I'm not big on movies. I'm not a fan of crowds, and movie theaters have not been kind to my eardrums (or my wallet). I don't watch much television either. Good Lord, I'm a hermit! LOL Anyway, it's rare for me to watch enough TV to see a movie trailer, let alone sit still long enough to watch it. I get most of my movie news through Twitter or on Facebook. So when I saw a movie advertised as "Sucker Punch," I was thinking action? Maybe? And I like action flicks from time to time, so I clicked on it.
Four seconds in, I was wondering what was about to happen to the blonde kid. Ten seconds in, I was convinced it was a horror flick (dark filter, mental ward, etc). By the twenty-six second mark, I was thinking you don't see many giant samurais in horror flicks. So maybe this is something cool after all. Around thirty-five, I wondered if this was some kind of Pussycat Dollesque film??? Then came the forty second mark. That's when I decided this movie was a mishmash of all kinds of insane things, that I had no idea what was going on, but there was a dragon--so WIN!
With that decision made, the rest of the trailer was pretty awesome. Much action, some fantasy and scifi action happening. For the first time since How to Train Your Dragon, I want to see a movie. My husband is still not convinced this won't be a waste of fifteen dollars. Frankly, I'm not either. Movies today ain't what they used to be. Still, it looks fast-paced and actiony. So it should keep us entertained.
How about y'all? Any thoughts on this movie or any others you think will be good?
