Star Wars

I've just started watching the Clone Wars.

I'm almost done with season 2.  And I am very impressed.

Star Wars

Hey Space Cowboys and Girls!

I just finished the amazing monthly edition "Lattes With Leia", 2 savvy ladies talking about Star Wars for an hour.  My cup of Jawa Juice.
This Edition: "Best of..."  I played along at home.  Maybe you can as well.  I'd love to hear your Lattes' -Inspired Best of List.
So do what I do, give the Lattes Ladies a Spin and Play Along at Home!
The Force will be with you.  Always.  ^_^
Cheers!

Suicide Squad

Spoiler-Free:

Suicide Squad was a great accompaniment to the eventual over-story of the new DC Live-Action Movies.
A PG-13 attempt at matching Marvel's Deadpool with some pottymouthed fan service.
In the end, it was a simple movie, told in three acts with relatable characters.  I think it better use of the action figures in this Movie Universe's Toybox.
MoS, BvS and the introduction of "metahumans" is the familiar backdrop and this story tells itself.  The stakes are in the backstory.  The exposition is seamless.  The Big Bad is Believable if you know your DCU.  The threat was a CGI-Frakfest yet the strength was in the roles & their actors.  The Story was Color-By-Numbers in 3 Acts.  You know...a movie.
Will Smith I knew was gonna steal this show.  He was Lawton, the Deadshot.  Really filled the role with depth & humanity.  As this movie went, I was most interested in seeing him.  He's a good actor.
Margot Robbie really was Harley Quinn.  Nailed it...POW!
I'm sorry if you were disappointed with it...really.  I don't know what you're expecting.  It's one of the reasons I go into movies Spoiler-Free.  I don't prejudge.  I like movies.  And as dumb action movies go, this is good.  Act 2 is a mini-remake of "Escape From New York".  Hey, I liked Jared Leto's Joker and his apparent devotion to his moll.  Harley's Origin Story is Important to Me as a Fan....a Bat-Fan.  And they did it right, or close enough.  Harley was never a victim of Joker like the New 52 Version.  In the original source Batman: The Animated Series, Arkham Asylum psychologist Dr. Harleen Quinzel was a Conscious Choicemaker and fell in love with Her Puddin.
Their screentime together is actually quite charming.
Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang, Katana. They were spot on.  Killer Croc was really cool.

It's just a Summer action movie.  Go, Enjoy.  Get some popcorn.  Stay for the Stinger.  I dunno how Infinitely Rewatchable it is yet I'll give it a second spin, it's only 'when"?
