Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

29 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Perhaps it was comic book movie fatigue; perhaps it was sequel fatigue; perhaps it was a feeling of cash grabbing now that comic book films are the money making machines they are; or perhaps it was the fact that Robert Rodriguez’ last film was utter trash, but for whatever reason I was not looking forward to Sin City: A Dame to Kill for. Then I re-watched the first movie again (for the first time many years) in preparation for »

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Three more stories from the vaults of Sin City as some of its twisted citizens get in too deep.

The sequel to Sin City has been a long time coming and in the wake of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, part of me wonders if it’s been too long. The stories we get on this adventure are the titular A Dame to Kill For, Nancy’s Last Dance, Just Another Saturday Night and The Long Bad Night. Each of the stories in themselves are interesting and A Dame To Kill For is clearly the »

Venice Film Review: ‘Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)’

27 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A quarter-century after “Batman” ushered in the era of Hollywood mega-tentpoles — hollow comicbook pictures manufactured to enthrall teens and hustle merch — a penitent Michael Keaton returns with the comeback of the century, “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance),” a blisteringly hot-blooded, defiantly anti-formulaic look at a has-been movie star’s attempts to resuscitate his career by mounting a vanity project on Broadway. , that will electrify the industry, captivate arthouse and megaplex crowds alike, send awards pundits into orbit and give fresh wings to Keaton’s career.

Keaton was a controversial choice to play the Caped Crusader back in 1989, though the role was the best and worst thing that could have happened to the “Mr. Mom” star, who became world-renowned but never found another role of that stature — and who didn’t get nearly the same boost from working with Tarantino (on »

Film Review: 'The November Man'

26 August 2014 9:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Twelve years. That's how long it's been since Pierce Brosnan last portrayed James Bond on the silver screen. That history, where he played the iconic British agent for four films, is what the producers of The November Man are hoping will draw you to their movie. Even the tag line, "A spy is never out of the game" is meant to convey the idea that "he's back!" Much of the promotional work for the film centers around "Look! It's Pierce Brosnan, back as a spy!" even though it has little to do with the movie. The idea that his character, Peter Devereaux, was ever "out" of the spy world and returns to it is barely emphasized in the actual film. It's clear this is all about Brosnan. And to really drive that point home, they even cast a former Bond Girl to run around with him through exotic locales.

Action Thriller The Prince Lacks Finesse

25 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

The action thriller The Prince is so bad that the most noteworthy thing about it is that the opening credits list 19 executive producers. Nineteen! Jason Patric stars as Paul, a hit man–turned–auto mechanic searching for his daughter, Beth (Gia Mantegna), who has disappeared from college. Paul turns to his daughter’s flirty classmate (Jessica Lowndes), who reports that the heroin-addicted Beth went to New Orleans with her drug-lord boyfriend (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson), who in turn is under the thumb of a crime boss known as Omar (cameo slut Bruce Willis), who just happens to hate Paul for (accidentally) killing his wife and daughter back in the day. Despite a cast that includes John Cusack as Paul’s pal, and the charismatic Ko »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

I feel like I should temper this review by letting you know that I have been very excited for this film since its announcement. The casting announcements only heightened my excitement to the point that when I saw that my local cinema was doing a double screening of the original I leapt at the opportunity. I’ll say it now. I loved this film.

Why The Makers of ‘The One I Love’ Don’t Want You To Know What It’s About

25 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The definition of spoiler used to be pretty black-and-white. Back in the summer of 1980, was it a spoiler telling someone Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s father? Without a doubt. How about telling someone Bruce Willis is actually a ghost in the 1999 film The Sixth Sense? Absolutely. Or what about in 2001 how Captain Leo Davidson discovers the Apes inexplicably took over the Earth in Tim Burton’s remake of Planet of the Apes? Nobody probably cared in that case, but the point stands. Lately, for some, the definition of “spoiler” has altered, mainly because people have been growing increasingly spoiler sensitive over the past few years. Some people actively seek out spoilers before they see a film or a television episode, but for others the mere mention of a relatively small plot detail can be enough to send them into a rage. The most recent film to dredge up new debate on the topic is The One I Love, a »

Meet The Murderous Men Of ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

25 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a film that has been many years in the making. Critics and audiences alike went mad for Sin City when it was released way back in 2005. It had all the ingredients of a perfect film; it was gritty, violent, sexy and stylish. Finally back for round two, the film sees many familiar faces – as well as several new ones – once again inhabit the seedy world.

