Sin City
« on: July 22, 2005, 05:15:08 AM »
Has anybody watched this movie? I reckon it was great! I'm not usually one for movies that have different little plots that have nothing much to do with each other but this was really good!! (Only connection between the plots are Shellie (Brittany Murphey) and just once Nancy (Jessica Alba) and the city it's happening in)

It's better than your average comic book/movie transformation like Spiderman, Batman, DareDevil, etc.

I like the techniques that are used in this movie, like how it's in black and white, it makes the colours from blood and stuff stand out. Becky's (Alexis Bledel) eyes are really pretty!! They stood out heaps!! I also liked all the camera angles they got because they were like scenes from a comic book. AND I think they got very good actors that suited the characters they would play.

It's kinda sexist though, but not to the extreme. It's because the three main plotlines are about one guy/hero who need to do something for a chick, like revenge on her death and such.

But overall, I enjoyed this movie a lot and look forward to the next two! ;D

P.S. Jessica Alba was great in this with her lasso! Lolz, but she definitely does not suit blonde hair (even though it's black and white)!!

AMAZING movie. Saw it in theaters with a bunch of my friends. I thought Jessica Alba was super hot in it. Storyline was GREAT in my opinion

A great movie. I love its special affects. Made it look kinda like the compic book. Black and white etc.

I think they followed the comic book pretty well.
My favorite story were Nacy and Hardegons part. And when Becky rats the hookers out.

I must say that the actors that they got were pretty good. I really felt the characters =D

Anyway, a great movie to see. Definitly recomend it.

Ah hah, well I thought that too.
But I think she did pretty good for her "goody two shoes" image. She played a hot bad ass  ;)

Fucking good if i must say so, a visual treat compared to some of the drunken camera rubbish used in some action films these days.

I only flicked it on to see what it was like , at the time i was very tired , but my eyes didn't dare blink for the first half.

The only time the visuals were toned down was to let you concentrate on the gritty storyline. Glad to see a comic book movie that hadn't lost touch with the inner human desire to flip out all-powerful and stomp on fools.


fucking good.

they should rename this movie to Awesome City. other movies should take a cue from this one and add more over-the-top violence.

i believe the special extended dvd or whatever is out now.
