Family-Faith Film Review: Sucker Punch
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Sucker Punch — Inchoate fantasy designed especially for those who like their movies to be thrill rides devoid of such niceties as coherent plot, writing or wrap-up. Director Zack Snyder, who co-wrote the screenplay with Steve Shibuya, supposedly folds a “girl power” message somewhere in here among the bustiers, long false eyelashes and set-piece fights pitting a quintet of combative maidens — played by Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung — against hosts of robot soldiers. The whole undertaking is obviously aimed at an audience of adolescent boys. Considerable intense gun and knife violence, at least one instance of profanity, fleeting crude language, and a couple of scenes of sexual menace. A-III — adults. (PG-13) 2011

Local Oregon foresters and craftsmen offer Woodturning Blanks for woodworking projects. Display your skills with a lathe by starting from pen blanks or bowl blanks and creating beautiful artwork. Your options expand even more when you consider the options with burl wood and wood slabs.
Finally, if you live in California, be sure to discuss your options at a Sacramento probate lawyer related to your estate and trust. Legal planning is critical, and having an attorney who comprehends probate administration and law will be invaluable!
