Our review of Suicide Squad starring Will SmithMargot Robbie and Viola Davis. Synopsis: Figuring they’re all expendable, Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical Joker (Jared Leto) launches an evil agenda of his own.

We also talk with long time friend of the show and well known sci-fi actor Robin Dunne. Robin is best known for his role as Will Zimmerman in four seasons of the Syfy series Sanctuary opposite Amanda Tapping. Other television credits include leading and guest starring roles in shows such as Defiance for Syfy, CSI Miami for CBS, Code Breakers for ESPN, and Dawson’s Creek for WB. He also stars in the indie feature Torment opposite Katharine Isabelle. Dunne has starting spending more time behind the camera and most recently directed his first feature film, ARCHIE, in which he also stars. Robin made his annual appearance to chat with us about his latest projects, including his role on the web series Inhuman Condition as well as the film he’s currently directing, Welcome to Nowhere. We also talk hospital visits, onset weddings and naked skydiving… yes naked skydiving. When Robin joins us it’s always an adventure.

It was a great show!

Mr. Green

Host/Producer at Geek Hard
Mr. Green LOVES television. Actually quit Beavers as a child because he couldn't watch re-runs of Rat Patrol. The love didn't stop there, soon he discovered Tom Baker's Doctor Who... the rest, as they say, is history. When he isn't doing the radio version of Geek Hard each Friday @ 7pm on Reality Radio 101 or watching hours of TV, he tries in vain to sleep as much as possible.
