TwitView: “A Cure For Wellness”

Promising start, horrible-in-a-bad-way finish.  In-between is a whole lot of horror padding, and a waste of gorgeous cinematography and production design.  If you must head out to see this derivative mess, watch the first 40 minutes, then head home and write the rest in your head.  I guarantee it’ll be better than what goes on onscreen.

Review: Suicide Squad, B-

“All my friends are heathens take it slow.  Wait for them to ask you who you know.  Please don’t make any sudden moves.  You don’t know the half of the abuse” – Heathens by Twenty One Pilots (Suicide Squad soundtrack).

Yeah, those lyrics right about sum up this ragtag crew of misfits, weirdos, throwaways and just plain crazy folk.  In fact, the entire soundtrack is a veritable ode to each of the characters.  This film gets the job done.  And by that I mean it’s a perfectly enjoyable action ride at the cinemaplex.  What it’s not, is a fantasticly amazing, story intertwined, bridging of all things in the DC Universe.  And that’s ok, it doesn’t need to be.  I think there’s way too much pressure on comic book film-makers to not just make a good movie, which this is, but somehow weave magic into the story lines and forcibly captivate us into selling our young to get tickets to the next cross over or installment.  How about just a fun and enjoyable ride?  Suicide Squad is that.  B-
