Suicide Squad
Suicide Squad (2016)
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Suicide Squad is based on a Comic book that features some of DC Comics worst villains pressed into service for the US Government. The comics are witty, usually well written, and feature characters that we get to know and enjoy before something bad happens to them. The themes in the comic are best suited to a Rated R movie. That's the start of problems for Suicide Squad.

The movie took comic's premise and went about giving us a dull, plodding adaptation that is a mish mash of existing DC cartoon, comic, TV, and movie material. If you're a fan of the Suicide Squad comics you will be let down. The bright spots in the movie are the characters of Amanda Waller played by Viola Davis, and El Diablo played by Jay Hernandez. Beyond that Harley Quinn becomes annoying, The Joker has insanity and no brilliance, Rick Flagg sounds like a redneck hick, Killer Croc growls and scowls, and Deadshot is Will Smith sounding and acting like Will Smith does in every action movie. He was poorly cast as he portrays the character as close to 180 degrees out from the comic. If you liked Marvel Comics Civil War adaptation then you'll be disappointed by Suicide Squad. The main antagonists are forgettable, the plot is weak, the main characters should have been lesser known DC villains played by lesser known actors, and the film is a solid C+ effort given the budget and actors involved.

All Quiet on the Western Front

I was forced to watch this movie for a Social Studies class in elmentary school. I expected to be bored to tears by this black and white movie.

I was wrong. This movie is so powerful that all of the childern in my class including myself sat there with our mouths open at the end. To this day this classic movie has stayed in my consciousness for the message of how horrible war is.

It is a must see movie for people interested in seeing good movies.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

When I go to see a horror movie my expectations are set low. Hence, I can enjoy Freddie vs Jason no matter how bad it really is. It's a horror movie!

When I go to see an action flick my expectations are a little higher but all that I ask for is a simple plot and easy to follow action.

Transformers ROTF fell well below my expectations. I owned the toys, watched the animated series, and read the Marvel Comics. All that I asked was a fairly faithful adaptation of the characters, a plot that made sense, and some decent acting and action scenes.

What I got was the another wrong iteration of Devastator, a Megatron that was a wuss, plot holes or inconsistencies that were too huge to ignore, humor that is beneath most 18 year olds, and acting with no heart or conviction.

If you like testicles, humping, pot brownies, men in undies, moms listening to their kids screwing, and incoherent action scenes featuring unnamed robots then you deserve this horrible and insulting movie.

Is there gratuitous product placement? Yes. Do the humans inexplicably leave the protection of the Autobots and run toward the Decepticons? Yes. Does a deli worker tell the Commanding Officer of a US Navy ship to fire his secret weapon at one of the great Pyramids? Yes. Does any of this make sense? NO!!!!!!

If a 3rd installment comes our way I will watch it on BluRay and keep the stop button well in hand. Damn you Michael Bay!!!
