    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It's a proper laugh riot, with some really funny bits and no fear to be in your face goofy, even for the most serious characters.

    Character investment was all really well done, avery character that we get to actually spend time with we do get very invested in. And all the decisions they make become all the more engaging, whether those decisions be for better or worse. Even the cannon fodder characters still have enough bits and pieces to be…

    Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

    ½

    A wildly unnecessary sequel that really shows it's weaknesses and pales to an original that was still only okay. Watchable, and often times very funny, but shows such a lack of respect for it's audience it's a shame.

    The film is remarkably dumbed down, there's an abhorrent number of scenes where characters are unnecessarily giving a road map of the scene that is about to play out, or describing in toddler level detail what is happening. There's effectively no confidence…

    What an absolute goddamn mess. Birds of Prey is the roadkill that vultures feed on, except it was never even appetizing when it was breathing to justify even that attention.

    This thing is a near incomprehensible smattering of over the top stylistic additions that are totally incongruent with eachother. There's slow-mo, screen draw ons, color flashes, non-sequential editing, all maligned with pop music and god knows how many more filmmaking quirks that were so one note that I can't list…

    1917

    ★★★★★

    Immersive beyond compare, tense, triumphant, and touching 1917 is the one to beat when it comes to masterclass filmmaking.

    The one take nature is a grand selling point and fantastic plot device but don't let those accolades make you think this film is a 1 trick pony. The film is also shot beautifully, the flare lit night chase scene is a cinematic set piece for the ages.

    I mentioned that it's unfair that anything has to compete with the Lighthouse…
