My bread and butter through December. Think this is really going to turn out well.

This all feels too on the nose *HONK HONK*

From the casting, to the influences it's been flapping up and down on it's dickie, I can only feel like I've seen it already.

Hide those cards Mr. Old-School-Hangover, Jokers should be wild.










yet I'd gladly eat those words like a peach for hours.

If one has even a passing interest in superhero films and like, other films, I'm not sure how you wouldn't at least be curiously excited about this.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I'd be more excited if someone other than Todd Phillips was directing.

Also hi mod!

Apparently this is a heavy Trump allegory with Thomas Wayne serving as a metaphor for the president. He's the mayor which incites protests and riots from the disenfranchised. Joaquin's Joker becomes an icon and mascot for the protests as he rallies against Wayne which leads him to cross paths with De Niro who must be some Alex Jones type media personality.

I'm fed up with all this Trump allegory bullshit in film and TV at the moment. What's the point? There's literally no subtext with Trump, so what's the point in rehashing it all when all everyone really wants is some escapism?

Quasi-related, perhaps the best metaphor for Trump and his election I've seen.
Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?
