Me heart Marv

Yeah, okay, just got back from SIN CITY, and, my friends, it's nearly as good as I could've hoped. Some stilted dialog and, honestly, they could've ripped out about half the voiceovers without hurting anything, but, fuck, it IS Sin City, just with pictures moving across the screen instead of static panels in your hand. Remarkable, and, hopefully, a harbinger of well-done and faithful adaptations of graphic novels.

Yeah, not much of a review, but, hell, reviews are just to give you an excuse to not leave the house. Go see it, if you love comic books or Mickey Rourke or crazy levels of utterly surreal violence. And get down on your knees and thank Robert Rodriguez for making the movie that will, God willing, finally get the big guns to make GOOD adaptations of such standouts as The Dark Knight Returns, Watchmen, Sandman, Transmetropolitan, etc.

Nice going, Bobby. Ronin, anyone?
