Movie Reviews: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For + 2 others

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (2014)
Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta and others star in this highly stylised sequel that no-one cared about. People have bitter tales to tale. There is no moral good or emotional ballast. This city is full of social problems, weariness, mutual paranoia, people nursing grudges, great despair, deliberate provocations and people being cold and self-regarding.

Alba plays a stripper who never strips, people make grave mistakes and violence is a regrettable necessity. This is all noir and exquisitely pathetic types with defining sadness. People have stone faced deliberation and Bruce Willis continues to fade slowly and inexorably from greatness. People end up on the moral scrapheap. This was okay if not utterly compelling. People have girl problems and forlornness and everything sours into disillusionment.

Lady Gaga shows up. There is dangerous meddling and a bad guy has pompous conceit and predatory instincts for self-aggrandisement. The stripper goes delusional and there is moral turpitude. There is violence and a downer ending and minimum honesty and determined hatred.

Best Lines:
“You can’t drive 2 blocks in Sin City without coming across a saloon. The bad kind.”

“I got no reason at all to be nice to you.”

“Selfish slut.”

“Your present company is low.”

“Unpleasant business.”

“Freeze pervert.”

“A ratty dive full of horny drunks.”

“She was a whore. Not a very good one.”

“Make him good and dangerous.”

Sin City (2005)
OTT.

Best Line:
“It’s a place where very bad things have been going on for a long time. Generations.”

~
The Cable Guy (1996)
Ha! This is an okay tale of urban bleakness and the resulting wreckage.

American Horror Story: Roanoke part 2 Reviewed

Chapter 4
Matt and Shelby have deepening mistrust and mutual peril and underlying purposefulness. Mr Piggy lurks. There are toxic accusations and paranoid mistrust and dissent. There is dark magic afoot. Elias the exposition spewing loon shows up. Shelby is useless and repellent. This ep causes ever-diminishing interest. The medium meets the witch (Lady Gaga) and has flashbacks to the not so lost colony. The Butcher had displeasure and indignation. There are implacable enemies, back-story and no unfettered mercy. The ill-fated fools are unstable and pathetic.

Best Lines:
“An offering so great, it consecrated this ground.”

“Pocket book of chants.”

Chapter 5
Evan Peters prances and overacts with exuberance as a rich aristo. A historian who can’t act lurks. There is a flashback to grimmer times. The Polks show up and they have antipathy to people who aren’t like them. Shelby and Matt are horribly ungrateful. The Polks are cannibals. Matt and Shelby face utter ruin. Is this all inventive lies? Who paid for Shelby’s emergency medical care and where was she tended to?

Chapter 6
The reality show depicted in Chapters 1to 5 was the TV success story of 2015. Now Matt and Shelby are separated and the horrible show runner wants to do a reunion. Did Lee kill her husband? There is a lack of compassion toward Agnes, the actress who played The Butcher and had a breakdown as a result. There is a The Butcher action figure sight gag. The show runner is a massive jerk.
There was romance on set and a shock reveal. The dead walk. Shelby has an entitled look. After all the madcap lunacy, why would anyone return to the house? It is not rational or considered. Nobody is especially likeable. Lee has real concern for Monet (the actress who played her). There is mutual loathing as people act acrimoniously. Shelby slept with Dominic (who played Matt). There is fighting and death. This was good. Alas poor Rory.

Best Lines:
“It’s familiar but it’s different.”

“I have no intention of finding out who that is.”

“Is that bad?”

Chapter 7
Agnes has cracked and is mythologizing herself. Dominic wants to be a reality TV villain. There is death, Polks and cannibalism. There is no emotional truth and Shelby is the worst. This was okay.

Best Lines:
“I think he’s dead.”
“You think?”
