What was the last film you watched?

Some things cultured but mostly films and telly stuff.

I watched Suicide Squad last night.

Now, I'm not well-versed in the various universes but the gist seems to be that this takes place in the universe where Batman and Superman live/lived, rather than where say Jessica Jones and Daredevil live.

But it all seemed a bit (bear with, plz) cartoony, IYSWIM. Most of the dialogue was awful, the set pieces were all wobbly cameras and rapid smash cuts. By the end of the film I was rather rooting for the baddies to win.

Will Smith was OK, Joel Kinnaman was OK, Margot Robbie was OK. The Joker got on my tits, the aussie was inexplicable by his presence, what was the croc man all about? That chap with the fire. He was alright.

Best was Viola Davies being an implacable government sociopath. But even she looked like she was phoning it in.

3/10, I liked the early bit with the enchantress going off and stealing secrets from the Iranians. That was good.

Coincidentally I also watched SS last night.

It was quite bad wasn't it? Far too many characters squeezed into a film. I reckon they filmed 3hrs worth but the studio made them leave an hour on the cutting room's digital floor. The result was disjointed and pointless.

It's a proper stinker, I remember it being panned at release too, do you think they hired the old Top gear team to write the jokes?

I'm going to see the new Hellboy in a minute. I'm a bit worried tbh.

I might have been if I'd thought of that.

As it stands I'm ambiently but increasingly worried.

Turntable wrote:Anyway, I watched a film on Netflix called Peppermint.
Cliched and rubbish sounding revenge thriller.
Bad drug gang kills woman's husband and child. Woman goes on the rampage. Same old.
Basically same storyline as John Wick but with a woman as the hardman

Actually really good though. If you leave your rolleyes at the door and watch it for what it is, it is excellent. Just a good fighty shooty revengy thriller with some surprisingly shocking and gory bits in it.
Everyone will like this.

At least 7/10

I watched this. There is so much wrong with your post.

Firstly it’s on Amazon Prime. I include that in case anyone wants to see it. They shouldn’t though.

Secondly it’s truly dire. One of the least believable characters I’ve ever seen. Not that she’s a she but because her entire change from from ditzy housewife to elite hitwoman in ten minutes is daft. It would be as realistic as Dean Gaffney in the part.

Absurd plot with irrelevant “social media” bits thrown in.

You should be ashamed of yourself TT. You won’t be because you never are but you should be.

I know nothing abut Aquaman, beyond that it was the imaginary film being made in the series Entourage. Are there good fishes and bad fishes battling for something?
