Sin City

Just watched (finally) "Sin City."

Damn.

It's so completely over-the-top. The dialogue and violence are completely preposterous. It's visually stunning, a postmodern homage to the film noir.

So of course I enjoyed the hell out of it.

The element that I just couldn't get enough of in that movie was the coloration choices (eg yellow guy, girl's blue eyes, some blood but not other). How cool!

Absolutely. Although the most striking thing for me was the dialogue.

Perhaps it needs the big screen.

I don't know. The action is over-the-top with lots of gore (although mostly in black and white) and scantily clad women.

As an intellectual (rather than *just* as a woman), will I like it?

(By the By, I loved Kill Bill, and I think it's safe to say that it was also over the top...)

It's even more stylized than "Kill Bill". I still don't know if you'll like it or not. I don't know how "intellectual" it is.

We really enjoyed it. It is one of the few (read: only) we have seen in the theater since Zane was born.

Yeah, I've written how I don't go to the theater much any more and I don't have little people to be concerned with.

Sadly, I don't miss it too much.
