Saw a preview screening tonight, and boy was it ever violently entertaining. Classic film noir, beautifully shot. Does anyone know which section of the film that Tarantino did, since it was a sign of how far Rodriguez has matured that his work is easily on par with that of a master.



I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: while you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits." --- President Jed Bartlett, The West Wing

You glossed over the important question.

Where was Carla Gugino's nudity?

An article I read a few days ago (the link currently escapes me) says Tarantino came in only to help with one sequence, charged the studio the grand total of $1 for his work, and received the "special guest director" credit as a result. The lot of the article was on Rodriguez flipping off the DGA so he could give Miller a co-director credit on the basis of lifting many of Miller's panels straight to the shot.

An hour later... From Ebert's (early) **** review:
    Originally posted by Roger Ebert
    Tarantino because he directed one brief scene on a day when Rodriquez was determined to wean him away from celluloid and lure him over the dark side of digital. (It's the scene in the car with Owen and Del Toro, who has a pistol stuck in his head.)

Oh, it's well worth it. Between her, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Jamie King, Alexis Bledel and an assortment of other lovely ladies, this might be the most attractive cast of the year (not to mention some Clive Owen for the ladies). Even Brittany Murphy looked decent, and she usually looks like a drug addict.

Fun fact: Carla Gugino is the only actor to appear in both Sin City and Spin City.

AMAZING FILM.

Visually fantastic, the casting is amazing, and the dialogue is excellent. Be advised, though, that this is a really, really, REALLY violent film. Really. Much more violence than nudity, but the girls in the film are great-looking and all have cool character quirks.

Funny Moment: At one point, Gail (Rosario Dawson) calls Dwight (Clive Owen) Lancelot. That got a laugh out of everyone in the theatre, since Clive Owen was in King Arthur not a few months ago.

Just saw it last night, and WOW this was one incredible movie. Everyone hit the notes of their character perfectly, Carla Gugino was looking mighty fine, the black & white stlye with various colors just worked superbly, and I really couldn't have asked for a more entertaining time, heh.

Funny Moment: Anything Mickey Rourke's character did, heh.

Saw it last night. Mickey Rourke's character was indeed incredible, and that section was the best of the three in the film (for me at least). Only thing I didn't like was Michael Madsen, who I thought put in an absolutely dreadful performance. Thankfully, though, he wasn't around too much.

And how underrated is Nick Stahl? Incredible.

Good movie...for the question asked earlier, I believe Tarantino directed the part with Aoki, Owen, and Del Toro.

Alba..so fine...and Gugino and King...bangin bodies..

I also think Elijah Wood turned in an underrated performance...dude was insane...

Nick Stahl's first sequence seemed really similar to "Disturbing Behavior".

But all in all good movie.

Loved it. And Carla Gugino is SMOKING. Something tells me that the scene of her stopping at her dresser is going to be the most freeze-framed DVD scene EVER.

Edit: Tarantino directed the car-ride scene with Benicio Del Toro and Clive Owen, for which he was paid the princely sum of $1.

I positively loved it. It felt like I was reading a comic book, not watching a movie, and that made for a really unique movie experience. Also, Mickey Rourke was fighting a guy named Rourk - how fun is that?
The couples on both sides of me left in the middle of the movie and they weren't the only ones. If this movie wasn't black and white it would have been NC-17 for sure, and I'm surprised they could get away with some of the "Yellow Bastard" stuff and still have an R rating. Me, I like my fight scenes ridiculously gruesome, but this movie is not for the faint of heart. And for the love of all that is holy, DO NOT TAKE YOUR KIDS TO SEE THIS!
But for fans of blood, comics and Rutger Hauer I guarantee a fun time.

Lets see, now I can finally come out and say that yes, I went and saw all three SPY KIDS simply for my love of the beautiful Ms Carla and not seem like a complete perv!

Second, the guy next to me had his 8 year old son with him. On the way out, the kid was talking about all the killings, and I told the dad somebody should call child protective services on him.

Good movie.

Also, Michael Madsen proves once again, that if Quentin isnt writing his lines and telling him how to say them, he is a shitty actor.

I never thought Alba was that hot. Jeezus how do you look THAT smoking in black and white?
