Reel Film Nerds

Episode #159: Birds of Prey

February 12, 2020

Welcome to our anniversary week!  This Friday Reel Film Nerds podcast turns 2 years old, wow!  Don’t fret we are doing our annual Poindexter Awards but not until next week.  Today we discuss DC’s latest film Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn or as it’s been renamed this week Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.  Bonus topics today include Ewan McGregor, Mudshark, and a whole lot of Oscars talk.

Birds of Prey is an ok film.  The story has been done time and time again.  It is one of the biggest faults with this movie and you know how much the story means to your two hosts.  The color palette, acting especially by Margot Robbie, and cinematography are great.  The action really took Matt by surprise.  The fight scenes were shot wide allowing the actors to show off their moves.  It was very reminiscent of the John Wick series of films.  Is this a must see movie in the theaters, nope.  Is it worth a watch down the road, sure. It is an entertaining film that does have several redeeming qualities but in the end it was a let down, at least to Mike.  Speaking of Mike Talent he awards the film 2 out of 5 Reels. Matt the way too nice guy that he always is, rates this movie a smidge higher. He gives DC’s latest film 3 out of 5 Reels.

Next week the guys plan on getting to the annual RFN Poindexter Awards!  If things get really busy (for Mike of course) or there is an early delivery for one of your hosts they might be pushed back a bit.  Check your favorite podcatching app next week to find out.
