With the Oscars eating up all the media space this weekend, DC’s Birds of Prey movie has a clear path to victory — and honestly, as counterprogramming goes it’s not the worst idea. (Is Margot Robbie presenting on Sunday night?)
But it’s not the only game in town …
The Assistant: Harvey Weinstein, this is your life.
Birds of Prey, and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn: DC puts Suicide Squad behind it.
Citizen K: Never get on Putin’s bad side.
Come to Daddy: Elijah Wood makes twisty thriller fun.
The Traitor: The Irishman, but slower and boring.
I also reviewed Netflix’ Locke & Key, which reshapes the comics into something more YA-friendly while preserving their creepy spirit. So that’s good.
