    I find Enchantress harmless overall. She's terrible, but also there isn't much there to really complain about if that makes sense? Awful, placeholder villain with a funny dance, nothing to write home about. Every second Leto is on the screen in Suicide Squad is a special kind of bad imo.

    I thought her motivation made sense. She was an ancient, malevolent being who was offended by a modern world where the fear and awe for beings like her were things of the past. Her visuals were delightfully creepy, including her transformation of people into the Eyes of the Adversary. I really dug that old school horror vibe that she had.

    And, regarding the Enchantress. . . honestly, I think she's a good villain, buried under a bad plot that then got terribly edited into something as uninteresting as possible. But then, I still believe that the original plot of Suicide Squad was "Enchantress tries to escape control of Waller, is hunted by both the Squad to return her to control and the Joker who wants to steal control of her," without any actual 'fate of the world' elements at all.

    I really enjoyed Suicide Squad, I don't think it it as bad as everyone thinks.

    A.Spider-Man 2 though, i laugh when I see Rhyno said " I am a killeeerrr!!" Hahaha :D and also that final sequence, Rhyno is funny in the movie.

    Worst? Of the options presented, Rhino is the worst. He’s not even a character. Not really. Just a noisy, ugly effect to bookend a crap movie with.
    This is especially egregious given that they cast an incredible actor to play him ... for some reason.

    Enchantress is bad, no two ways about it, but at least she’s present in the movie she’s Villaining for.
    I remember her. Which is more than I can say for a lot of Suicide Squad.

    ASM2’s Goblin? Yeah, when he turns up at the end there he’s awful. Absolutely atrocious. But before that Dane DeHaan had managed to do a decent job of actually characterising that version of Harry. Could’ve been worse. I guess?

    Electro.
    I ... I actually kind of get Foxx’s Electro. In a more old school ‘90s-style comic book movie he would’ve been amazing! He was just a bit late to the party is all.

    Joker.
    Here’s the thing about Jared Leto’s Joker: I can’t comment on it.
    Or at least, I don’t feel comfortable commenting on it. The reason for that is because literally every other actor who played the role got to actually play the role. They had entire movies/episodes to introduce and develop their interpretations.
    Leto had - for tedious studio reasons entirely outside his control - like, 10 minutes.
    That’s it.

    Sorry, but I really don’t think that’s fair at all. So - at least until the snydercut - I’m still refraining from judgement.

    TASM 2's were FAR worse.
