words and pictures
I’m going to use this week’s Media Monday to wash the disagreeable presence of Elektra out of the collective consciousness. Jennifer Garner is a talented actress (and a hottie), but really, the movie is a waste of celluloid.

So I present the Word & Pictures Museum’s virtual exhibition of Elektra: Assassin. Even though it covers just the first issue/chapter of the entire book, it’s enough of a taste to show that you’re better off spending your time and money on this, instead of a movie ticket.

  1. I strongly second the motion. “Elektra: Assassin” is a wonder to behold, to read, to savor…a MUCH better investment of time, energy, and money than the unfortunate movie (or the equally sad movie, “Daredevil”, that it spun out of.)

  2. Speaking of comics, what think you of Constantine coming to the big screen? I think it looks good, but not completely true to the comic?

  3. I never read much of Hellblazer/Constantine, so I don’t have that perspective on it. (I think my brother might have read it, so I guess I could ask him.)

    But aside from that, the movie has a built-in disadvantage for me. I simply can’t take Keanu Reeves seriously, regardless of the role or film. While viewing The Matrix, I kept making so many “bogus, dude” wisecracks that it was impossible for me to sit through the thing.

    It’s unfair, I know. But that’s what comes of watching “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” about 50 times. It’s my cross to bear.
