Zack Snyder made a two hour music video called Sucker Punch and we're here to tell you why you shouldn't see it. Paul, Jason, June and Chelsea Peretti fought fate to watch this disaster and are attempting the impossible: Explaining what the hell it's about. Between the rape dancing, the comic book costumes, and the bizarre performance of Mr. Blue we can't guarantee you closure but we can guarantee you some laughs!

"When you're an orphan in a rape dungeon... you take what you can get." This show is hilarious and I really want to eat some bakers chocolate now.

everyone seems to be done with this, so i'm gonna paste the details of something that popped up on demonoid: a torrent of Sucker Punch synced with Dark Side of the Moon. and the guy decided that he had to detail the entire thing in the description instead of just letting people download it. Check out how much this dude wrote about it (sorry if it's only funny to me, also demonoid is invite only, so i cant just link to it)):

Some notable mirroring syncs:
-Rocket's death is beautiful. There are also many allusions to her death. There are a couple of instances where Rocket seems as if she is saying things like "I never said I was afraid of dying" and "Why should I be afraid of dying..."
"And if the dam breaks open many years too soon, and if there is no room upon the hill"
The first time we hear this, we prominently see Rocket and Sweet Pea standing together ready for battle in the Map Mission.
The second time we hear this, we see Rocket and Sweet Pea separated from each other at the end of the Knife Mission.
The explosion of her death and the farewell between her and Sweet Pea is a grand and tragic.
"And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too 
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon. "
This is all about the death of her sister and Rocket is the representation of that. In the end, Sweet Pea will see her on the other side in her mind.

-The symbolism and syncs of the mirroring of the stepfather kicking down the door to little sister hiding in closet with Babydoll kicking Blue down then opening the door with SweetPea inside a closet. The album repeats with these two scenes at the same place.
"Run, rabbit run."

-Also with Babydoll shooting at her stepfather and hitting the gas pipe and lightbulb mirrors her shooting the blimp that releases the gas and looks like the explosion of the lightbulb - both taking place at the same time in the album "Dig that hole, forget the sun, 
And when at last the work is done 
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one. "

-" Look around, choose your own ground"
Babydoll gets a gun the first time
Babydoll gets a knife the second time

"Run Rabbit Run"
Babydoll escapes through window
Babydoll runs after guy with map
Babydoll grabs key to escape asylum

There are many more.

"Speak to Me"

"I've been mad for fucking years, absolutely years, been 
over the edge for yonks, been working me buns off for bands..."

CYCLE 1: BABY DOLL SITTING IN HER BED IN DEEP DREADFUL ANTICIPATION
CYCLE 2: THE CASH REGISTER RINGING UP SOUNDS LIKE MACHINE GUN FIRE WHICH SYNCS WITH SWEET PEA'S GUNFIRE
CYCLE 3: THE HEART BEATS AS BLUE REVEALS THEIR WHOLE PLAN .

CYCLE 1: THE SCREAMS CLIMAX JUST AS THEIR DEAD MOTHER IS REVEALED
CYCLE 2: THE SCREAMS CLIMAX AS SWEET PEA FRANTICALLY KILLS EVERYONE SURROUNDING HER SISTER
CYCLE 3: THE SCREAMS CLIMAX JUST AS BLUE PULLS THE TRIGGER AND KILLS AMBER. The women then scream in horror.

"I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the 
most of us...very hard to explain why you're mad, even 
if you're not mad..." 

(Instrumental) 


"Breathe"

Breathe, breathe in the air.
CYCLE 2: BABYDOLL FLIES THROUGH THE AIR.

Don't be afraid to care. 
Leave but don't leave me. 
Look around and choose your own ground. 

CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL LOOKS THROUGH THE KEYHOLE AT HER SISTER. SHE WANTS THE STEPFATHER TO LEAVE BUT NOT TO LEAVE HER TO GO AFTER HER SISTER. HER LITTLE SISTER LOOKS OUT AS IF TO SAY "DON'T LEAVE ME WITH HIM" BABYDOLL LOOKS AROUND TO SEE THE WINDOW.
CYCLE 2: BABYDOLL SEEMS OUTNUMBERED BUT TAKES THEM BY SURPRISE
CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL FEELS AROUND FOR HER KNIFE.

