I finally relented and saw Suicide Squad. Despite going in with the lowest of expectations after Batman Vs Superman I was pleasantly surprised to see a competent film, much better than recent DC offerings. Unfortunately, Jared Leto’s Joker character is an annoyance that the film cannot get around.

‘The American Dream’ the idea that in America you can rise from the streets to be a success using only your hard work and intelligence has been the staple of many a good movie. Some of the greatest heroes of the silver screen have walked the path. In Nightcrawler a different person takes the journey.
