My only wish is that TBS becomes the "Roadhouse" channel... then the circle will be complete

they'll try to make them relatable so I bet we'll get to see a lot of them fighting inner-demons.

Which would actually make for a much more exciting boss battle than versus Bookstore Hipster Lex jr. Lolololol

First reviews of Suicide Squad are coming out, and they're not pretty...

Saw it tonight. I like it. Will Smith was very good. Margo Robbie is hot. It's a decent movie.

Well, I saw it tonight.

I avoided reading any reviews, but I did have a few friends tell me they had read both good and bad reviews (mostly bad)

And yeah, the film pretty much is not bad, but not great either.

I think this could've worked better as 2 separate films. There really was a lot going on. If they'd made a film called Harley loves Joker and just did the whole Harley origin and have Batman in it, I think it would've been great. I think Harley is great in this, I enjoyed some of the Leto Joker stuff but there wasn't enough of him in it.

Surprisingly Will Smith was good in this as Deadshot. That could've been a good story just with him, Flagg and Enchantress.

My problem with the rest of the Squad was that they just weren't as memorable. They were unable to establish them all in the same way as Watchmen did.

This was miles better than Batman V Superman.

Promotional ploys for this movie are epic...




Gets me amped for the possibility of a porn spoof.

I haven't seen it yet, but redlettermedia review tore it apart. Harley magically having a cellphone to call Joker with, Joker having pretty much nothing to do with the story, the team is created to solve a problem that is created by making the team in the first place, and the first half of the movie is awful. Reeks of WB exec meddling.

Yeah, but RLM was wrong about the phone. Look up their recent update video about it where they sarcastically admit that they overlooked the fact that the guard gave it to her.

There are 2 things that kept this movie from being great and those 2 things are the editing and the final bad guy. Everything else is pretty great.







SPOILER BELOW...








Enchantress should not have been the main bad guy, she should've turned on her brother.

I pretty much agree with Die and $nave. It's a good, fun movie, but not great.

It was Smoking Aces with DC characters, and I loved it. It wasn't a game-changer, but the hyperbolic hatred it's receiving is unwarranted.

I want a Captain Boomerang movie, yesterday.
