Suicide Squad – The Electric Shadows Podcast

Suicide-Squad---Margot-Robbie,-mallet

Episode 11 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, in which Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis tackle Suicide Squad, ponder the future of DC movies, realise they have spent around 15 hours this year watching and talking about DC movies, and Rob Daniel wonders why films now can’t be more like Crocodile Dundee II. Rob Wallis also gets warm and fuzzy with Finding Dory and Rob Daniel is mightily impressed with chilled out entertainer David Brent in Life on the Road.

More of Rob Wallis’ musing on movies can be found at his site Of All The Film Sites. Check it out (after listening to the podcast)…

The lowdown: Matthew McConaughey arguably completes his McConaughaissance with Dallas Buyers Club. As Ron Woodroof, the real life hard living, homophobic blue collar guy diagnosed with HIV in 1985 and subsequently challenged pharmaceutical laws, the actor electrifies.
