Sin City...

I haven't been looking forward to a movie this much since Kill Bill 2, or before that, Matrix 2, or before that... I don't remember. Anyhow, I'm really looking forward to Sin City. Apparently Robert Rodriguez teamed up with the writer of the Sin City comic book to deliver a movie that truly resembles the look of the comic. Certain comic book movies have kept some of the feel of a comic book before, and have ad varying success (The Hulk), but none have really gotten the actual look, on screen, of the drawings, on paper, of a comic book. I hate this because I wish I could have been the one to think of and deliver this movie. Then again, I wouldn't have been able to pull together such a great cast. I have always respected Robert Rodriguez, even if his movies weren't great... mostly because of where he came from and how he got where he is. That and the fact that he really is amazingly talented, writing, directing, shooting, editing and scoring some of his films all himself. That takes a lot of talent and probably a lot of Red Bull. But for him to be able to bring together all of that Hollywood talent (and I don't want to get flak for that statement, it's not an oxymoron) is pretty good.

I really hope it doesn't disappoint me (like Matrix II and III).
