Eric Andre goes insanely hard
If I saw this movie back in 1997, I'd probably report back to Letterboxd hailing it as a "masterpiece" like most people have mentioned in their reviews. This movie is definitely entertaining but watching this 23 years later, the sentiment didn't age well. First of all, I just can't stomach looking at Kevin Spacey in movies. I felt uncomfortable by his presence in the movie - not by any means the movie's fault, just personal preference. Also I couldn't stand…
Suicide Squad doesn't care about character development, only the undeserved arcs. it's weird to think especially since this is such a character driven movie with only a small portion of the squad realized. the rest of the squad that wasn't realized i didn't care for especially since their backstories were so rushed i didn't even bother.
anyways, it's all true. shit storytelling, shit editing, a lot of shit. but what they're not telling you is that it has a sweet soundtrack that is only there for some decently cool moments that never ever mesh together fluently... well, like most of the movie.
probably would've functioned better as a short film but I mainly say this because I wouldn't of wanted to miss out on that killer directing.
anyways, it's not just the fact the movie feels long winded as hell, it's the fact that the stuff that needs to be inferred are either way too vague or way too obvious - there's no in between.
