Watched Birds of Prey (2020)

The best way to describe this is as a great example of a popcorn film. A bucket of popcorn, a few beers, and your set for a fun two hours. It delivers a cacophony of fast talking madness, hitched to a rollercoaster of ultra-violence, that revels in all kinds of neon coloured visual mayhem. All of the main characters are women, and all of the talent behind the scenes is too. If you wanted to be a tight arse you could say that all of these characters are portrayed as psychologically damaged in some way, but no more than any other comic book antihero. It does celebrate a kind of escape from the oppression of men that some men might be uncomfortable with, and logically try to dismiss, but it’s not a film that’s going to take up less space for anyone.
