So on Saturday, I went to see Sucker Punch with some friends. My eyes were about 10 inches in diameter, and my jaw was on the floor for the entire movie. It is nothing less than two hours of pure, concentrated awesomeness squeezed onto film. I don't want to say too much about it, because part of the fun is wondering what craziness is going to appear next.
What I WILL talk about is the soundtrack. Every song in the movie is a remix. (And really good ones, if I don't say so myself.) Also, I realize that one reason I liked the soundtrack so much is because it did such a great job enhancing the movie.....Which doesn't transfer over to this post at all. So, I should say that while I do like the songs by themselves, they are obviously much better in the movie.
First is Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) by Emily Browning
Next is White Rabbit by Emiliana Torrini
And lastly, Where Is My Mind? by Yoav featuring Emily Browning
And while I'm typing this, I'm noticing that there is a pattern between Zack Snyder (The director) and awesome soundtracks. I haven't seen the Owl movie he did recently, but all of his other movies have great soundtracks. Dawn of the Dead had Johnny Cash's When the Man Comes Around, and Richard Cheese's cover of Down With The Sickness. Watchmen had Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A Cangin'. And 300's score was simply epic as hell.
I promise tomorrow I'll get a metal post up. I've just had this album playing in my head all day long.
