Suicide Squad pre-release discussion thread - Page 46
I'm honestly surprised about what they say regarding Robbie's Harley not landing any of her comic moments. Of course, it's only one person's opinion (for now, at least).
I haven't seen EOW but I haven seen FURY. It's not a bad movie at all, but it is a really tough film (as in bleak).
Reviews are HARSH.
there are already so many reviews emphasizing strongly how they think this movie is mediocre or downright bad, it's interesting to read the few positive ones and think "Oh, that kinda sounds like the movie I was expecting/hoping for."
I don't know if the negative reviews are throwing the baby (a committed aesthetic and vibe, interesting characters, supposedly decent action beats) out with the bath water (messy editing, run-of-the-mill plotting) or if it's the other way around, but it's kind of interesting so far.
regardless, definitely seems like the film has major issues in the story and editing departments.
already a bunch of comparisons to GotG and how SS falls so very short of that standard but then those reviews go on to criticize SS for some of the same exact shit that was in GotG. maybe the execution is just really that bad in SS, I dunno, seems like a bit of Marvel vs. DC bias at work there, though.

Dammit. As much as I love the stuff Marvel's been putting out, this is one of the few comic properties that I actually had some of that dang nostalgic investment in. Still 100% going to check it out when I can and hope maybe some of the BvS madness that seems to be going around rubs off on me.
I did enjoy the Ultimate Cut of BvS, though. It still gives me hope for the DCEU.
That's a heartening review. And not one mention of his kid and/or divorce!
So from the reviews and rumors of reshoots....apparently WB's strategy is to hire established directors, give them a free hand during production, and then take away the film and hack it up in post.
And then tell the world that you put filmmakers first and let them do whatever they want with their movie.
Despite all of the bad reviews, it's heartening to see a lot of praise for Will Smith because I've missed him as a lead in a movie. The guy is a proper movie star and is one of the few actors working today who can elevate the poorest material (which I hear he does here). I'm tempted to still see this anyway, just for him.
DC is a mess. They're not winning anymore.
Had a lot of hope for this and Bourne as saving the summer.
At least there's Pete's Dragon, Kubo and the Two Strings, Sausage Party, and the very solid looking Hell or High Water.
I'm guessing they wanted to save him for the Batman solo movie.
Actually, my real honest idea is I have no fucking idea.
King Tut or bust.
Speaking of faygo, Im amazed that there has never been a comic about the Gathering of the Juggalos taking place in Gotham City.
I mean, the comedy potential is ripe in such a concept...a bunch of idiots in clown paint throwing a celebration in Batman's own city?
Thats gotta end up with Batman awkwardly trying to explain to Comissioner Gordon why he just beat the shit out of hundreds of people.
I'd actually be up for this if they could do something interesting with him. Apparently the comics version incensed The Riddler so much, as he felt his schtick was being stolen, that he actually teamed-up with Batman to capture King Tut. I quite like that idea.
