X-men Apocalypse


The usual suspects Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicolas Holt, Even Peters,James McAvoy, Sophie Turner with McGuyver’s Lucas Till (was he in the past ones?)

I don’t have much to say about this, other than we find out how  Charles Xavier becomes bald.

The plotline stinks, why does it seem centered on Mistique to me? Wasn’t crazy about Angel though glad he now has the sharpened wings. And s a few days later I can’t remember much (nothing that matters) about it.

It’s set in the 80s and starts in Ancient Egypt during a transfiguration Ritual (why not just call Professor McGonagal?)

Some ‘Gods’ or shall I say priests with the masks of their gods as well as soldiers around are protecting the body.

One of these soldiers who is supposed to protect what is going on is in on a plan against the ritual, and upon attacking gets folded up into a ball.

Later Charles Xavier’s school is burning down and Quicksilver goes to save everyone, one being a french bulldog which love the face like it’s in a car and its jsut not letting go of that slice of pizza!

Amusing the movie makes fun of it self!! saying the 3rd one always sucks and honestly.. I’m VERY glad I didn’t waste my money on it seeing it in the theater! I waited for cable!  Definitely a poor (below poor?) outing.

and EssexCorp. What is the Essex corp? I never heard of that before or don’t remember .

Honestly I’m not crazy about this set of X-men films… I like the originals better, but then I do need to rewatch those for a Class Cuts installment

Supergirl


While Supergirl was on CBS, the only episode I watched was the Flash crossover. being as I watch Flash I figured it might be a good idea to watch in case something carries over from the Supergirl episode. With this one episode..

To me in the coming attractions and even this one episode I really could not stand the actress that played Supergirl,to me she came off as insecure/self conscious and there was something else I  still can’t quite pinpoint what it is or was, I could barely watch crossover episode, even with Flash in it.  Also I wasn’t crazy about the overall pace and storyline of the cross over.

So maybe others felt the same way as I in one way or another, and so with the show

Now on the CW for season 2, I thought I’d give it a try (well when its posted to the free on demand channel)

I still can’t figure out why CBS had the show in the first place, especially when all the DC comics shows are doing so well on the CW.

before I get to Supergirl herself  I will say I definitely did not like the actor portraying Superman…in this. I do wish ‘Smallville’ would make an appearance in some way ..sorry I should say Tom Welling and anyone else from that show, After all, this is a multi-earth/dimension universe. Well so far no ‘Smallville’ but we get Dean Cain!!!

So far she still comes off as… maybe its not insecurity but awkward to me and that’s WHEN she’s Supergirl. This is even as I finish writing this up in March (of season 2 with the finale likely to air in May). I would think the ‘Awkward’ and anything I didn’t like about a character or actor would have subsided by now. I do in a sense like the actress, she’s cute Kara wise, even when she’s perky and I hate perky but for her it works. There is still a little something there that bothers me when she’s Supergirl. I will also say the show is a lot easier to watch than when it was on  CBS.

Well if I didn’t watch it before or skipped an episode here and there… I’ve been making sure  I watch each week now that the charming Chris Wood (Vampire Diaries, Containment) in blatant CW fashion has yet again recycled (or is it re-purposed) him into another CW show. For him I’ll watch and see how his story arc goes. Plus I’m waiting for more crossovers of the collective shows…

I heard something about a possible musical but I don’t recall if it was flash and supergirl (which sounds really annoying to me) or maybe the crossover (nope… thankfully)… but I think a musical episode would have been better with Arrow (as long as John Barrowman was in it)

I do hope we get a mini movie with all the heroes in one show (one epiosde) at some point…maybe a 2 hour TV movie special. That would work well as a follow up on (or lead up to) a crossover story or the best way is to finish a season, and even better use for a series finale!

Hello @CW @DC do you hear me!!!! I’ve got some ideas for your show(s)!!! Make.It. Happen.!!!!

(Can we make the #ArrowMusical happen?  I saw @Stephen Amell & @JohnBarrowman singing at SDCC   (San Diego Comic Con)…

Definately IMPROVED (and saved)

 

 

the CW Invasion ~ Heroes vs Aliens


Based on the 1988 comic book miniseries Invasion! event from Keith Giffen, Bill Mantlo, Todd McFarlane, and Bart Sears, the plot of the story is The Dominators descended on Earth to bring an end to the “threat” of Earth’s burgeoning meta-human community.

So Supergirl kicks the whole thing off, however I don’t think I qualify it as cross over material. We just get what turns out to be a few time holes that pop into this scene or that and at the end (like the last 30 seconds…literally!) Barry and Sisco show up . For me that’s just a Supergirl episode, now if they had popped in half way through and participated more in the epiosde I would consider that a cross over. So as far as her episode goes, I’m not happy with it. If this were still on CBS I would chalk it up to that but sadly for me Barry and Sisco feel like they were just added to the story at the end and of course the time holes too. 

