This is my personal thoughts, opinions and musings place. I will also rant about things, especially politically-correct things that irritate me. And sci-fi. Did I mention sci-fi? There'll be lots of sci-fi stuff here. And movies, too. Mmmmm... Movies

Sin City, or how not to make Sky Captain

Sin City is one of most visually stunning films I have seen in a very long time. Shot entirely against blue screen, everything not actually human is computer-generated, even the weather. “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” was done exactly the same way, but where Sky Captain failed, Sin City succeeds, because the F/X do not overshadow the story. In fact, Sky Captain's biggest problem was the fact that there wasn't a story. Sin City has three, and all are more or less related, even if it doesn't look it. I will not say more, since the film is still new and I wouldn't want to spoil it for anybody. Suffice it to say, however, that if you don't like violence, don't see this film. If you don't, you will miss a great film experience. For once, in many years now, I have not felt ripped off when going to the movies.
