I very rarely go to the theater anymore - mostly because I'm cheap and try to avoid having to deal with the public if I'm not getting paid for it. I also know that if I just have a little patience, I can get whatever I want from Netflix and view it from the comfort of my sofa while drinking booze. This beats sitting in an uncomfortable chair in the dark, surrounded by a bunch of strangers (& without a decent adult beverage!) - hands down, every time. Besides...having to turn around and deathstare the one jerk who insists on narrating the entire film for his friend who keeps crinkling his candy wrappers completely ruins my social entertainment experience.*
Once in a while, though, there comes a movie that requires a big screen viewing. I think Sucker Punch is going to be one of these, at least for me. Mostly because of this:
I don't really know what the movie is about and I don't even care. Chicks with guns and steampunk airships and a pink bunny face giant robot of death? I'll be at the matinée.
*word to the wise: don't sit behind a librarian at the movies & think you can get away with talking during the good parts. The shushing will be brutal and swift.