I will be re-watching the shows but this one I won’t as I do not recall anything in it having to do with the Aliens (aside from Supergirl herself and Mon-El)

 

I hope the Flash’s entry into the crossover event will be better.

Classic Cuts~ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles :Out of the Shadows


Welcome  to Multi-screen Mo_T_Vision’s new signature series,  Classic cuts

you can find my criteria for choosing the titles here

 

TMNT

Having watched the original versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 1990s hearing the way the new turtles speak, just irritates me. I thought they sounded more ‘surfer’/stoner speak in the ’90s but maybe not as much as I thought, unless the cartoon made them sound more like that.

I didn’t know the movies were originally based on comics, I thought it was a movie and cartoon before it became a comic.

The original starred Judith Hoag  as April O’beil and Elias Koteas as Casey Jones while Corey Feldman was the voice of Donatello  & James Saito played Shredder

Enjoy the original 1989 movie via amazon 

 

The Secret of the Ooze

1991

the 2 mutated creatures are a snapping turtle with spikes and I guess a werewolf.. which looks more like it should be in a movie version of the arcade game Rampage! Which Co-starred Ernie Reyes Jr. The Secret of the Ooze

Between the 2 originals I can see why they updated them. Though I refused to see the new one when it came out,

maybe now I will as I hear good things about the sequel besides ‘Arrow’ actor Stephen Amell is in it.

Here’s the amazon link to watch

 

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3…

1993   PG    1:36       Paige Turco as April O’Neil

I didn’t remember that there was a 3rd movie, so I guess while I’m on a Turtle tear I should see if I can find a copy

Was this subtitled “Secret of the Samurai”? If not, no idea where that came from

An old mysterious scepter causes April to switch places with an ancient Samurai, so our Turtle friends have to travel through time to feudal Japan to rescue their friend.

Japan 1603 which at first just shows a red sun in the background and for too long as well, then leads into a fight that fades from a red hue to full color.

I can already see why I forgot about this. It doesn’t even look like the turtles from the first two movies. Whoever is in the costumes could not have been pro martial artists it looks more like something that would have been made for Syfy channel when it first came out! (Watch the 2 previous movies you will see what I mean. Like if you watch Donatello with the Bo staff, doesn’t look like he’s twirling it but just shaking it from side to side (WTF?!?!) Most of the movie is just a bunch of cheesy poses. Also their faces and heads are not the same shapes nor are they the same color I think they are lighter from the original, plus where I think the original suits were more mate these are glossy. Then there’s splinter, definitely has got to be a new suit or animatronic (I think the later as I don’t think there was a fully head to toe shot of him). Talk about looking like a sewer rat! This one does, the previous incarnation of the character looked cleaner and less frazzled.

splinter…Lampshade…”he made another funny”

as my friend Rich (from youtubes’s The B.A.R.) would say.. another to toss in the pit of eternal stench.

Try the Cartoon, the first 2 season is on Amazon

Not only were there toys of various sorts (Remember the Pizza shooting  ‘Turtle Tank’ (or so I called it) was it the same as the Party Mobile?? Here’s one of  what looks like a new one with the Ghostbusters  (though my intention was including the older ones) Here’s one of the original comics

 

 

Its an all new Turtle!

The first time I came across the 2012-2014  ‘cartoon’ I have to grab a Ginger Ale every time as I got nausea everytime I saw it! For one CGI is not a ‘cartoon’ and these look like nothing but trash, like someone’s failed attempt using a new program, or an old apple computer (like 90s old). They are more an exercise for children to teach them their shapes rather than being characters. As for that theme song, (first time hearing this version) I’ve puked all over my monitor!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  

2014    PG-13      1:41      Blu-ray     Sci-fi     Action

Megan Fox & Will Arnett  William Fincher  Johnny Knoxcille (Leonardo voice) Alan Ritchson  as Raphael Tohoru Masamune  Whoopi Goldberg Will Arnett

I originally never intended to watch this one as I loved the originals so much; but after watching them, I can see why they were updated.  I originally boycotted watching this because they sounded like thugs and I couldn’t stand it, still can’t they should sound like surfer dudes period. Also because it should have been called the (Not so) Teenage Mutant Ninja TANKS because of the size of them. Well once I heard ‘Arrow’ Stephen Amell was cast in the sequel as Casey Jones, I thought it was a perfect fit! So needless to say I’ll be watching the sequel to this (at least) if only because “Arrow’ is in it, so I figured to give in and watch the update of the original movie or shall I say more like a reboot and see how it went, and if it would be as bad as I thought.

The start of the movie has a graphic novel inspired intro story. Shredder and his foot clan have their claws in the Burroughs of NYC from the cops to the politicians. Their diabolical plan is to release some toxin  from the spear of a building  and be the only ones with a antidote to bring the world to it’s knees.  We don’t actually get a look at the turtles ‘closely’ until around 15 minutes in when they are scoping out some security monitors with a little funny moment there.

