I'm almost never asleep by 3 am in the summer, so I figured I would go pickup my copy and watch it tonight (release date this Tuesday aka Today).
I just love everything about this movie. It's oozing with style, violence, and humor.
For a b&w flick, you wouldn't think it but Sin City makes for an exceptional reference disc for those who have a hi-def set and/or a surround sound setup. The picture is razor sharp and the colors that are present just jump off the screen.
Definitely not an "everyday" person's movie, but if you liked any of the director's (Rodriguez & Tarantino) previous works like Kill Bill, and Desperado, you should be right at home.
The only way someone should go without seeing this movie is if they took a vow never to watch film, ever.
Its easily one of Bruce Willis's best, top 3 or top 5 movies (Die Hard, 5th Element, Last Man Standing being the only three I can put on par with it), and the best part is that he wasn't the best actor in it, Mickey Rourke was.
The only reason I wouldn't pick up this dvd right away is because I've heard that it has virtually no extras, and its expected a "Delux" or "Special Edition" version will be out for say Christmas or so, and I'd rather wait to get that.
The deluxe edition is going to have 3 versions of the film. Well not 3 films, but RR and Miller shot enough footage to tell each of the 3 stories separately, so we'll be able to watch all 3 separate like the books.
I take it you weren't an Unbreakable fan Mad? I loved that movie too.

Actually, I am guilty of being an Unbreakable fan. Maybe its because I saw that before the Sixth Sense. Most people I know thought it was silly or boring, but I liked how they made him, yes I realize the term should be an oxymoron but, realistic superhero.
I just didn't think it was one of Willis's very best.
