Recommended Posts

Jake...do you REALLY care that much about this movie, or have Twitter entertainment feeds taken over your soul and will?  😮

I'm surprised he's posting about it so much because the movie has scenes mocking Donald Trump.

It's basically designed to be "The movie that Warner/DC could put in the October slot that 'Venom' had last year for Sony/Marvel", and seems to be scripted accordingly:  Another corporate-icon villain origin where--so that we won't hate him, you see--the bad guy turned out to be a poor shlub who didn't really start out as a bad guy, until he was forced to fight someone EVEN WORSE!!  😱

Y'know, like in Hannibal Rising, when Hannibal Lechter turned out to be just a poor average downtrodden lil' guy who liked samurai masks, until he had to fight evil bad guys to protect the first girl who liked him.  (Yes, also doing the same pseudo-"Taxi Driver" Travis-loves-Iris shtick they pretty much all do.)  And be glad that Disney buying Fox spared us a movie about what a misunderstood guy Victor Von Doom was, before they started working on their own movie about the mean countess who stole poor Cruella DeVille's beloved dogs.

Or when young Norman Bates had to stand up to that nasty guy his mother was having the affair with...

I'm just surprised they didn't do a whole film on Buffalo Bill's origin story. :lol:

After the Joker does well, I guess we can expect a slew of "bad guy origin" films coming soon !

Isn't it fascinating that the villain movies seem to be more dramatic and have more substance than the hero films ?

The heroes get super powers and "use them for good". But, something very serious and tragic has to happen to drive a person to become a super villain. And we want to know what that event could be. That  has the makings of an interesting story.

just noticed awhile ago the mt summit of all entertainment awards  goldderby.com-(& the Oscars are really it for them!) They have *Hanks as a likely supporting turn in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood?  To topBilled,etc  Do you know about any of this?

 

I'm not predicting this incredibally early, but if thats the case it moves J. Phoenix up the Best Actor ladder?

 

still think his tragic older bro was better though

 

& to other Oscar pundits, oddsmakers, handicappers please check out what you can find, that is very strange al of a sudden & it's trailer has *Tom in just about every frame

 

He is so taken for granted as an actor, he wasn't officially up for his 5th AMPAS Award since 2000's CastAway?

 

Capt Phillips is where his peers really dropped the ball

Problem is, we already KNOW the Joker's origin, when Jack Nicholson fell into the chemicals.  And that was a lot more believable (since it came from the actual comics), than suggesting that he was poor Travis Bickle, hoping the rain would come and wash away the scum of the city.

Villain origins want us to hate the villain, but, y'know, not too much, or we wouldn't pay to see the movie.

Looks more like a killer clown than the original Joker.  Is he to compete with the "It" sequel? :wacko:

Jack Nicholson in the 1989 "Batman" is my favorite.

Jack's good, but by the end of the movie, it's hard to tell when he's just playing Jack.

Still, only he, Cesar Romero and Mark Hamill captured the theatrical showoff whose practical jokes just happened to be crimes--If Hamill could read Trump's tweets and make them sound like the Joker's, he's got the character nailed down:  

(You could have Josh Brolin reading the tweets as Thanos, but, y'know, it...just wouldn't be the same.)

:o  :lol:  :P 

Seems it don't take much to get some people to believe anything, does it?  ;)  Like those dudes who argue the "Twilight" movies aren't that good because----

"REAL vampires don't do that kind of stuff...".     :rolleyes:

Well I don't think the "Twilight" movies are all that good either, but it has nothing to do with how "real" vampires behave.  :huh:  :rolleyes:

Cesar Romero was great in the Batman TV series but please leave politics to the Off Topics forum. There's enough threads there to post that.
