The only good thing about Rise of Shitwalker was the VFX. It was purty.

Real good time last night - the new ZILLA a pretty good flick.  Ass-loads of giant monsters killing Boston, plus fake Robert Forster, equals a good time.

The new X-MEN a beautiful film with a very simple vanilla story.  Still have no idea why they shit-canned the original cast, all of whom were better in their respective parts.

But the SFX, plus the talents of Sophie Turner made it at least watchable.

Sorry, I'll be too busy watching BIRDS OF PREY.

"The problem with Birds of Prey is not that it’s all about hating on men — all men, every single guy in the movie — the problem is that it’s dull to the point of numbing.

Listen, I’m not hard to please. In fact, I’m one of the few people who enjoyed Suicide Squad, the 2016 flick that introduced Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, the flamboyant, hyper-violent nihilist who squeaks with an exaggerated Brooklynese.

Hey, if you’re not going to accept a movie on its own terms, you shouldn’t bother. This is why I don’t bother to review most animated and fantasy titles. Those are terms I can’t accept. The terms of Birds of Prey aren’t hard to figure out. In this #MeToo era, where misandy is acceptable, even championed, you know everyone with a penis is either going to be a sexist, a sociopath, a rapist, or all three.

Whatever. As long as it’s done with style and verve… You see, unlike crybaby feminists, I can take a joke.

So, no, that’s not the problem. The problems are much deeper than that. Things like story, character, and monotonous action sequences.

There’s also a lot of dumb stuff. Even for a comic book movie, the amount of dumb is frequently startling."

It'll probably do well despite it's failings. Nihilism is hot right now.


https://datebook.sfchronicle.com/movies-tv/review-movies-dont-get-any-worse-than-birds-of-prey-this-is-the-bottom

“Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn” is more than horrible. It should not exist. Money should never have been raised for it. The screenplay should never have been filmed. Margot Robbie shouldn’t have produced it. She certainly shouldn’t have starred in it. It’s just a terrible thing to inflict on audiences, who, after all, didn’t hurt anyone and just hoped to have a nice time.

...

Those are a lot of facts, but none of those are playable. None of them suggest a personality, beyond some generalized zaniness. So what does Robbie do with such a role? She seizes on the detail that the Joker broke Harley’s heart, so that every time the Joker’s name is mentioned, Robbie’s face goes through contortions of anguish. But anguish alone can’t make a character.

What does Harley want? If she wanted the Joker back, that would be something. That could be a movie. If she wanted revenge, that would be a weak motive, but it would still be something.

But no, she has nothing driving her. There are people after her, so she reacts to that, but the audience is never aware of any particular goal that she might have, that might make her worth watching. She simply wants to not get killed, but that’s a negative motive — not somebody wanting to do something, but someone hoping someone else won’t do something to her. This makes her boring, and this makes “Birds of Prey” a hypnotizing, hard-to-stay-awake experience.


...

Apparently there's no McGuffin or any major motivation for the characters?

JOKER was nihilistic, but the character had a definite struggle, motivations, and an arc.

Something missing in every review so far - she's hit the wall.  Like hard.  Whatever sex appeal she had in Suicide Squad now loooooong gone.

Turning 30 is indeed a negative for this type of thing.

It was for her in any event.
