I'm trying to think of a more stupid, idiotic looking movie. I thought up Megaforce, but no, Megaforce is The Godfather compared to this.

Gunn and Robbie are the only reasons I'll watch this. Looks funny, at least.

The new trailer looks decent. It might actually be a good DC movie which is something I didn't expect to say. The WB and DC really need to get their act together. It's amazing how much they've mismanaged the DCverse. The leaks from the Flash looked terrible.

I don't know, the latest trailer doesn't look very good. Of course the trailers for the last Suicide Squad looked really good and that movie was hot garbage.

I guess I'd be more inclined to see this if it were better explained whether it was a reboot or sequel to the last one. Seems like both, which is odd for a film that is 4-5 years old and exists in a cinematic universe, no matter how poorly established that universe is.

Did you see the first Suicide Squad? I'm curious which you think is better if you've seen both.
I did, and it was far better than this one. That's not to say it was really good itself. I liked aspects of it. I really liked Will Smith/Deadshot and Harley. Diablo was a total badass, as was Waller (in both actually). I hated Leto's Joker though. So awful. The story in the first one was better too. This time, they face off against a space starfish? Really?? I realize it might be a hip comic nerd thing that I don't know about and that's okay, but from my viewpoint it's still stupid.

Appreciate it. I really liked Will Smith in the first and Diablo was probably the only character I got invested in. I also couldn't stand Leto's Joker. Whenever he came on screen I wanted to leave the theater. The story was ridiculous in its own way but it had some decent performances.

I'm not sure when ill watch this one but I was curious how it would compare.
