I got out of Jason Bourne about 20-30 mins ago. This one's a completely different animal from the others. The pacing seems a touch slower, but I wouldn't call that a bad thing. I had been scratching my head over why they didn't use the normal title formula, The Bourne _____, since the title was announced after seeing it I have an idea. Nothing would have fit.

I got out of Suicide Squad about an hour ago. I don't know what movie the critics saw because it clearly wasn't this one.

I enjoyed Suicide Squad. It certainly had problems, a poorly developed threat that relied too much on CGI, some of the dialog was painful, and everyone not named Deadshot or Harley was poorly developed, but I enjoyed it. It was certainly the Deadshot and Harley show, with everyone else along for the ride.

I liked the Joker and that the movie wasn't specifically about him and Batman. I liked Margot Robbie as Harley more than I thought I would, but I still think she was badly cast.

Finally saw Batman V Superman.  Pretty good movie.  Though I wonder if there was anything more to those dreams/hallucinations that Batman was having.  At the least, I assume the quick scene with the Flash talking to Batman actually happened rather than being a dream, since Batman wouldn't have known about The Flash existing to have that dream.

Yeah, I think that sequence has generally been accepted as 'what might be.'

I got out of Doctor Strange about a half an hour ago. Forget everything you think you know about the MCU.

I got out of Assassin's Creed almost an hour ago... Going in I knew the basics, but I still thought it was interesting. For anybody, like me, who hasn't played the games I don't think they're required before you go in.

I got out of Monster Trucks about 40 mins ago (I was talked into it). The concept may seem silly, but it works.

I take it that means it sucks?

Anybody watching the new 24? Or APB?

So far I like both.  Although I get the feeling APB won't last very long, what with FOX's habit of canning shows.  And Heath on TWD is probably dead, his "hair game" will be missed.
