    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★★

    Having slept on this, I can confidently call it pretty badass. 

    Harley Quinn as the Britta Perry of Gotham is a fun turn. Also fantastic that Robbie is allowed ample room to play and emote beyond the boorish “sexy sexiness” of The Skwad. Like, even just the simple choice to cut her hair does her wonders. It’s amazing. 

    More stuff I loved, the decision to make Black Canary a legacy character which I think roundly honors the Blackhawks’ history with…

    The Father's Shadow

    ★★

    Part 1 of 2 of my FINAL GIRLS BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL 2020 coverage. 

    I have to say, kind of a snooze. It has a fun last 20 minutes but getting there is kind of a slog. 

    It has a wonderful mood and texture though. My knee jerk reaction though is just sort of Eh. 

    A Gentleman’s Four! (Maybe).

    The absolute standout of this Weekend Watch™️. This movie is straight gonzo. 

    It’s hilariously over violent. Believes in little to nothing besides the “right of might” (also magnets weirdly?). Has the sexual attitude of a 13 year old 4channer. And also SOMEHOW stars MELANIE LAURENT?! 

    I LOVEDDDDEEEEDDDEEEEEDDD it. It’s like watching a Flash Rogues movie. SO many people die. BADLY. It’s hysterical. You truly have to see it to believe it. 

    Truly hilarious that as soon as Bay ejected out of the traditional studio system, he makes one of the meanest movies I’ve ever seen. 

    ALL THE ⭐️s! Jefferton says CHECK. IT. OUT.

    These movies are so goddamn frustrating. Shoot Kinberg into the sun. 

    At least they gave Kurt a sword (for all of three minutes).
