It’s been more than a decade since film-goers went down the Matrix’s rabbit hole. The Wachowski brothers’ film introduced a new world to science fiction audiences and even new film techniques.
Now, Zack Snyder (‘Watchmen’, ‘300’) is introducing his new film ‘Sucker Punch’ to audiences. Will it be a mind-bending, genre mash-up that gets added to the cultural lexicon like ‘The Matrix’ or is it just another film full of eye candy? The movie will be in theaters March 2011.
After reading Jack Kirby’s Forever People and New Gods comic books and watching 2001: A Space Odyssey, Dirk was assimilated during first grade recess into the collective known as Science Fiction.

Born in San Francisco and currently enjoying a steampunk version of Ft. Lauderdale, when not grokking Science Fiction he spends his time with family and friends and just maybe trying to enter the dreams of disingenuous politicians.
