SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR isn't as well-structured as the first, the newer material just lacks the punch of the previously established canon, and the film ends quite sloppily, but it's just as gruesome and gloriously stylized as its predecessor and looks spectacular in 3D. It's at its best when focused on Mickey Rourke (who makes an art form of whuppin' ass), the growling Josh Brolin, and the unholy goddess of death Eva Green...good GAWD does she serve a feast for the eyes. For a sequel almost ten years removed from the last installment that arrived probably a few years too late, it could have been better, but we got something pretty damn okay.

And now, off to the theater for some sinful cinema.

Sukiyaki Western Django is a very weird movie, and the weirdest thing I've noted on this third viewing (apart from Tarantino's presence in it at all) are the various subtle ways it parodies the spaghetti western. That it's an all-Japanese cast speaking English rather than an Italian cast dubbed in English; the trumpet player who actually appears on screen to play the Morricone-esque score at one point; the reference made to the lead gunman "playing Yojimbo" between the warring clans, and so on. Those touches might be genius if the film's tone were more consistent, but it never quite knows if it wants to be serious or parodic.

The western marathon rolls on with a revisit of Takeshi Miike's Sukiyaki Western Django.

I've discovered a new shirt vendor called TeePublic, where one simply uploads a design and BOOM, three-day live sale with no approval process. I've started up my storefront and placed my Smurfs/True Detective mashup "Blue King" up for sale! https://www.teepublic.com/show/56053-blue-king

Flight to NYC booked. The return trip is obnoxiously early in the morning, but at least I won't be rushing between connecting planes going either way. It seriously should not be so difficult to find a reasonably-timed direct flight to a city that heavily-travelled.

So now that I've rewatched Sin City in prep for A Dame to Kill For, here's the thing bugging me about the new movie: In the first movie, Marv's story clearly takes place after Hartigan's, and the last time Nancy sees Marv is when he drops off Wendy before storming Cardinal Rourk's residence; after that, he's either in the hospital or in jail until his execution. So how is he involved in Nancy's new storyline where she chops off her hair and scars herself up to take out Senator Rourk? But then I remember how Frank Miller lost his mind and everything, so it'll be no real surprise if ADTKF just completely sets fire to Sin City's already tangled continuity.

Is Marv involved with that story? He is definitely involved with Dwight's story which predates the first movie. Nancy is seeing Hartigan, maybe she's seeing Marv the same way.

I thought that too at first, but there are clips of Nancy's story where he's actually interacting (as in physically) with more than just her. The only thing I can think of to explain that is maybe it'll turn out she's in an asylum imagining the whole thing.

Oh right, there's a new Sin City movie coming out this week. Better watch the first one again.

McLintock! doesn't exactly have the friendliest view of its female cast, but I suppose that's just it being a product of its time. Regardless, John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara's own the show with their constant sniping, and the few action sequences are entertainingly slapstick. Far more a comedy than a shoot-em-up like the rest of the westerns I've been watching (even Blazing Saddles), but a welcome watch.

Heaven forbid I ever have a black eye, I now know exactly what to say when someone asks about it: "Nobody gave it to me, I WON it!"

"Pilgrim, you caused a lotta trouble this morning, mighta gotten somebody killed, and somebody oughta belt you in the mouth! But I won't...I won't. The hell I won't!" I haven't seen a lot of John Wayne movies in my life, but I was certain I'd at least seen where that quote was from. Glad to know I was right.

The western marathon rolls on with a first-time (in many, MANY years) viewing of "McLintock!"

Okay, I just watched the "Peter Meets His Father" deleted scene on the ASM2 Blu-ray, and man, did they make the right choice in cutting it. It does the movie no favors at all. But to add a little unintentional hilarity, they use the Grey Havens theme from Return of the King for a temp score.

I'm not going to fault Sony for attempting to play the long game where The Amazing Spider-Man series is concerned, but they need to take more notes from Marvel Studios; their ultimate crime in ASM2 is just going too big too soon. All that said, I still find way too much to enjoy here to really gripe about anything serious. Jim Law put it thusly: "I came to see Spider-Man do Spider-Man shit, and I got that." I can't add much more to that.

I went in with a lot of trepidation to the film, but the overall characterization of Spider-Man saved a lot of the films flaws for me. To this day I haven't overall been satisfied with a Spidey film, which makes me sad.
