“Lonely, lonely, lonely…” — Robert Plant wailing in a famous Led Zeppelin song. It’s also how week #6 of 2020 (2/6-2/9/2020) at the movie theater works with only one lonely wide release movie. We last encountered this on week #1 of 2020, too with The Grudge being the only wide release that week.
This week we get one of a couple dozen movies (see: 24+ movies to watch in 2020 to make buying an Unlimited Pass worthwhile) I’m eagerly looking to see at the theater.
So, what did I think?
Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) ⭐️⭐️½
Unfortunately, we’re not recommending this movie. I am considering watching it one more time and maybe (?) I’ll change my mind. It was one of those movies that is on the edge of recommend or not. As much as I want to say, “yes, go see it now!” I don’t feel that way after seeing it on opening night Thursday.
But good news for Harley Quinn fans, because I do have a fantastic recommendation.
A movie ticket to Birds of Prey is going to cost you an average of $12 USD. Here’s a much, much, much better idea: buy a subscription to DC Universe ($7.99/month) and watch Harley Quinn adult animated TV series.
There are 11 episodes of Harley Quinn available as of this writing. Each episode is 22 minutes, which means for $7.99 USD you can binge watch all 11 episodes available (22 x 11 = 242 minutes / 60 minutes = 4+ hours!)
Four hours of entertaining, creative adult animated stories vs. 109 minutes (1 hr, 49 minutes) of a below average (in our opinion) live action movie featuring Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie.
Want to see what else we recommend NOW PLAYING at the theater?
Here are other movies we’ve seen at the theaters recently and liked (maybe they are available in your area still) that are recommended. Any movie rated at least 3-stars is recommended. You should read any 3-star review (click the title), because sometimes we do qualify those recommendations, meaning we were entertained, but it doesn’t mean that the film was that good.
4-star movies are highly recommended and films rated as 4 1/2 or 5 stars are must see.
