It was great fun, and Man On Fire was okay,
 but neither films were the best movie ever(that goes to Rushmore in my opinion),
The comics are even better than the film though.
I thought The Big Fat Kill was the best story in the film, but my favorite of the comics so far is The Hard Goodbye, although I've only read That Yellow Bastard and The Hard Goodbye.

The Hard Goodbye was good too. I thought That Yellow Bastatd was okay.

Phoenix Flames. No you didn't. I like Star Wars and I've seen Episode 4 maybe 30 odd times since 1977 and that's just the one film. I stopped counting at about 22 when I was 14 or 15 years old. I am now 35. Question: If you have watched the original Star Wars trilogy 392 times, which is around 114 days solid by the way, what do you do, how do you live, and how old are you? If what you say is true I have to worry about you.

Who the fuck would actually be sad enough to bother counting? I mean come on, you only have to read the site to know that I'm a massive Star Wars fan, but I haven't got a clue how many times I've seen it. It's probably over one hundred, counting all the TV showings and VHS editions, but I doubt it's anywhere near 300. There are far too many other movies to watch and things to do in life (working for one).

That's what I'm saying to myself too. I never watched my Episode II yet, because I never seen Episode I

i just rented SIN CITY today, and it was absolutely AWESOME...i'll have to give in and double dip, i mean, also, there's the rumors (and chances) that the CE re-release won't include the theatrical edition, therefore i'll double dip. im a sucker for special features...i double dip all the time. TITANIC...THE GRUDGE...WIZARD OF OZ...it goes on and on.

its jsut too good to wait another 4 to 5 months to buy.

gonna wait
As much as I liked Sin City, I'm going to wait for the special edition.  I don't want a bare bones edition!  That's why I never bought Batman and Batman Returns.  I knew they were going to re-release it as special edition eventually!  Now, when are we getting Kill Bill like QT promised???

Quentin Tarintino abandoned the project the last I heard.

QT or Weinsteins
Well, now that Miramax and the Weinsteins are over, who owns the rights to release the Kill Bill DVDs?

Disney (Universal) owns the right.  Harvey Weinstein and his Miramax Films partner and younger brother, Bob dissolve their 12-year contract with the Walt Disney Co.

Yeah, I'm a bit confused about that.  I read in so many different articles that the Weinsteins took most of the rights of most of the films they acquired with them, or Disney still has the rights to them as well.

I'm from NYC, so there are a couple of tiny hole in the wall stores that get new releases a couple of weeks before the actual date.  The only thing is, you have to pay retail price.

That's pretty sad if you want to pay more $ for 1 week earlier.  It's your money dude!

It's not. You can get them a thursday before it comes out. I have to pay retail price, too, but I don't live in New York
