Trailer went up today it's by Zack Snyder, so no doubt, people will have issues. But I like it so far.

Synopsis: Set in the 1950s, it tells the story of Baby Doll, who is trying to hide from the pain caused by her evil stepfather and lobotomy.

She ends up in mental institution in Brattleboro, Vermont and while there she starts to imagine an alternate reality. She plans to escape from that imaginary world but to do that she needs to steal five objects before she is captured by an unknown adversary. She has 5 days to escape before being lobotomized.

In order to cope with the situation, she enters the hyper-real world of her imagination, and the lines between reality and dream begin to blur. She is joined with friends who are inmates from the institution. Lessons learned in the said fantasy world could help the girls escape their real-world fate

I have to say I had to watch it a few times because it's so dense visually. Looks pretty good. I haven't been disappointed by a ZS movie yet. And yes that does include Watchmen.

I read the entire watchmen comic the day before watching the movie and thought it was spot on! I didnt want to see a giant squid so I thought the ending reflected a well reasoned change. It made for some continuity problems, but... overall I agree. ZS is good in my book.

I haven't gotten around to watching the trailer, and haven't read anything about this movie yet. But girl #2's buttcheeks hanging out like that will lure me into the theatre by themselves.

Caught it at a midnight screening last night. I'm sure you've read all the negative reviews by now and they're all pretty much spot on: vapid characters, shallow writing, uninspired action, etc. To that I'll add that it's very apparent to me that Snyder just doesn't know how to use music in a film, which is especially apparent and disappointing here as "Sucker Punch" is basically a thinly veiled musical. Every track he chose was just so obvious and really kinda lame.

I mean do we really need another dark, edgy, post modern flick using "Where is my mind?" again? I thought "Fight Club" put the kibosh on this one years ago. The only highlight in this regard was a sort of big band version of Roxy Music's "Love is the drug." Thing is-it's tacked on at the very end when most of the audience has probably up and left the theater. A matinee/rental at best. Infact, I'd recommend you skip this and just rent "Heavy Metal" because when you get right down to it "Sucker Punch" is alot like a live action remake of the seminal 80's adult animation only not as fun and with way less breasts.

Went and saw it this afternoon, by myself, of course.
Didn't wanna risk bringing a person with me in-case they resented me afterwards for making them come.

If I was to sum up the movie* in one word, it would be "lobotomy".
When you see it, plot-wise* you'll understand what I mean,
and also because 'Sucker Punch' will leave you feeling like you've just had one yourself.

("*"--means these words by their intended definitions are being used very, very loosely here.)


I weep for what could be in-store for Kal-El.

I’m not worried. In the past, Snyder has shown that he can deliver when he gets a good script.

Time to be the other side of the coin.

I liked it. I liked it for what it is. I liked it for the vFX. I liked it for the subtext and the dive into the human consciousness. I liked it for daring to be experimental instead of a freaking sequel or remake.

Something that's really been bothering me lately but didn't really occur to me immediately after seeing the movie was the fact that no context is given as to why Babydoll imagines the stuff we see in the flick (the mecha, the Middle Earth-y stuff, etc).

Unless of course she isn't imagining those things at all and the suggestion is that it's we the audience who are projecting those mental images as she (off screen) bumps and grinds (which would make sense seeing as how most us are seeped in "geek culture" and are bringing our own baggage to the screening).

I'm kinda hoping that a fan of the movie writes up an analysis with this interpretation-it would make for some interesting reading that's for sure.
