    • Your criticism is as impressive as ever. But your sound effects are starting to get a little repetitive. Love 'em, but starting not too. Keep up the good work. Your monologue is always professional, even if your gimmicks are getting to be as appreciable as the objects of your critiques. I want new gags. I want new gimmicks. You should try Sonny Brooks if you're a real whiskey fan. Smooth whisky should be a paradoxical term. I'm also an expert on the vintage of two dollar a jug wines, that go good with Twinkies. It's Wild Irish Rose or nothing else. Mad Dog 20/20 will do if you don't have any Twinkies. Stay away from Night Train, unless you like seeing your own bile in the morning. Where do we make requests? Love your show. I'm gone.

  • It's hard to make a good superhero movie. I think when there's a successful one, they don't know what made it successful, and when there's a flop, they don't understand what made it flop.

  • This movie just seems forgettable. Reminds me of more recent Tarantino flicks, where they just rely on an overstuffed cast carrying a flat script.

  • When I saw the trailer and finished all I could think was ''is that it?'' with a serious to bored expression on my face.

    CrazyknightCrazyknight2 napja
  • Well, I've found trailer is good because it shows interesting characters and their chemistry. For example, what could we say about man in yellow t-shirt from the first film? Well, he. .. was there..? Now it is certainly interesting to see him on camera. The same applies to Elba and other actors/characters. The issue " there are jokes and everything is so colorful, it is not dark as should be!!!!11" Well, obviously film could be pretty dark without yelling "look how much grim and bitter i am!" Why didn't we see anything concrete in the trailer? I presume each scene could be a major spoiler. There are already lots of guessing based on the trailer who would die in the film

  • I don't necessarily disagree with some of the points raised in this video, but it is a little difficult to take the criticisms seriously when they come from a grown man who unironically uses names like "Drake Maverick" in his stories 😂

  • I must be in the minority, but I actually liked Suicide Squad, It totally worked as a one off movie in the DCU. But that's the catch, it should have been a one off, and Quinn should have been made the Joker deranged, annoying, yet enjoyable right hand in the next Batman movie. Instead, we got seagulls over the garbage dump, oh wait I mean "BiRdS oF pReY" train wrecking any potential on that front.

  • Saw this trailer yesterday in a real theater and it looked bad. I saw the Demonslayer movie with the fam and it was great! While I’m opining, Stella midnight lager is no purple tin but still enjoyable. I’m not feeling good after knocking back a nearly expired can of Hormel chili for a late supper. I know it won’t stay in my body long. That’s all I’ve got....

  • I feel like I'm the only one that didn't mind the original. I didn't think it was amazing or anything but I didn't think it was as bad as everybody else made it out to be. Jared Leto's Joker was a bit over the top but I think all the negativity was mostly due to people comparing it to the cult like following that Heath Ledger had trying to somewhat "protect his legacy." Or maybe I just have shitty taste in movies and it was utter garbage.

  • The animated movie "Assault on Arkham" was supposed to serve as a test run for the suicide squad to see how they would translate from comic to film, people liked it since it had action, espionage, well defined characters and an obvious respect for the Batman lore that most of the characters came from. These live action movies are being made with none of those things it makes you wonder, what was the point? Edit: Also Jared Leto's Joker is cringey as hell and seeing more of it only intensifies my hate

  • I saw the trailer, 4 weeks ago, and the only two things I remember from it are King Shark apparently eating a person, and Starro, everything else disappeared in a haze. I still don't entirely understand why DC is trying to court the Marvel method/fans... DC and Marvel have always been extremely oppositional tonally, not just the movies. I am at a point in my life where I don't give a shit about either company, but, it looks really strange from the outside to watch DC spend a decade or whatever courting Zack Snyder's vision of the comics, which, based on the 1 to 1 of 300 to movie, I'm fairly sure Zack just uses the comics as storyboarding, with a little bit of touching up the dialogue... and then suddenly, DC goes: "Let's get the most tonally antithetical director in Hollywood to 'punch up' Zack's latest work while he's away dealing with family stuff, I'm sure the fans will love it, it's still comics..." On top of that, I have started to hate James Gunn, don't entirely think I can put a finger on why, but, he went too hard on making a James Gunn/Joss Whedon-sounding script for Guardians 2. Though, the 'make a couple of decent, but not necessarily good horror movies, get hired to do a movie with a budget, hope money rolls in' worked for Warner Bros and Peter Jackson, and I think that's what has lead to the rise of Hollywood movies getting directed by low-budget horror directors...

  • You were able to understand all of that about the movie from the first trailer? I understand not liking the trailer and not feeling the jokes, usually jokes don’t land well in the trailers and this one was more dialogue and jokes, less action. But this much of negativity from the first trailer seems like an overkill to me. I feel like they don’t want to spoil the deaths and that’s why they are not showing the big moments. We haven’t properly seen most of the squad members in action; Peacemaker’s jet pack, ratcatcher’s rats, bloodsports’s various weapons, polka dots, weasel, tdk, we haven’t even seen bumerang in action. There are a lot of big moments that they didn’t give us in the tralier so I am still optimistic. And Gunn’s movies before the Guardians are pretty good, including the ones he wrote. Slither is one of the best in its category imo.

    • @Aryaman Mehrotra Without films like Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Terminator, Predator, Back to the future, etc. cinema would not be as popular. Serious films that are supposedly being "ruined" actually rely on big blockbusters like CBM to pave the way for them otherwise cinema would just be a relatively niche market.
