"Sin City" - yeeeeesh!
Let's see... what can I tell? What should I tell? I won't give any spoilers away, but in case you don't even want to know if I liked it or not before you see it, I'll do an lj-cut.

First, random things: Chucks - a very obvious pair worn by one of the sickest characters (*G*), and a pair of red ones worn by one of the "good" guys. Gaya, I blame you. I CANNOT stop seeing Chucks everywhere. But now I'm a little leery of buying black ones, which would have been my first choice - *L*!

And... when you watch it... count how many times somebody says "Yeesh!" - *LOL*!!! Sorry, that just kills me. Blood and guts everywhere, but - darn... did they not use any bad language? Or was there so much that it was just all in the background? But to hear people go "yeeesh!" - just cracks me up!

Elijah - one hell of a creepy role. Not a big one, but it has impact. And he gets to do some fighting. I thought it was pretty damn neat.

What about the movie as a whole? It was neat to see, but I wouldn't see it again. I have to care about somebody in a movie to like it, and I didn't care about anybody, really. But I do hope the parts with Elijah get on the net eventually; I'd like to see all but the last scene he's in again. Still good thing he's got a "nice" role coming up; wouldn't want him to get the Tony Perkins curse.

Boo's pal at work said it was one of the most incredible films he'd ever seen, and that Elijah was the creepiest villain ever.

I don't know if I could handle the violence, unless it's really theatrically over the top (like Pulp Fiction, rather than Se7en). But Go Elijah!

I know... I could take it, but... between the mostly naked women, all of them with perfect bodies, and two of the "love stories" being between rugged much older men and perfect young women...? Well, can you say "masturbatory fantasy"? I felt a little... odd... sitting there in the theatre. Kept thinking I'd turn around and see a lot of creepy looking guys in rain coats around me!

BTW... since he's really in the beginning half or so... you might want to see it to that and then decide if you want to stay or not.

A candidate for the Do It Yourself Double Feature!

...But what else could I see? Hmm. This is why I love Metromix.

No movies for me until after SB's b-day party anyway.

Next Saturday. Whole bunch of seven-year-olds at our house. Glee!
It's only for two hours, thankfully. I'm making a Lego-shaped chocolate cake with bright yellow icing. Or maybe orange, although there aren't many orange Legos. In any case, cake will be served during the latter part of the gathering, ensuring peak sugar highs will occur in Mom and Dad's car, not in my house.

Oh no - I meant the other kids' parents. With SB's sugar high, we're on our own.

It IS great.. especially how the one patch of snow allows you to see the silhouettes of the two guardians... and the dark mountains allow you to see the flames! And the sentiment. *S*

A villain? *G* That's putting it mildly. "Severe sicko" is more like it! *L*! But... he's the quiet type, and you know what they say about them.

Hope you get a good group of people this weekend - no righteous rehabbers!

Chucks ARE everywhere! And yes, you will see that now. It's unavoidable and it only fueled my desire to have a pair. But just remember....Wil wears black chucks so how 'tough' can they really be? of course, so do the rappers, but I digress...

Buy the black ones. They go with the most stuff. Either that or Elijah cream colored ones. But buy 'em!!

"Elijah cream colored ones"? I thought he wore black or red?
