The Best Movie Ever In Years


Just plugging back in long enough to give you my reaction to Suicide Squad.

It’s not the best movie I ever saw. Star Wars is still the champ. But I am older and far more jaded than I was back in 1977.

Suicide Squad is the best theater experience I have had since at least LOTR Return of the King. Maybe longer.

I was never bored. There weren’t any overly-long fight scenes or car chases. The special effects/CGI stuff was kept to a minimum. The movie actually had a plot. Midway thru the movie I had to take a pee break. I held it as long as I could and hurried back because I didn’t want to miss anything.

Margot Robbie deserves at least a best actress nomination. She stole every scene she was in. Harley Quinn is one of the most iconic movie characters since Indiana Jones. Expect to see a lot more of both Margot and Harley in the future.

Jared Leto was the best Joker ever, even better than Heath Ledger. Viola Davis deserves recognition too. As far as comic book superhero movies go, Suicide Squad is one of the best.

YMMV. This is an open thread.

    40 years ago one of my front teeth was replaced by a crown. They told me it was good for 20 years. It is barely hanging in there. If I bite into anything it’s a goner. My dentist doesn’t get back from vacation until the 22nd. He already told me I’m looking at a partial plate.

    Unplugging again.

        The whole thing is loose. There is nothing left of the root.

        I’m not complaining. But I may have a hole in my smile for a few weeks.

          The original tooth was broke in half when I was 8 and playing little league. I was running the bases and the 3rd baseman missed the catch and the ball and it hit me in the mouth. When I was 17 I got the crown.

          it’s not the only bad tooth I have.

          • I had a guy cat call at me on the street when I was 18. When I spurned his advance, he yelled a slur at me and my friend. My friend threw her full beer at him, which hit him in the back of his head. He turned full-heel around and punched me in the jaw, cracking my three bottom front teeth. I got a root canal and a crown to cover all three. But boy, did it hurt like hell while I waited for the dentist to get that crown made.

            He was wearing a wife beater, and I put out my cigarette square in the middle of his exposed chest, twisting as I went. We both have battle scares from that one. At least mine got covered.

            Somehow I have managed to avoid getting punched in the mouth for over 40 years. My eyes haven’t been so lucky.

          If that happens you should dig out a childhood photo of yourself with the same tooth gap.

        • Somebody says:

          If it is only one tooth why not get an implant?

    The gymnastics uniform has more white tonight. I like the red blue better.

    Myiq, thank you for sending all these tweets to Hillary!

    As I said the other day, David Martosko is one of the very few fair journalists left. Just take a look at his timeline today. He is standing up to all of those idiots saying Trump called for assassination of Hillary. He was there, as he is at most all of Trump’s events.

    Ha ha! Did we discuss those 50 Bushie neo-cons writing a letter condemning Trump/supporting Hillary? Trump slaps them down. These people are so far inside their beltway bubble they don’t even realize how much the American people have rejected their shit:

    “The names on this letter are the ones the American people should look to for answers on why the world is a mess, and we thank them for coming forward so everyone in the country knows who deserves the blame for making the world such a dangerous place. They are nothing more than the failed Washington elite looking to hold onto their power, and it’s time they are held accountable for their actions.

    These insiders – along with Hillary Clinton – are the owners of the disastrous decisions to invade Iraq, allow Americans to die in Benghazi, and they are the ones who allowed the rise of ISIS. Yet despite these failures, they think they are entitled to use their favor trading to land taxpayer-funded government contracts and speaking fees. It’s time we put our foot down and declare that their gravy train is over: no longer will Crooked Hillary Clinton and the other disasters in Washington get rich at our expense.

    Instead, I offer a better vision for our country and our foreign policy – one that is not run by a ruling family dynasty. It’s an America first vision that stands up to foreign dictators instead of taking money from them, seeks peace over war, rebuilds our military, and makes other countries pay their fair share for their protection. Together, we will break up the rigged system in Washington, make America safe again, and we will Make America Great Again.”

    I have to say, i am never disappointed in jared leto. He’s a great actor. I didn’t think much of him in my so called life, but i noticed him finally as nick cages drug addict bro in lord of war. He was amazing just in that small part. Then f course dallas buyers club. Anyway, i really appreciate his acting skills.

    Via Hot Air, Matthew Sheffield writes of the anger and (correct) feelings of betrayal rising among the base.

    The Establishment’s plan is very simple. They’ve pretty much announced it. Bret Stephens, for example, does not hide the fact that his plan is to help Hillary into the presidency with a “blow out” against Trump. Then, he figures, the rebellious Untermenschen of the Lumpenproletariat will come grovelling to the Establishment for its super-successful and popular policy mix of unchastened neocon foreign adventurism, favors for corporate cronies, and official, explicit Open Borders policy.

    Here’s Stephens admitting The Plan, which is hardly necessary anyway, as it was always pretty obvious:

    This is the reason I’ve consistently argued that the only hope for a conservative restoration is a blowout Hillary Clinton victory, held in check by a Republican majority in Congress. If Mr. Trump loses the election narrowly, the stab-in-the-back thesis will have a patina of credibility that he might have won had it not been for the opposition of people like me. But a McGovern-style defeat makes that argument impossible to sustain except among the most cretinous. We can count on Mr. Hannity for that.
    And we can count on Mr. Stephens for that as well.

    These guys, who fancy themselves smart, seem to miss the point that the way to “teach a lesson” to Trump supporters is to just sort of stay out of the election, and let Trump fail on his own. Then they would have the makings of a “See, I told you so” argument.

    But they’re too stupid and emotional for that — no, they have to insert themselves directly into this, agitate for a Hillary win, and then admit they’re actually agitating for a big Hillary win because the bigger the win, the bigger the repudiation.

    The smart play was to keep their fingerprints off Trump’s loss so they couldn’t be blamed. But they’re egotistical, and highly emotional, and can’t help themselves from signing the defeat in blood-red fingerpaint: “WE DID THIS.”

    But they also want to claim, post-November, “We had nothing to do with this.”

    Um, except for the part where you actively agitated for Hillary Clinton, and even put up a pawn of a candidate to try to throw a crucial state to Hillary Clinton.

    One question:

    You guys, having admitted you shivved the rest of the party in the back in order to scramble into a leadership position after the electoral debacle you admit you engineered —

    why the fuck wouldn’t the rest of us return the favor?

    I will never again support the WSJ/Establishment/Rick Wilson/Brent Stephens wing of the GOP. Ever.

    Why the hell would I help you assholes into the power positions you crave after you’ve admitted to tanking an election to “teach a lesson” to the rest of us?

    You actually conspire with the enemy — the Democrat Party, the socialists — to give them the Supreme Court (all liberal justices older than 50 will retire under Hillary so she can pack the court with 40 year old liberals, and the conservatives except for Roberts and Alito are old) just to increase your own position vis-a-vis the base, and you’re even brazen and stupid enough to admit this, and you think, what?

    We line up to reward you for your betrayal?

    Are you fucking insane?

    Does this mean “Suicide Squad” can’t be used for the eventual documentary about #NeverTrump?

  18. Kathy says:

    I heard the Trump clip on tv about Hillary and the second amendment and it never ocurred to me he was talking about violence..then, out of nowhere Jake Tapper says he was insinuating violence against her. Stunning the lengths the media goes to to slam Trump. This one was totally unreal. Again, vote the opposite of whoever the media is pimping.
