Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

They’re just lazy and yet another reason why they will never have the quality that marvel does. I won’t pay for a Bat Fleck  movie… really if Marvel has movies… and your tv shows are doing well, why not just stick to the tv shows for the DC universe?

Boomerang_SuicideSquadBoomerang I only know from I think it was one episode of Arrow (or was he in The Flash?)  tv show,  but being as Jai Courtney is Boomerang and my current fave Aussie I’m happy he gets to be in one of these movies, (especially being as I didn’t get my Thor on with Civil War)  though I’m not a fan of those chops on his face. 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)

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.

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.

REVIEW: “Suicide Squad” is Exactly What DC’s Film Franchise Needs

Sound Track review  * exclusive listen to a track from the arkham asylum scene

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!!!

Big Brother

Liz from Florida sounds like Lea Remini which is from Queens or brookly so how the hell does someone from Fl. Get that accent?

Jason a cashier/stockboy from mass  and unlike Frankie Grande and a few previous gay contestants.. I’m not liking him so far although he did give me a laugh walking into what I call the ‘velvet’ room with the purple and bright ‘pinks’ saying OHMYLANTA

Vanessa is a pro poker player  from vegas and possibly Bi  (and while they house guests are being said to be superficial which I can see… I think this one needs to take some of that 4 million in poker winnings and get herself at least a new nose, if not complete face… I ran screaming from the room when I saw her.

John from Scranton Pennsylvania is one rockin dentist and definitely does not look like one! (i hate dentists, but if he were around here and I could go I’d give him a try)  and he may be the youngest one

Becky is from Denver Colorado and loves nature

Steve from Governor (or something like that)  NY  Loves music  and engineering

a couple from a season of the amazing race is on this year (gods I hope they didn’t send back the red nightmare) Apparently Big Brother guests and spectators are going to be punished for ‘Brachel’ being on that show. I definitely don’t like Jackie and that Jeff dude who looks like he should be a rodeo clown.

And the co- HOH of the year for the first week is Tiny lil  Jason.

Under the Dome  s.3

What did the narration from the past seasons say 3 months or 3 years?  Ewww ectoplasm but there’s no ghosts …yet or are there? Now that was an impressive ‘fireworks’ display to start the season but what will the consequences be. Oh Yummy  Mike Vogel in Tac gear… Ug there’s time travel or flash backs or maybe an alternate universe  not sure what we have here. Maybe its the alternate universe being as the ectoplasm is there. Whatever the case.. this show has hurt my head. y bet is parallel/alternate universe/dimension. It took a few yers but I now Officially dub this the ‘the new Lost’
