> Lastly, the whole tone of your post is what set me off. You're coming off as rude and pushy. It's obvious this upset you, but don't bring people into your critique of a story.

I'll admit to opinionated(cause that's the god's honest truth), but I don't believe it's rude to have strong opinions about entertainment, and the people who feed into it. A good message board should be about debate.

It would be more accurate to say that JLA 6 annoyed me(it never got as far as being upset). And this is why: instead of getting a well-choreographed fight scene, Meltzer gave us gore instead. He went for cheap shock value instead of quality combat, and he did it in a way that reminds me of Frank Miller(who I think is a closet sadist). By the by, if you do appreciate quality fight scenes, go to your local comic store and pick-up the back issue of Avengers Annual#10 - one of the best fight sequences ever.

As for Sin City, doesn't it strike you as curious that the film-makers went for explicit and gritty realism on almost every scene except one: the scene where Jessica Alba gets horse-whipped. In that scene she isn't bloodied, her clothes aren't torn to shreds, and she doesn't look the least bit distressed. Rather, she's sweaty, calm, and doesn't scream at all. They deliberately eroticized that scene. And that doesn't strike you as sexist?