What is a Hashi? The turtles fight (argue) more I think than they did in the original, Oh sh** what is that! Wait that’s splinter… HORRIFYING~ looking at splinter makes me nausea, couldn’t they have used the old costume or an animatronic creature? This one is just scary looking, and I’m usually the one that thinks the real rodents are cute, and can never understand and laughs at those who jump on tables when they see a mouse or rat. I guess this incarnation of Splinter is what they see!    I’m pretty sure in this he’s purely a motion capture creation. I think the  turtles may be so as well, or at least there was one point that made me think so. Now as for Shredder’s look… pardon the pun, but I do have to shred it and not in a good way! Shredder looks more like a robot than a person I can go on with he maybe thinks he’s a power ranger megazord, or even Edward Scissorhands (maybe he watched that movie way too much!)  Not sure who came up with the Shredder scissor-hands look, but WAY too much buddy. As they say less IS more!

So far the character ‘costumes’ are my only gripes, as well as the Turtles NOT sounding like the Turtles. Where’s all the goofiness especially from Michelangelo? He’s always been my fave now… it feels as if he’s a pod person. It feels there’s no heart other than who April O’Neil turns out to be. Also wasn’t that a new twist on the story or the actual comic origins of it?

Raphael seems overly aggressive for what seems for no reason. Donatello wears glasses, WHY?  because he’s the smart one of the group? What a cliche and Other than their masks and a little joking from Mikey all the turtles seem to be the same personality instead of very different individual ones.

What. The.  OMG it’s a wall of boomboxes (or should I say ghetto blasters.. was there a difference between the two or just depended on the music played by them?) Oh for SHAME Mr. Saks… tsk tsk.  between the bulk and adding other items to them even when they were ‘younger’  Donatello looks like a ghostbuster with whatever that is on his shell.

Hogoshai (sp?) is a great guardian spirit.

“Dashing through the snow in a 4 turtle open trailer, over hills we go, fighting all the way…”

WOW! Finally we get a Cowabunga from Mikey! The Turtles of the 90’s were so much cooler as far as personality. These ones just seem more like brutes they may as well be in the foot clan.  The best part of the whole film was the snow chase, which  I think should have came after the last scene (on the building)as a sort of game of keep away and the climax of fighting shredder wasn’t even a thrill, and likely after a few days to a week will have forgotten.

I think I still enjoyed the original 2 more, Raph’s speech didn’t feel genuine and sounded too forced.

TMNT 2: Out of the shadows

2016          PG-13      Bu-ray       1:52

Stephen Amell, Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, WWE star Sheamus as Rocksteady

This I am seeing only because Stephen Amell is in it and plays Casey Jones. Wait, was that a batmobile I just saw?!?! (the scene when transporting shredder)

In the beginning I am so far loving Stephen’s Casey Jones, its definitely a nice transition to his usual Broody Oliver/Arrow acting.   and Wait Turtle Dumpster….dumbfounded but wait wasn’t it pizzas that it used to shoot? But then again Pizza isn’t an actual weapon unless you make the cheesy like a spider web and someone else already has that copyrite!

OH…MY…Gods!!! I know I was ripping on the last one for not being like the 90s ones that they were more enjoyable well.. except that very last one… but I meant it only as the personalities and a few other things but they are KILLING me with the 90s music  ‘All I wanna do is put my boom boom in your zoom zoom … Shake your rump!”  (that was killing me with laughter at the lyrics) and let’s not forget about Ice ICe Baby! (I swear that song wilkl haunt my generation for the rest of our lives!

What was the name of that villain that looked like a brain? or was it Brain? (or am I just thinking Pinky and the Brain…sorry)   ah its Krang!

and Almost fell on the floor laughing at the turtles reaction to Casey.. and they called him Friday the 13th! Called Them swamp things  that now live in an amusement park!  (one of my favorite parts of the movie and I think most of them came in the beginning)

So shredder is tasked to put together what I’m calling the ‘Space vase’ (because 1 I forget what it’s called and 2 honestly.. tell me that doesn’t look at least in a way like a freaking vase) and this turn I think I like Be Bop and rocksteady a bit more.

There’s nothing really memorable like the sleigh ride from the last one. Frankly as soon as it was over I still only remember some of the beginning parts (like the dumpster) and Stephen Amell lighthearted humorous parts

The rental surprisingly  includes some extras

Order for your library  or watch via Amazon video

Now I can complain about the reboots, but I did say it needed an updated, aside from the storylines which weren’t great but at least was an effort and I guess the sky needle part was cool but turtles playing leap frog? so stupid! As for the tanks.. I mean turtles… any chance they could at least lose some weight and shell if there’s another  movie?

Thank you Chobot!! Dude! really thare’s barely any action and apparently this guy is paid by Hollywood to drink their brainless kool-aid!

