Love is in the air everywhere you look around. You’ve got the best of my love. I just can’t get enough of your love, babe. I don’t care who you are, where you’re from, what you did, as long as you love me. I don’t care what they say I’m in love with you. All you need is love. Might as well face it you’re addicted to love. Come and get your love. Can you feel the love tonight?

You can’t?

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. And there’s nothing wrong with that even if all the giant displays of red hearts and fluffy things and greeting cards and hand holding couples all over the mall are trying to tell you otherwise. There’s a lot of love in the world that doesn’t fit into cardboard boxes or perfectly co-ordinate with an arbitrary date in February.

Contrary to the current array of movies playing on television (AMC is playing Titanic back-to-back for 18 hours straight. The boat sank in 3.) there are also a lot of love stories in film. If you’re looking for something to watch tonight but don’t feel like crying alone while watching the Notebook (the tired stereotype of single women on this day), let me recommend some alternatives.

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For / Eva Green

It’s been nearly a decade since we last visited Sin City. I liked that movie. It’s not amazing art but it kinda works for me. It was stunning on the big screen and I enjoyed it when I re-watched it and even though I have a strong dislike for Frank Miller I do love the work of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. This time around though it doesn’t work.

Review: 300: Rise of an Empire

300 Rise of an Empire

When the original 300 came out I remember at first liking it but upon further viewings it became more and more problematic for me. See, Frank Miller is a right wing nut job and 300 is, at best, a set of pretty 1 dimensional characters in a story that is hero worship of what is effectively a selfish and fascist society. 300: Rise of an Empire is interesting then in that in addition to having better developed characters (antagonists especially) acknowledges that fact and says _”that’s what they’re doing, that’s not really cool, but maybe we can use their machismo BS to our advantage”.

300 Rise of an Empire

Remember 300? Zach Snyder broke big on that movie based on a Frank Miller graphic novel. It’s not exactly high art, but it was pretty fun and certainly has a distinctive style.

Well now there is another movie coming and here is the first trailer and poster. Let’s take a look!
