I didn’t enjoy this, unfortunately (spoilers) Way too much fan service in Season 2 (spoilers) Is TV a better format for 'Stars Wars' than cinema? Haunting Reminded me of a comedic take on 'Silence of the Lambs' (spoilers) Terrific movie Superb film Vastly underrated Genuinely awful Underrated film View all posts >

It’s definitely towards the bottom. 1) Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) 2) Wonder Woman 3) Man of Steel 4) Shazam 5) Batman v Superman 6) Aquaman 7) Wonder Woman 1984 8) Suicide Squad 9) Justice League [b]-------------------------------------------- You can read all of my latest film reviews here: [url]https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/about/Jake[/url][/b] I was trying to remember who the sympathetic male characters were in this film and only came up with: the old homeless guy, Steve Trevor, and the unnamed man who Steve possesses.

Vance published 'Hillbilly Elegy', a book exploring the Appalachian values of his Kentucky-based family. As the subtitle indicates - “A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis” - Vance had set out to describe the roots and consequences of a breakdown. At a time when many observers were puzzling over why downtrodden working-class whites would have embraced a candidate whose conduct and origins seemed so alien to their professed values, it provided some easy answers. The book became a sensation and that sensation in turn generated a deep, slow-burning backlash. There was no way Ron Howard’s project wasn’t going to be greeted with fusillades of rhetorical buckshot from one side or the other, particularly while everyone's emotions were still churning after Trump's loss to Biden during a catastrophic year for Americans.

While her forcefield was essential for keeping the teenagers imprisoned on the hospital grounds, assigning just one person to monitor four powerful, psychologically disturbed mutants doesn’t make sense. Rhane, arguably the weakest, easily injured Reyes via ambush.

Yes, it does sound like Takal pitched a feminist horror movie remake and then tried to shoehorn that angle into the only intellectual property she was offered. It's a shame, because it seems like it's still quite difficult for filmmakers to get movies with feminist-themes green-lit by studios. The bad ones (Paul Feig's 'Ghostbusters' reboot, for example) seem to impact the success of the good ones ('Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)' was surprisingly good).
