My Thoughts:

I seen this one for the first time a few years back. While I still enjoyed it... It did seem to loose a bit of something on a second viewing. I don't know... I guess it just didn't feel as new and different to me this time. But the film is a good 10 years old now. Still worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

Enjoyed this movie just as much this time as I did the first time I watched it. It is definitely heavier on the violence as well as some suggestive dialog. So it is not one for the kiddies... but I don't think it is to bad... I would say the teens on up would enjoy this movie. One thing I did find a little on the strange side is that you don't hear the name Wonder Woman till the end of the movie. But that is such a minor thing it doesn't matter in the least.

My Thoughts:

I must say I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I really liked the story line.... well the whole set up of Suicide Squad as I wasn't too familiar with it before this film came out. When I first heard it was being made I had my doubts. But now I see it as a must see and can easily see myself watching it again. I think there was 2 stand out cast members in this one... Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robie as Harley Quinn. Another thing I noticed is that DC taking a page out of Marvel's playbook with mid/end credit scenes leading up to the Justice League film. This one is highly recommended.

I found this to be a very entertaining film. It is a good true story... and it has several familiar faces. Unlike most true story films this one doesn't give you any kind of notes on what happened after the story that was told.... and I would have liked to have seen that. But over-all the film easily kept my attention and seemed to go by quickly. Definitely worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

While a decent movie... I really did expect more from it. It should have been a little less story driven and a little more action. Plus it felt like more of a "continuing adventures" type film then telling the legend of Tarzan. Then there is the fact that they changed Jane's whole background. Worth checking out... but there is definitely better Tarzan movies out there.

My Thoughts:

This one... while not quite as good as I remembered it to be is still some fun entertainment. Of course my tastes has changed since the last time I seen it back in my teens. But still today this film is worth a watch... a fun flick with a good message.

One of the extras on the blu-ray disc is the pilot episode what was an attempt of a TV sitcom version of the film. The pilot basically runs the same story line of the movie but no where near as good. The whole revenge part was rushed... made no sense... and was never explained.

I remember back in the '80s to early '90s I would never miss this film when it aired on cable. But I must say this one didn't hold up as well as I expected.

My Thoughts:

This is coming from a person that while liked the idea of the TV series... never liked the series itself. But lets face it... the series is geared to a much younger crowd then me. This isn't the case with this film. It felt much more like an origin story of superheroes. Going into this film I wasn't sure it would be something I would enjoy and keep in my collection... Now I can say I enjoyed this film... it will be staying in my collection... and I would even like to see a sequel or two. I would say you should definitely give this one a chance even if you weren't a fan of the series.
