Sucker Punch (again!)

Carrie wanted to see "Sucker Punch" and I certainly didn't mind seeing it again so I booked us some tickets to see it on Thursday evening. Considering it was only 9pm and it's a multiplex cinema I was surprised as to how empty it was (midnight showing you expect it to be fairly empty, but 9pm?!) and sure enough they were so low on staff that there wasn't even someone collecting tickets.

This is made even more amusing because (as usual) I'd pre-booked us two of the VIP seats (extra comfy/wide leather seats with loads of leg room and the best position in the cinema!) except (ONCE AGAIN!) there was no one else there:

So basically this means I paid for the VIP seats (when there was no one else to claim them!) and there wasn't even anyone checking we had a ticket! I don't really know why I'm complaining though because even if I had known 100% I could have gotten away with it, I'd still have bought them, I'd have felt too guilty!!! In fact, initially we sat in the wrong seats (K6 and K7 instead of K7 and K8 - one seat over) and I made Carrie get up and move over one seat. I think she thought I was joking at first, but the seats were better seats anyway (I picked them!) LOL. We were joined by a few more people, but there was still only about 10 people in the end, I know it's been out a few weeks, but I guess I still expected it to be busier!

My phone isn't very good at red eye reduction and I can't be bothered to edit it so you get Carrie looking possessed... :)

I already saw the film the previous week with Richard and Helen, but it's just visually amazing so I totally wanted to see it again. It's very much a "Marmite" film, because if you see the reviews they're all over the place, people are either saying it's one of the best movies they've ever seen... OR they're are saying it's the worst 2 hours of their life... :) I'm in the "one of the best films" category and so was Carrie it seemed. After all it's got robots, dragons, zombies and one hell of a soundtrack! :D

In fact I loved it so much MORE the second time (probably because I knew what was going on and could notice more things) that I'm planning on watching it again NEXT WEEK by myself for a third time! :)

Honestly I totally recommend this film, it's 50/50 as to if you'll like the story, but you won't deny that it just amazing and there's no way any home release will even come close!
