i saw a double feature yesterday: house of flying daggers and elektra

house of flying daggers is a great movie - beautiful/excellent/interesting - can't have enough superlatives...roger ebert's review, is dead on

elektra is exactly what one would expect of a comic book movie with jennifer garner. i have seen a lot of negative reviews for elektra and am a bit puzzled. reviews for movies like this are almost besides the point. if you've seen the ads and think you'll like it, chances are you will and vice versa. i am amazed how some of these comic book movies get good reviews and some bad. for me, they are all more or less the same, and when i'm in the mood for them, they fit the bill. kind of like a frozen cheese pizza, not haute cuisine, to be sure, but sometimes it's what you want...

So I should see Flying Daggers instead of Ray? I mean if I have to choose one?

And I'm sorry, but for me, a frozen pizza never fits the bill. Now a McDonald's hamburger...that's a different story.

I really liked Daredevil, but it sounds like Elektra is another Catwoman. I hate movies where they get the female lead in tight leather just for the guys, and there's no real plot. I may wait until Elektra comes out on DVD and watch it then.

I saw Elektra last night and it really wasn't bad at all. It messes with the character origin as one would expect, but it works as a standalone. And it's not anywhere close to the ickyness of Catwoman.

Okay, thanks. Glad it's not that bad.
