    Also heavily dislike birds of prey and suicide squad albeit for entirely different reasons. Though I found suicide squad a bit more watchable at least for being so disastrous.

    I loved this new movie though, what a difference a director makes. And we are left with a fascinating study comparing this with it's predecessor and with Guardians of the Galaxy to which I thought this truly measured up. Also much like doom patrol as well. Maybe dc is finding a groove, snydercwrse fans be damned. But hey the Snyder's produced this! So they can do good I suppose. Such a delightful movie with great characters, cool powers and amazing creatures.

    Yup each to their own, but I despised Birds of Prey... it took the HQ character and did stupid things with the concept imo.

    this got it all right and ticked all the boxes for me. But if Iím honest these movies generally arenít my thing. I had the lowest expectations. Instead, as far as Iím concerned this is the most entertaining fun/action movie Iíve seen in a long time

    Started Doom Patrol on Prime recently. Most enjoyable DC content in recent memory.

    The Suicide Squad was pretty good. Definitely an improvement over the first. I cared about a few characters for sure, the movie is messy, the pacing was very off to me, but overall I had a good time.

    God help me, I went back and watched SS and BOP. I think my takeaway is that TSS is better, it's just not really as good as it could be. The whole James Gunn soundtrack thing has always annoyed me, like he was trying to do what Tarantino does but with less imagination, but I have to admit the music in TSS is a huge reason why it's a better movie. The other movies aren't good but there's some good scenes and ideas in there. But with both of them I couldn't help but notice a lot of scenes are scored with this generic sounding modern r&b type stuff that is just dogshit to my ears. At least Gunn was playing Pixies tracks.

    Also BOP had terrible casting for the other "birds" imo. Ultimately all three movies take Harley Quinn and make her into a cute zaney character when they should go a bit deeper and actually explore her insanity a bit instead of keeping it a surface level joke. TSS just so happens to have decent supporting/lead characters so it holds up much better. Maybe I'm just not a big fan of the whole suicide squad team up concept though. I think I'd rather see more individual solo type movies from DC that explored characters a bit more.

    Edit:
    Oh yeah, those mentioning Doom Patrol vibes with this film, I agree. That show isn't perfect but it's WTF level is off the charts and at least it takes time to go in depth with it's characters' mentality.

    I laughed far more at the "soft remakeboot" than the original. The smartwatch exchange alone.

    I've been zooming (no pun intended) through Flash and Legends. Flash is pretty rough, it might be time to 86 it. Legends is so out there again, it's awesome... and so fucked up. Sometimes you need that shut your brain off show.

    Flash must be nearing it's end, it's now reached the same number of seasons as Arrow (albeit their season 8 was truncated compared to the usual 20+ episode seasons)

    So unless everyone involved is just generally having a good time making the show and/or the network keeps renewing it, I'm not sure how much further it can......run.

    Although I guess I have to keep in mind that this is the network which kept that shitty Supernatural show going for what? 15 seasons? Christ!

    Supergirl is ending with it's 6th season.

    Black Lightning is done after 4 seasons.

    Batwoman is ending after season 3 i think?

    Legends of Tomorrow, that's bound to be concluding soon?

    That leaves Stargirl and Superman and Lois as the freshman CW shows. I'm not sure if there's anything else on the way?

    Gotta say it was still pretty bananas to see that SIX SHOW crossover with Crisis on Infinite Earths.

    Flash needs to end. It's just awful now. Everything between Barry & Iris has been painful to watch since S1, but now I just want them both to die in a fire. BRUTAL dialogue, and just nothing about them as a couple that makes you root for them.

    I have four episodes of Flash left, and I feel like there's no rush to finish it.

    There are slight teasers for Aquaman and Shazam 2 as well. DC is doing some great stuff right now.

    Just finished up watching The Suicide Squad... I liked the look of the effects, which is a change from a lot of other DC outings. Story seemed a bit hodgepodge but the acting was fine (and appropriately campy at points...). Don't see why Peacemaker needs a series though.

    If Gunn is to be believed: he doesn't. Gunn just had such a good time with the character that he pitched the idea, hence why he lives even after all that.

    It is good. Anyone else? Thoughts?

    Cena kills it here, and I love how they play the zany stuff straight faced. Really enjoyable.

    There are a lot of good bits to the show but there are a couple that keep it from being great. Interested in where they show goes now, especially after my son did his "I called it!" at the end and my wife and I were both "called what?"
