The highly stylized noir graphic novel is getting a second shot at the box office. The original 2005 ‘Sin City’ was stunning in its jump from page to screen; Frank Miller’s source material never looked better. For the sequel he and Robert Rodriguez bring us back to Basin City and crank up everything. The look is just as stunning. Here’s all they are saying so far about this one:

My Take on ‘Man of Steel’

After watching the movie I took to Twitter and announced “Really don’t know how to feel about @ManofSteelMovie. I will have to think on this.” I spent the evening thinking about the movie and I have come to this conclusion: I still don’t know what to think. So I am just going to start writing about ‘Man of Steel’ and see if I can figure out how I feel about it.

Big budget plus big talent plus anticipation doesn’t always equal hit. In fact, more times than not it is the opposite. Thus the reason I am guarding my expectations on the latest reboot of the venerable comic book franchise. The parts are there for a ‘Dark Knightian’ success. But let’s not go there just yet. (Inside I have serious nerdgasms every time I see the different trailers for this movie)

Let’s hope Chris Nolan and Zach Snyder have captured lightning in a bottle because I really want to see a Nolan/Snyder ‘Justice League’ movie with Christian Bale playing an older, broken Bruce Wayne as mentor to Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Nightwing and all the others in the Halls of Justice. I really feel the success of this film will determine the future of the Justice League.
