A film where absolutely nothing happens in a quite spectacular fashion. In tiny sailor outfits. With swords. Sometimes explosions. AND DRAGONS. Murdered dragons.

edit 14th March 2013: A bit late to the party for Tropes vs Women in Video Games Kickstarter by Anita Sarkeesian, and in fact never knowing about her excellent blog/webcast series Feminist Frequency. I had a wander through her archives and noticed this review of Sucker Punch. I also note from a bunch of the links that people are trying to say that Zach Snyder really really tried to make an empowered female character, he really did. I’m confused. How is an two hour rape fantasy that culminates in a lobotomy empowering? Please tell me because I missed some nuance somewhere, obviously. Maybe it was under one of the murdered baby dragons. As a side note, I am feeling shamed by my paltry output.

It may only be 99p to rent, but it’s two hours of your life you will never get back.

 

Frank Miller reference FYI (this image is all over the interwebs, I’ve no idea who to attribute it to).

‘but they kick ass’ is not an acceptable defence

or, design gestalt..

I started making a new design for webanorak a while back.  It had some fun transparent overlay tricks for making javascripty bobbling clouds of content look lovely. It had png24 pattern overlays for that not so THIS IS THE FUTURE, MAN! WEB 2.0 sameness all over the everywhere.

I then left it in it’s little box for a while after the initial enthusiasm was side-tracked by puppies or kittens or head trauma or something. Looking at it again, and comparing it to all the lovely I AM THE FUTURE bleeding edge of cool sites out there now my design blends in to the crowd.

very dull.

Feck it. CSS sprite menus are retro cool.
