No Longer Want to See Sucker Punch

Okay, okay. I've heard enough awful reviews. I no longer want to see Sucker Punch.
Everyone I've talked to who has seen the movie has told me that it was bad. Not just bad, but TERRIBLE! My cousin actually said it was the worst piece of shit he's ever seen. I must say, I am very disappointed. When I first started seeing stuff about Sucker Punch I was intrigued. I like Zack Snyder from his work on the 300 and Watchmen (check out our movie tee shirts!), so that was a plus. The first trailer I saw seemed pretty cool. It was one of those movies where I was like, hmm. Maybe I'll check it out.

We all make bad decisions in life.

Then came the later previews. There were the tv spots that have been running that featured the song Panic Switch by The Silversun Pickups (very underrated band). Pretty cool song, made me pretty hyped to see the movie. In all honesty though, the real reason I wanted to see this movie so bad was one song in particular:
When the Levee Breaks, by LED FUCKING ZEPPELIN!!!
I have always been familiar with Led Zeppelin (we've got Led Zeppelin tees), but I didn't really start to get deep into them until a few years ago. When I first heard When the Levee Breaks, I played it on repeat about five times. It automatically made me want to kick someone's ass. I was so hyped. I remember telling my girlfriend, "this is like the perfect song for a barfight scene in a movie." I racked my brain trying to think if I had ever heard it in a movie, but I came up with nothing.
So when I went to the movies a few months ago, and the into to Levee Breaks came pumping through the speakers, I lost my fucking mind. SOMEONE FINALLY USED IT! I was so hyped. It's the same way I feel about the Chemical Brothers song that plays during the previews for that Hanna movie that is coming out next week. That song gets me pretty pumped too (search our cool stuff).
Unfortunately, the reports of how shitty Sucker Punch is have diminished my excitement since then. I still have hope for Hanna. I guess maybe I should have different criteria for which movies I get excited to see, but I can't help it. Sometimes the music just gets to me.  We will carry Sucker Punch Tees as they are in demand around here.
Have you ever wanted to see a movie based on the music in the previews? Am I the only idiot?
