PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm still reeling from the unrivalled epicness and awesomeness that is Sucker Punch in IMAX (just got home - do not miss this film), but now I'm back to boring old reality where we apparently care about pieces of plastic that go beep. So, anywho. The deal between Nokia and Microsoft has many Symbian and Qt developers worry about the future of their platforms. To address these concerns, Purnima Kochikar, vice president of Forum Nokia, has published an open letter describing Nokia's plans for Symbian, Qt, and Java for Series 40 devices. While the letter doesn't deliver any hard dates, the transition phase to Windows Phone 7 is set to 2011/2012.

Sucker Punch is TERRIBLE. You'll love it if you're a 14 year old boy...but if you're a grownup that likes a movie with a real script...then STAY AWAY!!

You are both accurate and unfair. Suckerpunch doesn't have anything like coherence, but there are some beautiful (if inconsequential) battle sequences. It gave me a very Heavy Metal vibe (minus the music); the people making it were going for awesome but didn't know how to get there, so some parts worked and some just fell flat. Anyone could enjoy it for what it was, but I certainly wouldn't call it a must-see film. I don't think I would have enjoyed it any more at 14 than I did at 29.

This was a script in need of a little more polishing before it was filmed to smooth some stilted dialog and either make clear what was going on (double framing is hard) or to tweak the plot and setting. I can't praise it as a whole.

I can, however, praise the gorgeous 'fantasy sequences' which are epicly awesome and remind me a lot of manga and anime, only live action. There's no question that the director is skilled and the effects are above top-notch.
