New Episodes On Fridays!

Oct 2, 2021

In 2016, Warner Bros released Suicide Squad, DC’s attempt to introduce the comic book team to the movie universe. This isn’t about that movie. Today we’ll be talking about “The” Suicide Squad currently available in theaters and on HBO Max. It’s almost the exact same premise: criminals get extorted into doing high-risk missions for the government. And yet, James Gunn manages to give us a completely different movie. So let’s get into it.
