Sucker Punch Review

Check out FANgirl’s review of the new movie Sucker Punch on the Reviews section:

A “sucker punch” by definition is a move that the recipient doesn’t see coming, which ultimately leaves him defenseless. Given the ending of this movie (which I won’t spoil in this review), I think it’s an appropriate title. Most of the commentary on Sucker Punch, though, hasn’t been about that gut-wrenching twist of fate.

It’s not the best movie ever, but on the dessert scale I’d say this one is a key-lime pie, sweet, tart and something different from the standard fare.  Try it; you might like it.

Two Additional Reminders from FANgirl Blog:

Today marks the release of Bonnie Burton’s The Star Wars Craft Book. I’m very excited to get this book, and hope to post a review within a few days.

Be sure to remember Legacy: War #4 is on sale tomorrow!

    I heard a few of my friends think that the movie was pretty good! I’ll probably check it out (and make sure I don’t have my expectations too high!)

      I’ve been absolutely pumped for this movie since I first saw the trailer for it previous season. I’m fresh from viewing it, and I have to say that it’s not quite what I anticipated, though definitely not in a bad way. To those who haven’t seen it, two words: Do it. But be open to the fact that it will almost definitely not be exactly what you expect. Although it looks like a somewhat mindless kick ass, eye candy flick, don’t be fooled: there’s a pretty good story here, and its much deeper than your first impression of it will be, also. Oh, and don’t try and predict the ending. After you watch it, you will need to process what actually happened, but put your thinking cap on- because its deeper than you think.
