Hancock

We saw Hancock today with Scott & Jene. It's a pretty good little movie -- in fact, I'd probably say it's the best original (not based on a comic book or some other source) super-hero movie made (but I'm probably forgetting some obvious example that I really like). I'm not saying it's great, but it's fun and has some good action sequences and an unusual protagonist.

I hadn't heard all the buzz about the twist in the middle, so I was completely unprepared -- but Beth guessed it! I was wondering a little why Charlize Theron had taken such a minor role...

As long as I'm writing about movies, Beth and I saw WALL-E on Wednesday night. Now, there's a great movie! All the attention to detail and the heart and the cuteness and the message and the humor and on and on... It's not perfect (the ending is a little pat), but you really should see this movie! Wow!
