Jennifer Garner should have used an alias instead of putting her name on this breathlessly boring spinoff of Daredevil, the 2003 Marvel Comics misfire in which she co-starred with her new honey, Ben Affleck. Garner is back (Affleck isn't) doing martial-arts kicks as Elektra, this time dressed in skimpy S&M Madonna rejects. The hottie lady in red has returned from the dead in the form of a cranky, listless contract killer redeemed by the love of the little girl (Kirsten Prout) she saves from — oh, who the hell cares?

    “Stillness Is the Move”

    Dirty Projectors | 2009

    A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
