Frank Miller’s graphic novel series SIN CITY opens April 1st. Everyone knows about it since it’s being promoted up the wahzoo, or, depending on your location, the ying-yang. I don’t know that much about the movie, but I’m an American and that means that that won’t stop me from giving some my ill-formed opinions:
Robert Rodriguez insisted comic book auteur Frank Miller direct. This is against the Director’s Guild rules. So, Rodriguez resigned. The last guy I know who did that was George Lucas. For a big-time director guy insist that the visionary comic book guy direct is reason enough to see this one.
And look what they did to that sweet Gilmore Girl (above). They turned that nice fast-talking pastel-wearing cutie all gothy!
And, more importantly — Chicks in S&M gear: much more interesting than a guy in a bat suit!
Yesterday, I saw a bus on Adams Street, in downtown Brooklyn. It had this big “John Travolta in THE PUNISHER” advertisement. The poster was worn and peeling, but it was still hanging on to the side of the bus. Bad comic book movies can be so bad … I hope that SIN CITY is “Internet buzz”-worthy.
