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

    ★★★★★

    For what the movie tries to be – a 2 hour long montage of sublimely fantabulous yet ultraviolent series of GIF-able moments of women being badass and rebellious – it worked out beautifully. I'm not here for a sophisticated plot, the superhero comic book nerd lores, nor Oscar worthy performances. I'm here for the pulp. This is a 4 star movie, but I put down 5 stars for the efforts it took to make this happen, and the fact that it passed the Bechdel Test in flying rainbow colors.

    A simple yet powerful film. Even if they don't know about The National, everyone I showed this to ended up in a puddle of tears.

    Sexist portrayals of women, sociopathic definition of romance, doesn't pass the Bechdel Test. This movie really doesn't age well.

    If mother! has an insanity level of 11 out of 10 and realism of 5 out of 10, this has insanity of 10 out of 10 and realism of 10 out of 10.
