Owch! Two terrible films. Which is worse? A tough choice. Sucker Punch was boring, mysoginist rubbish which claims to support a feminist ideal, although if people think that women dreaming of fantasy violence wearing virtually nothing whilst being raped to kingdom come in an insane asylum is somehow empowering to women that obviously must have missed a good deal of feminist history. That said, James Cameron managed to make two of the best Sci-Fi films of all time (Aliens and Terminator 2) with female protagonists who weren't dressed up as teenage sluts, so anyone who looks at this film as pro-feminist ought to have another look at some PROPER Sci-Fi action films. Suffice to say, in order to be exorcised by the sexual politics of Sucker Punch, one has to actually get around the fact that it is EXTREMELY boring. The soundtrack and visual effects were good, but then again name me a film which doesn't have decent stock in these departments these days. A total pile of pretentious w@nk. Meanwhile, Attack of the Clones was the worst of all six Star Wars films (with the possible exception of the Phantom Menace), with terrible acting, dialogue and story the kind of which we have come to expect from George Lucas films post 1983. However, on this occasion I am going to take Star Wars films on the grounds that at least it kept me vaguely (ONLY vaguely, mind) entertained, and considering that it comes from a series with a decent pedigree in chronologically later installments, while Sucker Punch is a pop video/video game sexual fantasy gone badly wrong. I could have watched porn films with more interesting characters and plot threads, and at least in porn the strippers are there for the purpose of being marginalised for masculine pleasure, unlike the cast of Sucker Punch, who for all intents and purposes achieve the opposite effect of what they set out to do. Stick to Japanese video games and pornography for this kind of rubbish, at least you'll have a bit more fun in the process.
