Suicide Squad Survives. Critics Don't!

You would think it is humiliating to harangue a film then see it soar at the box office. It seems that many film critics just don't understand or appreciate films with mass appeal. More on that later

Why do so many of you take criticism so damn personally when you have NOTHING to do with a film?

 

If you like it great, like it.  Why do you need people in the media or press to agree with you?  So many claim to not care about critics, then turn around and talk about them incessantly.  I'll never get this.

folks get butt hurt over the smallest things

 

i do not agree with you.. SO YOU''RE WRONG.. YOU'RE AN IDIOT. DUMB or KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE TOPIC AT HAND... It is funny to me at times, so I choose to ignore most of the "Know it all folk".

 

I am going to see it still and could careless what others opinions on it are. If i like it, i like it and if not, oh well

DC fans have some sort of complex when it comes to these movies. They'll deal with horrible edits of the movies put out solely to make the viewer purchase the extended cut on Blu-ray. When Jared Leto's pissed at the studio, that says something. If he's not defending them and he's getting a paycheck from them, why the hell are you guys so adamantly defending them? Because you're mindless fans? All his dedication towards the role means nothing if I only get to see a 1/5 of it. It reminds me of when TDR came out and every review that didn't worship it as work of art was attacked by DC fanboys. Marvel fanboys defend both Thor movies despite them being mediocre and they get rightfully blasted for that. AoU: good film, spent too much time trying to set other films up. 

 

Suicide Squad, in my opinion, was a film with many great scenes, many poor scenes, and some of the worst editing I've seen. Jared and Margot were phenomenal and someone actually needs to be fired at WB for removing so many of their scenes. I shouldn't have to pay more money for a finished movie. Will and Viola were good. I thought Cara did fine. It's far better than whatever it is on RT and Fant4stic but WB has some of you under an Enchantress spell. I'd happily see a Suicide Squad 2 if they decide not to edit most of the movie out but until that happens, I'm not paying money for unfinished projects.

Also, the soundtrack was great. The choice of song for when Joker dived after Harley was phenomenal.

lol fido.

 

 

I only think there's such a strong splurge of support due to the unnecessary level of hate the DC movies have gotten. The strongest downfall for DC has def. been the edits of the film and how choppy and incoherent some pieces may be. They aren't D level or f level movies.

False. The editor of BvS won an Academy Award for Best Editing by the way. There is a Doctor on iTunes whose podcast has been disproving all the criticisms against the DCEU Films for the past 3 years.

It's false that SS was poorly edited because the editor won an Oscar 26 years ago for a different film???

How can you "disprove criticism".  Please.  An opinion is just that.  Whether people like it or not, shouldn't affect your enjoyment of something.  It's sad that it has such an effect this flipping off thing happens, or posting of how much money its made is thrown out there (especially by fans who have no stake in it).

By the way, just because someone won an award for editing (or anything really) one movie doesn't mean everything they do after is of the same quality.  That point is completely moot.

Suicide Squad Wins 3rd Weekend In A Row At Box Office

 

 

suicide-squad-harley-quinn-elevator-scen

David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad is looking to steal another #1 spot at the box office this weekend. That would put the Warner Bros./DC Comics film in elite competition in 2016 since only DeadpoolZootopiaThe Jungle Book, and Finding Dory have managed to hold off newcomers for the top spot three weekends in a row. In other words, it’s a feat that neither Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or Captain America: Civil War could manage this year. ''

#SuicideSquad brings in $20.7M. 3rd straight weekend on top. Domestic total at $262M. How do you like them apples ?

I saw it last night and I enjoyed it. Deadshot, Harley and Mr. J are standouts obviously. Waller and Flag were dope despite causing their own problem. The main "villains" were weak and some scenes had unnecessary music. Overall though, I definitely had fun with it.

I don't get all the fuss about this. It was mildly entertaining. Just one of those where you see it once and move on and probably never give it a second look.
