    Reading some reviews from Rotten Tomatoes…

    “How early will the fanboys who flock to see Suicide Squad
    — smug in the knowledge that they’ve won the day, that Hollywood is now
    desperate to cater to their tastes above all others’ — admit that
    they’re watching the year’s most muddled piece of storytelling? Will
    they say, “Enough!”? Or will they vent over the damage to their favorite
    characters and promptly move on to debating who should direct the next
    stupid, overblown Suicide Squad movie?”

    So this is where we are now. Revenge reviews? Really? It really is a sad time. Garbage like Ghostbusters is bolstered in order to make one statement while movies geeks are actually excited about get panned to make another.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Agreed. This is an utterly pathetic era of pop culture (and society in general, but that’s another story). It’s almost enough to make one want to give up on movies permanently. Certainly, I wonder why anyone would continue to pay attention to critics, or care about anything they have to say. They’re only interested in spreading ideologies and pursuing agendas now. Journalistic integrity and a love of the art form has completely disappeared.

  • Toruk_Makto

    “Journalistic integrity, and a love of the cinematic art form for its own sake, has completely disappeared.”

    They’ve thrown objectivity completely out the window and don’t even try to hide it. I’m done with em.

  • Dee-abolik

    Yep, yet some whiny geeks still insist we live in the best geek era of all time and should gobble down what is thrown at us.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    That’s exactly on point. I certainly am feeling less up for seeing new movies lately.

  • Toruk_Makto

    Those are the worst kind of geeks. My uncle is like that…no discerning palate what-so-ever. If Hollywood squirts it out..he lapse it up. If it was up to sycophants like him we’d still be getting movies like Elektra. Directors and studios wouldn’t even bother trying to make a decent film.

    I’ve been looking forward to Suicide Squad for months…but if the movie really sucks I’ll lay into harder than anyone.

  • While it certainly is not the “best geek era of all time”, most of us geeks especially the comic geeks are benefitting from having ur favorite characters onscreen as well as videogames, tv series and such.
    This is in part thanks to more advanced technology.Back then we could not see half the special effects that would showcase the true potntitual of a comic character like say, the Hulk, Thor or even Ironman.But aside from the aestheics, what’s equally important is a solid cohesive story as well as direction without those components, the IP based film can easily come apart at the seams.

    I had high hopes for SS, and if what I am hearing is true than this may mark the beggining of DC’s or even comic films’ deathknell.

  • I’m one to overlook flaws within a film. (Hulk, Daredevil,Watchmen, etc.) but yes if its Elektra, Catwoman,Bayformers and Blade Trinity bad, I’m gonna call them out for it. I guess your Uncle has this appreciation for comic based films lthat had never seen the light of day back during the 70s, 80s and to a lesser extent, the 90s..Ergo he’s lapping the shit up with delight.

  • Dee-abolik

    Yeah I have no problem agreeing to a certain point, but as you said, you should still be allowed to criticize…as you said, getting a Hulk movie doesn’t mean it’s necessarily good.

  • The first HULK gets a pass from me because of its unique storytelling and psychological metaphors. Unfortunately, it went over many Geeks’ heads who expected the “ARRGGH Hulk Shash” archetype. There were some flaws here and there but ultimately, I thought it was a very good effort unlike Ghost Rider. UGH!

  • Toruk_Makto

    He has an appreciation for soft-chairs, junk-food, and moving objects on screen.

    He’s the kind of person who would try to defend lines like Catwoman’s:
    “It’s overtime!”

    To paraphrase the great Worf:
    “if you were not my Uncle, I would disembowel you where you stand!”

  • Dee-abolik

    I just used the Hulk as example. Put any movie there.

  • I cringe whenever I hear Berry say that line from the Movie!!! AHHH

  • I know, but its gotten such a bad rap I couldnt resist defending it.(:’

  • Dee-abolik

    Btw, what’s up with Ghost Rider? It should be the best superhero movie ever. such a great concept, so botched.

  • Toruk_Makto

    I watched that movie again out of curiosity awhile ago and almost vomited on multiple occasions.

  • Here’s the deal Stef, Goyer’s first draft was so bad that it delayed production for awhile and to think that Johnny Depp was interested in the role for awhile until Cage wormed his way into the part. Sure it was cute how he” channeld” Elvis somewhat, but when you throw in a shitty goth portrayal of the villain; Blackheart, a tongue n cheek Mephiston (Peter Honda, Easy Rider get it?) and dumb dialogue like “Love can make a man do powerful things’ or something sappy of that ilk, I can see why it received piss poor ratings. Good special effects and Eva Mendes was effin hawt as always! The sequel was much, much worse and directed by David Goyer who is now an overrated piece of shit.

    sadly, instead of adding GR to the roster of Netflix shows, (He was a Defender as well) Marvel/Dis-ney decided to drop said character in agents of shield instead…

    Um, yeah….

  • Berry owes me a BJ for enduring such torture!!
    Or…

  • Toruk_Makto

    She can give me money…I’ll take the sex from Angela Bassett or Nina Long.

    “Sexy without even trying…”

    “Who…me?.”

    “Me too!”
    http://popminute.com/photo/1/nia_long_the_best_man_holiday_premiere8.jpg

    Berry looks hot but when she tries to be sexy I find her to be the exact opposite. Almost like she doesn’t know what exactly sexy is.
    I would vote her for the most un-sexiest pretty woman award.
    1. Haley Berry
    2. Tina Fey

  • HAHAHAHAH! Agreed with Nia Long but as much as I like Angela Basset, I don’t see her as sexually attractive as Berry in her prime of course.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    What a pair! (Long’s “twins”)

    Fuck Halle Berry. Her version of Storm was pathetic. Basset would’ve killed that role in the proposed Cameron/Bigelow version of X-Men from the early nineties.

  • Hey, I always rooted for Basset as Storm but I heard she turned it down when offered. So if Berry was lying spread eagle in your bed, you would actually turn her down?

    If so, fine. I’ll gladly take her off your hands.?

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    “So if Berry was lying spread eagle in your bed, you would actually turn her down?

    Hell, no! I may be insane, but I’m not that insane. As long as she doesn’t talk, we’re golden. XD

  • Toruk_Makto

    Heh, it’s more a personality thing. I think Halle’s cute as long as she doesn’t move or talk.

  • EXACTLY!

  • Very good answer!
    Ya had me worried for a sec.?

  • Bop

    If this movie were rated-R as it should have been I would have watched it in the cinema even with Will Smith as Deadshot, which was absolutely the wrong choice.

  • Bop

    “and society in general, but that’s another story”

    LOL. So true.

  • Bop

    I don’t know what those whiny geeks smoked. I guess they are like toilets. They swallow shit in all kinds of forms.

  • Bop

    I didn’t see it but I guess I would vomit too.

  • Bop

    I agree. It is exactly what I think of Halle Berry.

  • Bop

    Ghost Rider was shit, because of Cage, but also because they wasted a good opportunity to make a horror-like movie.

  • Bop

    I still can’t believe how much they fucked that up.
