Our thinking was logical. We could go see a supposedly good movie, but then it could turn out to suck, and that would be disappointing. Or we could see a movie we *knew* was bad, and hey, there's nothing lost either way with that one.

This is how Operative X and I ended up at Elektra.

Man, even a heapin' helping of ninja couldn't save this movie.

On the other hand, Terence Stamp is doing a pretty good McDowell impersonation these days.

hee. and there's ample evidence that jennifer garner rocks pretty much any wig/outfit combination, but what was up with the ill-fitting strappy red satin.. bustier? tubetop? whatever, which just made the whole theatre bounce and say, "hee!"

"[Elektra's] most striking image is that of star Jennifer Garner squeezed into a red bustier and high-heeled combat boots, looking like the world's deadliest hooker. And though she's proven herself a remarkably adaptive actress elsewhere, Garner looks uneasy in the part, in or out of her superheroine costume. The role needs a steely, inhuman reserve, and Garner's innate likeability works against her. Even when she's taking aim with a bow and arrow, she looks like she might be thinking about kittens."

I shoudl also note the red outfit is straight from the comic books. Not that I'm defending it, or a purist or anything. But still.

well, sure. but couldn't they have fitted it to her properly, and made it out of pleather or something?

Not even I could really defend that movie.

Wow if ninjas can't save something then nothing can. I'd like to state for the record that I think Jennifer Garner has always struck me as kinda wooden and vaguely manish. So um..yeah.
