DC Comics’ latest movie is Suicide Squad. The new Warner Bros film is about a group of villains recruited by a secret government agency to fight even worst villains. The movie has been getting horrible reviews, but I actually enjoyed Suicide Squad. There was plenty of action and some light humor. And even though most of the main characters are bad guys, I found myself rooting for some of them. I like the film enough to add it to my movie library when it comes out on Blu-ray. Suicide Squad is playing now in theaters nationwide.
Netflix has a new series out. It’s called the Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. We’ve only seen one episode so far. In the show, Mr. Peabody and Sherman interview people from our past. It’s essentially an educational show mixed in with a lot of gags. Speaking of interviews, DreamWorks Animation sent us a kit (mugs, fake microphone, interview cards) to conduct our own interview. Check out the funny video below. It’s Harley Quinn interviewing Zombie Batman. I’m biased, but I think it’s cute.
If you’re a regular reader of my dad blog, then you know the kids and I love Halloween. In my opinion, Halloween should be a national holiday. We love decorating and dressing up for Halloween. Last year, my kids dressed up as Flash, Deathstroke, Apple White, and a serial killer. That’s right, my youngest daughter wanted to be a serial killer. I hope that’s not a sign of things to come. For the next Halloween, she’s going to dress up as Harley Quinn. If you don’t know, Harley Quinn is the Joker’s sidekick. Like the Joker, Harley Quinn is a prankster and has a wicked sense of humor. Kinda of like my youngest daughter.
