Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow

That Jude Law….

But I digress.

Just finished Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow. Gorgeous flick, reminiscent of Iron Giant in style and Michael Chabon’s Kavalier and Clay as well. Very much a comic book brought to life. The kids loved it, especially Angelina Jolie’s character, Frankie, who was cool, confident and tough, in contrast to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Polly (the reporter) with her high heels and only the barest of ethics. They liked Dex, the sidekick, too, because he was smart and dependable.

They have good taste in people, at least in movies. I like seeing which characters they admire and why.
