all time. The critics loved it. Me? I'm still confused. Hey, I was entertained. How can you not respond to yet another explosion or car chase? I thought the performances were solid and Heath Ledger was extraordinary as The Joker, who wants to turn Gotham City into an anarchist's dreamland. It was a...
