A fantastic fictional war story centered around a group of women living through a dark and troubling time.
LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK.
Talk about an unoriginal title… At least it tells you everything you need to know about the stories featured here. I don’t know why I even keep up with these when they have been subpar so far, six volumes in…
Out of the 17 movies I watched in August, The Suicide Squad (2021) was my favourite. In all honesty, I could also give it to Pig (2021) or A Silent Voice (2016) but I had to pick one and my inner DC fanboy took over. ;).
The story is about supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison joining the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
It’s a deliriously hyperviolent soft reboot sending D-list supervillains into treacherous grounds on a life-threatening mission.
Offering visually stunning gore, spectacular dynamic camera angles, clever titles screens, impeccable soundtrack, authentic heart-warming moments, and entertaining dark humour, this high-budget blockbuster is another step in the right direction.
Despite a straightforward and uncomplicated story with a predictable twist, it offers plenty of ambitious and staggering narrative decisions (including numerous deaths) that is remarkably carried by a stellar cast, with notable performances by Bloodsport (Idris Elba), King Shark (Sylvester Stallone), Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior), and Peacemaker (John Cena).
Finishing up this one to kickstart September! So far it has been a witty and fun adventure filled with colourful characters.
A hectic month of August that I probably should’ve seen coming. Throughout the month, through three different weeks, I had to go on job-related trips to train cops in their bodycam journey and these adventures drained me enough to make it more complicated to enjoy peace and quiet. It also didn’t help that I had a second and final essay to hand in towards the end of the month that really took away any energy in me to write anything. Thankfully, the end of the month coincided with some respite on all fronts, giving me the opportunity to get back in the blogging game, catch up on posts, update my stuff, and organize myself for the upcoming weeks. That insane heatwave throughout the end of August was also killer. I’m honestly glad for the cooler weather to come. I wouldn’t even be surprised if it started snowing earlier than ever before this year. Did you realize that we just got through 3/4th of the year? 2022 is right there, peaking at us around the corner…
