79: In Defence of… Sucker Punch (w/ Steven DeGennaro)

November 14, 2019

It's Friday! It's Episode 79 and this week's guest might have a way to go to when making his case for this week's chosen film. 

So first, the guest! This week, we are delighted to be joined by the director of Shudder Exclusive Found Footage 3D, the excellent short film Stop and co-host of Science vs Fiction Podcast ... It's Steven DeGennaro!

His chosen film? Sucker Punch!

Coming hot on the heels of Watchmen, Sucker Punch was, and remains, the only film from director Zack Snyder that is not based on an existing IP. Derided at the time of release for being misogynistic at best, offensive at worst, the film is certainly divisive. 

Is the vitriol deserved or is there more to be found here? 

The synopsis is as follows: 

Locked away, a young woman named Babydoll retreats to a fantasy world where she is free to go wherever her mind takes her. Determined to fight for real freedom, she finds four women -- Rocket, Blondie, Amber and Sweet Pea -- to join together to escape the terrible fate that awaits them.

With a virtual arsenal at their disposal, the allies battle everything from samurais to serpents, while trying to decide what price they will pay for survival.
