Viral Video: "Sucker Punch"

It’s hard to say what’s going on in this trailer for a Hollywood movie titled “Sucker Punch,” skedded to come out next spring, except to say it is full of even more heavy-duty special effects and, bonus, lady warrior action.

The film, reads the description, “is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, but her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary…with potentially tragic consequences.”

All I can see is yet another movie that relies even more on digital manipulation.

But it does look cool, so enjoy:

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
