      Didn't see birds of prey because sexy HQ was the single redeeming quality of suicide squad and they took that one good thing and turned it into a feminist agenda. What's left? Might have been fine if they started with this, but in context hell no.

    • We All Laugh Down Here
      We All Laugh Down Here 7 months ago +1

      Not even gonna lie, Harley Quinn being marketted as a little more sexy/fan service film would have had me drooling all over it. I know the story is gonna be #girlpower, I know its gonna contain lame sexist male villians who, I know Harley Quin is gonna grow and evolve as a bad guy/girl who isn't evil or a villian. I know that. But I also know the story is gonna be small fish and non-canon in the larger DCU. So give me a reason to watch it. Let me see Margo in some tight little shorts scissor kicking dudes in the face. Make it FUN for me.
      Or not. I think its still a good film. Just not marketed towards my tastes and that's okay.

      I figured the primary reason for the Birds of Prey name change was due to alphabetical searches (especially critical with physical media, streaming and VOD where even short attention spans are truncated). As for "underperforming", I could have told the studio that prediction when the project was in development. Full disclosure my expertise/degree is in elementary education. Harley Quinn is popular but not on a Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman level. Is anyone REALLY shocked about Barr's decision concerning Roger Stone? This is not a shock in our state of reality. Heavens, China is testing a vaccine? Hmm, maybe they would like to "enlighten" certain parts of the U.S. ? Just in case we over-applaud China's medical advancement and intellect, the news of the death of Doctor Li from the virus he warned his government about before virus widely spread reminds us that China is well...still China.

    How was BOP a "girl power" movie? I watched it and it was just a movie with female leads lol. Just because there's a female cast, doesn't mean there's an agenda.

  • Comeclarity5555

    Birds of Prey likely flopped because Suicide Squad was dreadful. I turned it off after a half hour.

    People are freaking out about brooms? My 1-year-old does it all the time. I didn't even realize it was trending till my husband came home and said "oh my God! It's standing. I've been seeing that all day online." I was so confused.

    LOL Bloomberg is racist cuz now it's commercials talk about lowering the standards for minorities to give them equal opportunity which is insulting because he saying blacks aren't smart enough to measure up against any other race and then he's discriminatory against all the other races to give One race an upper an unfair advantage

    Birds of Prey is a spinoff of the Suicide Squad, which was a bad movie. I had no intention to go see a spinoff of an already bad movie. I'm really surprised Suicide Squad 2 is a thing but that has James Gunn so maybe.

  • Supposedly I am a philosopher

    Birds of pray was boring imho. Actor(s) does a very good job. Script sucked.

    Jeez. I think the broom trend was harmless bit of misinformation but not a bad discussion to have... but people are incredible aren't they? As far as the harley quin movie, my plan is to see it. I'm a woman who loves super hero films, so it's gonna happen, but when it makes sense. People using "box office money" numbers as a determination of overall success is just ridiculous in the age of the internet. While I try a little harder to see marvel films in theaters, theaters are expensive. There's a bunch of stuff to watch. Just be patient enough and you can just stream it at home when it makes sense. People are trippin'. 😂

  • Francis Siberini Films
    Francis Siberini Films 7 months ago

    I think its cause its tied to Suicide Squad. Or is it DC's structure is so fucked up. Anyway It's the same actress from the original suicide squad film playing the same character. And that film was woooooooah dog poop awful. So most people probably dont want to see any kind of continuation of that.

  • Elaine

    I think birds of prey failed because of the marketing. I’m not from the US and I didn’t even know if it was gonna be released in theaters here because it wasn’t being noticed enough

    I personally haven't gone to the theater to watch any of the recent DC movies (I think the last one I saw was Batman v Superman). I really haven't been impressed and frankly figure I can wait until they are available on streaming media. So me not going to see Birds of Prey is 100% about DC's disappointing track record. I also didn't go see Joker, though I suspect that one is going to be a stand out and I do plan on watching it now that I've heard so much about it.

  • CN
    CN 7 months ago

    I chose not to see Birds of Prey frankly because I thought Suicide Squad was a trainwreck. I associated BoP with Suicide Squad, therefore I didn't go see it. Now I may since some friends have said it's a fine movie. Who knows. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    I didn't go watch Birds of Prey because Suicide Squad was one of the only two movies during which I walked away out of boredom.

  • nightfairytitania
    nightfairytitania 7 months ago

    I didn't go see Birds Of Prey cause I'm a huge nerd and I knew this would be Harley Quinn the Movie and not actually about the written Birds of Prey. I am actually getting tired of Harley. I want a movie about the other amazing DC heroines.

    I never knew birds of prey was about Harley Quin. I thought it was about pterodactyls or something.

  • Liv Turner
    Liv Turner 7 months ago

    Honeatly I didn't see birds of prey because I couldn't really find a solid plot or general idea of what the movie was actually about from its ads. Whenever a comercial came on it gave me no information on what was going to happen in the movie. Plus the sudden emancipation from the joker was a little well sudden for me. I mean it was a toxic relationship but I didn't see any signs that she wanted to leave him in suicide squad so this was kind of unprecedented.

    First story about brooms; LIKE THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE? Goes viral but is nonsense? If YOU did the ice bucket "challenge" then YOU didn't pay any money to further research. The whole point of dumping ice was that you DON'T pay for expensive research. That means YOU didn't contribute meaningfully; YOU pretended that dumping ice on people somehow helped disease victims. GREAT JOB BUDDY! GREAT JOB!

  • KlusterFuk
    KlusterFuk 7 months ago

    You can't say it's because it is a comic book movie with a female lead Wonder Woman is a comic book movie with a very strong female lead and the movie was actually rather good I personally seen it a few times and enjoyed it every time.

    Remember the movie World War Z? Initially the zombie virus was to have started in China, but the country threatened boycotting the movie unless the film changed the origin of the virus, well, now there is a virus in the country and they are cracking down on their doctors saying there is a virus, then the doctor who announced the virus ends up passing away from it.

    I did not see Birds of Pray because Suicide Squad was bad. BoP has the same feel to it from the trailers. they threw tons of money at the project in hopes it would launch a franchise. while doing little to none of the work to build a universe the viewers care about.

  • Elithrae
    Elithrae 7 months ago

    Quick answer on Birds of Prey: my partner & my little brother work weekends, that simple. We're going to see it on one of their days off this week, and we're super stoked for it.

    Longer answer: They're both dudes and I'm pretty sure they're somehow more excited for it than I am. So that whole "woke" argument is bullshit. DC's recent track record of just destroying their characters in movies is why we haven't one of the DC superhero movies in theaters (save for Aquaman when it went to the discount theater) in years, because they've just been so bad. The fact that we want to see Birds speaks volumes considering how little we've wanted to go near DC films in recent years (love their TV shows tho).

    Honestly I am a girl. I love all Marvel Movies. I am a HUGE super hero movie gal. Honestly I have no and probably won’t see Birds of Prey in theaters because the previews didn’t draw me in like other movies have... I was honestly super excited for the movie when I heard Harley had her own movie!! I love her as a character! But the preview didn’t excite me like it should have even with the fact that I was excited originally for the movie.

    I can't speak of others but I have not seen Birds of Prey. Don't plan on seeing it because of the marketing/media surrounding the film. Plus the film looks nothing like anything from the orginal BoP source material.
