    Bit to Do

    These days, Zack Snyder is busy compiling those most iconic of superhero franchises: Batman and Superman. In about a year, we will see these two unbeatable titans take to the silver screen together in all their glory. But before Snyder graduated to the job of directing these most popular of superheroes, he was already honing his skills in the realm of the action epic. He brought back Romero’s zombies with his remake of "Dawn of the Dead." He took us to battle in ancient Greece with "300." He posed the question: “who watches The Watchmen?” Then came "Sucker Punch," the story of a girl’s wrongful holding in a mental hospital and her desperation to escape. It is an explosive film about the tentative line between reality and fantasy.

    Are we not all really just a little crazy?

    "Sucker Punch" is coming back, but in a new way: in the form of independent film. Timothy “TZ” Hall has taken Snyder’s "Sucker Punch" script and made it into his own creation, an African-American fantasy action film titled "Sucker Punched." Natesha Hall stars as Mya, framed for the murder of her brother and put in a mental institution. The real killer has a secret to keep, so Mya is scheduled for a lobotomy. Desperate to escape, she transports herself into a fantasy land where a “Wise Man” tells her to collect four objects. And the epic quest begins.

    "Sucker Punched" is playing tonight, Thursday, April 23, at Baxter Avenue Theater. Tickets can be purchased online here. Information about the film can be found at its website, its Facebook page, or the Facebook event page. Baxter Avenue Theater is located at 1251 Bardstown Road.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
