Well, we had an anticipation thread....but no actual viewing thread. Has anyone other than me see it? I saw it last Friday, and really enjoyed it. Just like the comic book, when it came out, it was quite onorthodox in the way it was shot and all. The scenes looked like frames from a comic book with over exagurated effects (i.e. wind blowing on the dock). The story with Willis was probably the weakest one; I really, really liked the one with Goldie!

I don't have too much time to write a lengthy review, so I'll just add one more thing: this is the first time EVER I've been carded ata  movie theater.


overal:: 9/10

This is definately a movie I'm going to see. Not only because it's the only movie in IMDB top 100 I haven't seen.

Alas, IMDB says Sin City will be released in Sweden 20th July. :(

The only ones I ever saw that served beer (and liquor!) were a few in Michigan.  It was pretty cool if ya ask me.

We have "Gold Class" here, basically a posh cinema with 12 seats, and you can order food/beer/wine whatever and they'll bring it into you.  Jeez it's nice, but exy.  Haven't seen Sin City, but it looks alright.  May check it out.

Easily the funniest movie about rape, prostitution, pedophilia, dismemberment, cannibalism, and mass murder I've seen in the last year.

I saw it yesterday and it was really good. Eliah Wood's character was  :cool:.

Anyone else that thought it reminded alot about the computer game Max Payne?

The comic came out long before the game.

The most famous one (or it might be a chain) I know of is in Texas - the Alamo Drafthouse.  They serve meals, have theme nights, and even have nights where people aren't allowed to bring kids.  Sounds cool to me!

I know.
Nevertheless, the movie's style with the voiceover and atmosphere really made me think of Max Payne.

have you noticed that his character was not featured in any of the previews/ads - if he was, I wouldn't be so excited about the movie, as IMO, he is a really poor actor. Good thing he had no lines in this movie.
