I just don't believe that there's any way I'm not going to completely love Sin City. Think about it...

I've read and dug each and every one of Frank Miller's Sin City yarns.

Robert Rodriguez is one of my favorite directors... and HE loves Sin City.

The cast is unbelieveable.

The trailer rocks.

These new posters sweeten the deal.

2004: One Last Look
Saturday, January 1, 2005 10:50 AM
I hope that everyone made it to this side
of 2005 with a minimum of damage.

2004 was a good year and I'm hoping for even
better things in 2005. But before we leave '04 completely, I thought I'd give a brief rundown of
some of the highlights entertainment-wise
[at least for me]...

Movies: I loved the Dawn of the Dead
re-make and The Passion of the Christ. [Kinda strange that they were both about people who rose from the dead.]

Collateral was very good and Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and The Chronicles of Riddick were fun rides.

Several of the best movies that I saw in
2004 were older movies that I discovered
on DVD or cable.

The original Metropolis was stunning even 77 years after it was made.

And you know I love the whole tough guy - noir genre, so seeing movies like On Dangerous Ground, Brute Force and The Big Heat make my day.

TV: The Shield, 24, Survivor and West Wing continue to make my "Must See TV" list. And although Alias still hung in there, ER fell from the ranks. Lost soared to the top of the list and I enjoyed Boston Legal when I caught it.

Novels:The best were Portrait of a Murderer: The Jack the Ripper Case Closed by Patricia Cornwall, Double Play by Robert Parker, Sensei by John Donohue, and Rain Storm by Barry Eischer.

Comics: My favorite comic of the year was Grave Digger: The Scavengers by Christopher Mills and Rick Burchett. The writing and art meshed perfectly to create a comic that's impossible not to enjoy. If we don't get more Grave Digger stories from Mills and Burchett, then there's no justice.

My favorite graphic novel of the year was The Wicked West by Todd Livingston, Robert Tinnell and artist, Neil Vokes. Anyone who is a fan of westerns, horror or simply great graphic novels would love The Wicked West.

My favorite on-going series were The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman and Charles Adlard [which just keeps getting better and better] and 100 Bullets by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso.

Blogs: Mark Evanier's News from ME is required reading daily. He's funny, informative and blogs don't get any better. Jeff Parker's Mystifying Oracle and Mike Wieringo's blog don't appear daily but when they do, they're worth a read.

Breakfast: Was a three hour marathon session [and NO, we weren't eating the whole time] with my ole pal Jim Ivey last week. Jim will soon be 80 and we hadn't been able to get together in quite a while. Christmas Break seemed like the right time to clear my schedule and make a trip over to see "Jimbo" and I couldn't have asked for a better time. Jim seemed to enjoy it to. ; )

Now... on to 2005!

Anyone Going to SAHARA?
Monday, December 27, 2004 3:58 PM

The official site for Sahara has opened up with a Quicktime trailer.

While it looks like it's going to be a fun movie, it doesn't quite give me the feel I had when I read the bestseller of the same name by Clive Cussler.

For one thing Matthew McConaughey seems a bit young to be playing world adventurer Dirk Pitt. But if they're looking to build a tentpole out of this series, then younger is probably better.

The other thing that jumped out at me as a bit diferent than the book is how funny Steve Zahn is as Pitt's sidekick is. Don't get me wrong, there's a good mix of humor in the book, but the trailer really played it up... which again, may not be a bad thing.

And Penelope Cruz is always a plus!

Sin City Trailer
Monday, December 27, 2004 3:30 PM

Oh, man! I just can't wait
to see Sin City up on the big screen.

If you're a long time ZONE reader, you've [repeatedly] heard how much I love
Frank Miller's Sin City.

You also already know how juiced I became when I heard that Miller was teaming [as
co-director] with Robert Rodriguez to bring Sin City
to the big screen.

Then the cast started coming on board... Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Clive Owen, Benicio Del
, Rosario Dawson,
Elijah Wood...

How could it get any better?

Take a look at this trailer and you tell me!
