Sucker Punch (2011)

Rating:

* Was the story any good?  Not only was it not very good, Sucker Punch was mired with strange imaginary battles that didn’t really make sense, but featured the girls, guns, katanas, zombie-like bad guys and lots of special effects.
* Were the girls at least smoking hot?  Well, they weren’t ugly, they just coated in a thick layer of make-up.
* Was the acting almost decent?  It was not even close to almost decent acting, AND we didn’t even get to see Sweet Pea do her ‘mesmerizing’ dance by the end.

In the end, I don’t really understand what Sucker Punch was about.  And it also really failed if it was just trying to show a movie with hot girls fighting.  I thinkSucker Punch was trying to tell the story of a girl being abused in a juvenile detention center for women through her eyes/mind.  From her point of view, I guess it was constantly an over-dramatic and over-exaggerated war between the guards and her five friends.

There is no reason I would ever watch Sucker Punch again, and there really is no reason to watch it for the first time either.

Time Warner Cable, you have the worst service ever. I haven’t had so many disconnects in a year since I was using my 33.6Kbps dial-up modem in 1997. It’s true that at times you connect at awesome speeds, letting me download things at up to 1Mbps, but it is not worth it when the other 90% of the time your service is either intermittent or non-existent.

I must also complain about the lack of accessibility to the wireless modems you hand out. They are easily hacked and I’m sure anyone that’s using one is at a security risk. Everyone knows that the password is the modem’s MAC address plus 14 more zeros at the end. Maybe this is part of the reason why my internet sucks too; only the gods could know how many of my neighbors are actually stealing my internet. If only I could hide my network, or limit the access by MAC addresses, or even just change the password to the network… If only…

Your prices as well are mediocre at best. You’re just lucky that you’ve cornered this market and there’s no Comcast High Speed Internet or Verizon FiOS in Manhattan. But, with service this bad combined with the rise of 3G/4G Mobile Broadband, I think your reign of terror will end soon enough. Unfortunately, I must suffer your wrath for at least one more month. Oh the horror. Time Warner Cable, you get two stars for at least connecting sometimes, and on rare occasions being blisteringly fast.