I do agree with the fights of the old looking cheesy, but at least there was real fights (choreagraphed) and I agree that Leaf frog crap was stupid.

Doctor Strange


2016   PG-13      Marvel  115 minutes  Action/Adventure/Fantasy

stars       Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams  Mads Mikklesen, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benjamin Bratt       imdb.com

 WOW! That Opening certainly beat DiCaprio’s bendy Inception!

 The shifty Scenery is more mind blowing than just bending.

So the cause of the accident that ruins Doctor Strange’s hand, he was driving not only super fast but talking on the phone as well. I honestly feel bad more for that car than the doc. However as far as the Doc’s hands go, I can relate in a way.. as I have been having a problem with my right since the beginning of 2016….to the point I quite often get very frustrated as I cannot pick things up, or write.

Well there is certainly a lot to take in during this movie as far as the scenery goes. There were times like those scenes with the moving walls I didn’t know what to focus on, or where to focus. For this movie it may be best to sit in a row more towards the  middle of the theater!

During The Doctor’s research into getting his hands back, a file is taken from archives for him, on Jonathan Pangborn (played by

Bemjamin Bratt)   who was a former patient of Strange’s that was somehow paralyzed, and turned away by the doc; however he some how found a way to be able to walk again.

Surrender Control to gain control

Doctor Strange    ~ ‘What’s in the tea….LSD?  (after a trippy scene.)

Ancient    Have you seen that before in a gift shop?

No one knows how old the Ancient One really is,  only that she’s Celtic (me thinks Druid, is more likely)

There’s Sanctums in New York, London and Hong Kong that protect the world

They use the mirror dimension  to practice and observe as what happens there does not interfere with this reality, however dark sorcerers can be more powerful  in it

The infinite  multiverses = infinite dangers

 (no really? gods that sounds too much like the over done Spider-man  “With Great power…..” line)

There are mild funny instances  but not like the laugh out loud  ones we get from the Avengers movies characters.

Kaecilius: Mister 

Strange: Doctor

Kaecilius: Mister Doctor

Strange: Strange

Kaecilius: We’ll see

However they did the ‘moving’ sets practical, CGI or a bit of both I LOVE them! I hope the blu-ray will have a Behind the Scenes of how they did that in the special features. Plus I can’t wait to do some lay pause/slow motion to see it unravel slower. The make-up FX love the purple and ‘scales’ around Mads eyes (almost makes me think Captain Hook from Once Upon a time will show up and call him Gator or crocodile.)

Another Favorite is the Cloak of Levitation, it most certainly has a sense of humor of its own and those are the times the room was a well of laughter! (especially during a fight scene) Then there was that set of hand…errr make that body cuff.

Am I the only one, but does Dormomu, the face in the stars look a lot like Thanos to you?

Now THAT…Was an adventure! Though I’m not sure if I like this or Civil war better than the other, but then they are 2 types of movies.I’m somewhat speechless aside from the notes I took while watching the movie, so  I think I’m going to need another view as I think the first viewing put me into a shock of sorts.

 

Time Kills Everything

2 Easter Egg scenes- one with Thor and the other well you’ll just have to wait to watch!

PRE-ORDER from Amazon Video

 

For those of you with an Alamo Draft house near you as an Alamo Victory member I am a Victory member. This movie marked a milestone and I reached the Fighter Level which got me a free non-alcoholic  milkshake. So I ordered a Chocolate Peanut Butter one and found Bliss in a shake!I think they make it from scratch as there were chopped peanuts in it and not globs of peanut butter (or syrup) like most places do.

It could have been much worse, as researching the character  I came upon  a variety of comic book Boomerang’s costume incarnations and I think with at least the first 2, you’d agree with me that they look like an airline stewardess/steward costume!! The one on the left is even worse than the one previously mentioned!  I came across this mock up of Jai someone did.  I just wish those from the D.C. shows could be in the movies esp. the Arrow & Flash actors and those on their shows)

  Will smith Playing Deadshot (keep trying to call him Deathstroke!)  I’m surprised they’ll cover up an A (or b?) List actor’s face in a movie!  Basically This guy doesn’t miss, probably even when someone nudges his arm. The conflicted baddie is  a concerned dad by night trying to do right by his daughter and assassin by day (umm shouldn’t that be the other way around?) Will Smith’s costume & bald head for the movie looks more like Deadpool,  especially  with the description from the below video that, he doesn’t shut up… sound familiar?… 15 Things You Didn’t Know About Deadshot

Looking for an image or 2 for Slipknot in this I ended up with a a bunch of stuff on the metal Band. He’s a master assassin which utilizes ropes he made while working at a chemical company where he developed the chemical for his durable rope which he later uses as Slipknot. 12 Things You Need To Know About Slipknot

 

El Diablo  played by Jay Hernandez manipulates fire. I’m guessing this will be the Chato Santana incarnation of the villain. From one of the trailers I guess he has to get mad in order to ‘Flame on’ (yeah sorry couldn’t resist using the line)  squelched his fire conjuring to a slitary flame after the horrors he inflicted on those he loved.

