    Hard to defend the movie in some ways. Necessary movie in other ways. Did not like the comments from people who have not seen Batman V Superman or Man of Steel.

    A VR ready PC costs under 1000 dollars. Easily.

    Also wait a month or so for the GTX 10xx line, they are optimized for VR.

    The first day Lucio Ball was out, a friend and I were playing and after a few rounds I look to my right to find him spawn in as Rhineheart. From the way it was decribed on the podcast, it sounded like a glitch that is done on purpose, but for us it was just a fluke. Neither one of us expected it, so we were both laughing to hard to really play.

    This is a formal petition to change Canada's national anthem to whatever the fuck Miles just sang. It's honestly way better.


    Also you really shouldn't use Rotten Tomatoes, it's incredibly unreliable. The percentage is only representative of how many critics scored the movie over 60/100, and every movie on the planet starts at 100 and then fluctuates over the next few months of the release. IMDB gives a cumulative score of 1-10 based on critic and audience reviews, and the score is accurate within a week. Just my two cents.

    I liked Harley Quinn's role in the Animated movie Assault on Arkham. She was part of the squad because of her knowledge of knowledge of Arkham. She actually had a reason to be there, unlike in Suicide Squad.

    Cabin in the Woods is an amazing movie, and I think going into a movie is a good idea but I think knowing at least a little bit of what you are going to see is better than going into it and then you hate the movie, because then you're not wasting money on a movie you don't like.

    Man, that VR sounds awesome. Really wish I could afford a new PC + Vive right now.


    Also, if two people had killed each other at the same time in, say, a CoD game; if you had seen the feed come up that 2 people killed each other, you would have immediately heard some 8 year old scream and then some old guy tell the kid to shut the fuck up. VR is awesome. It's all gonna be like that some day too though.

      @KOAO


      I grew up a console gamer. 30 FPS is fine with me, especially since textures at low are god awful. I'm past the PS2 era, there's nothing i cant stand more than blurry textures. If your textures are blurry, theres no point to anything else being pretty.

    Kerry, you need to attach a thin rope to the bike near the back of the frame(then attach to something that WILL NOT move) and portly secure the bike to the same spot you have. That mofo that keeps stealing your bike, will eat shit, and then take his or her photo from inside the house.

    I went into The Force Awakens knowing that if nothing else, it couldn't be worse than the prequels. I walked out calling it the best Star Wars movie aside from The Empire Strikes Back.


    As for Suicide Squad, I saw it with my family the other day. I went into it with exceedingly low expectations, but I wanted to give it a chance. It didn't take long for me to realize that, despite expecting it to be awful, I'd actually been giving it too much credit. Will Smith was the only watchable part of that dumpster fire. I left wanting my money back, and I didn't even pay for my ticket. Miles is right, Batman and Robin is a better movie than Suicide Squad, and that's not saying much.

    Suicide Squad is a dumb movie, but it was always going to be a dumb movie. So go into it with that expectation, and you'll have a good time

    So many people are shitting on the podcast because of their review of suicide squad. To be honest I trust their opinion more than a fan's opinion because they are in production and film and all that good stuff. And they know what to look for in a film and why it is a hit or not. I studied film as well and I have to say that I agree with them on this. Suicide squad could have been great all the way through, but editors and producers didn't think it should be and honestly made terrible mistakes. Production should have made it more rated R so they could let loose and really make it a great movie instead of something that only teenagers can watch. I feel like the concept is very similar to deadpool. Bad guys be good guys but in a bad way. Can't do that when you dumb it down for kids. Honestly the movie could have been better but like miles said there are some good points, just not for 2 hours. Don't waste your money. Just buy it instead.

    I will preface this long ramble with the remote statement, that, Yes - I did very much so enjoy Suicide Squad. However - I am a comic book fan with prior knowledge of the source material. There's a great video by NerdWriter about what was wrong with BvS. The DC Movieverse right now has a lot of 'moments' in their films (slow-mo, badass quips, VFX) - but not much in the way of cohesive storytelling. This 'moment barrage' was also a very big part of why people didn't like Interstellar. There was great acting, a ton of Green Screen, and a swelling score -- but people just weren't intellectually invested. Now - I will admit, that I am a sucker for 'moments' - and absolutely love those slow-motion gun tosses in Suicide Squad -- but taking a step back, I can realize that there isn't much there for general audiences to latch onto. The studio interference and whatever other setbacks the film went through are secondary now to what the studios need to do moving forward. 'Moments' aren't working - and so what we need is not more stunts, awesome actors, and powerful music; we need writers who know the characters, and who are given enough time and resources to make a script that actually does justice (No pun intended) to the stories they're based on.


    TL;DR

    I liked Suicide Squad - but the reasons I liked it were reasons everyone else hates them. Check out a video that explains them here: Batman v Superman: The Fundamental Flaw

    Burnie and Gavin are in Japan so Kerry and Miles can be on the podcast and talk about how they want to go to Japan.


    I think what they're gonna try to do with DC movies that don't meet their expectations is they're gonna release the shitty edit for theaters and put the good edit on Blu-Ray so people have to spend roughly $38 on each movie.

    Possible Spoilers: Joker was abusive towards Harley in the movie, but most of the scenes cut or shortened in editing. Read the novelization of the movie. In my opinion, in the movie it wasn't really an infatuation with Harley it was more of "That's mine. She belongs to me, only I can do what I want with her." Joker always has viewed her as a possession, a tool.

    I thought the marketing for Suicide Squad was TERRIBLE . The trailers, the graphic design of the posters.... Compared to the SUPERB marketing for Deadpool, especially.

    I don't understand why Suicide Squad is getting so much shit. I saw it and overall I thought; Good acting and a fun movie. However, I had some problems, especially with plot and editing. Whoever edited Suicide Squad should never be offered a job again. The last problem I had was Killer Croc. He was way to skinny to be this big brooding character he is portrayed as. Really cool cameos by Batman and Flash as well

    My thoughts on Suicide Squad, Wasn't great but there was a lot of problems during production and a lot of the Joker scenes they could have made him better were cut. And they will be expanding on these characters in the Ben Affleck' s Batman film. But hopefully when they do make the second one (which they will because it still made a sh*t ton of money) they will improve on the characters and have the time to do it properly and possibly make it better.
