This weekend we're getting another 300 movie. And now here's a trailer for a sequel to Sin City. This means it's only a matter of time before we're staring down the barrel of Sky Captain and the World of The Day After Tomorrow. I can wait.
More than anything, this ad for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For feels like a Sin City television show. It may have some familiar faces and employ a style which borders right on the nostalgic at this point, but something feels hollow about it. And since the original Sin City was the last Robert Rodriguez that managed to weigh over an ounce, that's a troubling indicator.
And yet, I will see it. Because I like the look, and I like the violence, and I doubt it will bore me. I have a feeling I may be a bit lonely, though. We'll see when the film hits on August 22.
