The Suicide Squad: One Wild RIde

When I first heard the cast list I was like Polka-Dot Man? Ratcatcher? Oh dear. They ended the movie as my two favorites (outside of Harley of course but I’ll get to her). I think that might have been the nicest part after a run of mediocre films.

It wound up being The Suicide Squad that I was never once bored and looking at the clock and it did it by actually making me care about the characters (love them or hate them) I actually teared up in this movie damn it.

The Tomorrow War is Pure Summer Movie Fun

There’s already a lot of back and forth about The Tomorrow War in reviews and I don’t like Pratt that much so I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this. It’s not the greatest movie by far. But actually as a summer sci-fi/action film The Tomorrow War is pure summer movie fun!

And I’m sorry but I just don’t know if it’s fair to knock a movie because “the time-travel science doesn’t hold up” as I saw one reviewer say.

Directed by: Patrick Hughes

Grade: C+

Ryan Reynolds plays a top protection agent whose assigned to get an infamous hitman (played by Jackson) to the trial of a brutal dictator in one piece. Naturally said dictator (Gary Oldman) still has some serious pull. It’s like the whole military under this guy is standing in their way and if they don’t make it alive, or even in time, he walks.

Wonder Woman

Directed by: Patty Jenkins

Starring: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, etc.

Grade: A

Wonder Woman has been in my top three most anticipated movies of the year probably since the comic-con trailer dropped last summer. But as much as I loved her in Batman v. Superman I had been burned before with those Suicide Squad trailers. However my anticipation only went up after the reviews started coming in early this week.

Did they do her justice?
