    Don't know when the official social embargo drops, but between RogerEbert.com's Brian Tallerico and AV Club's AA Dowd liking it, the non-fanboy critics seem to be digging The Suicide Squad well so far.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    This doesn't sound like a positive review to me. Was there more?

    I didn't saw that tweet, but he logged the same on letterboxd ("James Gunn got WB to make a mega-budget Troma movie. Review Wednesday.") and he must mean it positively because it's ranking it #9 on his DC movie list (so, from the films around it, at the very least it's 3.5/5 for him). A.A. Dowd is from the tweet below, after he logged and "liked" the film on letterboxd earlier:

    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Eh, even the non-fanboy critics are fanboys. It's almost as if the studios cherry pick reviewers they know will deliver a positive review and share it on social. thinking_face_emoji.jpg

    I wouldn't call Dowd a fanboy in a strict sense because he isn't given to frivolous exaggeration, but he's def been a fan of Gunn's work for a long while, going all the way back to "Shiver," and giving soft passes on "Guardians" and "Belko."

    Tallerico is soft in the head and I'd call him a weak writer and a bad journalist if doing so meant anything, but as his industry literally has no standards, it doesn't so I won't, lol. (RogerEbert.com means nothing, too, as Chaz Ebert is more interested in promoting a brand than protecting a legacy. She's partnered with Lights Camera Jackson for an online game show, ffs.)

    The people who will see "Suicide Squad" opening weekend are the same people who gave the Snyder cut a chance, ie, they're already primed to enjoy the material. The reviews won't matter, the studios know this, and in a sense anything you see before release day is another arm of the marketing department.

    That said (oof) I expect this version of "Suicide Squad" to be very good in a very James Gunn way. Gunn's one strength as a commercial filmmaker is his consistency. (He's sorta like Kevin Smith or Wes Anderson that way.)

    Now wait a minute, whats wrong with giving a directors cut of a film a chance after a film that was taken away from them and 75% reshot?

    Michael B. Jordan producing and possibly starring in the Val-Zod version of Superman for HBO Max

    This is entirely separate from the black Superman project being worked on by J.J. Abrams, which looks to still be going ahead.

    I'm disappointed I watched that trailer and there wasn't a single shot of him going fast.

    Supposedly cleaner and higher-res.

    I didn't think bulletproof vests and stuff worked like that.

    Getting shot point blank with a machine gun wouldn't he at least get knocked backwards?

    Can we get Scar in here please?

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Is it just me, or is everyone experiencing non-1080p HD video on youtube? That youtube trailer shows up blocky even with 1080p selected. The vimeo one, looks crisp as fuck.

    Not just you. I assumed my base level PC was the issue, but the vimeo was 10x better.
