    In Fight Club's case, the film is expressly driven by Edward Norton's character's narration (he is in every scene), and because he is equally in the dark regarding the big reveal, it justifies both...

    The more I think about it, the more this seems like a dumber comic-book version of Fight Club that spends far too much time on watching Tyler Durden do stupid shit just because, you know, Batman!,...

    In terms of how much I actually liked it? Middle. In terms of appreciation for at least trying something outside of the norm, upper tier. I'm happier to have watched this than to have watched, say...

    More ambitious but more self-conscious about it. Much more interesting to discuss in terms of its motivations, (attempts at) meaning etc. than literally anything the MCU has produced.

    55/100

    Mental illness can be scary to an outsider, and that is the case here, with a few isolated scenes of creepy fear (sitting in Beetz' apartment, for example) and tense moments of calm before...

    I'm seeing this today in after I see Blood Simple for the first time on the big screen. The only reason I want to see Joker is how divisive it is. Then I get to tell half of them that they are wrong....

    Somewhat unrelated, but this reminded me of someone online (Letterboxd I think) saying that Joker is kind a sad reflection of where mainstream movies have ended up - this exact same movie about...

    1. Batman Returns
    2. Batman (1989)
    3. The Dark Knight Rises

    Everything else is below 60 and not worth talking about. (Haven't seen Joker or the animated movies or B vs. S)

    I'm not arguing semantics. I'm arguing what I actually said. Because you misrepresented my opinion.

    History is littered with remakes. They are a neutral phenomenon. Especially since I don't have to watch them.

    Um, he's saying all Scorsese films are the same. Unless Scorsese has made just two films, I don't know what you're getting at.
