FroHam was that you mentioned in /Filmcast After Dark Ep. 102?

Yeah. lol. I forgot about that. I don't even remember what I said that was mentioned.

Something about Sky Captain paving the way for Sin City and 300, I think. ;D

Oh right. First of all, Sky Captain is not great, but still entertaining. The main thing is that's it's one of the most important films released in the last decade when you consider what it demonstrated with regards to digital effects. Suddenly it was possible to create an entire world within a film with only very basic sets and costumes.

I believe Lucas was doing that in Episode I (1999) and II (2002), before "Sky Captain" (2004) was released?

Yeah, that's giving Sky Captain a little too much credit. There was nothing sudden about it, that kind of stuff had been done for years before then. If anything I would credit it for bringing the possibilities of a highly stylized world to mainstream attention, something that was definitely capitalized on in Sin City and 300.

Has the Movie Dictator Club podcast received any fan/hate mail yet?

Despite not using digital effects(to my knowledge), Lars von Trier's "Europa" is absolutely the forerunner for "Sin City" by combining black and white and color, and using back projection instead of a greenscreen combined with the knowing approach to it's genre (Though I think "Europa" is a masterpiece, and "Sin City" is just very good), and it even influenced "Schindler's List". Spielberg apparently even offered von Trier a job in Hollywood!

Whoa, I have absolutely no recollection of this. Back to the archives...

You need Jordan, Jesse Go! in your life.
