Finally saw The Spirit

It strikes me as odd that I mentioned Terminator: Salvation in this post about The Spirit because it seemed to me like the latter came out almost a year prior to the former. It was actually only a mere 5 months (a few days less, actually), but it seemed like a virtual eternity for me.

Anyway, I saw The Spirit over at a friend’s house in full Blu-Ray definition, and wasn’t all that impressed. I think the main reason was that I thought it was going to be a more serious movie, and it was actually more “comic book”-y and funny than I’d expected. It’s funny how much of my enjoyment of a movie is determined by my expectations of it. Nevertheless, I’m afraid it’s not a movie that I could recommend to anyone. Maybe if I’ve ready the comics/graphic novels, I would have been more into it, but it just didn’t seem to all fit together for me.

    Yeah we missed that one too. One the one hand, stylistically it looked like it might be neat, but on the other hand…

      Yeah, the style was good, but I've heard that 300 and Sin City are a lot better movies if you want the animated live-action style (haven't seen either of those even though I've been meaning to for a while).
