I didn't mind Leto, his Joker was actually spot-on for the Suicide/Nightmare Joker. I still think he's trying to be Heath Ledger a bit much tho... apart from that, I think he does a good job personally.Just finished watching it (second day).
Didn't feel long. Much better than the last clusterfuck. Don't know who half the bad guys are, dislike the fact that "gold" seems to be the colour that DC have gone for (like a shit colour palate from 300), but story flowed and was much better.
I hope DC reverse their decisions to have Jared Leto anywhere near their franchise any more though.
He is tho?Yeeeeaaaahhhh.
Is his lack of screen presence and charisma?He is tho?
The only thing that let him down....
Agree. But giving Whedon the benefit of the doubt - give him 4 hours and maybe something good would have come of it.Just watched it. Its a. Interesting to see just how bad Whedon's edit was, and b. How Warner Bros could have had an MCU if they'd shown some more balls.
I dinna, I'll agree to disagree. I think he'd shine in a feature-length movie IF it was done right. you could arguably say that about any actor tho... so I guess we just have to see how it goes.Is his lack of screen presence and charisma?
Dress him up how you like, he's still shit.
Agree. But giving Whedon the benefit of the doubt - give him 4 hours and maybe something good would have come of it.
I'm really not sure about that. Sure, it was probably impossible to make a coherent 2.5 hour movie out of that, but he could have still done a good 3 hour one (you can save 20 minutes by lopping off the indulgent epilogue alone, which was pretty much entirely setup and fan service) and it would have got much better reviews and set up the planned future movies. But Whedon's cuts seem bizarre in retrospect (for example he basically took out the entire Cyborg backstory, which is fairly important!), not to mention the reshoots; (why did the whole Henry Cavill's moustache saga happen at all? Seeing the footage that was already there, it makes absolutely no sense).Agree. But giving Whedon the benefit of the doubt - give him 4 hours and maybe something good would have come of it.
I also think Leto can be a very good actor (excellent in Dallas Buyers Club), but batman films are generally all shit anyway.He is tho?
The only thing that let him down in Suicide Squad was the stupid tattoos and lack of screen time. Every Joker iteration is different in Batman movies. I want to see what he's like in a full feature movie rather than 10-20 minutes of screen time.
There's meant to be a Joker and Harley Quin movie coming up, I hope it's Leto, I want to see how he is with extended screentime. Leto is a good actor, he was shite in Bladerunner 2049 mind, I thought his character in that was.... very toss but he is a good actor in general.
For me it's because when I've seen him as Joker my mind has gone "you're shit, nect please".Not sure why there is the hate for Jared Leto
I thought it was a great Saturday night film.Just watched Extraction on Netflix. Loved it. Brutal fight sequences, fantastic one-shot action scenes, and I don't care if people don't think it's high brow but I like the story.
And that Indian chap is fucking bad ass. I want to see him in more stuff.
"Let him fucking stay there"Not much else to do so I'm watching my backlog. Just watched Deadwood The Movie. Al Swearengen's final line is epic.
