Cinematic Charm or Chaotic Confusion? Sucker Punch review in 100!

Another week, another movie!

Real quick, I need to inundate you with links. After those, enjoy my 100 word review of Sucker Punch.

Crits for Water - Awesome.

Books for Japan at Fire and Ice - Scroll down, look on the right side.

A to Z Blogfest - Who says you can't still join? You know you want to (cough...peer pressure...cough).

Now Starring Blogfest - Cast your characters on April 25. Big fun. Go do. Ugh.

Peeta - Not officially cast, but I'd love to hear your thoughts. You know I love me some Peeta.


And now, SUCKER PUNCH. My 'C' entry for the A to Z Challenge.



Emaciated dolls locked in a mental institution.
Wait.
Exotic dancers entertaining privileged men in a snazzy night club.
Wait.
Gun/sword/bomb-toting, (almost) indestructible sepia warriors in fantasy land?
A bit slow to start, but Sucker Punch packs a, well, punch of sorts once it gets going. Baby Doll’s racing to avoid a lobotomy and the others (Jena Malone’s the real star) just want to be free. Too much slow motion/extreme close-ups/CGI in many parts, but the villain goes to a new level of shudder-inducing, creeptastic sleazebag that’s well worth watching. Decent (somewhat confusing) story, gorgeous girls, and plenty of pyrotechnics. *grin*

That's it! Have you seen Sucker Punch? Any thoughts? We're probably looking at Limitless, Arthur, or Source Code next (hello, Variety). And Water for Elephants at the end of the month. Squeal!

Thanks for this post, I so want to see this. I'm there as soon as it comes out in Australia.

Wow - thank you for sharing! Fellow "A to Z" participant here. This sounds like an interesting movie. I look forward to reading more from you.

I couldn't stand seeing your followers hovering there on 99!99, not 100. There's something about that nice round 100 that is more aesthetically pleasing that 99. :)

And, of course, the fact that I love all felines (but especially HRH Theodora, my owner!) any blog with "cheetah" in the header is an automatic must-follow!

I haven't seen Sucker Punch but I thought it looked cool. I've heard good things about Source Code. I'd like to see Water For Elephants but I probably won't until it's out on DVD.

Congratulations on reaching 100 followers!!

Sounds like an interesting movie, although I don't know if I'd buy a ticket.

Although, I would, just because of what you said about the baddie.

I like your idea of the Now Starring Blogfest so when I work out just who's going to star in my June release of 'His Leading Lady' I'll sign up!

Your review was really entertaining, btw :)

I haven't seen Sucker Punch but other people have been raving about it. I'm not sure if or when I'll get the chance to see it.

The villain's worth the watch. I get the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it. :)
