Suicide Squad has come and gone. Breaking August opening records, failing critically for the most part (although our Editor-in-Chief Matt was more level headed than most), and had so many editors in the editing room (according to rumors of multiple cuts from The Hollywood Reporter) the final product was a confusing mess.
But despite all of that, I thought Suicide Squad was fine. Not great, not the terrible monster critics made it out to be, but was ultimately a disappointment. Namely because the studio went through the trouble of making three licensed songs and didn’t use them until the end credits. So you can cram twenty songs into the film’s first ten minutes and can’t use any of your originals? See, that’s why I’m disappointed. Suicide Squad‘s ad campaign painted this Hot Topic picture of a film, and the end product carries none of that aesthetic.
Uh, Jared Leto’s Joker (with his best look, which, once again, the film couldn’t decide on) is in this Skrillex video. As a bonus, here are the other songs.
