We’re not in agreement on Suicide Squad around here, and that’s OK. That’s life. But rarely has Screen Junkies so perfectly encapsulated what I was thinking, so here you go.
The DCEU’s third installment has burst upon the scene in unusual circumstances: Suicide Squad has been tasked with reinvigorating a franchise that has been mostly lambasted with negative reviews from critics and a majority thumbs up from audiences (not to mention this) while falling short of Warner Bros’ financial expectations. Like its predecessors, this movie has proved divisive and today, I’m here to tell everyone that they’re both right.
How many reasons can you think of to go see Suicide Squad? Methinks one.
It’s another trailer with another creepy cover of an old song. This has quickly become the most overused technique in movie marketing history, so will the Suicide Squad movie be as generic as its commercial? Here’s my take (after the jump).
I should have waited to blow my proverbial load until I saw a photo of Jared Leto as the Joker. There’s doing something new, and then there’s this.
