Sin City

Sin City

Just a note:

I liked the Sin City movie. Well done. Very enjoyable. Faithful to the comic, down to panel-to-panel recreations of Frank Miller's work. So faithful that Rodriguez shared his director's billing with Miller.

It's nice to see a filmmaker believe so much in the source material that he's willing to butt heads with people over just how much credit he wanted or, in Robert's case, didn't want to take.

The Director's Guild wouldn't let him share director's billing, so he resigned from the union.

"Toodle-oo!" he said. And then he spent the afternoon scoring two movies, editing a third, writing the next Spy Kids adventure, making a sandwich, and then editing the full length feature he'd shot that morning.

Good stuff in the movie. Gotta love Mickey Rourke as Marv. Rosario Dawson and Clive Owen both do excellent jobs.

I liked me some Sin City.
