    A bit cheesy in some sections but Jonathan Majors delivers a powerful lead performance.  Majors is one of my favourite new actors and I wish he had a better script to work with here.  Glen Powell could have been type cast so soon after playing a pilot in that other plane movie but he does a great job playing the character of Tom differently.  The action scenes were well done and the ending made me tear up. Just wish some of the middle parts and some lines in the script were better. 👍

    Bit of a mess.  Felt the runtime but I enjoyed it.  The loss of Chadwick Boseman obviously made for some emotional scenes.  👍

    A neo noir set in Japan?  Of course I loved it.  I was a big fan of Robert Mitchum as a kid and this movie reminded me of how cool and great an actor he is. Ken Takura is also very good in his supporting role playing a character that becomes more complicated as the movie progresses.  I absolutely loved this and I’m glad I blind bought it for my collection.  👍👍

    Some stuff to like here but it always seemed just shy of greatness.  I usually love time loop movies but this took some time to get my attention fully.  It’s Tim Burton so it of course looks amazing but it’s not one of his best. 👍

    August Challenge with Mitch

    Prompt: Go see a movie in theaters.

    Pure movie theater cinematic escapism! I'll leave the nitpicking for the cynics. I had a hell of a time. I laughed my ass off. The action was nonstop. James Gunn is in top form and The Suicide Squad is on par with the original Guardians of the Galaxy. I'll be rewatching The Suicide Squad for years and years to come. A smile was on my face from the first few seconds and will be returning everytime I think about this movie. Go see it in theaters everyone!

    Don’t know why I gave this 3.5.  I really enjoyed this rewatch!  I doesn’t match the perfection of the original but it comes damn close.  Some of the best modern special effects sequences I’ve ever seen.  Can’t wait for Vol 3! 👍👍
