Sucker Punch

MovieBob reviews Sucker Punch, which is "intelligent and moving, if utterly deranged."

Fine. I'll finally see fucking Watchmen Bob. Despite my lack of interest in it's material. And then see this right after.

Are you ever going to add your older reviews, like Watchmen and Star Trek to the Escape to the Movies archive, btw?

SON OF A *****!!!

I was going to see this movie tonight. We had everything planned. Then what happens? My friend sees its score on metacritic and "won't pay for a shitty movie" so now we're seeing Paul...


I WANT TO SEE THIS FUCKING MOVIE!!!!!!!

Hopefully I can persuade him otherwise...

EDIT: Ended up seeing it. Fucking amazing. The soundtrack was probably my favorite part, then the visuals. But Bob, I have a bone to pick with you. I mean, the commercials and trailers showed Germans, so I expected that. Someone hinted to me that they would be zombies, so I expected that too. But, I was blown away when I saw German-steampunk zombies!!!

Your review sounds just what my mother thought when we saw an extended sneak peek last night. Though instead of "intelligent and moving" she said "imaginative and artistic with a sprinkle of mild horror."(and she is aware its not horror)

So yeah we as a family might go see it for the awesome looking action, beautiful visuals, and how the main characters are all females fighting males for a change.

Paul was a pretty damned lazy movie, honestly. It was everything you'd predict it to be. SuckerPunch at least looks vaguely original. I'd try to convince him/her otherwise.

I remember going to watch a movie (think it was Scott pilgrim) and i became utterly hyped upp when i told my friends that this looks like a REALLY good movie they looked at me like I was mad (although you can't really blame them)

it still looks awesome and I'm going to see it tonight or tomorrow night

Interesting, this movie has interested me since you first mentioned it in the credits of one of your escape to the movies way back yonder. However, you are the first critic to say it is worth while most have been saying it is a contender for the worst movie of the year. I might give it a chance. Perhaps though bob you could maybe address more as to why there has been such poor reception of this movie and perhaps what you saw in the movie that perhaps others missed?

Pro Tip: If you want a movie to be successful, don't compare it favorably to Scott Pilgrim.

It's interesting how hollywood has been exploring dreams as of late... or concepts of reality. I wonder if that says anything about the current climate with the recession and all. Perhaps we all wish we could escape into our heads?


Anyway, sweet review. I will be seeing this :p

I'll be seeing it this weekend. Sounds pretty unique.
Edit: Yikes. It is getting destroyed by critics.

Urgh...I feel like I just lost the raging debate I've been having with my friends over whether or not this was a male fetish movie.

Prediction based on recent comment threads of Moviebob videos and articles: The second of the momentary images during the credits will get more attention than anything else in the entire review.

This review somehow sealed the deal even more on a movie I planned on seeing, come hell or high water.

What a coincidence, the ads play the trailer to the review.

Anyway, sorry Bob but eventhough it does look like it's worth watching I going to miss it like I did with Inception. I?m saving all of my cash for the summer movies.

I've been on the fence since I first saw the stills for this movie, mostly because of what Bob said. It seemed to simply pander to the comic book/anime/fan boy crowd. This isn't to say that I'm not in that group, but I was feeling like this movie was almost baiting me to come in and watch it because it simply had those things in it, which I wasn't buying.

Listening to Bob's review, it's nice to hear that it may actually come off as a good piece of cinema and I think I'm in the realm of "yeah, I'll go check it out" rather then "wait for it to come out on DVD". Thanks Bob.

By the way, Escapist, is there a REASON your forums have to wait for a connection to static.ak.connect.facebook.com every time I try to post a comment, even though I don't have a Facebook account? And is there a reason it always takes so goddamn long to connect to it?