Yesterday we brought you a run down on all the lovely ladies that take up residence within the walls of the fictitious Basin City. Today we delve into the lives of the crooked criminals and valiant vigilantes that have both the X and Y chromosomes. The men of Sin City range from the good, to the bad, to the seriously demented, with the likes of Mickey Rourke, Jeremy Piven, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dennis Haysbert all on  board. »

​Box Office: Why Did 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Tank?

25 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Judging by the pre-release hype, you'd think "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" was a long- and eagerly-awaited sequel, a comic book movie for connoisseurs, whose all-star cast, eye-popping visuals, and violent action would make it the summer's last blockbuster. Given that the original opened at $29.1 million in 2005 dollars, the sequel, with a price boost from 3D, was expected to debut at least in the high teens. Such an opening might be good enough for first place, with a tight race expected among "Sin City," lingering hits "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and fellow newcomer "If I Stay."

And yet, when the smoke cleared, the film premiered with just an estimated $6.5 million, opening way down in eighth place. The other movies all did about as well as predicted -- "Guardians," "Turtles," and "If I Stay" all drew around $17 million, with "Guardians" claiming a slight edge »

Exclusive: Jason Patric Talks The Prince and More

24 August 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

He can be self-destructive, darkly debonair or a lot more dangerous, but Jason Patric is best known for bringing a smoldering intensity to his roles, be it in it something like “The Lost Boys,” “Geronimo: An American Legend,” ”Rush,” “Sleepers” or “Narc,” Joe Carnahan’s 2002 film that reminded people of his talent after a self-imposed four-year hiatus. In his latest movie, director Brian A. Miller’s crime thriller “The Prince,” Patric stars alongside Bruce Willis, John Cusack, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Jessica Lowndes and South Korean pop star-turned-actor Rain, playing a retired crime boss and single father forced to team up with his best friend and go to dark places when his  [ Read More ]

Sin City's Robert Rodriguez "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting ability

24 August 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Rodriguez said that he was "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting skills.

The Sin City director first worked with the musician on Machete Kills, before offering her a cameo in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told E! News: "I told her she had to be in it [Sin City 2]... The camera loves her.

"She's a great performer. She's performed twice for me now and I was blown away by her discipline. She studied acting before she became a singer and you could really tell."

He continued: "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away from us in Austin. She was ready.

"She brought her own wigs! I said, 'We're not going to have time to make a wig for you.' She showed up, we did the scene, she knocked it out of the park and then she was back on tour. »

Box Office: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Back on Top, ‘Sin City 2′ Flops

24 August 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Teen girls and fanboys duked it out at the box office this weekend, with “Guardians of the Galaxy” getting the upper hand on newcomer “If I Stay” and scoring first place with a $17.6 million haul, according to studio estimates.

It was the second time that Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” came out on top, although two weeks separate its victories. It marks the first time this year that a film has topped the domestic box office in non-consecutive weeks.

Guardians of the Galaxy” has become the summer’s top-grossing domestic release and, with $489.5 million globally, has passed the final tallies of “Thor” ($449 million) and “Captain America: The First Avenger” ($371 million).

