A woman has a family of jerks and so takes up with the local loon. This was boring depsite all that.
Birds Of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of one Harley Quinn) (2020)
Why is this flopping? There are fights, backstories, a breakup and lame baddies (Chris Messina and Ewan McGregor). Harley Quinn is dumped by the unseen Joker and decides to hang out with various women. Her violently insane criminality is shrugged off. Batman is unseen as Renee (Rosie Perez), Harley (Margot Robbie), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Cassandra Cain kick evil in the balls.
Harley is self-mythologising and faces negative responses and is imperiled. She no longer has the Joker's protection and people are out to get her. People have hollow despair and idiocies and self pitying drivel. Harley is an inherently troublesome nefarious menace. Did she get her fighting skills and Olympic level gymnastics skills before or after her phd?
Gotham is full of social abnormality and it is a time of reckoning. Harley is painted as a beleaguered victim of irrational hostility- she has unhinged allurement. This can be okay inbetween moments of infuriating exercises in cliche.
“Run piggy run.”
Legal Eagles (1986)
Robert Redford, Debra Winger and Daryl Hannah gurn in this terrible 'comedy'.
Deliver Us From Evil (2014)
Eric Bana v satan! This is a true story. A cop and a priest take on the possessed. The cop's annoying moppet annoys. This was silly.
“God didn't stop him, I did. With a baseball bat.”
A UK horror film in which chavs swear at each other. This was woefully inadequate.
