My first real day after completing the sleeping system and so I must go to the cinema. There wasn’t a lot on really and so I almost flipped a coin between The Suicide Squad and The Last Letter From Your Lover, which I still might go and see. Driving along Chariot Way I could see that the tide was very much high, small waves lapping at the edges of the mudbanks and leaves poking through the surface of the river.
After watching this movie I rated it on IMDB. Actually I rated it the day after because there are issues with tweeting something when you have removed Twitter from your phone. I think that possible the scoring isn’t as raw as it should be but I just need to remember to follow the guidance I established in this communication. I guess I also need to point out that this film, The Suicide Squad, is different to one I watched in 2016 called Suicide Squad. Here’s the result:
I rated the The Suicide Squad (2021) 8/10 – IMDb – https://t.co/ofPy57kZlv— Ian Parish (@iparish) August 10, 2021
I actually really enjoyed this film. It’s silly and funny and over the top. I guess it’s a bit like Deadpool but with more characters. The film had a very comic feel to it with flashbacks and floating graphics. It worked well. I’m not sure there’s a whole lot more I can say. This outcome is surprising as I don’t often rate superhero movies and definitely not DC ones. But, hey, it is what it is.
I published this without writing the whole “in this year” thing, so here goes. The year 1916:
- Emma Goldman is arrested for lecturing on birth control.
- The toggle light switch is invented.
- 4 people die of shark attack along the Jersey Shore.
- Margaret Sanger opens a birth control clinic.
- War and shit is happening and that’s pretty fucking depressing.
