Sucker Punch and a few other movies

Got back from Sucker Punch a little bit a go. I'm still rather mind-blown and just "wow" at the moment. Because the movie is just WOW.

Granted, it's extremely anime in style and story, so I can completely understand why it's not getting a fair shake. This movie is not what you think it is, and I love that about it. It's not typical to American movies in any fashion, and that's also to love about it.

I can't say much more than that I love it, and am fully behind this movie. Can I recommend it? Only if you like anime, or movies that just turn your perception on end. Don't go see this if you're looking for an action eyegasm, because you will not be satisfied.


Last weekend, I saw The Man From Earth. I only knew what was in the description, and decided to give it some time. It was so worth it. There was an extremely literary feel, without being boring. It was like reading a book, really. The story and concept were good, and the ending completely sold it.

Also watched Brick, after years of not putting it on. Wow. Take a pulp PI movie, and set it in high school. It was well-done in that respect, and quite entertaining.

  2. I'll probably try seeing Sucker Punch once it's in dollar theater. (That's what I can afford! Ha ha.) It seems to be popular for the audience it was made for--and not so much for everyone else. =P

  3. Eric: it sure took me by surprise, compared to the trailer. In our house, we figure Zack Snyder was trying to get everyone with a sucker punch, making the trailer so different.

    Rose: I like when movies are true to themselves and their audience. Better than selling out and trying to make everyone happy.
