Great adaptation that redeems the true essence of these characters **SPOILERS**Back when Suicide Squad (2016) hit theaters I was elated to see a comic book film that is finally getting a movie adaptation and of all things, it was DC's Suicide Squad. What can go wrong with Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Croc, Katana, and Captain FREAKING Boomerang?? Well, a lot can go wrong with it. And not just go wrong. Terrible wrong. So wrong that I'm in the club that wants a directors cut to see what the actually vision could of been so I can change my mind on such a horribly plotted movie.Several years go by and now we get James Gunn's "The" Suicide Squad. And oh boy, was this a ride to remember. I loved the use of many villains as canon fodder, and the attention to detail that each character truly develops as the movie progressed. As far as negatives go...

James Gunn Presents . . " HOMICIDE IS A MANY SPLENDOURED THING 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️😅 " A -BIG- Screen -Micro- Review. Viewed August 16, 2021.High Points : 1. "PEACEMAKER" : The cheeky & sneaky', yet unequivocally -{ Bold, "Fresh", & Delicious }- narrative swipe at the long, long, long standing -Imperialist- tendencies ; but -even- more significantly, "Hypocricies & Triple Standards" . . . Of -PAST- United States Governments. 2. Simply-put : basically -"Everything"- the { Stunningly 💣💥❗} Talented Margot Robbie, ( 'Harley Quinn' ) does ; with an 'Extra-special' mention for her -protracted- "Escape From Coronel" fight scene. 3. Daniela Melchoir ( 'Ratcatcher-two' ) : This peculiarly endowed 'Anti-heroine' has a seiously -Bizarre- talent... but she, along with Idris Elba's 'Bloodsport', the just bespoke Margot's 'Harley' ( -and Others- ) ...end up bringing a whole lot of "Unexpected, & Genuine" -{ HEART }- to 'The Suicide Squad'.Mixed Feelings : As a 'doting' parent, I'm going to come clean and tell you that I had a definite problem with the fact that I really, really -{ DID }- enjoy this -Certifiably...

1/10: Everything wrong with the industry...
Friday, August 6, 2021

Everything wrong with the industry today... Man oh man. I don't even know where to begin. All I know is once I saw the cast for this movie, it was either going to be sneakily very good, or absolute garbage, and i'm sad to report it's the latter.First off, movie starts off with no kind of character building and just straight word vomit of exposition, versus the stylish ways they introduced us last iteration. And then first couple lines in, you can tell what kind of new age nonsense this was going to be, nowhere near the vein of any top superhero films. Or even strictly DC films lol.Tone, right off the bat felt super weird and try-hard. Almost as if James intentionally made a very bad mock version of Guardians of the Galaxy. A "blockbuster" movie with Pete Davidson and John Cena couldn't be destined for greatness imo, and I think I...

Oddly paced with forced humour So the movie begins by basically throwing you into the action then slows down to show the recruitment process. Once that's done we're thrown back right into the action only to be slowed down again. It's almost like you're about reach 'climax' and you stop to explain how you got there, which really put me off the movie especially right at the end with bloodshot's character (those super knees though) who we see land in front of cena after seeing all the fight with flag and about to shoot ratcatcher 2.The jokes don't land most of the time. Dick jokes are all over the movie. Unnecessary sex scene inserted. Gory for the sake of making it gory.I felt the movie didn't have the heart, It was a Popcorn movie except you have to see the blood popping out of everywhere. They tried to make it heartfelt...

10/10: Gory, Fun and a Breath...
Saturday, August 7, 2021

Gory, Fun and a Breath of fresh air The Suicide Squad is an upgrade in every conceivable way when compared to the 2016 movie. Its also a really fun, gory, colorful and fresh take on the DC universe when compared to the dull, dark and overly edgy garbage of Movies like Batman vs Superman. As well as that, its nice to see a cast of characters that would likely never see the light of day in any other DC movie, Polka Dot man being a prime example. The casting itself was also really well done with Daniela Melchior being the standout to me.Overall I loved this movie, it was such a breath of fresh air in, at times, today's over saturated superhero movie genre and I would highly recommend that people go see this film in cinemas for a truly unforgettable experience.
