    The Suicide Squad: Salvaging a Catastrophe

    Honestly? I’m amazed this movie exists. Not just because they somehow managed to get James Gunn who somehow managed to convince DC to let him use characters like Polka-Dot Man and John Cena. But because the first movie was a fucking catastrophe! It’s no secret that the first Suicide Squad was a butchered nightmare. It […]

It’s been around since 2013 with ‘Man of Steel‘, but they’ve only managed to achieve decent receptions with ‘Wonder-Woman‘, sort of ‘Aquaman‘, and their most recent endeavor: ‘Shazam!’. But their other films, such as […]
