Birds of Prey is a dynamite girl-powered superhero movie exploding with ultra-colour and a butt load of fun. Yan’s wonderfully stylised film isn’t afraid to get silly (and sweary) compared to the royal mess that was 2016’s Suicide Squad. Think of a slightly tamer Deadpool without all the insufferable meta BS.
Joker review – a thrilling rendition but no masterpiece
Joker is a gritty and thrilling contemporary adaptation with an awards worthy performance from Joaquin Phoenix. A disturbing and demented origin story that breaks down the iconic Batman villain and strips him raw. What we’re left with is a frail, damaged and vulnerable member of a failed society… Even so, the film doesn’t break as much ground as one might expect.
Birds of Prey trailer – Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is back
Even if you weren’t a big fan of 2016’s villain outing Suicide Squad, you must admit that Margot Robbie carried the film with her balls out performance of the popular Batman villain… so much so that the all-female Harley Quinn spin-off Birds of Prey is now here and the first trailer has dropped.
Joker – final trailer has dropped and you should watch it
The final trailer for the new Joker movie featuring Joaquin Phoenix as the titular Batman villain is here.
Justice League review – not Wonder Woman, but still an improvement
The long-anticipated Justice League is finally here, and it’s totally fine. Amidst all the negative criticism and predictable Rotten Tomatoes backlash, it’s still a fun and entertaining ride.
Jack Nicholson films in Kino Aero
In honour of one of the original Hollywood bad boys, Kino Aero are screening a few Jack Nicholson films to celebrate the actor’s 80th birthday from 18/04 – 21/04.
The LEGO Batman Movie review
An occasional laugh-out-loud comedy that pays decent tribute to pop culture with spectacular effects and action sequences. It’s a movie or comic book geek’s dream, with enough added silliness to keep the kids entertained.
‘Gotham City Sirens’ is next Harley Quinn movie
So there’s so much happening in the DCE universe that it’s almost hard to keep up. We’ve got Wonder Woman coming out next year, followed closely by Justice League – let’s hope that these two films will restore our faith in the DCE universe after the ‘mixed’ reviews of Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. There was also news a while back that Margot Robbie would be getting her own Harley Quinn spin-off movie, because let’s face it, she was the coolest thing about Suicide Squad.
Suicide Squad review
The latest from the DC Entertainment universe films certainly had a lot of hype and hope from comic book fans, more so after the slaughter of Batman v Superman. Suicide Squad or just ‘Skwad’ as it’s been dubbed on social media, is a fun and somewhat thrilling ride into the world of DC supervillains, and that’s about it. Nothing profound going on here, just a fun superhero movie. But that’s ok, isn’t it?
