Do you mean the Chin Affleck (tm) version of DAREDEVIL? The one where John Favreau was totally wasted as the best friend and Collin Farrell was at his campiest as 8-Ball?

That was just painful.

And I agree with Smith on SIN CITY: all sizzle, no steak, no humor, no substance.

Woohoo. Can't wait to see him sink his teeth into Chandler.

Is it too late to get Bruce Willis to play Marlowe?

  Wow, I guess some people really don't like Frank Miller. While I'm not
  saying he's right for Chandler, I've really liked a lot of his work --
  Daredevil, Electra, Ronin, too, and Sin City. Sure, he got
  progressively more over the top, increasing style over substance, but
  what style. Yeah, I know, Will Eisner and Alex Toth did the high
  contrast black and white style with substance, but hey, over-the-top has
  its place, too. Enjoyed the Sin City movie, too.
