Oh...and for anyone who's interested here is the 5 min short Rodriguez made as a 'promo' to Frank Miller to hopefully get his permission to make a
feature of the Sin City stories. He made it entirely out of his own money and said if Miller didn't like it at least he'd have a cool short to show
friends. This scene will now open the film, plus it also has a few other clips from it.
Looking at it initially worried me as a result of what I said earlier, not knowing if the noir of the comics is going to come across cheesy or not
which I kind of felt it did here. However, this soon washed over when I realised Josh Hartnett is the definition of wooden acting, and likely it is
he who is cheesy and not the material...I hope.
Plus he just looks too young for this kind of thing, when he says "care for a smoke" I just wanted to slap him and tell him to get home to his
