Independence and grace of cats has always attracted artists and filmmakers from here and so many dogs and cats in the movie. Together with the portal Film.ru we have collected for you a dozen of the best, in our opinion, baleen and Stripes in a big movie.
Puss in Boots - "Shrek 2 / Shrek 2" 2004
Puss in Boots - perhaps the most well-known character of the cat family, it is not surprising that about him filmed a lot of movies, especially animated. Among the vast array of cunning meows in a hat and with a sword, we chose the cat out of the franchise Shrek and his friends. In the original sounded (and to some extent played) Antonio Banderas cat appears in the second part of the animated series, and immediately pulls the blanket audience's attention. His signature trick pleading guilty look immediately became a meme, and Cat got the highest resolution on the own film.
Totoro - "My Neighbor Totoro / My Neighbor Totoro", 1988
Totoro - not really a cat, but do not like all the people in Japan. The hero of an amazing tale Hayao Miyazaki's "My Neighbor Totoro" - in fact a mixture of several animals, it has something of a raccoon, and something of an owl, but the easiest way to perceive the guardian spirit of the forest Totoro as a huge gray cat. Even by itself Totoro instantly became a favorite with the children on both sides of the Pacific - its image adorns umbrellas, school notebooks and linen - but it's still there are little helpers. This is where so Milota Milota.
Catwoman - "Batman Returns / Batman Returns", 1992
Perhaps only such a specific storyteller Tim Burton could have as much sex and charm to give the heroine a sequel of the adventures of Batman. Inexplicably shy secretary Selina Kyle turned to Catwoman, a dangerous villain, acting only in its sole discretion, as befits a recalcitrant animal. In Michelle Pfeiffer's career has been a lot of very frank and challenging roles, but in "Batman Returns," she surpassed herself - a great and attractive. Pfeiffer tried to repeat the success, but to no avail - not Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway or do not go to any comparison with a conventional manner.
Garfield - "Garfield / Garfield", 2004
If the pages of comic books can move every supegeroyam and supervillains, then why not do the same superkotu? Garfield - the most popular cartoon character that appeared in 1978, has long been a favorite of several generations, so its appearance on the big screen was a matter of time. While it came in 2004, when Peter Hewitt is a comedy, which combines animation, computer graphics and game live actors. Superuspeshnoy, especially with the critical point of view, the picture is difficult to call, but it turned out Garfield thereby lazy kotyaroy whose loved readers. So if anyone blame, there is no cat.
The cat - "Cat's Eye / Cat's Eye", 1985
cats, with their long-standing suspicion of having links with the evil force, destined to live in horror movies. And indeed, a rare horror film dispenses with modest participation meows a ball of wool, which, if anything, and can frighten and reassure. Recall, "Pet Sematary" - the cat had to stay in it and everyone's favorite, and mortal danger. But we decided to turn his attention to another screen version of Stephen King's horror stories. The "cat's eye" cat is an observer rather than a direct participant, but if not for his keen sight, hidden from us to many amazing, frightening things.
The Cat in the Hat - "cat / The Cat in the Hat", 2003
Rare author can boast of so many successful film adaptations of his works, how much to eat them from Dr. Seuss. The Lorax, Horton and the Grinch - heroes of films that still have millions in the audience every time they are shown on TV. But there is in the filmography of Susan and apparent failure - the most popular of his character, The Cat in the Hat, unexpectedly failed at the box office in the film, where the cat costume for himself tried Mike Myers. I must say that Myers has long walked along the edge, at the risk of falling into the abyss of cash gaps. It's a shame only that it happened precisely on the movie about gay naughty Coté.
Hippo - "The Master and Margarita" 1994
How do in our top without the most famous Russian and Soviet cat - scoundrel named Behemoth, henchman Voland, mischievous and philosopher, wielded in Moscow almost a hundred years ago in the pages of Mikhail Bulgakov's novel "Master and Margarita". About the film adaptation of a complex product can write a separate story, we also turn to what has already been able to show the audience. Directed by Yuri Kara, find their way to the viewer for long 17 years, the role played Behemoth Viktor Pavlov, and it was much more organic than the cartoon variations in other film adaptations. It's not that at all, "Oh!", But not "Oh-oh-oh."
Matthew - "New Adventures of Masha and Viti" 1975
The tremendous success that hit Mikhail Boyarsky after starring in telepostanovke three Musketeers, demanded of him more and more number of works on display - in all kinds of genres and audience was ready to "consume" Boyarsky without a break for sleep. Apart from dozens of major works on TV, in film and theater popularly beloved d'Artagnan and starred in the children's tapes, for example, in the musical fairy tale "The New Adventures of Masha and Viti" actor played cat Matthew, squad leader of evil spirits pretending ensemble "Wild Guitar" . An exceptional singer, Boyarsky played in the film a few songs that have made Matthew the people's favorite, despite the fact that this character is a villain.
Good Cat - "Lucky Number Slevin / Lucky Number Slevin", 2006
Obviously, you need to make something completely unimaginable to you in the criminal world called the Good Cat. Paul McGuigan character thriller "Lucky Number Slevin", played by Bruce Willis, the special kindness is no different, and to be called "Cat", he is not shaggy, but does it matter? The main thing - Willis is not yet lost its former shape and its devilish charm. Cunning, calculating killer working at all, but no one belongs, - such is the cat in the criminal world. Just as in life.
Jones - "Alien / Alien", 1979
The Cat in the space? Why not. Unless someone can disable the cat walk wherever he wants?
