John Hartigan: I'm looking for Nancy Callahan?

Shellie: Eyes to the stage pilgrim, she's just warming up.

I knew I would like Sin City, I just didn’t know I would like it so much. It has several things going for it that I’m completely in support of:

.: it’s weird
.: it’s comedicaly violent
.: a storyline that actually completes the full-movie arc so many films go for
>.: Quentin Tarantino
.: Jessica Alba

.: Also, Jessica Alba

Not everyone will like this movie. If, for instance, you really liked Men in Black , II you will probably not like this movie. If you thought Unbreakable was way better than people said it was, have fond meories of Dead Alive, and you own a copy of Reservoir Dogs, you will love this movie.

There is the hyper violence a la Kill Bill which, for some reason, is not terribly disturbing. As I sit here, I can think of at least 7 severed heads featured as main plot points. If I saw 7 severed heads in real life, I might actually be motivated to seek therapy. In the movie, though, I found myself fairly full of glee.

It occurs to me that I suck at movie reviews… at any rate, I give this movie 5 out of 5 floorpies.
