First of all, pot calling the kettle black. If DC fans are “pathetic” for supporting a movie when it wins an award then so are you for being so rude like this. Also, it did get nominated for an award? And it won that award, no matter what award it was, so that means it will forever be known as “Academy Award winning film ‘Suicide Squad’” if that makes you angry, then you have to get over it pretty quickly.
Second, no one is saying that the Academy Award winning film ‘Suicide Squad’ is now the best movie ever because it won this Oscar. I’ll be the first to say that Suicide Squad is not a good movie, it’s poorly edited and the storyline is terrible. No one is saying that it is now the best movie ever. No one.
Third, Suicide Squad did something truly new. Say what you want about the movie but what Suicide Squad got more than right was the hair and makeup. You can hate on the new Joker and Harley looks all you want but it has become a part of pop culture. It’s iconic now. But even if you don’t like them, look at what they did with Killer Croc which is 95% practical effects and took them 8 HOURS every single day. He looks incredible. El Diablo took them, I believe, 7 hours every day. He looks incredible. Joker took 6 hours, Harley took 3. I’m not sure how long Enchantress took but pedant, that hair and makeup team deserved this Oscar.
I understand I was being petty with my celebration of them winning this award, but there was truly no reason for you to respond like this. The DCEU has had it’s fair share of weakness and dips, but let us have this ONE positive. However, if you (not you specifically but everyone who hates on the DCEU) are going to harp on them so much when they do wrong, then you have to at least give them credit when they do it right. That’s just fair.
Please none of my people go hate on this person. I take it as a moment of weakness and I am not offended, and I hope they are not offended by my response either.
