SUICIDE SQUAD (2016) - POST-RELEASE THREAD - Page 8

post #351 of 1308

I never expected to see a movie as bad as Gods of Egypt this year but this one certainly gives that piece of garbage a run for it's money.

GODS OF EGYPT IS WONDERFUL!!!

He actually had a throwaway line at one point saying he just liked wearing it, i think? 

 

The edit of the first 40 mins or so is mind-bending. Story-wise, they could have started the movie with the scene of Waller introducing Enchantress to the military brass. The parade of music videos for the backstories didn't work too well.

 

Put me down for "I'd like to see a longer cut" too. The cast brought their A game, for the most part (especially/even Kinneman, Courtney and Will Smith), so I wouldn't mind some more story for many of the characters. I read there was quite a bit of Joker footage cut; this is probably a good thing as I didn't think Leto ultimately brought anything interesting to the role other than the ridiculous ink on him. That could have been any crime boss / gangster.

Let's not forget SCOTTISH Gerard Butler.

Ah yes the already fabled Suicide Squad: Good Edition that WB decided to save for home video release.
post #356 of 1308

The cover for the Suicide Squad blu make no mention of an alternate cut, unfortunately. Maybe they're saving it for a double dip. No word on the features/deleted scenes yet.

Also, I'm going to start a Change.org petition banning "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Fortunate Son" from use in any motion pictures.

post #357 of 1308
David Ayer already said as much. But he's got no choice. Bad mouthing WB and this released version is the equivalent of committing a career suicide. (Remember Josh Trank anyone??)

Unless of course WB is going to do another dick move and embarrass Ayer with a "yeah we have another cut for you even though we said there wasn't one".

Also, I totally didn't realize that I was whining in the Rogue One thread!  I usually click on these threads based on the latest comment, so I just run with it!  Sorry!

The fact that you assumed I was mad at you and apologized and Freeman immediately twirled his moustache are so wonderfully appropriate. Never change, CHUD!

I'M SORRY!!!

(I just assumed you were annoyed at people in general! I'M SORRY!!!)
post #361 of 1308
I AM!

STOP APOLOGIZING!

OR MOVE TO CANADA!

It's great up here. We make a lot of cool movies, like, uh, this one...

I think most of the songs are from warner music. I think?

I actually really like that line, and it made me wish we got more of Croc in the actual film.

Can we put "The Real Slim Shady" on that list. The only song cue that made me embarrassed for the film.

No movie should ever use Bohemian Rhapsody again unless it's a movie specifically about Queen. 

post #366 of 1308

They cut out the shot of Katana's sword leaking souls didn't they?

post #367 of 1308
Yes.

I like how Ayer defends this theatrical cut by saying "the flow of the movie is the highest master."

 

But that's the problem, dude! The movie has NO flow! Everything about this god-awful editing DETRACTS from the flow!

post #370 of 1308
Ayer is protecting his career. It's the smart move.
post #371 of 1308

I get it. I just think I wouldn't have been able to resist being a bit more subversive or, like, aware in my comments.

 

Maybe when he was talking about the flow his heart was filled with sarcasm.

post #372 of 1308
Maybe Ayer wants to make more movies, unlike Trank.

It depends on who is playing Mike Myers.

post #374 of 1308

I thought Tyler Mane was pretty good in that role.

post #375 of 1308

So what's all this kerfuffle that there used to be a mention of Slipknot being a serial rapist?  Which was one of the major cuts that WB made.  Arguable a good idea.

post #376 of 1308
That sounds terrible. But it does for with the one stupid line of dialogue he has.

Hope Adam Beach is at the beach spending that cheque!
post #377 of 1308
SPOILER SPACE


I really wanted someone to say "Who the fuck was that?" when Slipknot gets head blown off.

Would have been a great use of the one PG-13 F bomb you are allowed.
post #378 of 1308
I liked how everyone gets elaborate descriptions, and then we get "that's Slipknot. The man who can climb anything!", and he just had a dumb grappling hook.

It's GENIUS.

And I'm definitely in the anti-Leto camp. I really didn't think anyone could make the Joker boring, but he gave it his best shot.

