    How good is it? Ryan Reynolds is hilarious!

    My boy is begging me to take him but I'm guessing I would be frowned upon as it's a 15 ain't it? Or did the drop it to a 12A?

    It's 18+ over here, aside from the odd sex scene there's not much too it. The violence is pretty normal and the swearing isn't anything you wouldn't hear coming from a teen around his mouth anyway. I say be a sick dad and take him.

    Well I finally watched Whiplash a couple of weeks ago. I would have it in my 5 "most disappointing movies after the hype" of all time.

    No affinity for the characters and it was just well, kind of stupid. Have I missed the point?

    I just can't get into Superman, he's always been that OP superhero. So no will not be attending.

    They look like they're fucked up Suicide Squad as well but I'll give that ago.

    Hulk is OP as well, so is Scarlett Witch with the Marvel movies.

    Superman is pretty grounded in the movie, WW is epic, and Batman is sweet.

    Suicide squad looks really good, cant wait to watch it. Will be there on opening night. Margot Robbie seems perfect for Harley Quinn.

    Yeah I'm not a fan of Hulk either, he's alright in Avengers but outside of that pretty average.

    Scarlett Witch will only get more OP as the story goes as she learns how strong she is.

    Margot Robbie is insanely hot but I don't think she's looking very good as Harley (I mean looks wise, yes of course) but Harley needs to be a vulnerable character at certain times, she's not a hand to hand tough guy. Plus her voice doesn't lend itself well to the character, although I can understand as Harley is normally very high pitched and that could annoy the fuck out of people. I don't have faith purely because I grew up with the comics and animated movies and stuff so I'm very protective in an extremely silly way because I've done nothing to contribute to them.

    Anyone else over the 'Comic Book' movie phase ?

    Don't get me wrong, I used to look forward to my weekly visits to the newsagent to pick up the latest Judge Dredd back in the day - so I get the genre - but I'm sick to bloody death of all these comic book character [half of which I've never heard of] movies filling the screenspace.

    It'd be refreshing to see some new original content once in a while.

    P.S. [he says just before buying tickets to 'Warcraft' Embarassed ]

    I watched Finding Dory.
    Went to the drive in's
    Laid the seats back in the 4X
    Filled it with doonas and pillows
    Backed it up
    2 friends said take tissues
    Wife, son & I must be heartless pricks
    People are saying better than Finding Nemo, I don't see it.
    Think it's the perspective of time

    I took the Milch Calf to see Finding Dory yesterday.

    I don't think it was as good as the Finding Nemo. Not a tissue movie (It's no Inside Out if we're comparing it to recent Pizar movies)

    Did stick through the credits for the post credit scene - and noticed that SI worked on the movie though (or his name twin at least)

    Thoughts on Suicide Squad?

    Major Spoilers below.
    Spoiler:

    Seriously these spoilers will ruin the movie, watch the movie first to formulate your own opinion.

    - Firstly a massive up, but I loved the entire soundtrack of the movie.

    - I like Adam Beach (Slipknot) so having him die off without doing much is a shame, also the fact that it was so predictable from the moment his character is introduced. (Seriously give him a bit of a backstory or foreshadow it a little less.)

    - Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Jay Hernandez (Diablo), and Will Smith (Deadshot) were really solid throughout the movie. They made it for me.

    - Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), I wanted to like her and at points I really did. However I feel they overdid it. I get that Harley overall is over the top, but sometimes it was just too much. With that said she was another bright spot throughout the movie.

    - Jared Leto (The Joker), perhaps it was just too edgy for me but I didn't enjoy it. I don't think it is Leto's fault either. Just snippets of what could have been essentially. Would love to see him in a main role.

    - Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), what purpose did he serve throughout the movie? I would have loved to see more, or well anything from him. Instead you get a scene of him throwing a boomerang at Karen Fukuhara (Katana), him throwing a boomerang to get a view of Enchantress, and him being punched by her brother. Oh and seeing him hold a pink unicorn toy several times. (Which unless I fell asleep/blacked out was never explained.)

    - Karen Fukuhara (Katana), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), suffer from the above. Although Fukuhara at least had a somewhat interesting backstory.

    - The entire last scene. Now this is a small nitpick. However why have slow motion of Harley throwing the gun, or of Killer Croc throwing the bomb. Just slow it down as Deadshot is about to take the shot.

    - Overall. It was alright, not the best, not beating Marvel, not beating Superman v Batman. It was alright. An enjoyable, predictable at times, but still a decent movie.

    I liked it enough. Better then anything the DC Universe has put out so far. S and SvB were both much, much worse then SS.

    spoiler:
    I liked the take on the Joker - I thought it was pretty cool. But he didnt have an adversary, he was just kinda around beating up on small time thugs. If he had a batman/com gordon to go up against, it would have been brilliant.

    I think all the performances were very good to great. What was written was well directed - just what was written wasnt crash hot. Should have spent more on script rewrites and less on music licensing. Ripcord's scene was a joke, didnt need to be there at all and you could see what was happening a mile off.

    And it felt like it was dulled down in editing a fair bit in to avoid an MA rating - which a movie like that kinda needs.
