Joker director was making comments about "woke" culture as well.

 

Notice how the left didn't have a meltdown like you alt-right guys clearly..........CLEARLY had over Brie Larson's comments.

 

Like I said.......this is just too easy.

Dude.......you're not going to convince anybody that "the left" is melting down over Joker as badly as you guys did over Brie Larson.

 

There's no comparison. The meltdown was huge back in February/March.

Are they? Most reviews I've seen criticize the film for being derivative and heavy handed.

Don't just link a 27 minute video and expect me to watch it to form your points for you.

 

I've also already watched it and I would have cited them, since they traditionally skewer politically correct backlash such was the case with Captain Marvel, as evidence that Joker's problems aren't really a result of woke leftists but the film's own problems. They call it the baby version of Taxi Driver. :D

I think the thing with film critics is that.........they've seen Martin Scorcese movies, and even lesser movies like Michael Douglas' 1993 movie Falling Down.

 

So, even though Joker is novel for what it does with a comic book property...............what did you think film critics were going to say?

 

"OMAGOSH, its as good as Taxi Driver!!" ????????????  That was never going to happen.

 

The Dark Knight is probably still the best comic book movie, in my eyes....................it still ain't Heat, it will NEVER come close to being Heat. One is still rooted in comic book expectations, and the other is real cinema.

Take a look at Ad Astra.

 

The pre-release hype started saying "This is Apocalypse Now in space" "This is a true space opera movie as good as Interstellar"

 

I bought into it.

 

And let me tell you.........that movie isn't as smart and as deep as it was advertised.  If you tell me that a movie is "like" fucking A-P-O-C-A-L-Y-P-S-E Now.........that is one hell of an expectation. Its a good movie, a solid movie. But they didn't do me a favor with comparing it to something like that.

We all walked onto this ferry, and somebody just checked underneath and found hundreds of explosive barrels of gasoline with a note.

 

 

.......and they did it on the other ferry as well.

 

Even Nolan couldn't figure out all the logistics. This is why comicbook movies have to be judged on a different set of rules and expectations.  Things MUST HAPPEN in a comic book movie because the main goal in those movies is successfully transferring the comic book character into a real-life character. The plot has to be "bend" around that, even if it doesn't make sense.

 

Whereas a movie like Heat never bends its plot to the characters. The fact that those heists and all of that planning look completely believable actually makes you scared that such stone-cold professional mofos can actually exist.
