Suicide Squad

This is the final nail in the coffin for DC, people. They gotta step up their game, otherwise they're will commit heroic suicide (pun intended) Here are some of my complaints:

-Bad Editing: Most transitions from one scene to the next are nonsensical and rather awkward, took me out of the experience rather quickly. Another thing to note is the rather darkish lighting in the entire thing, makes it hard to make out what's going on.

- Text in the introductory sequence: That's pretty much a big middle finger to cinema, couldn't they have edited it in a way that's interesting? Oh wait...

-Boring action: Same CGI minion type enemies that drain any excitement the action may have. Also, the final sequence is also terribly shot, and you can barely make out anything, thanks to the muddy lighting and a dense fog, I think it was.

-Generic end-of-humanity stake and a pretty weak villain, makes the recent streak of forgettable Marvel villains look like The Joker from The Dark Knight, which leads me to...

-The Joker's subplot could have been cut entirely, by the way, Jared Leto's interpretation of the titular villain is cartoony, to say the least. Never intimidating, unlike his predecesors.

-Random spouts of music at random, without much context, and also have the audacity to cut it when the song was starting to get good, biggest offenders are "Sympathy for the devil" and "Bohemian Rapsody"

-Cringey Humor: Killer App, anyone?

Will Smith was okay, as well as the rest of the cast, but they are unable to salvage this sinking ship.
Time to get those lifejackets, DC and WB, or you're gonna drown in your own shit!
