34. Catwoman

It's no secret that Catwoman's reputation precedes it. It was a movie that tried unique and original adaptations of comic book characters long before it was the cool thing to do, but it didn't exactly work out in its favor. The Halle Berry-led feature premiered in movie theaters in 2004 to a highly negative reception and it is now widely regarded as one of the worst movies ever made.

In all fairness to Catwoman, it's really not that bad. Half of the time it doesn't know what kind of movie it wants to be, and the other half of the time it's just really campy; but once you get used to the fact that it's not a masterpiece, you might actually have a fun time with it. Objectively, it's probably not good, but in terms of entertainment, it's a 10 from me.

33. Supergirl

The Girl of Steel made her cinematic debut in 1984's all-too easily forgotten Supergirl. A spinoff of the Christopher Reeve-led Superman film series, it starred Helen Slater as the titular heroine in what was the first ever female-led DC superhero movie. It's not a well-known fact because the movie has essentially been lost to history because of its poor critical and commercial performance.

Truthfully, Supergirl lacks the strength of writing that made the earlier Superman movies a success but there is a charm in there that more people should be willing to acknowledge. Sure, it had a lot of issues, but Helen Slater's endearing performance and the light-hearted nature of the movie make it a nice watch nonetheless. And it's worth it alone to see Faye Dunaway camp it up with everything she has.

Supergirl is corny, cheesy, and it was a bit dated even for its time, but it's full of heart, nostalgic charm, and it certainly wasn't the worst entry in the original Superman franchise. History should have been kinder to it.
