    ....dude protestors rally around mass murderers and terrorists all the time. From Michael Collins, to Che Guevara to Bin Laden...to everyone in between...Why would identifying with the Joker be strange? Except that he's fictional...Certainly Fleck has a lower bodycount than Che did.

    Any asshole in a black mask with that shitty antifa banner, is defacto praising mass murdering scum and marching in their names while espousing a doctrine of genocide, repression, chaos and rape. There's nothing unique about this.

    It's all hilarious really because the Joker says in his own words he does not give a fuck about what the protests are about, he only cares to cause some havoc because he has lost it in the end.

    Yeah, who knew this would have happened, but who also knew this wouldn't have been your ordinary Joker. This Joker was like a guy who was wronged, rather than a true villain doing it for the lulz, lol. Why I say, he is more like a Robinhood than a criminal to the people.

    Funny that the people from well off places that are well fed and well paid see the Joker as the antagonist.

    Yeah I saw that picture and I'm trying to eat breakfast over here, come on.

    Also don't love that interview with phillips talking about how arthur's only killing people who wronged him and arthur has a code.

    :jesuschrist

    I liked that scene with his neighbor because it snaps you out of arthur's point of view where he's just troubled and awkward and trying to be nice and everybody else is being mean to him and shows this other pov where he's actually a scary weird guy who just walked into a single mother's apartment and sat down like he belonged there. If he murders a talk show host for making a joke about him then he could also murder real zazie for not acting like imaginary zazie. The man's off his meds.

    Yeah I don't like the idea of Joker having a code at all..

    Didnt he randomly kill one of his doctors?

    Highest grossing r rated movie ever now, and sounds like it should pass a billion too.

    But I don't like reading BO articles because they keep reminding me that aquaman is basically dc's most successful movie and urgh

    Not to start a dc vs Marvel thing. But this is DC lane. Potentially running this pocket for awhile if they stop trying to emulate marvel and instead pump out original content. Say what you want about Joker it is a a movie that sticks with you. Vs the popcorn flicks you enjoy for a moment but never care to revisit or think about.

    Marvel in particular is about to drop the ball because they are going to push out their token rejects. Captain marvel let’s see how she stands with no endgame to hype her up, then they going to do a Jane foster movie. Clearly you see their direction. About to be trash.

    So what would you rather see more originals movies like this or predictable popcorn flicks?

    Yeah I said that about a week ago. DC needs to keep doing what Marvel won't do. It may not always hit..but when it does..it'll hit big .

    I'm a marvelhead but objectively speaking, at this point it feels like their movies is being put together on an assembly line . I hope they try new ideas soon because they are doing themselves a disservice by only doing what has proven to work.

    I think marvel's changing up the drapery. You know, women superheroes, black panther, now shangchi. They'll probably try some gay characters soon too. Assembly line movies, but where they're innovating is with lesser repped people and identities and stuff.

    They want to build characters and IP more than they want to do something like Joker. They're more focused on their IP and characters than they are filmmaking. Could be smart.

    I guess you're right. DC hasn't proven that they can reach this pinnacle with a non-batman property. While Marvel is turning no name characters into pop culture stars.

    I guess my worries are..we know what to expect when going to see a marvel movie..we watch anyway because it's still fun. But are they risking the formula getting old?

    Winter Soldier is probably the last film where they actually tried to make a movie that just happened to be comic book inspired. And that one is considered probably their top 3 best by most. I think it being different from the usual films has something to do with that.

    Anyone has the "You wouldn't get it" reaction image? With the text written on it, preferably.

    Hard to imagine what kind of box it could have gotten in China.

    But of course, there'd be no way the government would allow it to pass without some sort of restriction.

    When she smiled at him stalking her, I figured she was probably fake. When he showed up and made out with her, I knew it was all in his head

    My immediate thought was "doesn't she have a daughter?" and that just destroyed his whole facade
