The Skeleton Key

Typical voodoo scary movie. More suspense than anything, no real terror. More a mind trip for peole spooked by voodoo magic. In the end, lackluster and ho hum.

Batman Begins

Slow moving, lots of backstory and character development even though the cut scenes short to fit everything in. Not too much focus on the toys (yes!). That girl from dawson's creek (oh crap) actually believable as an anti-vengence lawyer geek. Still not the best fit. Only bad thing; stupid Spiderman-esque "now comes the romance!" ending. Where'd that come from? At least he wasn't doing it all for her. I hope not, especially since he dumps every girl for a different one in each sequel. All in all, not too much to complain about on this.

Suspenseful, tricky, twisty. Not the best twisty plot, but pretty good first time around. Very moody, great characters. John Cusack in a not "oh my heart is broken" role. Awesome. Ray Liotta, as a crooked yelling guy. Typical. Pretty much good actors all around.