Long you live and high you fly 
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry 
And all you touch and all you see 
Is all your life will ever be. 

CYCLE 1: "ALL YOU TOUCH" BABYDOLL GRABS THE LEDGE

Run, rabbit run.
CYCLE 1: THE STEPFATHER KICKS OPEN THE DOOR THAT HAS THE LITTLE SISTER INSIDE. THE KEYS ARE SHOWN IN THE DOOR. BABYDOLL LANDS OUTSIDE AND RACES TO GET TO THEM.
CYCLE 2: BABYDOLL IS RUNNING AFTER THE MAN.
CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL KICKS BLUE DOWN WHILE GRABBING THE KEY ( A DIRECT MIRROR TO HER STEPFATHER KICKING OPEN THE CLOSET DOOR) BABYDOLL THEN OPENS THE DOOR THAT HAS SWEET PEA CROUCHED AND CRYING INSIDE ( JUST LIKE HER SISTER CROUCHING AND CRYING IN THE CLOSET) ALL IN TUNE WITH THE SAME SOUNDS

Dig that hole, forget the sun, 
And when at last the work is done 
Don't sit down it's time to dig another one. 

CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL SHOOTS AT THE STEPFATHER, ONLY TO MISS AND HIT THE GAS PIPE AND LIGHT BULB RELEASING GAS.
CYCLE 2: BABY DOLL IS RUNNING AFTER THE MAN WITH THE MAP WHO IS RUNNING TO THE BLIMP. BABY DOLL IS SHOOTING ;BABY DOLL MUST SHOOT THE BLIMP AND RELEASE GAS FROM IT.
CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL OPENS THE DOOR TO THE CLOSET THAT SWEET PEA IS CROUCHED IN. "DON'T SIT DOWN ITS TIME TO DIG ANOTHER ONE" BABYDOLL LIFTS HER UP AND GIVES HER EVERYTHING SHE NEEDS TO GET OUT OF THIS HOLE THEY ARE IN.

For long you live and high you fly 
But only if you ride the tide 
And balanced on the biggest wave 
You race towards an early grave. 

CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL RUNS TO HER SISTER TO DISCOVER HER DEAD
CYCLE 2: THE BLIMP FLIES OFF WITH THE GUY RIDING ON THE LADDER
CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL AND SWEET PEA RACE OUT OF THE ASYLUM, ONLY TO SACRIFICE BABYDOLL

CYCLE 3: footsteps and running heard as BABYDOLL AND SWEET PEA ESCAPE
AT ONE POINT BABYDOLL AND SWEET PEA ARE RIGHT OUTSIDE THE WINDOWED CUBICLE THE GUARD IS IN. THE GUARD IS LISTENING TO AN AUDIO PLAYER WITH HEADPHONES ON. WE HEAR RAPID FOOTSTEPS WHEN WE ARE WITH THE WOMEN OUTSIDE THE CUBICLE. THE FOOTSTEPS BECOME SILENT WHEN WE ARE IN THE CUBICLE WITH THE GUARD. WE HEAR THE RAPID FOOTSTEPS IMMEDIATELY AGAIN WHEN WE ARE BROUGHT BACK TO THE WOMEN.

CYCLE 1: SOUND OF PLANE GOING FROM LEFT TO RIGHT AS WE SEE THE CAR BABYDOLL IS IN GOING FROM LEFT TO RIGHT WITH THE TITLE ON THE WINDOW, ZOOMING BY
CYCLE 2: SOUND OF PLANE GOING FROM LEFT TO RIGHT AS WE SEE BABYDOLL MOVE HER SWORD FROM LEFT TO RIGHT OVER THE SOLDIER'S HEAD

CYCLE 2: BABYDOLL IS VICTORIOUS AND LEAVES WITH THE MAP IN HAND
CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL EXPLAINS TO SWEET PEA THAT SHE HAS TO STAY AND SHE HAS TO GO (escape).

