well i saw it and i must say i was blown away. it was visually awesome and the acting was alright. michael madsen kind of sucked though. my dad who has never read a sin city comic thought that it was too much. he said all the killing was basically unessecary. i thought it was kind of too much too see of sin city in one viewing but i loved it. did anyone else think when hartigan was hung they should have started rolling the credits and then cut back to him? that would have rocked!

5/5

I like the movie overall but thought the arc of That Yellow Bastard was incredibly stupid. I have never read that Sin City comic and I guess i didn't miss much.

I though The Big Fat Kill comic was lame and wasn't thrilled with the movie version either.

I enjoyed Marv's story quite a bit though.

I also though Elijah Wood made a great 'Kevin'. What a creepy little dude Elijah is! :p

A rather good transition from comic to movie even though I didn't like two of the stories.

Right.

I got that.

You saw the film with your dad and I was simply asking if your mother waited in the car while you boys were in the theater.

Maybe she went to the bar for a few boilermakers to wile away the time?

I had tears in my eyes from the moment on the pier when skinny little nancy curled up in hartigan's lap pretty much through the end of the movie. THere was no way this movie was going to disapoint me, my boy frank, my boy rodriguez... I went in expecting to love it & suprise suprise, I'm going to se it again tomorrow night.

I think a lot of america is going to be with your dad though, I've thought it ever since I heard who was in the movie. All kind of big stars & a black & white brutal fucking movie with wall to wall naration.... Joe walmart isn't expecting that in a Bruce willis/jessica alba movie.

I was hoping they'd roll credits while hartigan was hanging there too, like in the comic but I checked out the trade at the store last month & they do it the same as the movie in there, just a black page.

I'm really fucking happy about how good the movie was. THe stuff i was concerned about (the yellow bastard & deltoro's makeup looking wierd) totally worked for me in motion way better than in the stills we've been seeing forever.

I thought madsen was pretty weak in the begining too (he was better by the end) and sometimes the score got weak but I loved the score outsidt the barn in that yellow bastard...

I fucking loved this movie, did i mention that.

I can't wait for the dvd with the deleted scenes, I so wanted to see the scene with marv & wendy sleeping in the same room & you see marv get up through the window blinds & try to crawl in bed with her "go back to your couch marv"...

who cares?

That Yellow Bastard is my favorite story in the comics, but for some reason didn't work in the movie. Overall, I thought it was amazing. I hope this opens the door for another movie.

i liked it. i thought it looked wonderful, most of the time. but some of it came off as absurd, while the same stuff in the comic wass much more human and believable.
lots of over-writing and monologues. it was fun, though

i don't know why, but this just makes me laugh. getting your dad to buy you mature comics like its beer. did you have to get a permission slip signed to see constantine too? :p

but i gotta say, i loved the movie so fucking much. the only things i had a problem with were michael madsen at the beginning, and the guy with the arrow through his chest, and the way marv delivered the "that all you got, pansies?" line. i always thought that line should be creepier than it was funny, but it was played for laughs in the movie. but other than that, amazing movie. it will really please the tarentino crowd.

i agree... i think the yellow bastard story should have been treated a bit more seriously, less absurd, but i still loved it...

i just got back from seeing it.
it was awesome.

i jsut have some quick questions: who exactly is josh hartnett? i never read his character before. what stories is he from?

but the whole movie. man, i thought it was awesome. i think the crowd liked it to, but not all of them were as enthralled as i.
i think some people wont get passed the diolauge and declare it cheesy even though it totally worked for me.

also, one major gripe.
in the beginning it says "based on the GRAPHIC NOVELS by frank miller". for someone who is all about not acting like comics are a lower artistic form, it just struck me as odd that they made a point of saying graphic novel instead of comic books. i read it all in issue form and not in trades. it just struck me as odd that people use graphic novel instead of syaing comic books. does anyone know what i am saying there? or what i am trying to say?

he's from the story "The Customer is Always Right" from the "Babe Wore Red" short stories collection...

i dont know about the scene at the end when he appears to kill Becky... i dont know if that was in any comics...

That would have rocked, but the audience already believed he was dead once.

still, it would have been very nice...

you'd have seen some people standing up, or whatever... and then... "NO! keep your neck stiff"

People can now purchase the Graphic Novels at their favorite book store, but not the single issues. I figure it was telling them what to ask for.

I have no problem with it.

Movie Of The Year. Seriously, I can't seen anything on the horizon that's going to be this original and entertaining. Mary (who reads no comics) liked it, but not as much as I did.

We saw some exceptionally foul previews. Who was asking for an Amityville Horror re-make? Not I...

i was thinking how Bruce Willis was too young for the role of Hartigan...but it was kool anyways.

And i thought Gail aka Rosario Dawson looked like a young Vanessa del rio :drool:
