My fellow Fantastic Fangirls and I all went to see the movie Sucker Punch opening weekend. In lieu of blogging about it or writing an essay, we have recorded our first podcast discussing the film.
The post with the download link is here!
iTunes support will be coming along shortly, as we figure out how to do that. In the meantime, right-click on the Download link, listen, and enjoy! And we strongly encourage you to reply or discuss the movie and our thoughts in the comments to that Fantastic Fangirls post. We look forward to hearing from you!

I ended up seeing a number of movies this week, it turns out.
Battle: Los Angeles — The United States is, it seems, really scared of what will happen to us if we are ever invaded they way we invade other countries. Other than that minor interesting point I didn’t think the film was very good.
Red Riding Hood — This was a hot mess. The engine of a werewolf movie is Fear of Ourselves, and Fear of Sex. The engine of Red Riding Hood is Fear of Sex, and Fear of The Outside. The film managed to combine the two stories while leaving out all of the engine themes. I’m not sure how they managed that. However, the production team DID somehow include a nightclub dance-orgy-party scene in fairy-tale medieval faux-Europe. Impressive. One last note — if the trees in your forests are covered with three-foot-long thorns, by the end of the film I want to see at least ONE person or creature impaled on them. Just sayin’.
Paul — Paul was very funny, very good, and not quite as stunningly amazing as Hot Fuzz. Also, I think Frost and Pegg really don’t like conservative Christian Americans.
Sucker Punch — I loved it, and it was a hot mess, and I will be talking about it more elsewhere, I think.
