DVD MOVIE REVIEW: Sucker Punch (At Long Last!)

Wil Avitt's picture

First of all, I would like to apologize for the lateness of this review. I really tried to get to it in the theaters, but I had just gotten the job and it just didn't get got. In the future, if I miss a movie during its theatrical run I will get it on dvd, but I'm gonna try really hard not to do that.

HOW NOT TO LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT: "Know What You're Talking About."

Republibot 3.0's picture

"It’s 1985 and Nixon is President. We’ve won in Vietnam. Oh, and Henry Kissinger has a Russian accent. And Ronald Reagan is thinking of running for President in 1988. Wow, isn’t that cool that they got it wrong on purpose? I’m so amazed at this “high-brow art” of deliberately getting dates and timelines wrong, you know, just to be “artistic,” and get the drooling of the critics. That is sooooo genius. Like way totally cool."

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Watchmen (Director‘s Cut)” (2009)

Doctor Manhattan has the fakest looking penis ever.

Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t *want* to see his junk. I don’t like that kind of thing. I think one of the reasons I never got into porn (Beyond the obvious ethical reasons) is that *even if* there are chicks around, you just can’t watch that kind of thing without seeing entirely too much of some dude’s wedding vegetables. That just always seemed kind of gay to me, in concept.

Last Impressions: Watchmen (1986)

You know that feeling you get when you’re really into a book, so you deliberately slow down your reading to make it last longer? And then, when you get to the ending, you’re so caught up in it that you didn’t notice the CD had ended and the kids went to bed and the sun went down?

I've Not Seen The Watchmen, But I've Got Some Morbid Curiosity

Republibot 3.0's picture

I love The Watchmen comic - excuse me, Graphic Novel. I love it so much that and I kind of think the attempt to even make a movie based on it is kind of misguided. As such, I've not seen it, but I've been talking to R2 about it extensively, but I do have some questions if anyone is interested in getting a discussion going.

1) Does the threat of Armageddeon in 1985 really work in 2009?
