Comics on Film: Ranking 2014's Comic Book Movies

2 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

As people everywhere get ready to say good-bye to the summer season, Comics on Film has reached that time in the year where we can look back on the major comics-based movie releases of the year and figure out which we liked best and which we didn't like so much. From the blockbuster releases provided by the characters of Marvel Comics at multiple studios, to the return of the Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird-created Ninja Turtles, on down through the harsh and unforgiving streets of Frank Miller's Basin City, 2014 has proven to be a surprisingly diverse year for comic book cinema. Maybe, even, a transformative one. With eight live-action comic book movies released between March and August of this year, let's get right into the rankings for 2014's comic book...

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

14 hours ago | 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:

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 »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

26 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

In 2005, director Robert Rodriguez, with Frank Miller and Quentin Tarantino riding shotgun, brought Miller's neo-noir graphic novel series Sin City to life, keeping the hyper stylised aesthetic and hard boiled dialogue intact during the transition from page to screen. It was rightly lauded for its stunning visuals, mainly presented in black and white with flashes of vivid colour, and is the finest example of a true comic book to screen translation to date. Now, nine years later, Rodriguez and Miller have delivered the long awaited sequel, and, sadly, it could have stayed a wish in the heart of every Sin City fan, proving to be a tired, lazy retread of what delighted us almost a decade ago. Taking it's cue from the original, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is made up of a number of separate stories all taking place in the titular, corrupt city. Also like the first Sin City, »

At the Texas Premiere for 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

26 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had its Texas premiere at the Paramount Theatre last week, and writer/director Robert Rodriguez was on the red carpet for the hometown screening that benefited the Austin Film Society. Unfortunately co-director/co-writer Frank Miller missed his flight and with back-to-back premieres -- Los Angeles, Austin, New York -- it was not possible for him to be at the Austin screening.

Rodriguez said he made Miller a co-director because he knew visual storytelling, and as a fellow cartoonist Rodriguez knew Miller would love the experience.

"It's exactly the same thing, but you are using a camera and your paper characters will now talk to you because they are actors, and that will give you the biggest thrill." Additionally, Rodriguez told Miller that he would "be able to tell backstories that aren't even in any of your books.

With announcements for 'Executioner' and Remo Williams, Hollywood seems crazy for pulp

25 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many of you have ever read an actual original era pulp story? Anything involving Doc Savage or The Shadow or John Carter or Doctor Death or The Phantom Detective or Tarzan or Solomon Kane or Conan or The Continental Op? If you haven't, that puts you in what I am sure is a vast majority at this point. I can't fault anyone for not being a reader of that sort of source material. It's not something that is part of the active mainstream right now, but if Hollywood gets its way, that may be about to change. There are some huge names in the world of pulp. By far, the biggest budget pulp title currently pending release is the David Yates "Tarzan" that Warner Bros. is putting out in 2016. When I interviewed Samuel L. Jackson at Comic-Con this summer, he repeatedly told me how excited he was by what »

Film Review: 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

25 August 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Nine years after the release of 2005's Sin City, directors Robert Rodriquez and Frank Miller (who also wrote the script) reunite for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014). Not much has changed, however. As visually intoxicating as the film is on the outside, it's dimly vacant on the inside, with not even Eva Green's presence and charged performance able to hold the audiences attention. Unravelling over four vignettes (two that have been ripped from Miller's own comic-books, and two that have been written specifically for the sequel, A Dame to Kill For adheres to the same template as its predecessor. The film opens once again with the grizzled figure of Marv (Mickey Rourke), abandoned at the roadside with no memory.

Here's What 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Looks Like Before Computer Effects Are Added

25 August 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City, didn’t exactly blast its way to the top of the box office this past weekend, opening in eighth place. That hasn’t stopped the team from releasing this B-roll footage revealing countless behind-the-scenes moments captured during the film’s production. The most striking thing about all of this material is just how green it is. Sin City is best known for its stark and stylized black-and-white color scheme, so it’s a bit of a shock to watch actors parading around in front of lots of green screens so everything can be added in digitally later. Whenever we see clips like this, we come away with a new respect for actors because they’re working in an...

