'Sin City' Sins

[NOTE: Until the College of Cardinals elects the new SUPERFRANKENSTEIN, guest columnists will fill this space. Today's contributor is The Hot Parts Guy, Commander of God's Guide To The Hot Parts, the internet ministry that fights Hollywood indecency by describing it and describing it until you just gotta have it. CAUTION: Contains SPOILERS like "heads of five disembodied women mounted as trophies, victims of cannibalism, repeatedly."]

Typically an R-rated films requires two or three log sheets to record all the issues of assault on morality and decency. Sin City required 7 1/2 log sheets. Very few of the nearly 1000 films we have analyzed have earned a CAP final score of 100 (the best score possible) and very few films have earned a CAP final score of zero (the worst possible score). Sin City earned a final score of zero...
