Ladies and gents welcome back to the SoG Podcast! On this episode we have a special guest with us via YouNow, well you’ll see what happens!
Well to get to the point, no matter what the critics are saying about this film DC is definitely heading in the right direction. For one thing this movie got me into a theatre instead of relegating it to ‘I’ll catch it on demand’ like I did for “Man of Steel” and “BvS”. Secondly, when I was done watching the movie I wasn’t thinking ‘What the hell did I just watch?’. Rather it felt like I’d go see it again. A lot of my positive reaction had to do with the tone and the characters. Gone were the brooding, heartless monsters (except for Amanda Waller, but then that’s the point of her character) and instead we got people with weird powers in weird situations. In all was a fun summer popcorn film so if you’re looking for that definitely give it a watch. For the spoiler part of this review keep on reading.
Hi folks, I’m starting a new column here on 2 Shots of Geek titled “So You’re Going to Watch” where I do a backgrounder for an upcoming comic book movie so you have all the details in one place. It’s mainly meant for non-comic book fans but there are details meant for everyone. On with the info on the Suicide Squad…
There was some special Yokai mischief at the Hasbro booths this year! Fans could pick up the Gemnyan medal set at the Hasbro booth during SDCC.
Trailers from the Big Two (DC and Marvel) from SDCC.
I’m taking a break from my SDCC updates to take us back to 1988 and to the question: “can one bad day make a man a monster?” A question wrestled with in Alan Moore’s “The Killing Joke”, the subject of my first classic comic review.