Katana  the martial artist & fully trained samurai with a strong moral code  wields the soul taker sword which grants  the ability to capture the soul of the beings it kills and communicate with that soul including that of her deceased husband. I’ve also heard that she’s like the den mother of the crew, which makes her Flagg’s #2 .katana-trivia-facts-need-to-know/

Killer Croc played by Adewale Akinnuoye- Agbaje is the the croc in the sewer, Belle Reeves that is. He’s a team layer especially when water is involved. This look in the movie is not so menacing a make-up compared to this image here… which actually freaks me out! I guess especially being I had a dream once  of wrestling a croc after watching Lake Placid or Rouge one too many times! I did wake up to laugh at myself though! Croc aka Waylon Jones has a genetic condition of atavism that give him his crocodilian look. He’s often depicted as having cannibalistic tastes, but then wouldn’t you expect that from a villainous croco-person? He’s usually hired as the muscle by other villains and is supposed to have heightened reflexes.   Killercroc I thought was some knock off of ‘The Thing’ from fantastic four

Cara Delevingne plays the sweet June Moon aka the Enchantress  a freelance artist/archeologist looks to be an assistant or love interest to Joel Kinneman’s  Rick Flag, and is some how possessed by a witch. However reading the character’s biography  I think I may have figured out what the supernatural (black goop) in the first trailer may be.

but  Where’s Common in the trailer who was photographed during the shoot all tattooed he plays some I underworld criminal , which before seeing the movie I find out to be “Monster T”

The Review(s)

So I went to see it at Alamo Draft House, and it definately changes the movie going experience, they showed clips and things of various Suicide Squad related stuff, including where we have seen them  before like clips from CW shows like Arrow, The Flash and Smallville (as well as note as to who played them) also the various cartoon incarnations. There was some sort of Super cat v batcat  but I missed getting the youtube channel as well as some dance tropes dressed as the Worst heroes ever!  Wonder Woman trailer, I doubt I’ll be seeing that other than as a rental or on cable! Looks like a big yawn and what I’ve seen so far, Gal Gardot does not work for me as Wonder Woman…

Suicide Squad Joker n Harlee alamo

Alamo Draft house employees getting in on the fun

So the summer’s last big hype has come and is Dominating the domestic boxoffice and setting records oversea, it has even surpassed Captain America Civil war’s box office!!!  The only 2 movies maybe 3 I was excited about this year were Civil War, Suicide Squad & War Craft, tho I never read the comics or played that game but I do love my Marvel men, and a certain Viking & former Vampire (that’s in warcraft)! Then there’s the triple ‘J’…Jared, Jai & Joel I’ve been a Leto fan since the (0s watching most if not all of his movies. and have a few of 30 seconds to mars albums. (Oh wait also have yet to see Star Trek, and then there’s Fantastic Beasts coming out the day before my birthday!!  The Suicide Squad is the first decent movie from the DC universe after the Bale Bat, not to mention so much more fun than any of their movies. Lighten up people!  Thankfully we get a break from Zack Snyder and possibly the reason this was actually enjoyable! I’ll bet it will have mixed reviews depending on how much research one puts into before actually seeing the movie, yet at the same time trying NOT to read anything so nothing will be ruined.  I at least knew what I was getting into, which sounds like some did not.

First off it’s a DC NOT Marvel movie so no high expectations on any front,

  1. There’s at least a likable cast  3. characters some I’m familiar with and others not so… though I’m sure either or I have seen at some point in the current CW tv shows for Arrow or Flash at least.  4. I KNEW going into seeing the movie the Joker is NOT the antagonist of, nor part of the Squad.

Handling of the characters

So to start things off we meet Deadshot, Harley Quinn & Waller all to each of their own cool tunes. I thought the use of intro music was a great idea, and some of them like Boomerang coming in to ‘Dirty Deeds (don dirt cheap)’ was fitting,

same with the scene where they get their gear back and that goes to the tune of Eminem’s Slim Shade “Guess Who’s Back.. Back again”  and here I was finally able to get a good look at what Deadshot’s collar says  “I am the Light, the Way”  I guess it’s a bible verse or Ghandi saying.

