I saw dead people

...lots of dead, dying, and dismembered people when I watched Sin City last night. I'm actually grateful it was in black and white, other wise I think it would've been too gory to handle.

Mickey Roarke's acting amazed me. I haven't seen him play anything but a washed-up gangster in years, and his character of Marv was totally cool (for a berserker). I actually rented it for Bruce Willis, but his story was the one I liked the least of the three. Don't know why. I guess I would've rather he'd gone after Powers Boothe's character at the end.

I think this is one of those movies you're going to either love or hate. Me, I may just have to buy this one...

I'm thinking this is one I'll have to watch with my brother instead of my wife :-)

I'm hoping to have this movie from Net Flix this weekend.

I got that movie in the mail yesterday and watched it lastnight. Both my wife and I loved it. I do agree that I wish Hardigan went after the senator/Powers Booth.

I saw Sin City this week too. Very different. I thought the storyline was okay but the look was enough for me. One of the few movies where I can say that.
