While we wait to see if Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch is going to an action-packed sexy-fun-time or a hollow, CGI clusterfuck, it’s worth considering how the film might be if it starred nothing but Disney Princesses, as in this mash-up. My opinion: Kind of awesome, actually. When Walt’s head gets defrosted in 2047 and he returns to rule Disney, except evil beyond imagining and hungry for profits, he should really consider an animated remake of Sucker Punch. If nothing else, the merchandising would be phenomenal. (Via The Mary Sue)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
