    Now that I've seen the trailer, I am. ^_^

    Frank Miller is a GOD. I'm not really into graphic novels (in a..."reading lots of them" sense) but I have read a lot of his work since I'm attracted to "film noire" and dark type stuff.

    Looks great, it'll be even better for me since I'm a fan of several of the actors, film noire, and the whole 40s theme and dark story.

    I just saw the NEW trailer this weekend (during Be Cool).

    The crowd seemed kinda excited about it. Make me want to pick up the paperback editions before I watch the movie.

    I'm going to catch Sin City later today.

    I've also spent the last week going over a couple of the Sin City graphic novels. Particularly The Hard Goodbye, The Yellow Bastard, and The Big Fat Kill.

    I'd like to see how this translates to the big screen. From what I've heard it's supposed to be EXCELLENT.

    meant to be a very true interpretation of the novels.

    sounds cool, i picked up the books just to see what the fuss was all about (had heard of frank miller but i'm not really a comic guy so never really got around to it).

    i was really impressed. the artwork is mindblowing, the pace and feel so immersive. i'd really missed out on this it seems.

    can't wait until the movie is released in oz.

    From what I remember his story was from "A Dame To Kill". It's too bad they didn't include the entire story, at least we'll get to see it in the DVD. :bigthumb:

    I haven't bought it, but I rented it and it was awesome. It's obvious that Rodriguez had love for the story.

    I received it as a Christmas gift but regrettably haven't even had a chance to watch it yet.
