Shannie and I saw Sucker Punch over the weekend. It was mindless fun. The visuals are awesome, some really cool fight scenes and an awesome style to the whole thing. I read some of the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes which pretty much bash the film from one end down the other. The thing I found funny about them is most of them say its a mess, or hard to follow. One moron dyke looking reviewer bashed it because it didn’t have some kind of PC rhetoric about female rape victims…its a fantasy action flick dumb ass. lol…good grief.
It’s actually really simple to follow once you make the connections of what they are doing. It’s basically a video game plot. Get past this level, get a key or some other item you’ll need to get out of the place in the real world. In that respect it is pretty basic. I was expecting at least a little more finess or cleverness in the way he channeled the connecting elements from the dream world to reality…but there was none. It was really basic story telling 101, but it did the job and was still fun. If you want to see something in the ball park of reading an old Heavy Metal Graphic Magazine…than this is it. It’s mindless entertainment, but its fun…and sexy.
I picked up this bad boy at Calumet today. A Manfrotto 504HD head and tripod system. The Hercules tripod I have is awesome, but it doesn’t sit any lower than over the waist so I needed something that can fill in a lower perspective but still have the girth for supporting video rigs. It came with a really cool case as well.
Well as far as I know we’ll be doing SbiG this week as long as Cornbread’s in. So what do ya say Bread Machine? Are you in or what? Let us know and we’ll do it up on Thursday.