Waller has her binder of our loveable sociopath baddies and here we get more introductions or a little more backstory on those we have already met like “Don’t call me” Floyed aka Deadshot. I’d say we get at least 5 minutes for each.  We also meet June Moon who is ‘possessed’ by Enchantress which is supposed to be a 6000 year old witch,which (and I’m sure those are symbols from the Necronomicon on her headdress) when they are that old, usually have a god complex! Never trust them.  As for all the theories as to who Scott Eastwood was playing… Wrong, Wrong & double Wrong!! He’s not Deathstroke, or nightwing (which were the most popular theories)  and honestly when they mentioned his name inthe movie, it went right over my head, thinking it was a joke to his good looks like a nickname from your army buds! I believe this was a character made just for the movie, as I still have yet to find any information about him in the D.C. verse. Oh and WTF is with Boomerang and the pink Unicorn?? He was also definitely the comedic relief of the movie although Deadshot and Harley were no prudes either, not that it was so dark or humorless that it was like the oppressive Batman  v Superman but he was an addition, and I think should have been the one wearing the jester costume! For some reason the shot of Boomer opening the beer still gives me a chuckle. I still can’t figure out why it seems funny to me either.  I really do hope  most if not all the characters get a spin-off, so long as it’s NOT Snyder. I do have a question…how the hell does Flag know Katana/meet her?

Well isn’t our badass aussie one caggey bugger?! Don’t get too attached to anyone! I’ve read in every Suicide Squad outing (in the comics) someone usually doesn’t come back.  Unlike Marvel who supposedly gives each character equal time (or so I’ve read/heard) D.C. does not  which leads to Katana & Boomerang being so underused.  Character development was quite minimal if at all  and what if Waller delivered what?

So as one can see in the trailers (or at least one of the many with too much in them) in the subway our squad will be up against an N.H.E.  (Non human Entity) but what is this entity? There’s also some sort of creatures I call the black berries who look like a cross between Croc & a Black berry! and so I am giving the movie the alternative title ‘The Kiss of the Blackberries’!

Well Look at that, ‘Hoyt’ from True Blood is now working for “Mr. J”  and his name is ‘?  Frost’ (is this who Arnold was in one of the 80s/90s batman movies?)

All the fun stuff starts about an hour in when they are finally on the mission. Man Deadshot is the bomb outta control!~ and Croc gets to save the day at least once.

I thought there could have been a little more to HOW Harley Quinn fell for the Joker during their sessions, for me there seems to be a big blank missing from the scenes they showed  of their relationship, (I later find out during an interview there was a lot more material that was shot for the relationship)  I remember of the scene between them, one of their sessions, another the vat that makes you clowny looking and one other I remember, but then those mentioned we’ve seen a zillion times in the trailers. Which I have or will likely mention again  there were TOO many trailers, and with that TOO much of the movie was shown. Usually that would be a big point reduction but the jokes in the trailers still gave me a laugh when I saw them in the movie. Sadly most of those were in said trailers as well. I swear I really need to get a hold of someone in Hollywood and explain some of this to them. Too little or too much in your trailer (and too many trailers) could be a detriment to your movie; just as the amount of times we see the trailers, by the time Batman vs Superman was released (and that goes for some other movies as well) EVERY. SINGLE. Commercial. BREAK.  it was shown. I didn’t even want to see it by the time it was out. Then there’s that Batman vs Superman part… the movie was supposed to be a sequel to Man of Steel and it seemed to be more a Batman movie and that fight.. that was no fight, I was quite disappointed. Thankfully Civil war came out and actually gave us a fight, and as  for Suicide Squad, (and the lack of Zack Snyder) 2 hours and 3 minutes were not enough. A couple of other viewers I talked to after the movie give it 5 and another a 6 or 7, so an average grade. I think it deserves a little more than that  at least for one who did not read the comics, plus that includes there were too many trailer (and alot of the movie in them) I was surprised some of the funny parts from the trailers still gave me a laugh.

It’s still a fun movie and worth seeing in the theater even more than once!  DC still has a lot of improving to do and this is proof you don’t need  Zach Snyder. I liked it WAY better than BvS which frankly was way too dark in tone and lighting (I think it was more so than the Bale Bat movies)

I would see spin-offs of at least Captain Bomerang, Deadshot, Harley and Joker as long as it’s those actors

While Harley and Deadshot are great if there’s a sequel  they need less time to let others shine. It’s the squad, NOT the Bullets & bats show

I enjoyed Jared Leto’s Joker or Mr. J as he was called on set, he was maniacally funny in a sense but they also showed too many of his scenes in the trailers.  As far as comparing Leto to Ledger’s Joker, I’d say Leto’s is a cross between Nickolson’s ‘Tame’ 90s joker which was too cartoony (or at least so I remember him as) and  Ledger’s over the top,  Oscar the grouch  look portrayal. While he was great as the joker, I never liked his make-up for it.   Leto’s Joker tattoos didn’t bother me, and actually when I first saw them the “Damaged” on his forehead gave me a laugh. Another thing is there’s a story behind that (& the grill) Batman knocked his teeth out before putting him in Bele Reve after he killed Robin, and The Damaged tat is supposed to be like “hey Batman you damaged me, I”m not pretty anymore”  (source, one of the many links throughout this feature)

here’s an article on why    “Leto’s joker is actually the best on film”

As for Harley Quinn.. I enjoyed herm though would have preferred a bit more material covering her ass, but having checked out other versions of the costume… it could have been worse, it could ahve been the french maid uniform and the black and red jester one I would say wouldn’t cut it unless everyone else is wearing spandex or tights.

