Went Xmas day, and to say I was pleasantly surprised would be a huge understatement.
Yes, I went in with low expectations, but this movie rocked. Essentially a classic comic
book pasted to the big screen, as only Miller seems to be able to do.

Loved the many comic who's-who references. The ones that come to mind right away:

Iger Avenue (streen sign)
- after Jerry Iger, who I believe founded one of the first comic production shops in America
with Will Eisner

Ditko's ...? (on the back of the truck at the end)
- after Steve Ditko, famed artist best known for co-creating Spider-Man with Stan Lee

Donenfeld (character who commits suicide)
- character named after Harry Donenfeld, publisher who ran the original DC Comics (named
something else back then - even before it was National Periodical Publications).

Others anybody caught?
