"I’m the one they should be scared of. Boo! Not you! Not Mister J! Because I’m Harley freaking Quinn!"⠀
I'm back with another inspired look. It's been so long since I've done one of these and I waited a bit to pull out my inner-Quinn. Honestly, I never thought I would identify with Harley Quinn. As far as DC females go, Raven, definitely; Wonder Woman, obviously; Poison Ivy, yes; and even Catwoman. But after going to see Birds of Prey, I really started to appreciate who Harley Quinn is. And I love her without 'Mista J' (don't get me wrong - I do looove me some Jared Leto Joker). But the overall message that came with this kick-ass, funny, comic book movie was a good one. I think of the song 'You Don't Own Me' on the Suicide Squad soundtrack and think it should be the theme of this movie.⠀
It was fun to see Harley crawl out from under Joker's shadow. In Suicide Squad, she really is hung up on their "relationship". But she grows up in this movie and becomes her own person. She is completely capable on her own, but she is also real. She makes mistakes, she gets beat down, she gets back up. I loved the introduction to the other characters, as well. Black Canary (yaaaas!), Huntress, Cassandra Cain, and even Renee Montoya. And guys, like a crazy Star Wars fan, I can not close this without a big hats-off to Ewan McGregor as Roman Sionis. OMG...⠀
Go see the movie if you haven't. It is definitely a fun comic book romp through the mind of Ms. Quinn!
