What about 2?

3 being written by Miller definitely makes me interested. His stuff hits a balance of grim-dark and so ridiculous I can't actually be bothered by the bad things is a balance few others pull off.

Frank Miller co-wrote Robocop 2, as well.

He wasn't entirely pleased with the end result and created a comic based on his original script some years back.

I burned out on writing movie reviews on a daily basis on my blog, and I haven't actually sat down and put my thoughts about a film since...well, June, I guess. But let me recommend you something:

You. Yes, you. You right there. Sitting in that chair. Stop picking your nose and go see this movie. See it right now. Leave work, forget your kids, and go watch it. It is spectacular, cringe-inducing, and hilarious. It deserves your monies. All of them, fool.

If Ack says it is good, then it must be so. *checks movie listings*

Oh, also:

Had me at the poster. However, Samara + Horror is always a win for me. Definitely checking this out.

How I wish Netflix would release The Babysitter on Blu-ray.

Just got back. This post is Michi approved.

Ack spoke the truth. This was the bloodiest, most amusing dark comedy I've seen in a long while. Plus, all the gothic-y architecture and decorations just made it plain pretty to look at (even with all the blood.)

A+

Would watch again.

I have allergies from mindless blockbusters, but I gathered my courage and watched Suicide Squad. Its... not that bad...
Sure its your average(or better) dumb-dumb action movie which excites the simpler minds but I wouldn't go as far to say that it was unwatchable. I really can see how teenagers a decade from now will have fond memories of this one.

My best guess it was all about managing expectations. People were probably expecting something on the level of "The Dark Knight". I was expecting the cheesiest worst quickly made movie in the past century.

Was the character of Harley Quinn present in any other Batman movie/shows?

Harley Quinn was created for an episode of Batman: The Animated Series. Her reception was so good that she was made a regular character on the show (as Joker's number one henchwoman and abusive relationship) and then got brought into the comics to serve the same role. She shows up in the Arkham games as well.
