She built on this success with appearances in the biopic The Aviator (2004) and the comedy Click (2006).

  1. I have seen 13 of the movies that you showed posters for....I actually have not seen Pearl Harbor.....I have seen parts and it did not impress me. My favorite movies of hers would be Serendipity, the 2nd Underworld movie and Click....I think her part in Contraband was completely forgettable. Nice addition.

  2. You've seen more of Kate's films than I have Bruce. I saw Pearl Harbor at the cinema and own the directors cut on DVD, worth it for the 40 minute raid sequence. The Underworld series was gory fun and a good antidote to the Twilight series. Van Helsing is a guilty pleasure. Thanks for commenting.
