Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room *** (dvd) : It was an okay documentary about an incredibly grotesque subject - the overarching greed of the "smartest guys". The book I read (not this one) was better, and I thought the visuals were too flashy for the story it was trying to tell.

Out of Sight (1998) *** (cable) : Steven Soderbergh does Elmore Leonard with some very good looking actors. Fun movie, very light but both Clooney and Lopez pulled off their rolls with aplomb.
King Kong (2005) *** (dvd) : Solid if overlong adaptation of the classic. If I did half stars, this would go to 3 1/2. It was good, Jack Black was great and the special effects marvelous.
