The fact that a sequel to Sin City came out this year is actually really weird to me. The first one came out in 2005, and for those of you who can’t count, that’s 9 years ago. In entertainment years, that is an eternity and a half. When the first movie came out the most recent Batman movie was Batman and Robin and the most recent Marvel movie was Ang Lee’s Hulk. Two of the main-ish actors have died, and a third retired from acting. The film landscape has changed so much that it’s basically unrecognizable. Even in the lead up I got the distinct feeling that the moment for this movie might have passed. Still I did vow to keep that from influencing my opinion about this movie.