Hey! You can't criticize a method actor!
post #380 of 1308

It strikes me as weird that the example of threats they need to protect against is evil Superman, basically a GOD, and their plan to defeat that is a 100 pound girl with a baseball bat, a guy who throws boomerangs that are much less effective than a spec ops guy with an assault rifle, and a guy who's good at climbing stuff. 

 

I know it's sort of nitpicking, but the logic behind the Squad makes less sense the bigger the threat you're facing, so to frame it like that was weird. 

post #381 of 1308
They also already have a guy who can beat Superman: Batman.
post #382 of 1308
To be fair, the idea of the Suicide Squad has always been kinda iffy, and Harley Quinn was never a particularly sensible choice for the team.

True.  But the choice of the two villains being evil Gozer goddess and evil Superman is specifically stupid.

Suicide Squad wants to be offbeat and cool, the off-kilter cousin with the motorcycle and the extensive vinyl collection to the core DC universe, but you quickly realize that that the motorcycle is just for show and that it can’t actually name the members of the bands it claims to love.
Hee hee! Gold.
post #386 of 1308

Remember when Ayer was all offended by the idea that the reshoots were a bad sign, and that the studio LOVED the movie and just wanted to make it even better?

Ayer deserves an Oscar for all the work he's putting into it.

She sold a lot of tickets, though.

Not to mention the fact that being a check against Superman or the Justice League was never the squad's raison d'etre in the comics - they were pretty much a jumped-up black ops team that was disposable and could be easily disavowed by the government. They generally did stuff like toppling rogue state regimes and counterintelligence work, not duking it out with Aquaman.

post #389 of 1308
Anyone else think that "we need a plan in case the next Superman is the enemy" jive was just the sales pitch Waller gave to get her personal hit squad signed off on and funded? These are dirty people who won't be missed if a dirty job goes wrong.

And the mission wasn't even to stop Enchantress it was just to get Waller out of there. Who knows what the initial plan to stop her was before Waller was captured.
post #391 of 1308

I love Will Smith is all bummed out and like "Well...  We almost did it."

 

Almost did what?  Got Waller out?  That was your big incredible mission, to escort Waller from one floor of a building to the top floor and put her on a chopper?  That's it?

 

Well guys, we almost did it.  We ALMOST didn't fuck up this incredibly basic, EASY mission.

I mean...yeah, pretty much. To be fair I don't think they knew about the zombies going in.

The weird thing is that we got a more faithful Resident Evil movie here than the RE Anderson films. 

post #395 of 1308

Whatever Enchantress was doing needed to be alot weirder. That cave promised horror and mysterious unknowns;  lovecraftian perhaps, like the Hellboy 1 ending.

 

Giant sky tentacles > Again with the sky portal beam

 

I can't remember if all the bubbly-head monster people dropped dead the moment the Enchantress was vanquished, but I bet they shot it

post #396 of 1308
those bubbly-heads were wonderful

Basically just Chitauri with bubbly-heads!

so, automatically better
post #397 of 1308
I am so offended by your racist chitari comment. You remember that moment when the group of Avengers line up together for the first time as a totally cohesive team, and that one chitari takes off his cool face mask thing and he's got this weird gross skull looking alien face and he goes "Raaaaaaah!" At the avengers and the hulk goes "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!" And you cum right there in your pants because against all odds some way somehow this moment exists and it's AWESOME?

Now, do you remember that same scene in suicide squad? No, you don't. Because our introduction to them is you going "is it covered in barnacles or what's the deal here..." And then they attack and get cut down, and then they attack in the office and that's more or less it for them.

The chirtari are sort of interesting and neat to look at despite overall being generic. Bubble head guys are people with bubble heads. How boring.

Apologize Nooj, right now I demand it. I watched Bound upon command you owe me one.
post #398 of 1308
sorry

busy

for I lost my car

The bubbly-heads just looked so clueless! It's cute! They're such random nonsense... unlike the Chitauri who are really generic monster skeleton creatures x 1000000
post #399 of 1308

You lost your car because I stole it and I'm about to run you over for your cowardice.  

post #400 of 1308
So I guess I didn't lose it. Someone took it.

Thank you freem
