Watched one called "The Hunt" yesterday. Pretty dark and way better than I expected it to be. Mads Mikkelsen is an amazingly talented actor.

I watched a dark one the other day as well..."Marshland", Spanish with English subs. It's set just after the fall of Franco in Spain, and is about a serial killer on the loose in the marshes. It's very "True Detectivish", totally absorbing...

Finally got around to watching The Big Short.  I heard lots of good things about this one, and it was still better than I expected.

Hey @PattyCakez watch Margot in the bath tub and see if you can see the shocking editing mistake. If you can take your eyes off her...

Watched Suicide Squad today and thought it was great, best movie in the genre since Guardians. The critics have screwed the pooch on this one, it's fun!

After days of deliberation, I went and saw Suicide Squad...

Like Mega said, it's fun but far from being a favourite of mine... I enjoy the MCU too much.

Comic book wise I have always been DC over Marvel, but I can't deny that Marvel have a much more developed cinematic universe. I find that with the Marvel films they are either great (Iron Man, Winter Soldier, first Avengers movie) or utter rubbish ( Iron Man 3,  Avengers 2, Thor 2).

DC movies (so far) I think are trying to capture something which translates well in comic book form, but for the cinema just seems like a lofty vision which has just missed the mark due to poor scripting or editing.
