I rather enjoyed it. And I'm kind of a movie douche. But then, I knew what I was getting, and got what I paid for so...

In Defense of ‘Sucker Punch’ – Uncovering the Method Behind Zack Snyder’s Madness | /Film
PART IV: HATERS GONNA HATE
As a whole, I think Sucker Punch is a seriously flawed effort. But itís not fair to write the film off as being a completely mindless one. In an age of derivative **** like Battle: Los Angeles, an amibitious failure like Sucker Punch is something to be supported and admired, not violently derided and shunned. Many may deem it a disaster with a deeply confused sense of morality, but surely thereís something to be said for trying something new. Isnít that, above all else, what Hollywood is in need of right now?
Iím not arguing that you shouldnít hate Sucker Punch.
All I hope is that youíre hating it for the right reasons.

I can see why some people hated it, but as for me I was entertained.
And man was Abbie Cornish hot!!!

You Honestly Won’t Believe That This Is Going To Be In The Sucker Punch Director’s Cut Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
When you see Sucker Punch, you’ll notice that the end credits are accompanied by a cover version of Love is the Drug and some footage of a big song and dance number. We’ve heard that this is from a scene sadly deleted from the theatrical cut, but expected to appear intact on the eventual DVD and Blu-ray release.
Indeed, a whole series of musical numbers were cut from the film, and some of them were quite surprising – none more so than an inspired black-metal cover of Rebecca Black’s Friday.
Yep. Before it was the viral smash it is today, this year’s most played song was turned on its head, twisted inside out and smashed bloody in a cover version by Sucker Punch’s Emily Browning and Guns and Roses guitarist Slash. Those who have heard it have described it as “literally unbelievable”.
The full version, complete with a lavish Busby Berkely style production number, is expected to turn up on the home video releases, though it’s apparently unlikely that it will be edited back into the film.
Sounds to me like Snyder's cut and the studio cut are VERY different. They should have let him release it as he wanted it. He's the one getting screwed by the press and you never know...his cut might actually work better. We shall see when the eventual triple dip of the dvd/blu comes out. Then again...this is April 1st. Crap. Nevermind.

Slash and Emily Browning doing a "black" metal cover? Is that a pun, or is my definition of "black" metal different?

Also, I do remember reading in one of the billions of interviews with Snyder about this movie about that stuff that got cut. And having to actually edit his movie to conform to, I think he said, test audiences.
I ****ing hate that ****.
I don't know if it would have made the movie any better or worse, but I really wish they would just let the people do the **** they want to do.

Well...I agree. If a flick is going to fail and the director is going to take the heat then he should be allowed(reasonably) to put forth his vision. At least WB will, no doubt, put his cut out on dvd eventually. It's funny, I so think that this story is an April Foolio, yet it's not ridiculous enough that it couldn't be true.

I read him talking about the song during the credits being in place a big musical number that he was originally going to have be the end of the film a week or so ago...