(Instrumental) 

CYCLE 1: AS THE SOUNDS OF THE PLANE CRASH, BABYDOLL IS BEING LEAD DOWN A HALLWAY TO BLUE WHO IS WAITING ON THE RIGHT BLOCKING HER PATH.
CYCLE 2: AS THE SOUNDS OF THE PLANE CRASH, WE AGAIN SEE BLUE STANDING TO THE RIGHT SHUTTING DOWN ANOTHER WOMAN'S PATH

CYCLE 2: AS THE DUELING FACEOFF MUSIC IS PLAYING , BLUE IS STARING DOWN THE ROOM AND EVENTUALLY THE MAP, HE IS ON TO THEM.
CYCLE 3: MADAME DOC LOOKS AT THE FORGED PAPERS AS THE HEART BEAT WE HEAR QUICKENS LIKE HER OWN

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day


You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way. 
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town 
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way. 

CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL AND SWEET PEA LOOK AT EACH OTHER; THE WAY
CYCLE 2: GIRLS ON FLOOR OF DANCE PRACTICE. BLONDIE IS SHOWING AMBER HOW TO GET THE LIGHTER.
CYCLE 3: THAT GUY HITS THE GLASS LETTING BABYDOLL THROUGH; THE GUARDS LEADING BABYDOLL
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain. 

CYCLE 3: THEY PASS BY THE EXTINGUISHED FLAMES
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today. 
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. 
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun. 

CYCLE 1: THAT GUY HITS THE GLASS SO BABYDOLL CAN GO THROUGH
CYCLE 2: OLD MAN WALKS IN
CYCLE 3: BLUE TAKES A DEFEATED BABYDOLL INTO ROOM
CYCLE 1 AND 3 ARE PARALLEL MIRRORS AMONG THE MANY PARALLELS BETWEEN THE CYCLES. THROUGH THESE SAME WORDS A DEFEATED BABYDOLL IS LED TO HER DOOM.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking 
Racing around to come up behind you again.
CYCLE 2: SUN (SPOTLIGHT) SHINES ON BABY DOLL
CYCLE 3: THE GUARDS COME UP BEHIND BLUE AS HE REALIZES SUNNY BABYDOLL'S LIGHT HAS FADED
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older, 
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

CYCLE 1: SWEETPEA IS DRESSED AS BABYDOLL GETS UP AND POINTS TO THE LOBOTOMY CHAIR ON "ONE DAY CLOSER TO DEATH"

CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL SITTING IN A CHAIR LOOKS THE SAME BUT IS NOT THERE; LOBOTOMIZED; DEAD

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time. 
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines 
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
CYCLE 2: THE GIRLS HANG ON IN THE PLANE
The time is gone, the song is over, 
Thought I'd something more to say. 

CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL IS ASKED IF SHE IS ALRIGHT; THE STORY IS OVER AND SHE HAS NOTHING MORE TO SAY


"Breathe" reprise

Home, home again.
CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL IS INTRODUCED TO SWEETPEA AND HER SISTER, ROCKET (BABYDOLLS MIRROR OF HER AND HER SISTER back home)

I like to be here when I can. 
When I come home cold and tired 
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire.

CYCLE 2: THE GUIDE DROPS THE FIRE BOMB AND THEY FLY NEAR THE FIERY EXPLOSION

Far away across the field 
The tolling of the iron bell
CYCLE 3: BABYDOLL/SWEETPEA STANDS BEFORE THE BUS GETTING READY TO GO TO THE GREAT BEYOND

Calls the faithful to their knees 
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.
CYCLE 3: SWEETPEA FINALLY SUCCUMBS TO HER GUILT (THE BOY) 
FOLLOWING IT ONTO THE BUS HEADING TO THE BEYOND IN HER MIND.


"The Great Gig in the Sky" 

"And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I 
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying? 
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime."

CYCLE 2: DRAGON LIFTS HER DEAD BABY'S LIFELESS BODY

CYCLE 2: DRAGON SEEMS TO BE THE WOMAN WAILING IN A GRACEFUL DEPRESSING FLIGHT


(Instrumental) 




"Money"

Money, get away.
Get a good job with good pay and you're okay.
Money, it's a gas.
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash.
New car, caviar, four star daydream,
Think I'll buy me a football team.

CYCLE 1: THE GIRLS ARE SHOWING THEIR STUFF. THE MADAME. BLUE COMES IN TO SEE IF BABYDOLL HAS THE RIGHT STUFF. IT APPEARS THAT THE MADAME IS GIVING THE WHOLE SPEECH ABOUT MONEY TO BABYDOLL.


