It's completely pointless... whch is exactly the point. Hundreds of workers showing up 50 minutes before their shift is over.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

We're on strike until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday->Wednesday). Which means I will clock in at midnight and work until my shift is over... 50 minutes later.

Hahaha, awesome.

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 02:29 AM)

How dare you! You KNOW Eevee is the obvious choice!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 December 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Finished mine a few days ago, and just bought myself (I really shouldn't have, but did anyway.) let's go pikachu with the pokeball.

(which would lead to a bunch of bad jokes about him selling a line of cashews, almonds, and pecans)

That would make sense per the precedent of Kamen Rider OOO ("Kamen Raidā Ōzu").

Wouldn't it be pronounced "Kamen Rider D's"?

Didn't even realize there were toys.

I wonder if DC will do Nick Fury and change comic Deadshot to African American? They rebooted again anyhow.

The whole "will smith is the face of Suicide Squad"'is becoming more and more true. Looking at the toys he is everywhere...more than Joker. Even has a 12" figure I saw at Target next to the Deadshot, Harley Quinn and Batman 6" figures. Can see who DC is pushing.

 

Well, GOOD! Deadshot SHOULD be the lead face of the Suicide Squad!

I think it's been vastly underestimated how much the moviegoing public has missed the smartass action movie star version of Will Smith. He does a lot of things well, but there's nothing he's better at than that.

 

Thing about that is... 

 

Name the last good movie Will Smith was actually in. 

 

 

His last 4 major projects before this were "Winter's Tale," "After Earth," "Men In Black 3," and "Seven Pounds." they all SUCK.

This is sort of my point. Other than MIB 3, which everyone was sleepwalking through, those movies were all pretty dour affairs. And you didn't even mention Concussion, his terrible Oscar bait movie from last year!

 

People were delighted to see him doing things like shooting monsters and yelling "TRIANGLE, BITCH!" again.

Ditto.  Not as good or fresh as the first, of course, but Josh Brolin's Tommy Lee Jones impression was impressive, and the underlying heart of the movie was ooey-gooey sappy cheesy goodness.  Also the movie's Neuralizer gags were some of the most gut-bustingly funny ones of the entire series.

 

I didn't mind Seven Pounds either.  No, it wasn't a great movie, and really heavy-handed in its emotional manipulation, but the story was pretty interesting and different to say the least.

MiB3 wasn't great, but just about everyone agrees that its much better film and sequel then 2 was. I don't think they'll ever make one as great at the original, but MiB3 I can actually rewatch and enjoy, compare to cringing for most everything in 2. After 2 I think most everyone was done with the Franchise and 3 feels like "Hey, it can still be good" as I know that if there was a 4th if its at least as enjoyable as 3 I won't mind seeing other sequels.

Brolin as young Tommy Lee was awesome! He got virtually all the K inflections down pat. Bravo to him!

Don't really want Will Smith as the face of Suicide Squad but, well, is it successful enough that they can afford him for a sequel? Without turning it into a Harley Joker romance movie?

It's having a pretty great first week at the box office. At least $300 million domestic is looking like a sure thing, and probably an ever bigger number internationally. I'd say you can put money on a sequel 2019-ish.

In the past there's literally only 1 black character, so OF COURSE he turns out to be Will Smith's father. It was screamingly obvious, and oh so insultingly stupid at the same time. Horrid film.

From the trailers I'd hoped for an entertaining jive-show and that's more or less what I got. Truth be told it actually exceeded my low expectations, except for Jared Leto whose interpretation of The Joker was pretty bad. Not quite Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor embarrassingly godawful, but not great (although I did love when he christened Harley at the chemical plant.) Admittedly when I first saw the pictures my instinctual response was "NO!" but I went in with an open mind and my gut reaction was absolutely right. *shrugs*

 

As for the actual squad I liked the characters and their interactions, I think the team worked great together and had chemistry. Will Smith as Will Smith as it was described in an earlier post is very appropriate, but oh well, there's a reason the guy's a star. I grew up on the Sorkin Harley Quinn so this didn't feel like Harley Quinn to me and the pronunciation of puddin' bugged me, but in general I thought Margot Robbie was entertaining and kind of awesome. Boomerang was funny but I feel robbed because I was expecting some sort of payoff with the pink unicorn. Katana was pointless but I'm certainly not going to complain about a hot sword-wielding Japanese woman randomly showing up in movies I watch. Diablo was interesting although I think they bungled the execution of his backstory. Croc was better than I thought he'd be.

