“Things The Internet Likes: The Movie”


Alas, this stunningly accurate description of Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch movie — which has a new trailer above — isn’t mine, but was coined by Tom Brazelton on Twitter. It’s basically 300 + John Woo + a women-behind-bars flick, but also with dragons, robots, and a giant samurai demon thing wielding a giant gatling gun. I’m on the internet, and admittedly like all of those things, especially the giant samurai demon thing wielding a giant gatling gun, as it turns out. And while you might think that co-star Vanessa Hudgens, the chick from the High School Musical movies, might be a thing the internet doesn’t like, I believe her leaked nude cellphone pics prove otherwise.