Boomerang back around , I think we only get to see one or 2 shots where he uses his name sake weapon and one was a failed attempt. I hope they put more footage of him on the blu-ray special features.

Final verdicts

Are there flaws? Of course  and I’m not even one of the comic geeks so imaging any complaints they might have. One of which I heard was about Enchantress’ costume. There was one I saw in a search or in an article, which included a comic panel and it looked like a good interpretation of it. I still just thank the gods they didn’t put that stewardess version on Jai! The funny thing about that is in an interview he made the same comment about previous incarnations looking like a stewardess.  Speaking of Boomer, I’m glad my friend at You tube channel “The B.A.R.” said he liked Jai’s portrayal  as he is the one person I actually respect their opinion on Movies (there was a co-worker)  after that the only other I take into consideration, and that’s after I’ve seen the movie (I don’t read reviews before hand so I don’t get caught in the hype of other opinions, I want to give you my 100% non-biased review)  is Entertainment Weekly  as what grade they give a movie is not far off, if not spot on to mine grade for the movie(or show) .

These bad reviews I’ve heard about have got to only be from critics who are given the assignment to see a movie, one in which is not likely what they would normally see and later bitterly reviews it. Even if tt’s not a quality story as Civil war, but it is a fun movie, though the editing may have been a little coarse. Thankfully the movie going public has let their voice be heard, the ‘worst’ is it’s average, the best is at least a B

One beef I have, I think they should have had the Ramone’s “I wanna be sedated” playing at least at the end (when we see boomerang through the window of his cell) I thought it would be good for at least a ‘Ha!” laugh.

Just as I’m writing this… WOW! I find  Suicide Squad sets Tuesday Box office record for August, Beast Captain America Civil War!!!

I was surprised after reading these Easter Eggs that I actually recognized one of the characters some how 

B

D.C. vs Marvel

I think DC will figure things out and maybe in a few years 5 maybe 10 become an actual competitor to Marvel’s movies. DC movies still have to learn though (and I know this is just their first ensemble gig, but You need to give each character equal time. It’s the Suicide Squad not the Deadshot, Harley or Rick Flag squad. I enjoyed the movie and if I could, would see it again in the theater! I’d say 2-3 times would be sufficient for those that could see a movie more than once in a theater. (compared to Captain America Civil war I would say would be at least a 5x theater worthy watch)  but then Marvel’s universe is not just in the movies, they carry the stories and characters over to their tv series S.H.I.E.L.D.  and equally divides the time with the characters. Those are just a few of the reasons I finally figured out how DC needs to step up to the bat err plate; if they want to be the power house that Marvel built! While past DC movies have barely been worth the cinematic experience (Christian Bale’s Batman and Suicide squad the exception) or at least maybe only on discount day, They may have been around since the 1930s then why is it their success is better on TV than the big screen? Oh then there’s all the various versions of one character that there’s not just one earth it’s a multiverse,  That there might be another reason. I love that Marvel carries over story lines even characters (as the actor that normally plays them, and is fun to see in other movies or on Tv where you wouldn’t expect them to show.  I can understand that Batfleck can’t show up on Gotham because that is the  coming out of  all these characters.  Also Marvel had Captain America, Iron man and I think Thor out before The Avengers, and we’ve met some of the characters before hand even if only for a little in those movies before Avengers came out. Did we meet any of the Suicide Squad before the movie…No. I think in some sense, Batman vs Superman should have done that (even if it were only for say the less known characters like Slipknot at least)

If what I’m guessing is knock offs in the Marvel roster, (as didn’t come around til I think the 40s or 50s) why does it seem their versions of the characters are better than DC’s incarnations (be they have the same names, likenesses or not) also Marvel  has the better writers/producers & directors?  DC might want to borrow them, or maybe some way hopefully in my lifetime a deal can be done that a marvel vs DC movie is done (ONLY the characters that appeared in the movies.. fans get to vote which actor that played the DC character plays it in the movie, and there is a vote (one per person period) as to their favorite Marvel or DC character.. as well as which company they prefer, that way it’s  a fair way to write who the winner should be, unlike the cheating Batman in vs. Superman.

 

In the dossiers Gotham is in NJ, wait …WHAT?!?!  I always thought Gotham was part of NYC… here’s some more revelations of the movie. Robin ‘s murderer, Scott Eastwood’s role (to which I thought by the name a bit of a joke or cover up for a surprise later in the movie… being as theories were Deathstroke or Nightwing, both of which I’ve heard of, but this character never I don’t think anyone heard of! But at least he had a bigger role than Common’s.  I still have yet to see if it was just for the film or an actual character in the DC universe. But hey, it was nice seeing Clint’s mini me… there’s also a blink & you miss him (literally) cameo which comes in one of Boomerang’s scenes as well as who the real villain in the show is.