Second Opinion – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

25 August 2014 9:49 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.

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.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For gives the audience a great mix of old »

Watch: 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Footage Without Visual Effects

25 August 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, nine years later, the audience who enjoyed Sin City in 2005 just doesn't seem to be very interested in the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, because the film bombed at the box office this past weekend. Personally, I didn't find the film to be terrible, but just more of the same coming far too late. But there are still some cool visuals to be seen (especially Eva Green), and having a movie with pretty much all the environments created in post-production is pretty impressive. And if you want to see what it's like for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller to shoot a film in this manner, essentially without a real set, some B-roll footage has surfaced. It has to be really difficult to act in a film like this with nothing on set. Watch! Here's a couple chunks of B-roll from Sin City: A Dame to Kill For »

Box Office Weekend: Guardians Retake Lead and Summer Honors

25 August 2014 8:04 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It may have not been the most likely contender for the title, but Guardians of the Galaxy did the near impossible and dethroned Transformers: Age of Extinction for highest earning domestic release of the summer box office. With an estimated $17.6 million this weekend, it pulled ahead of both the Michael Bay directed robot smash fest as well as the Bay-produced mutant fest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. While already a minor success, with an estimated $16.8 million it trails Guardians of the Galaxy by over $100 million in gross earnings, though both films remain the highest earning films of the top ten. None of the remaining movies have broken the $100 million line, but that does not mean they have not been successes on their own terms.

If I Stay, the latest young adult novel-turned-movie, debuted in third with an estimated $16.4 million, not enough to turn many heads but enough to make back its $11 million costs and then some. »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City, opened in theaters this past weekend and is a very different kind of movie because of the way it's shot, as witnessed in this B-roll footage revealing countless behind-the-scenes moments captured during the film’s production.   The most striking thing about all of this material is just how green it is.

Box Office: An Expensive Lesson in Sequel Production

25 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here, with the weekend’s box office report. Much like last week, the biggest story at the multiplex is the massive failure of a has-been brand. Then, it was the shrinking shoulders of 80s action heroes that could not bear the weight of a changing, modern world. Now, it is Frank Miller’s overly familiar aesthetic and the fading stars of Jessica Alba and crew. This catastrophe is of epic proportions. Budgeted around $70m, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For failed to make even 1/10th of its production costs back and fell behind the aforementioned Expendables 3. Reviews haven’t been kind and any affection for the original film has vanished in the intervening decade. You either have to suffocate the audiences with non-stop sequels and reboots before they know who’s hitting them, or they’ll forget you. That’s the lesson for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller »

Required Reading: Cinema Sins and Reflections on Reflecting

25 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “Strange Lands: International Sci-Fi” — Max Nelson at Film Comment opens a multi-part series on futuristic wonderment without borders. “In America, questions surrounding the moral, political, and spiritual consequences of technological progress ended up being posed most often, and arguably most successfully, in the language of mass spectacle. In countries struck closer and deeper by the atrocities of the war, the same questions likewise found their fullest expression in the sci-fi film. But it was a changed sort of expression: more agonized, more private, and more willing to run up against philosophical dead ends. The nightmare of the American sci-fi moviegoer is that science has delved too deep into nature, awoken something in nature, and that nature is now preparing to take its revenge. The nightmare of the Polish or Czech moviegoer in the »

Career Watch: Can Eva Green Rise Above Femme Fatale Typecasting?

25 August 2014 5:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" did little to add sizzle to the late-summer box office this past weekend after collecting a slim $6.5 million and dismissive reviews. But it’s not from lack of trying on the part of Eva Green. This casting addition to the stylized babes-brutes-and-bullets sequel based on Frank Miller’s lurid comic-book series steamed up more than a few critics’ 3-D glasses as Ava Lord, a diabolical emerald-eyed femme fatale who has a hard time keeping her clothes on. “Pulp and noir were often built on the beautiful shoulders of such characters as Ava, and the main justification for seeing the film is to watch Eva Green claim membership in the pantheon of noir leading ladies," writes Todd McCarthy in The Hollywood Reporter.  Adds Voice Media's Amy Nicholson: “Eva Green is sexy, funny, dangerous and wild -- everything the film needed to be -- »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Disappoints At The U.S. Box Office

25 August 2014 3:19 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

After nine years waiting for it, it seems Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hasn't found its audience in America, with the long awaited sequel making just an estimated $6.5 million at the U.S. box office. The movie opens today on this side of the pond so hopefully the Europeans will be much kinder to it, but it is expected the sequel will make no where close to the originals $158 million worldwide gross. Considering how many people were chomping at the bit to see a sequel since the original was released, this comes as a surprise. I didn't think it would match the original, but never even imagined it would do this badly. Could it be the sequel is nine years too late, and we are now over Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's hyper-stylised noir vision? Sound off below with your thoughts. »

​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 »
