Excitement and Dread

I know I've said in the past that I could do without any more comic book movies, but I will admit to being a little excited about the upcoming Sin City. I've only read a few of the Frank Miller comics it's based on, but I do consider myself a Frank Miller fan. And the trailer looks pretty cool. I think the idea of really making it look like the comic could ultimately be a bad idea--intense style is often used to make up for a lack of good storytelling and direction (*cough* Tim Burton *cough*). But if Rodriguez can pull it off, it will be awesome.

BUT....I have to say I'm not too happy about the presence of Bruce Willis. And these words just fill me with dread: "Special Guest Director Quentin Tarantino."

I am so looking forward to this that the preview made me cry.

This is going to be fucking awesome. I've read all of sin city except for "That Yellow Bastard" (which is one of the vignettes or whatever that are interwoven into the film).

Seriously, if this doesn't kick ass i'm gona cry twice as hard.
