Yeah, I'll definitely be seeing it tomorrow evening... I'm not a Robert Rodriguez fan (Spy Kids? gak!), but I do like Frank Miller, and the movie seems like a good "thought experiment" (i.e., "can we do this?") in the same vein as Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (both of which I really liked).

And guest director Quintin Tarantino!!! You know this movie is going to be awesome. The dialogue is almost word for word from the comics!

not really familiar with the comics, but I am really pumped about the movie, based on the trailers and ads I've seen for it, and also who is in it. I cannot wait :D

I got to see a sneak preview of it Wednesday night. Wow! It totally rocks. I like the Marv character. By far the most bad-azz character to ever grace the silver screen. Robert Rodriguez is my favorite director and I must say, he has definately risen the bar. Not a single weakness in the movie in my opinion.

I take that back, kinda. I have doubts as to wether it is main-stream enough to make the oodles and oodles of money it deserves. Its made of three different stories (shorts almost) that dont really have anything to do with each other except for the fact that they all take place in Sin City. They are interwoven somewhat in that there are characters from one story in another story, but not having to do with the same story line (hope that made sense).

BEST RODRIGUEZ MOVIE EVER! You must see it.

Oh. And usually when I hear people talk of how violent a movie is, I dont really pay any attention. But ummm, Sin City is crazy, wacky violent (so friggen sweet). It wallows in its violence. Fortunately, its a very stylized violence. For instance, when a character get his hand blown off, he bleeds white.

Fair amount of nudity, too. Although, not sensual nudity. Nudity as in half naked women walking around with guns. But I digress...

Ahhhh. Beautiful combination. :D

Anything that has been touched by Tarantino turns to gold...a peculiar kind of gold, but gold nonetheless.

Great cast, cool visual look, Jessica Alba, good reviews so far, I'll be seeing it. I'll probably wait a few days, could be very crowded this weekend, but I am very excited!

I just got back from seeing it....wow...

Maybe the most visually stunning movie I've ever seen. I want to go see it again.

You need to check out Ebert's review in the Chicago Sun-Times... he gives it 4 out of 4 stars.

And all due respect to Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, Devon Aoki, et al... but Carla Gugino is definitely the hottest actress I've seen in a movie in a LONG time. She's the oldest of the lot, and curvy, but... wow, I think I should just stop right there.

One thing I'm trying to figure out is how Nick Hartnett's character fit into the movie. His character is listed on IMDB as being "The Salesman." Am I missing something?

That would be Josh Hartnett, and he was the assassin/hitman at the beginning and end of the movie. I guess in the Sin City comics he had a name.

Oops...right, Josh.

I know he was the hitman at the beginning and end, I'm just trying to figure out what his purpose was. ?

Hmm, I actually haven't seen any bad reviews of it. Some people are uncomfortable with the violence, but still recommend the movie.

Awesome movie, everything I expected and more! Tarantino polishes it off with his wacky and funny violence. A+ and a Must See! :D

Tarantino directed one scene. The one with Del Toro and Owen in the car. I don't think it was him who thought about the violence, that was all from Frank Miller's comics.

I saw it last night and was blown away. I have never seen a comicbook movie quite like this (felt like a comicbook). Benicio Del Toro and Mickey Rourke gave an awsome performance.