Money, get back.
I'm all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack.
CYCLE 2: BABY DOLL PUTS OUT THE DRAGON'S SMOKE STACK STANDING ATOP ITS HEAD WITH HER HANDS STACKED ON HER SWORD

Money, it's a hit.
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit.
CYCLE 1: THE MADAME IS CLOSE TO BABYDOLL TELLING HER TO LET GO AND DANCE, APPEARING TO TELL HER "DON'T GIVE ME THAT DO GOODY GOOD BULLSHIT"
I'm in the high-fidelity first class traveling set 
And I think I need a Lear jet.

CYCLE 2: BABY DOLL IS BACK AT THE SHOW AND HAS IMPRESSED THE RICH AUDIENCE IN APPLAUSE WITH EVERYONE EXCITED

CYCLE 1: THE DRAMATIC REVEAL OF BABYDOLL'S TRANSPORTATION TO A NEW SURROUNDING; HER TEMPLE WITH THE MUSIC

Money, it's a crime.
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie.
Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today.
But if you ask for a raise it's no surprise that they're 
giving none away.

CYCLE 1: IT APPEARS THAT THE OLD MAN IS GIVING THIS WHOLE ADVICE TO BABYDOLL AND ENDS IT BY TURNING HER AWAY
CYCLE 1: "AWAY AWAY AWAY AWAY" BABYDOLL IS TURNED AWAY FROM THE GUIDE TO FACE THE THREE WHO APPEAR TO BE TALKING LIKE DRUNK MEN IN THE DISTANCE

"HuHuh! I was in the right!"
"Yes, absolutely in the right!"
"I certainly was in the right!"
"You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a
bruising!"
"Yeah!"
"Why does anyone do anything?"
"I don't know, I was really drunk at the time!"
"I was just telling him, he couldn't get into number 2. He was asking
why he wasn't coming up on freely, after I was yelling and
screaming and telling him why he wasn't coming up on freely.
It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out"

CYCLE 1: THE THREE APPEAR TO BE TALKING TO EACH OTHER.

THERE IS A VERY AUDIBLE SOUND LIKE A LOUD FOOTSTEP ON WOOD JUST AS THE FIRST OF THE THREE TAKES A STEP FORWARD.

"IT CAME TO A HEAVY BLOW, BUT WE SORTED THE MATTER OUT" THE FIRST OF THE THREE DROPS HIS GIANT BLADE ON THE GROUND, DRAGGING IT, AND WALKS TOWARDS BABYDOLL TO SORT THE MATTER OUT.

CYCLE 2: BLONDIE IS WORRIED ABOUT WHAT SHE DID AND HOW IT MAY BE THE WRONG THING TO DO


"Us and Them"
CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL FACES OFF AGAINST THE THREE AS 'US AND THEM' BEGINS

Us, and them 
And after all we're only ordinary men.

CYCLE 1: THE THREE ARE ONLY ORDINARY MEN IN REALITY
BABYDOLL CUTS THE THROAT AS "US" ECHOES

Me, and you. 
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do.
CYCLE 2: THE GIRLS DON'T WANT TO DO THIS WITH THE CHEF BUT THEY MUST
Forward he cried from the rear
CYCLE 1: BABY DOLL RUNS FORWARD
CYCLE 2: LOOKS LIKE SWEET PEA IS IN MADAME'S PLACE PUSHING THE 'FORWARD' SWITCH FOR BABYDOLL'S DANCE

and the front rank died.
CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL KILLS 2 OF 3
And the general sat and the lines on the map 
moved from side to side.
CYCLE 1: THE LINES (THE COLUMNS) MOVE FROM SIDE TO SIDE AS THE BUILDING COLLAPSES.
BABYDOLL PUTS THE GUN BACK IN HER SIDE AS SHE STRUTS OUT THE VICTORY
CYCLE 2: CHEF SITS WHILE BABYDOLL MOVES SIDE TO SIDE (STARTING HER DANCE)

Black and blue
CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL'S OUTFIT AND WEAPON PROMINENTLY FEATURED AND LINGERED ON IN HER BLACK AND BLUE UNIFORM
CYCLE 2: BABYDOLL BACK IN HER BLACK AND BLUE UNIFORM

