Sucker Punch is an American action-fantasy film written by Steve Shibuya and Zack Snyder, and directed by Snyder. Sucker Punch features an ensemble female cast that includes Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jamie Chung. The film follows a young girl in the 1950s about to be lobotomized as she attempts to escape an asylum with her inmate friends.

Watch the trailer.  As you can see, there’s a lot of Steampunk influence in there.  In fact, this movie has more Steampunk in it than many other pure Steampunk imaginings (like Riese Kingdom Falling, for example).  Snyder has described the film as “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns”, including dragons, B-52 bombers, and brothels. Snyder’s wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder concludes, “in the end, it’s about this girl’s survival and what she needs to do to be able to cope.”

“Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy taht takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality.  Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.

Dr. Warthan’s Review: ΩΩΩΩΩ – Five Omega’s
That’s right, I own it on Blu-Ray!  I love movies that set the mind free.  It’s on the same level as the Matrix and 300.  A definite must-see and must own.

FailPunk: Airship Fail

This is why we can’t have nice airships; Nazis suck!  I’ve invented a new term: FailPunk.  I searched and made sure no one else was using the term, and I couldn’t find any sites with Steampunk fail, Cyberpunk fail, or any other kind of punk fail.  Maybe it’ll catch on.

Want to make your own image macro?  I used ROFLbot to make the image above, which I think is far superior to the LOLbuilder.  If you’ve got a Punk Fail or LOL, send it to me and I’ll post it.