Leto tried to out do Ledger and fails… He didn’t try to ‘out do’ and frankly in ways the joker always came off as a ‘mob/gangster’ boss to me…frankly when I first saw Ledger’s I thought he came off as a gangster and now that Leto’s version is the same there’s a problem with it? Yes the Joker is in it and not the villain the squad is up against. But I’m guessing if Harley Quinn is in you need to have the Joker, especially being as you need a recognizable character to draw those who are not familiar with the other characters. aside from those that have been in the DC shows on the CW, I have no idea about any of them other than the Joker, (hell I still occasionally watch the old batman tv show)

Bad-News-Suicide-Squad-Sucks P.s. it’s not as bad as Green Lantern, and as to which Fantastic Four they are talking about I guess 2015.. but I boycotted that one.. Sorry but I saw the original 2 with Chris Evans , and there is NO other Johnny Storm for me! (Ya know I noticed ony bad reviews on sites that do not seem to allow comments…mmmmm)

Frankly if You don’t want to listen to MY review or my friend at The B.A.R. Then at least listen to geek man himself

Trailer reviews

Here’s one person’s overview of the actors and their roles. (I find his deviation from doing his job and complaining about Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn as quite unprofessional. I mean if you ask why would she play that, then WHY did Charlize Theron play ‘Monster’ that was a worse make over (err.. under) frankly I don’t find HQ as a make under. It may not be what I’ve seen and know of the character, but I think it’s a cool take for the character (an updated look?) rather than the slutty maid look I’ve seen, and the cliche jester look.

EASTER EGGS!!!

my friend’s review of the trailer

The Nerdist trailer ‘review’

 suicide-squad-RUMOR spinoffs-joker-captain-boomerang/

skip to the last one…had a chuckle at that

jared-leto on heath-ledger-joker

Captain America & Winter Soldier


Being as I didn’t have the bog when these came out… and sadly the cable movie stations didn’t endlessly show the first 2 captain movies, and what’s up with that anyway.. of course any other movie they do it for but for one that’s at least 5 years old and for those that may need a recap of what has gone on so far (at least in Cap’s movies) they can’t endlessly show it.

So its a week or 2 after seeing Civil War on opening day and I wish I had the money to see it again in the theater… so instead I’m going to rent the previous 2 movies and   thought I’d do a look back review of them .

Captain America the First Avenger

2011  PG-13  2:05  Action, Period,Comics, Origin, Adaptation   Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, Dominick Cooper, Hayley Atwell

The movie starts March 1942 in Tonsberg Norway incursion for the Teseract. Why would you just have one safe guard to guard that treasure? Not to mention the button to open it was found so easily… approximately 10 minutes in Bucky shows up  looking so handsome in his Uniform.

Bucky: Don’t do anything stupid till I get back”
Steve: I can’t, you’re taking all the stupid with you”

He enlists to fight in World War 2  5 times failing all of them.. to short, too skinny and has asthma just to name a few. The little guy with lots of heart gets the chance “to kill some Nazis” when he volunteers for a secret experiment that will transform him into Captain America, a super soldier with a perfect physique and heightened reflexes whose metabolism burns four times faster  than the average person.

Captain’s Pajama’s!  the uniform really does look so, watching some interviews of the cast for the movies  and the guys joking about it.

Steve learns of troop 107 being captured, and seeing him remember that’s Bucky’s. There’s no rescue mission so he goes solo to rescue his friend who is not with the other soldiers but in a lab in a chair, but recognizes him right away so did or didn’t they (Hydra’s) Dr. Zola experiment on him yet?

So the ‘plasma weapons’ are made from the teseract? It dosen’t look any smaller

The Fondue running joke, still a tickler and pretty sure Bucky made sniper with the army.

Oh That’s how Bucky falls out of the train. He uses Cap’s shield when a blast goes off it knocking Bucky out of the train  to hang on to a broken bar to keep from falling to his demise.

Love the ‘backfire’ on Cap’s bike

How’d they make Chris Evans into the scrawny Steve Rodgers?

Find any format you need here via AMAZON

The Winter Soldier

2014     PG-13  2:16 Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, 
Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández 

So Steve Rodgers is running circles (or in this case rectangles) around Sam Wilson when Black Widow shows up

“Hi Boys, either of you know where the Smithsonian is; I’m here to pick up a fossil”

Hydra strikes again in the form the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D and the Winter Soldier who turns out to be Cap’s err.. Steve Rodgers best bud Bucky Barnes 

While on a mission on I forget the ship’s name, Cap has a fight with Georges Batroc played by actual UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre

We learn that Natasha has previously had a run in with the Winter Soldier and why she has a scar on her hip, and tells Steve the soldier is responsible for over two dozen assassinations in 50 years.
