In Good Company
It’s that movie you’ve seen that preview for with Topher Grace from That 70’s Show, Dennis Quaid, and Scarlett Johanssen (er.. maybe I’ll figure out how to respell that) – the one you thought looked like it might be okay, but maybe you’d wait for DVD, and everyone knows that January movies aren’t any good anyway. Well, it is a good movie, and it is worth seeing in the theaters, but it will also be good on DVD. It’s about giving life meaning and what the growth culture in corporate America is like on the inside, and those are both worthy topics well handled. That, and it’s funny, and well acted.

Elektra
This movie joins The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The Chronicles of Riddick, and The Hulk as movies universally panned that I really enjoyed. The special effects were great (as they were in the others). The plot was weak (though not a real hinderance to the story), and everyone seemed pretty convinced they were who they were supposed to be. I don’t know if I can recommend it, since nobody seems to like those other movies, either, but I liked it! Especially that tattoo guy – the effects are as good in the movie as they were in the commercials.
