Tweaking Birds of Prey: Spoilers!

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

I really enjoyed it Birds of Prey when it came out last month. Still do. Bought it immediately when it was available and watched everything and honestly that only reinforced my biggest issue with the movie.

Besides Harley it needed stronger characters.

It’s Time for Poison Ivy…

Poison Ivy in the Harley Quinn show

The DC Cinematic Universe is sleeping on a lot but a big one I think is they haven’t yet used the character of Doctor Pamela Isley, better known as Poison Ivy, since Uma Thurman played her in that Batman we should all forget way back in the 90s.

I think that is crazy because if there’s anyone screaming for a Big Screen adaptation its her.

The Harley Quinn movie trailer is here (also known as Birds of Prey) and while it looks fun I’m also once again glad it’s not Gotham City Sirens.

In fact I’m not sure I want to see Ivy while Margot Robbie is calling the shots and I say that as a huge fan of Harley Quinn.

Justice League: Spoilers!

Justice League

Justice League

Directed By: Zack Snyder

Grade: B

Expectations were somewhere in the middle considering all the behind the scenes stuff that went on with this movie. When I couldn’t see it this weekend I started hearing it had bombed because it made under a hundred million. Really? I mean the movie itself had some problems (some big) and it’s not something I’ll see again in theaters but I enjoyed it and I’m still hopeful for the DCEU.
