Box Office: September Preview – Dolphins, Boxtrolls, a Maze and The Equalizer

19 hours ago | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

September is decidedly less eventful than August was, offering only a few standout titles for what will probably be a quiet month at the box office. September starts with The Identical on the 5th, a drama starring Ashley Judd and Ray Liotta. It’s looking at maybe $2 or 3 million opening weekend and a $6 […]

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 »

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 »

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.

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 »

Lady Gaga poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

22 August 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coinciding with its U.S. release today, a new character poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has been released online featuring Lady Gaga as Bertha; check it out below, and if you’ve not done so already you can read our ★★★★ review of the film here…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

Film Review: ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Breaks No New Ground

21 August 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When the first “Sin City” (2005) was released – based on the graphic novels by Frank Miller – the conversion of a film to a noir-like comic book atmosphere was pioneering. The sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” has heightened that look, but this time has much less to say.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

With an all-star cast, and leftover revenge factors from the first film, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller – with a guest director credit from Quentin Tarantino – pile on the quality kills, nudity and extreme gunplay. This plays fine for the 15-year-old boy in all of us, but doesn’t challenge itself beyond that commonality, and the film suffers from a redundancy that starts to draw away even from the super hyper, black-and-white city of darkness. “Sin City” still packs a jolt to the senses, but once the first wave hits, the rest hit the shore with diminishing power.

This is a “meanwhile” plot, »

Love the Sinner: Miller & Rodriguez Bring Back Hyperstylized Noir with Mixed Results

It has been almost a decade since the visually innovative Sin City thrummed into theaters, cloaked in lascivious shades of film noir nightmares. In between now and then, co-director and creator Frank Miller stepped out on his own in 2008 with The Spirit, an abysmal record of why perhaps Robert Rodriguez was a necessary cohort to return on the sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Suffering from the regular pitfalls of the overly ambitious sequel, this chapter will surely disappoint those hoping to experience the same level of creative vicissitudes because this go round is a brittle, wearied tethering of varied storylines. But, imperfect their latest creation may be, it isn’t without significant entertainment value. As cheaply as it tends to favor its multitudinous women, doling out an equal helping of misogyny with its crackpot male fantasy version of empowered females, »

The 10 Best Improvised Scenes in Film

21 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Even though scripts play an incredibly important part of the movie making process, sometimes a little improvisation is just what a movie scene needs to take it from good to great. CineFix has put together a fantastic video that highlights the 10 greatest improvised scenes in film history. I think they did a great job putting this together, and I can't think of anything that I would add to it. Check it out! I've included the list of films mentioned in the video below.

Bridesmaids (2011)

A lot of this movie was the talented comedic actresses in the cast going off book, but Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone’s “Air Marshall” exchange takes the cake.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Marlon Brando’s performance as Col Kurtz was largely made up on the spot. And while we don’t endorse actors not learning their lines, we can’t fault what came of it in this instance… »

‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ hits a campy sweet spot

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Written by Frank Miller

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller

USA, 2014

Unlikely as it may have seemed, 2014 has emerged as the year where, among other things, Eva Green proved to be the best part of a rock-dumb green screen sequel film. First there was her turn in 300: Rise of an Empire, and now comes Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. She is the eponymous “dame,” Ava Lord, a character so rigidly crafted to the femme fatale archetype as to be a cartoon. Of course, that goes for all the characters in this series, as they are portrayed both in these films and in the comic book series on which they are based. The cast also overflows with corrupt politicians, brassy whores, and down-on-their-luck antiheroes suffering apparent vocal fry, with a towering black manservant and a mute Asian assassin thrown in for good measure. »

Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez on Mickey Rourke, 3D, and a Third 'Sin City'

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

Back when the first "Sin City" was released in 2005, the idea of doing a 1:1 translation of a graphic novel for the big screen was so outside the box that it bordered on lunacy. But that's just what Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker behind "Desperado" and "Spy Kids," did when adapting Frank Miller's hard-boiled graphic novel "Sin City."

Instead of appropriating the look and feel of the comic book, he just Xeroxed it. It was still black-and-white, with flashes of color, and the actors he chose (among them, Mickey Rourke as the mountainous bad-ass Marv, and Jessica Alba as damsel-in-distress Nancy) were so uncannily close to their comic book equivalents that they might as well have been inked and painted.

Rodriguez also made the generous decision to bring Miller on board as a screenwriter and co-director (something that the DGA frowned upon, leading to Rodriguez losing out on a number of high-profile studio gigs). Together, »

Synopsis:

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

It’s been nearly ten years since we last visited Basin City and some feel that the decade absence has dampened a lot of the hype and interest in its sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But the directing team of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller were not going to let that stop them as they bring perhaps the most popular book from the Sin City cannon to the big screen with some old faces, some new »

Catching up with Sin City residents Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba

20 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s been nearly ten years since we last checked in on the residents of Sin City.  My, how the times – and faces – have changed.

In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, we once again enter the black and white world of Nancy (Jessica Alba), Marv (Mickey Rourke), Gail (Rosario Dawson), Senator Roark (Powers Boothe) and Hartigan (Bruce Willis), who are joined by the vengeance-seeking Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and the dame to kill for Ava (Eva Green).  And he may be a familiar character but Dwight’s rocking a totally new face, courtesy of Josh Brolin who steps into the franchise as the pre-facial reconstruction surgery Dwight (taking over from Clive Owen).

Brolin isn’t the only new face lurking in the shadows of Sin City which has had an influx of new inhabitants.  He’s joined by other newcomers Juno Temple, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Lloyd, Stacy Keach, »
