Are you stoked to see The Suicide Squad? We have you covered on 2 fronts! We have a recipe for folks who want to watch from home and a giveaway for those who want to attend a screening!
We love a good superhero movie. They are great, how do we put it, popcorn flicks. What goes better with a popcorn flick than popcorn?! We’ve come up with a new popcorn recipe inspired by The Suicide Squad (don’t forget the THE). With James Gunn at the helm and The Geeks in the kitchen, this team-up has to be good right? We also have a fantastic giveaway that you’re going to love, so read on!
I actually enjoyed 2016′s “SUICIDE SQUAD”. I enjoyed it when I first saw it in the theaters. I enjoyed it even more when I saw it for a second time. And I really enjoyed it when I bought the extended version on DVD. I enjoyed the theme of free will. I enjoyed how both Harley Quinn and the Joker were used as wild cards in the narrative in different ways. I loved the film’s soundtrack. And I especially loved that scene in a hotel bar.
Was “SUICIDE SQUAD” perfect? No. Nor do I regard it as the best film in the DCEU. It has its flaws. But I love the movie all the same. I realize that David Ayer didn’t care how Warner Brothers “butchered” his film. That is his perrogative. But I enjoyed it, all the same.
It feels like we’ve been here before. A C-list DC Comics villain has been brought to life by a major Hollywood talent—Idris Elba as Bloodsport in this case—only to be saddled in a seemingly generic scene with the character’s adolescent daughter. When we saw a variation of this cliché in the first Suicide Squad movie, it stood in for barebones character development; a familiar story beat which allowed Will Smith’s Deadshot to prove he really just wants to make his little girl proud. But that was then, and this is now. This is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad...
Do you want to read about Harley Quinn teaming up with Huntress, Black Canary, Batgirl, and Renee? Read this.
Okay ‘team up’ is a bit of a stretch. More like they just follow her around trying to minimize the destruction she is bringing onto Gotham with her visit.
So I thought I was going to hate this. I thought it would be too much movie-tie-in but still trying to have it in the comic universe (think the comic-universe Green Arrow where Felicity just shows up and is treated like Oliver’s One True Love because Arrowverse). But it’s not that. It the comic personalities of the characters with maybe a bit of the movie influence but honestly the bigger causer of OOC comments/traits is the sense of humor of the comic. Which honestly I can allow - this is Black Label and very much has a specific style of humor its going for. Of course it’s going to make the characters fit that humor even if it’s a bit OOC for them (think the Harley Quinn tv show).
Saying that, I don’t particularly love this brand of humor. It’s a bit to crass for me (which isn’t to say I don’t like crass humor just not this much of it). But that very much is a personal preference thing.
There’s some small things I wish they had of done more with - showed the Birds as a team, had Barbara play the Oracle role they set up her to be able to do, and so on. But it’s a 4 issue story that did focus on Harley - I can’t really complain that they didn’t manage to cram all that into it as well.
Should you read it? If you like a more crude humor and want to read a fun short story then yes. It’s a fun short about Harley causing chaos in Gotham. If crude humor isn’t for you give it a miss.
Harley Quinn: Did you know there's a temple in Calcutta where they used to sacrifice a child every day? That's everyday a dead baby, Bats. Everyday! Hey, you wanna know what today is? It's dead baby day, oh no wait, that's everyday because every day is a dead baby day. Yay!
Just watched The Suicide Squad in cinema. Do I get more and more bisexual everytime I watch a superhero movie or what ? Because, shit guys, Margot Robbie and Joel Kinnaman definitely make me feel the need to make the Devi's Tango with them.
