I’ve seen many, many movies in my twenty-nine years. In all that time, I have never sat in an entirely empty theater, at least not until I went to see Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. I should have taken this as a sign, but then again, I’ve never been very good picking up on bad omens. Continue reading
Later this month Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller will follow up their 2005 theatrical hit Sin City with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Here I’m going to take a look at Frank Miller’s graphic novel of the same name.
The long awaited sequel to Sin City is coming out at the end of the summer, but not before it makes headlines for butting heads with the MPAA. The issue stems from the new one sheet poster featuring Eva Green in a rather revealing “robe”. The MPAA sites several complaints, including the “curve under the breast”. Dimension Films has stated it is working with the MPAA to come up to a compromise on the poster so we should expect to see a modified version soon. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For comes out August 22.
It’s Eva Green, so at this point, a quick Google search is way more revealing than this poster. Lighten up MPAA.
If you enjoyed X-Men: Days of Future Past but are puzzled by the maze that is X-Men continuity, well then Comics Alliance has got some great jumping on points throughout the entirety of X-Men history. Some of my personal favorites are Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men, Mike Carey’s run on X-Men, Chris Claremont’s run on Uncanny X-Men and Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men. To be perfectly honest though, I would recommend any of the listed jumping on points, since they are all awesome stories or runs.
Even the 90’s have some good stuff, you just have to look harder to find it.
Finally, we’ve got a summer reading list from the newest member of Sourcerer’s writing staff, CompGeekDavid. I have read or am currently reading everything on this list, so I can say with confidence that every title is worth your time. I’m especially keen on the Abnett/Lanning Guardians of the Galaxy which provides a lot of the basis for this summer’s blockbuster.
Marvel 1602 was one of the first trade paperbacks I bought at NYCC back in 2007.
