Here Come The Cold Again, Falling On My Head Like A Memory...

I almost shut down my computer without posting!  It wouldn’t have been much of a loss; I was mostly going to complain about how cold it’s been.  It’s not the coldest weather I’ve ever experienced, but there’s something about how the wind just rips all the warmth away that makes me swear.  I’ll be glad when we get back above freezing.

Watched Sin City.  It got rave reviews.  I was only moderately impressed.  Sure, I liked how it used the visual style of graphic novels; there are some neat shots that are obviously modeled on specific images.  But the three story arcs are barely more than cliché-ridden comic-book vignettes. Power struggles and revenge.  With a lot of carnage.  Never seen THAT before, now have we?  Perhaps Frank Miller’s print work has more depth and complexity, but I wasn’t whelmed.
