Gahhhhhhh. I’d just written a hugely long piece about Danny’s new film Sucker Punch, and was just trying to watch the trailer on the film’s website, when the fucker crashed on me, losing all my carefully crafted prose.
That’s not the site’s fault, to be fair, but it’s still appallingly badly-designed. Why hide your news in a tiny box you have to scroll? Why watermark your images? Don’t you want people to use them to publicise your film? And why have them open up in a small window that doesn’t show the image properly, and then make it so you can’t resize that window? It all smacks of someone concentrating on making the site look good at the expense of the user experience, when there’s no need – you can do both.
So there. Read the TOS article. Go and struggle with the film site if you want. The film actually looks very good (“Sucker Punch is a British film unlike any other in that it is not a costume drama, not a rom-com with a token American star and most definitely not a gangster movie.”) Just leave me alone. Fuck off.
