A Review Of "Suicide Squad" -- A Bad Rendition Of The Comics

A Review Of "Suicide Squad" -- A Bad Rendition Of The Comics

There were some good things, but very few.


This past year, Warner Brothers released two movies: "Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" and "Suicide Squad." Critics trashed both movies, but with "Suicide Squad," they were a little more harsh. A lot people online gave mixed reviews. Well, I can say this: I liked it better than "Batman V. Superman," but out of all the movies I say this summer, it was toward the bottom of the list. Don't get me wrong wasn't the movie I ever seen but...the trailers showed the best parts of the movie.

It seemed that the movie was two separate movies together as one. There were some lighthearted moments but, then would quickly change over to something darker. The editing was all over the place -- this made the movie seem disorganized, and pretty clear which parts of scenes were the reshot parts of a scene. Some of the characters were more interesting than others, with character showing up for what seemed like five minutes before being killed off. However, the major flaw came down to one thing: it forgot that most of the characters were bad guys. It tried to make us feel sorry to one character, even though this character killed his family members including innocent kids. These characters maybe saving the world but, some don't deserve redemption.

Probably one of the best parts of the movie was the soundtrack.They used a lot of music, at times where they really didn't need to use music. Even though both songs will probably be overplayed very soon, "Heathens" by Twenty One Pilots and "Sucker for Pain" by Lil Wayne; Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign and X Ambaddadors fit the tone of the movie the most out of all the songs of the album. Though, I was ticked they cut off "Bohemian Rhapsody" right before the most memorable part of the song.

It was easy to tell that the cast was having fun, and were dedicated to their parts. Best parts of the movie were the parts were the villains were well villains. The romantic sub plots (Though I don't approve of the Harley Quinn/Joker relationship, it is a relationship built with abuse both mental and physical), are have some actual basis unlike some movies (cough, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" cough), including the slowly growing one between Deadshot and Harley Quinn who have a short relationship in the comics. The final part that I liked was taking of certain plot details from comic books. With a certain two characters, the scene was near incidental to the comic book except with different results.

All in all in could've been worse, but it could've be a lot better -- 4.5 skulls out of 10.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
