Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey

Review by James McCleary The past three years have been an exceptional feat for DC Films in terms of successfully recovering from their disastrous attempts to imitate the Marvel formula, the culmination of which took the form of the critical and commercial monstrosity formerly known as Justice League.

His visceral physical outputContinue reading “Honey Boy”
