Movie Review: Sin City

Let The Girl Go! aka another Sin City review

Sin City: The Movie and Lessons
Sin City moves you in a visual and gut wrenching way. The narratives immediately draw you in. The darkness of the scenes establishes a world where there is no hope and no light. It is as if daylight never comes….

Sin City: A Review
Among the random posts on IMDB.com about Sin City is the presumably high praise calling it the best adaptation of a graphic comic book ever to hit the silver screen. That’s nice and all, but what does that really…

Sin City is very funny, very sexy, very violent.

Robert Rodriguez’s adaptation of Frank Miller’s series of Sin City graphic novels is the latest link in an already hefty chain of films that try to overcome a lack of substance with an abundance of style. Although substantially better than…

Sin City is Sinfully Delicious
Adapted from Frank Miller’s graphic novel series, Sin City is a visually groundbreaking tour de force that is perhaps the best comic to film translation done to date. The rain falls hard in the burg of Basin City but cannot…

Sin City and the Future of Film

Movie Review: Sin City
The whole time I was left wondering whether I hated this film or loved it. In the end, I have to say it was a little of both. This movie is an instant Classic (5 out of 5) that will be quoted time and again. While it wasn’t what I expected (or wanted), it did what it was trying to do flawlessly.

film – Frank Miller’s Sin City
Frank Miller’s Sin City 5/5 Dripping with a dark, gritty, sleazy and ultra-violent style, Sin City is a graphic novel adaptation that suceeds with its three stories that end up interwining. Mickey Rourke looks like a cross between Kurt Douglas and Flattop…