The relative weakness of this weekend’s crop of new releases benefited another holdover, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” which came in at second place with $16.8 million. The Paramount Pictures reboot has now made $145.6 million stateside after three weeks in theaters. »

Box office: 'If I Stay' beats a strong 'Guardians' on Friday with $6.8 million

23 August 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The drama "If I Stay" took the top spot at the box office, but it may not stay there for long, as Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" is enjoying a strong resurgence. Meanwhile, Frank Miller's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is D.O.A.  "Stay," which stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Jamie Blackley and Mireille Enos, picked up $6.8 million on Friday, easily topping "Guardians" which picked up another $4.8 million in its fourth weekend. However, it looks likely that "Guardians" will pull ahead of "Stay" by Sunday. "Stay" is expected to earn a slightly disappointing $16.8 million, while "Guardians" could rack up slightly more.  The Marvel film -- starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Coooper -- is poised to become the biggest domestic hit of the summer. Having already earned $239 million, it will have no trouble crossing the $250 million mark by Sunday. "Transformers: Age of Extinction »

‘Sin City 2′ Bombs at Friday Box Office, ‘Guardians′ Will Be Back on Top

23 August 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” was left battered and bruised on Friday at the domestic box office, while “Guardians of the Galaxy” will likely skyrocket back up top, eking out Friday’s victor “If I Stay” by Sunday.

The retro-noir, budgeted between $60 million and $70 million, came in sixth on Friday behind the sports drama “When the Game Stands Tall,” with $2.6 million. It’s on track for dismal $7 million this weekend — less than half the $15 million projected sum.

The sequel comes almost a decade after The Weinstein Co. stuck gold with the original pic. “Sin City” debuted to $29.1 million in 2005 on its way to a $74.1 million domestic total ($158.8 million worldwide). Nine years is evidently too long of a gap in between films for audiences, especially since the franchise no longer has critical support. This second installment earned a 43% fresh rating on the Rotten Tomatoes, while “Sin City” garnered 78%.

'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For' Review Roundup: Critics Mixed On Pulpy Noir Sequel

22 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, from co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, once again brings Miller’s graphic novels to the big screen.

A sequel to the visually stunning Sin City 2005, A Dame to Kill For blends two of Miller’s comic book stories with a pair of new tangential storylines. Once again, crime and violence anchor the plot for the movie’s cast of characters, which includes stripper Nancy (Jessica Alba) cop Hartigan (Bruce Willis), poker player Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the monstrous Marv (Mickey Rourke). Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green and Powers Boothe also star.

Film Review: ‘The Prince’

22 August 2014 8:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s often an arrogant and presumptuous critical tic to reflexively refer to turkeys starring major stars as “paycheck projects,” as though venality were the only possible reason a good actor might end up in a bad film. Yet it’s hard to think of a better explanation for the presence of John Cusack and Bruce Willis in Brian A. Miller’s “The Prince.” With the latter turning in one of his least committed onscreen performances, and the former appearing to be suffering from the worst migraine of his life every second he’s on camera, it’s up to star Jason Patric to somehow salvage this basic-cable-quality actioner, yet his options are limited. A brief theatrical run seems a mere formality for the Lionsgate release, with on-demand offering more promising returns.

Set very prominently in New Orleans, though shot in Mobile, Ala., “The Prince” seems to imagine itself a »

Film Review: More Risqué ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Doesn’t Dare to Trailblaze Again

22 August 2014 8:21 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sex sells, sure, but the film-noir sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” makes you feel dirty if you’re left thinking that’s enough.

Nine years since the visually groundbreaking, avant-garde hit “Sin City,” Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s biggest mistake with their next incarnation is replacing the first film’s bloodthirsty impact with too much nudity.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The film is equally violent as it is naked, but we’ve almost become numb to such mutilation and it’s certainly part of this story. These talented filmmakers insult audiences by thinking Eva Green’s rabid libido and willingness to bare it all can outshine the film’s need to be otherwise compelling. She’ll satisfy the horny little boy or girl in you, but leave the mature man or woman in you really are intellectually unsatisfied.

In film and television, Green has clearly made a decision »
