Coincidence of the Day

After GDT gave a thumbs up to the film In Good Company on our message boards, Roger Ebert gave a nod to Hellboy in his review of the film.

Corporations have replaced Nazis as the politically correct villains of the age — and just in time, because it was getting increasingly difficult to produce Nazis who survived into the 21st century (“Hellboy” had to use a portal in time). “The Manchurian Candidate” used a corporation instead of the Chinese communists, and thrillers like “Resident Evil” give us corporations whose recklessness turns the population into zombies. “In Good Company” is a rare species: a feel-good movie about big business. It’s about a corporate culture that tries to be evil and fails.
