Hey there readers so “Suicide Squad” opened just over two weeks ago at the time of this writing and since I am aiming at doing a lot more movie reviews when they are still in theaters here we are. I usually hit these films with our stalwart media companion Skeleton Pete but he couldn’t join me this time around. With this film, I decided to keep it local and went to the Alpine Theater in my own Bay Ridge neighborhood which was a better idea since the price of my ticket and some snacks were about the same as the ticket only at the Manhattan theater. Let’s go to the movies.
For those who are in the unaware, “Suicide Squad” is the third film in the currently being built DC Extended Universe. This began with “Man Of Steel” and continued into “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” which was released earlier this year and since that last one was received with a very mixed and negative opinion, one could only cross their fingers about this one and to briefly recap its premise, here is what the Wiki had to say about the film’s bottom line.

We have arrived at the third installment of the DC Extended Universe and after the division that “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” left us with I can only hope that we shall be placed onto a more proper live action path with this one. Check out the poster, premise and cast and then I will return with a few more thoughts on the matter.
The Premise: “A secret government agency led by Amanda Waller recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency and saving the world from an unknown but powerful threat”. (thanks Wiki) Continue reading Opening: “Suicide Squad” (8/5/2016)→
Hey readers, so here is a good way to enjoy your Fourth of July weekend. You can check out the latest film depicting the adventures of the iconic jungle hero Tarzan. Below you’ll find the poster, premise and cast and then I’ll return at the close.
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa—where he was raised by the great apes—behind for an aristocratic life in the United Kingdom as John Clayton, 3rd Viscount Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane Porter (Margot Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo Free State to serve as a trade emissary of the House of Commons, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the corrupt Belgian Captain Léon Rom (Christoph Waltz). (thanks Wiki) Continue reading Opening: “The Legend Of Tarzan” (7/1/2016)→
As the memories of the recent “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” film slowly fade and our nerdy data banks open themselves up to the next installment from Warner Brothers Pictures that continues the build of the DC Extended Universe with “Suicide Squad”. The film features a number of the DC Universes deadliest villains who are teamed together to fight even nastier menaces. I’ve enjoyed the comic series over its many incarnations and only hope we get a better presentation than what we were left with in “BVS”. Earlier today WB release 2 sets of “11” character posters and I love sharing that stuff with you here as a part of our “On Screen” stuff. Check them out.
It was recently revealed that the upcoming Warner Brothers film “Suicide Squad” was undergoing some heavy re-shoots to add in a previously overlooked sense of humor and most feel that this was being done based on the very mixed opinion that the epic “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” had received. Apparently the one glib comment that an earlier trailer showed was the sole comedic line and after seeing “BvS” I can honestly say that I didn’t want another bleak film as this universe tries to assemble. So check out the latest trailer along with the premise for those who might need it and some of the cast. We can discuss more after that.