And who knows which is which and who is who.
CYCLE 1: BABYDOLL FACES OFF AGAINST THE FINAL MYSTERY BEAST
CYCLE 2: BABYDOLL FACES ALL HER OTHER PERSONAS

Up and down.
CYCLE 1: THE SAMURAI RAISES HIS SWORD. BABYDOLL CROUCHES DOWN
CYCLE 2: GIRLS GET IN THE PLANE

But in the end it's only round and round.
CYCLE 1: THE BEAST FALLS AS BABY DOLL FLIES THROUGH THE AIR
CYCLE 2: THE HELICOPTER BLADES SPIN ROUND AND ROUND

Haven't you heard it's a battle of words 
The poster bearer cried. 
Listen son, said the man with the gun


There's room for you inside.


CYCLE 1: THE GIRLS CROWD AROUND BABYDOLL ACCEPTING HER INTO THE GROUP OF DANCERS
CYCLE 2: THE GIRLS TRY TO GET INSIDE THE TRAIN

"I mean, they're not gunna kill ya, so if you give 'em a quick short, 
sharp, shock, they won't do it again. Dig it? I mean he get off 
lightly, 'cos I would've given him a thrashing - I only hit him once! 
It was only a difference of opinion, but really...I mean good manners 
don't cost nothing do they, eh?"
CYCLE 1: GIRLS ARE TALKING ABOUT DIFFERING OPINIONS ON GETTING OUT
BABYDOLL APPEARS TO SAY "EH"
CYCLE 2: APPEARS THE GIRLS ARE GETTING ORDERS ON HOW TO TAKE OUT THE ROBOTS AND DEAL WITH THE BOMB



Down and out 
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about. 
With, without. 
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about?
CYCLE 2: GIRLS ARE FIGHTING ROBOTS TO GET THE KNIFE

Out of the way, it's a busy day
CYCLE 2: SWEET PEA COMES TO BABYDOLL'S RESCUE AND KICKS THE ROBOT OUT THE TRAIN

I've got things on my mind. 
For the want of the price of tea and a slice 
The old man died.

The lunatic is in the hall. 
The lunatics are in my hall.

The paper holds their folded faces to the floor 
And every day the paper boy brings more. 

CYCLE 1: THE GUIDE APPEARS LOOKING LIKE A BIKE MESSENGER DURING WWI. HE BRINGS THE MESSAGE OF GETTING THE MAP.

CYCLE 2: ROCKET AND SWEET PEA ARE SEPARATED / THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR ROCKET TO GET OUT WITHOUT HER JETPACK /ROCKET IS DOOMED TO THE TRAIN ON A PATH TO THE CITY WITH THE BOMB AS SWEET PEA LOOKS ON

Nathan Rabin of the AV Club has an excellent review of Sucker Punch for his regular column, My Year of Flops.
http://www.avclub.co...ase-file,61684/
"Depending on whom you ask, Snyder set out to make either the ultimate sexist masturbatory fanboy fantasy or the ultimate critique of sexist masturbatory fanboy fantasies. He failed spectacularly on both counts, but in true Fiasco form, there’s something fascinating and even strangely majestic about that failure."

Babydoll played by Emily Browing is 24 and was 23 when the movie came out so I am guessing she was 19-22 when the movie was made.

Great episode :).

Okay, it's probably not relevant anymore but, what I understood was that there was the reality(asylum), then the alternate reality which I think is kind of Baby Doll's way of interpreting the reality (probably why she is in a brothel) and the second alternate reality which would be her way of empowering herself, having control over her world. Carla Gugino tells her, before her first dance, that she has to "fight" so it's like she is picturing herself kicking ass instead of dancing for customers and whatnot.
So yep.. That's what I got from it.

Funny how the crew is ragging so hard on Oscar Issac... I think he's turned out pretty alright, guys. Inside Llewyn Davis sits at a firm 94% on RT, up there with all the Coen brothers bests, and he's going to be in Star Wars Episode 7.

He was annoying in Llewyn Davis, which was critic-bait but also very much a lesser light for the Coens IMO.

God-damn, this movie was terrible, one of the only ones, save for The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Batman & Robin, which made me fly into an apoplectic rage! And they let Zack Snyder rape Superman..... Why?!
