~As someone who reads the comics elitist comic nerd commentary you didn't ask for incoming~
There were nerdgasm moments. The dance where they looked like the art cover of Mad Love--sexy
hinting at Harley's OG outfit--fuck yes.
Sticking to new 52 bullshit though? fuck you, DC. Fuck you.
Harley not being Deadpool? THANK YOU GODS OF COMICS.
They keep doing that.
Harley is a broken character. The point of her. she's tragic. she's not funny. she's supposed to make you sad. The heroes of DC don't even really hate her, they hate the Joker because of what he did to her.
He knew she was weak and lacked the mental fortitude needed to be a psychiatrist of Arkham and she was fresh out of school, so he gave her the textbook scenario of being "saved" and telling her what she wanted to hear and etc, all manipulating her into doing his bidding and being his sex pet.
The relationship ends up changing a little, but don't be too romantic people. They are sick, it's abusive and he's nearly killed her on a whim and laughed while doing more than once.
He thew her out a building, she broke every bone in her body, abandoned her to die and then sent a rose, saying hi. That's your OTP DC couple people. You would haaaaaaaaaate this guy if you knew him in the real world.
(psst, didn't happen in the movie, so ignore that rant if you want)
i digress on them.
the movie wasn't good. it wasn't terrible either. It was one of the better DC movies, which isn't saying much. It had fun moments.
It's not Guardians of the Galaxy or Deadpool levels of awesome, holy shit, I can't breathe, you just did that. no where near that, so don't see it, if you want that. see the aforementioned films.
The Joker was not needed. That should be a separate film. And follow Paul Dini's Mad Love
Amanda Waller. yes.
the villain was weak
There was no Slade Wilson. No Nightwing.
five out of ten maybe.
I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it.
but fuck you Scott Eastwood for being hot and NOT Deathstroke
I wanted Slade Wilson! He's blonde! Scott's blonde! Both are military characters! damn you DC for not having Deathstroke!
we need our Deathstroke v Deadpool fanboy wars!
