Ah, the more I watch James Franco, the more I love his films. Bar Spring Breakers, which didn’t interest me one bit, his comedies have all been ones that I could appreciate well and found myself laughing at uproariously. Seth Rogen is his foil once again, and they make a pretty good comedy duo.
I wish I could forget Spider-Man 3 and The Green Hornet though.
Well, it’s another action film by Denzel Washington, whom, let’s be honest, hasn’t really made a great film for a good number of years now. But it looks like an interesting action banking on the same concept as Taken that brought Liam Neeson into mainstream action hero fame at ages when most people wish to retire. And I do like Denzel’s films, as cliché as some of them might be. Pedigree is pedigree.
Not the funniest music video around, or the best, but it sends out an important message. And it’s a pretty well-written song, to be fair.
OH YEA! I loved the first Sin City, and this looks like a fantastic continuation of Robert Rodriguez’s best work IMO. It’s not the most palatable of styles, but it’s something more unique amidst the raft of gloriously colourful CGI that every other film uses these days.
Also, the plot. The stories that Frank Miller crafted were gorgeously dark and moody, and I loved the gritty tone of it all. This is less of a sequel than most films, given that the original Sin City was a series of stories made almost directly from Frank Miller’s graphic novels. I doubt Robert Rodriguez will change the successful formula, and with Miller also helping out in the direction of the film, I eagerly wait in anticipation for the film’s release.
Probably online or something though. If the MPAA is banning Eva Green’s promotional poster for being too sexy, the Singapore government is going to be cutting swathes of the film. Just sayin’.