 

The villains were lame, the action wasn't very exciting against faceless dull toons, the structure of the story was a mess.

 

I feel like it had all the ingredients to be so much better and with all its faults I could easily come away hating it, yet I was able to have fun and enjoyed it more than I thought I would going in. Maybe that's because the last DC film I saw was Batman vs  Superman.


The most wonderful time of the year.

Saw it last night. Holy medicority Batman!

Cons:
Joker. I think he could have delivered a good joker if they weren't trying so hard to make him a "take" on the joker, and just made him the joker. I also didn't care for the anti heroing of him, going to such lengths to save hq.

Hq. Obnoxious. After a couple of the early trailers I saw her dialogue described as "pulled entirley from hot topic t shirts" which is really not far off in the final product. I was also dumb that the character with no powers or special skills seemed to get more kills than any of the others. She consistantly killed the monster things with one shot, while deadshot didn't? Her bat was just as effective as a soul stealing katana? I'm not sure of ss oragin in the comics, but in the movie as an anti meta human team what would she even bring to the table?

Croc. wierd racial stuff, and dialogue that pretty much amounts to "rawr"

Flagg. Exists only to advance the plot. You don't root for him, or hate him, he is just there.

Character arcs. There are none. About all you get is "we are a team now" which isn't much since they got a long fairly well since the begining.

Music. There were a ton of excellent songs actually, but throwing great, but often nonsensical music selections, at the audience to try to generate posative feeling towards the movie is weak.

Terrible use of flash backs in a few spots. Didnt need to see diablos dodgy cgi prison scene 2 or 3 times, or the flash back to enchantress and flagg that I watched happen 40 minutes ago.

Did we really need 3 helicopter crash scenes?

Pros:
Better than bvs
Captain boomerang was borderline fun (sub con: criminally underutalized)
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Not as bad as Man of Steel or Dawn of Justice, but still pretty meh.

 

Favorite part was when Deadshot jumped onto the police car and started gunning down all of the monsters in the street singlehandledy with everything he had in his wrist-mounted weaponry.

 

But, alas, this movie still has the exact same problem as its two predecessors: The threat level was too big. How many here would have preferred the main villain to have been the Joker, with Task Force X instead assembled for a black ops mission to stop whatever horrible plan the Joker was cooking up? That would have been a much more reasonable threat level for them to take on since the Joker is a big enough deal to be a threat without the movie having to force on us yet another "end of the world" type scenario. We don't need world-ending threats all the time for these movies to be entertaining. Just tell a story that's straightforward and wholesome without constantly trying to be so darn arrogant and epic in how uber serious the villain is. Joker would have been enough of a threat to deal with instead of the nobodies that Enchantress and her brother were. As is, Joker was completely wasted and served only as a distraction from the movie's main plot--what little of that there was here--and the two actual villains weren't the least bit threatening or interesting at all.

 

As for why Task Force X would be needed instead of Batman to stop the Joker, come up with some reason to get him out of the way like saying Batman's mysteriously gone of the grid since BvS for some reason (which could serve as more JL foreshadowing), or have the Joker's plot be something personal to the government that they'd want to deal with themselves without Batman's help or awareness.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Or maybe its the fact that the movie that got pitched was more Suicude Squad vs Joker, which is what also which a lot of movie goers were sold on, and even Trailers seemed to play Joker up as a Major character in the movie.
