For the last month or two, I’ve been absolutely crazy to see the movie Sucker Punch, or as I heard it called (sounds like a great pitch quote) : “Alice in Wonderland with Machine Guns”. I’m not aiming to spoil this for anyone, so there’s a courtesy cut below. Don’t go complaining to me about spoilers if you clicked to read the rest: This entry is about the intersection between plot and message, and how the two can undermine each other, leaving the audience dissatisfied. Also, I will say above the cut that the movie is definitely worth seeing. The 1% of the movie that I complain about is what I focus on in this article, not the 99% that was amazing.
