    * The documentary on disc 2 tracing the history of the character through the anecdotes of most of the important writers and artists is fascinating, and very thorough. It's a microcosmic history of modern comics, and the best documentary I've ever seen about the comic book industry.

    * All kinds of behind-the-scenes footage of Jenny Garner swinging those sai blades around.

    * Somehow the digital fx look slightly more convincing on a small screen than they did on a big screen.

    * Cheesy Evanescence video--forever digitally enshrined in your collection.

    Hrm. Two Ben Affleck movies on "Worst Movie Ever" list.

    I haven't seen Gigli, but I'm only going by what I've seen. Daredevil was god awful.

    Okay, so the movie wasn't "Batman" or "X-Men" or "Spider-Man" or "Superman", but it was better than "Hulk", and a shade above "The Flash" (starring Mark Hamill!).

    Affleck was also in "Pearl Harbor", "Armageddon", "Forces of Nature", "Bounce", and "Phantoms". But a writing Oscar and a tradition of self-lampooning in Kevin Smith flicks makes up for it all.

    That said, I own all five films mentioned in the last paragraph. (Hangs head in shame) Along with "Reindeer Games".

    I like the Daredevil DVD ads they're running in Marvel & DC books the past few months--tight, nicely focused shot of Jennifer Garner in leather with the headline "Buy the DVD and STARE ALL YOU WANT". If they don't have the fanboy psyche nailed.......
