I think I'll just skip the theaters and wait for the BD.

It's not a long wait but I would prefer to see it writ large on the big screen and with uncompressed digital sound

I sense the ending deals with yet another occurrence at owl creek bridge (located in Brazil perhaps).
If you get my meaning.

The proper setting for sharpness is always0.
Also my Oppo BDP-103D is region free.
That makes me awesome.

Not knowing much about Sucker Punch, I read up about it. From the same dudes that did 300 and Watchmen...

Thanks, but no thanks... the wanton brutality and sadism of a Quentin Tarantino film, throw in a ton of green screen digital S/FX shots, but without the clever dialog or interesting stories.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

I pretty much agree with this. I enjoyed Zack Snyder's version of Dawn of the Dead. I was very excited to see what else he could bring to the cinema. Then came 300, which I wasn't fond of but watched for the Visual FX (I thought the high-speed camera footage made it worth the watch). Then I was let down again with Watchmen, which really had no draw for me in terms of story. Never mind that both 300 and Watchmen were mostly labeled as non-stop action movies by marketing. In reality, both are slowly placed dramas with bits of action.

I may still go see Sucker Punch in the theater because of the Visual FX. And Emily Browning. I have a thing for women from the land down under.

You are aware they are faithful adaptions of existing materal right?
Thats like saying that Spielberg is all about the dinosaurs and nazis.
Plus this film was shot for PG-13 so I would not expect major changes to the Bluray

Day 1 for me. I loved it in theaters already but the DC is a no-brainer. I sure hope WB will have the same kind of set in north america...

Faithful adaptation of shallow comic books aimed at teenage boys = shallow movies aimed at teenage boys.

Except for the director, who claimed it was some sort of stereotype-shattering female-empowerment movie.

I wouldn't say that about "Watchmen," either Moore's original graphic novel or the surprisingly decent if not entirely successful movie adaptation.

Frank Miller's stuff is another story.

For the record, 300 and Watchmen were comic book adaptations but Sucker Punch is an original story.

We almost saw this in the theater - my wife was even more excited than I - but then we found it was PG-13 and that the R-rated version was coming. On top of that, the reviews were horrible, so we decided to wait and Netflix/Redbox it. If we enjoy it, we'll buy it then.

Good plan. I saw it in theaters, in IMAX no less, and I was still very underwhelmed when I left the theater. It had some cool scenes, but it was far from a good movie.

I LOVE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

Havent seen this movie but Im hoping this turns into a Kingdom of Heaven type situation where the theatrical edition is pretty much unwatchable but the DC is amazing.

Enjoyed this in theaters and would like to have this on blu-ray. Picture and sound for this should be excellent if it came mimic the IMAX "lite" theater i watched it in here in Little Rock.Curious to see what Zack will offer in his preferred cut.

Unfortunately I doubt it - because the main things that don't work are at a base level and even reinstating hours of footage, I don't think you can correct the huge mistakes this turd made. I'll rent the R rated cut because I'm interested to see if it will work 'slightly' better, but the main issues can't be solved with simply plugging other scenes back in.

I don't get the Snyder hate and the claim he makes movies for teenage boys. The teenagers I know can't sit still that long and deal with more than two characters. The movies at least for me have a soul. Just the soul of a deviant that doesn't appeal to the taste of the norm. My wife and myself, late 30s, early 40s, love Watchmen, and the 300 is a great popcorn film. I was disappointed when Sucker Punch was rated pg-13, and haven't seen it yet, but now I will wait for the blu-ray. Can't wait. Visually, Snyder for digital and Malick for film...are my two favorite artists to watch right now. Each their own...

300 and Watchmen were much better movies than Sucker Punch. IMHO

What I appreciate most about Snyder is that he does the wide angle, highly choreographed, "big action" scenes very well without resorting to the plague that is "shaky cam". Half the time, I didn't know what Batman was doing to bad guys in Dark Knight because the camera was always attached to his elbow. Say what you will about the plots of the films he directs or the character development, but he knows how to take a scene full of carnage and make it a beautiful thing. He's not perfect, but I'm rarely let down by the eye-candy.

Also, can we please stop knocking on teenagers? It's been a long time since I have been one, but while it's true that teens usually seek the most bombastic and over-the-top stimulation, this does not equate with stupidity. Teens go to movies almost more out of boredom, shock value, or for social engagement than they do anything else.

Come now, let us be honest with one another. Every single member of AVS is on the lookout for "demo material", the big, loud, and stunning media to push their systems and wow their friends in whatever price bracket they are in. Sounds not unlike a teenager with a $1,000 stereo in his $800 car, does it not?

I agree with you on the action scene angle. Only Batman knows what went on in those action sequences...... I really wich they would relegate shaky cam to chase scenes, where it seems to work best.
