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.
