We finally have a movie review from one of our own Hometown Geeks, Liz!  Our Resident 3rd-Wave Feminist shares her thoughts on the latest DC-comic-bookturned movie below.

FYI, the theme song to MASH is “Suicide is Painless.” 😉

Pros
The joyful pixie stick that is Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn
Cons
This whole movie just left me feeling uncomfortable and covered in sand.
Summary
I would rather watch 2 ½ hours of Deadshot’s daughter doing math homework and making pancakes than watch Suicide Squad again.

(Pretty much SPOILER-FREE)

As you may or may not know, I’m pretty happy being a Marvel girl, with the occasional Wonder Woman and the regular Super Girl. Even so, I try to keep an open mind when it comes to comic-based movies and shows and I like to think I give everything a fair chance. That being said, Suicide Squad is not a film I have any desire to see again, which isn’t something I’m used to saying about comic-based movies.

 

Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is, in my opinion, one of the best things that’s happened to DC cinematic universe to date

I went in hoping for DC’s response to Deadpool, where there was violence and darkness and a story that tugged at your gut. Instead, I just spent 130 minutes feeling like I was eating sawdust with a backdrop of gunfire and the occasional joyful pixie stick of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn mixed in. On that note, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is, in my opinion, one of the best things that’s happened to DC cinematic universe to date (fingers crossed for Wonder Woman and Aquaman coming up).

Although we all knew this movie would be dark and gritty, this whole movie just left me feeling uncomfortable and covered in sand.

In conclusion, I would rather watch 2 ½ hours of Deadshot’s daughter doing math homework and making pancakes than watch Suicide Squad again.
