Movie Review – The Gentlemen

We're obviously early in, but I already have my favorite film of 2020 thus far. I LOVE a character driven story, and Guy Ritchie is a filmmaker that really shines when he does these kinds of films.'Lock,...

Let’s take a closer look at how color saturation and other features in Photoshop might have been used to spawn the latest Presidential meme. If any of you are interested in an orange face you can pick up...

Movie Review – Birds of Prey: The Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn

by | Feb 7, 2020 | Critic Review, Movie Reviews

Let’s get something straight right from Jump Street…from the trailers, I had NO desire to see this film. And before you do your usual “Here you go again hating on the wimmens, Joe!”, you’re wrong.

I LOVED the Paul Dini and Bruce Timm creation of Harley Quinn. I had a Harley Quinn coffee mug from the Warner Bros. Studio Store in the late ’90s. I had a Harley Quinn animator’s maquette.

See? YOU don’t even know what a maquette is…but I had one way back, and I had one probably before you ever heard the name Harley Quinn.

In fact, I go so far back with Harley that when I found out that Kevin Smith named his daughter ‘Harley Quinn Smith’, I thought “That’s Metal AF, bro! Why didn’t I think of that?”

So needless to say, I dig me some Harleen Quinzel.

BUT…I wasn’t sure how I felt about Margot Robbie’s Harley…until tonight.

‘Birds Of Prey’ is an incredibly fun film! I know one isn’t supposed to use the word ‘fun’ these days, but fuck you, this was a fun film.

OH…and ‘Lil Ladies’ who think I don’t like watching you be empowered? This right here is your get down!

This is broads whoopin’ the ever-lovin’ cowboy shit out of men ALL DAY, and it was fantastic!

Why? Because there was no message here. It just…happened. And it happened in gloriously violent ways!

From the looks of the theater I was in on opening night, ‘Birds Of Prey’ is going to disappoint at the box office this weekend, and that’s a shame. It’s stylistic, it’s funny, it’s violent, it’s vulgar…and it’s Comic Book and Comic Book gets.

So I eventually landed on this podcast today. It's the story of the disappearance and clear murder of Kristin Smart in 1996. Now, it's rather infuriating because it's abundantly clear who killed her, but...

Shamokin Must Be a MAGICAL Place to Live

This was JUST brought to my attention last night, but you may have seen it before. Imagine a town so bereft of anything culturally relevant, that a Dunkin' DoNITS being temporarily closed could cause this...
