Aw Mickey you're so fine!

April 18, 2005


And I don't mean no Mickey bleedin' Mouse either. I'm talking about The Great, The Sweaty, The Only, Mickey Rourke. I grudingly paid $15 to watch Sin City yesterday and it was well worth it.

Oh Mickey, I used to think he was such a greaseball, especially after watching Wild Orchid on sensual weekend programming a few years ago. He played a sweaty middle aged, 80s style Humbert Humbert out to seduce a naive (to put it lightly) virgin. The movie is fraught with close ups of a very creepy (and sweaty) Rourke, whispering sweet somethings to a (likely pre) pubescent girl. Gross. But the man has completely redeemed himself a few times over with Sin City.

He looks better than ever (the rubber mask disguise hides any sweaty skin) and is out to kick some serious ass. A very entertaining movie indeed (Sin City NOT Wild Orchid), substantial level of gore and nudity, fantastic production, perfect score. The only minor faux pas can be summed up in two words, Brittany Murhphy. Oy Veh. Go back to Disney planet. Highly cringe-worthy performance from her but it's only a few minutes long.

Show stealers, aside from Sweats McGee, are Elijah Wood and Nick Stahl (of Bully fame). Stahl seems to be finding his niche as bad little boy. Sweet Elijah has probably done wonders for his career with this role, no rotting in hobbit hell for this boy. Honorable mention: Rosario Dawson and Clive Owen, when they kiss, guns in hand...hoooweee, it looks like it hurts.

Before I spill the beans on the entire plotline...ta ta!

I agree with you completly on that movie. I actually said some similar things about Mickey Rourke on my blog. Sadly I saw the showing of Wild Orchid (I"m sure it was Cinemax) and was pretty disturbed by it myself. I think that was his downfall.....too many soft core pornos.

I am terribly sorry that you too had to witness the torture that is Wild Orchid. Poor Mickey, David Duchovny did a much better job at that route. First Red Shoe Diaries (directed by Zalman King who also did Wild Orchid) then something respectible, like chasing aliens. Mickey's got the hang of it now...
