Well, I wasn't really tagged, I just wandered to D-Place, liked what I read, and decided to post my responses here. I just love these lists:

It's not that Halle Berry can't act - she just gets a lot of lousy roles - although I haven't seen it (and don't want to)I can't imagine anyone being able to do a good job in "Catwoman" or X men (or whatever it's called)'s very difficult for a black actress to get meaningful roles in Hollywood -from what I remember, I didn't see anything lacking in her performance in "Losing Isaiah."

OK... every role she gets is lousy OR she makes every role she gets lousy (with her acting).

Let's see:
* Jungle Fever - acting like a junkie, thankfully, her boy toy, Wesley Snipes carried the movie
* The Flintstones - part of a stone age family
* Losing Isaiah - ok, it was a decent movie
* The Rich Man's Wife - lousy role
* B*A*P*S - lousy movie. lousy role. lousy acting.
* Bulworth - yeah, right!
* Introducing Dorothy Dandridge - another forgettable performance
* Queen: The Story of an American Family - oh, how could we forget?
* Their Eyes Were Watching God - I guess this was another lousy role?
* Swordfish - well, we did get to see her boobs in this one
* Monster's Ball - Oscar material?
* Gothika - another lousy role?
* Catwoman - her worst effort, Halle Berry accepted her Razzie Award in person, and in her acceptance speech she said, "First of all, I want to thank Warner Brothers. Thank you for putting me in this piece of 'shit', God-awful movie..."

Would you go see any of those movies because of Halle Berry? She's pretty... but it ends there!

"Bulworth" was fine, but it had nothing to do with Halle Berry's contibutions. Warren Beatty, rightfully, carried the entire movie, and everyone else in it were all sublpots that got in the way. Except for maybe Don Cheadle--who just steals scenes every time I see him.

Having said that...upon further review, you got a point on a lot of those movies you listed. To be frank, I don't get the appeal of Berry--never really did, I suppose. I remember the runup to "Catwoman", and I remember saying, "They already made this movie. It's called Batman Returns, and all they did was eliminate Batman and the Penguin. What's the point?"

Funny, funny stuff.

The Madonna tag was hilarious.
