              as StinkiHam can attest, I MAY make errors, but I've got the quickest edit finger in the business!!

                From what I've seen, movies that are kind of animated (the people are still kind of real) do not do well at the box office. The weird look of the people, they're not real and they're not cartoon, kind of freaks people out. I saw about 5 minutes of Sin City on cable and I couldn't watch it. The characters were freaking me out. A similar thing happened with Polar Express a couple of years ago.

                Some people do enjoy these types of movies, but I'm predicting a lot of hype and a quick death at the box office.

                  Saw it (it's not animated in any respect, just edited with sepia filters into a high contrast effect)

                  300, aka Sin City 480 BC, is an arrested development male adolescent's wet dream (excuse the crassness).

                  Did the ancient Spartans really go to war dressed in long flowing red capes (seemed a little unwieldy for the battlefield) and leather panties (latent homoeroticism)?

                  Was Xerxes really a flaming drag queen, complete with eyeshadow, mascara, and pierced everythings?

                  The extras looked like rejects from the Lord of the Rings editing room floor!

                  The gratuitous sex and violence was jarring to my 21st Century sensibilities, until I re-realized that this was a true story and the real battle-field was probably far gorier that even depicted her (the usual decapitations and severed arms and legs still twitching), and the courage displayed by those warriors even greater than what was 2-dImensionally portrayed here.

                  It was certainly a visually stunning spectacle and the music was awesome, so I left the theater begrudgingly appreciating the effort. I think it will be a monster hit at the Box Office, but who knows?

                    Hey Texas, tonight I saw Black Snake Moan and you GOTTA go see it!!! It has authentic Mississippi Delta ol'-time blues all through it. I GUARANTEE you (and any other old-school blues fans) will LOVE it. It was a great movie.

                        Well, he DOES say the MF word a lot in this one too, but even milquetoast-me thought it was entirely necessary in the context of the movie and songs!

                              I plan on it.

                              "Black Snake Moan" was actually written and recorded by a Texan, Blind Lemon Jeffeson in 1926. The "King Of The Delta" Charley Patton (no not Robert Johnson) didn't record until 29.

                              If ya want to hear what I consider to be the delta blues at it's very best , check out "Mississippi Jailhouse Groan" by Rube Lacy. Cat only recorded one record before turning to preaching the word of God leaving that Devil's music behind.
