    Guess I’ll dissent. I’m underwhelmed. The VFX look a little too digital and same-y as any other modern action movie (even relying on the same tired orange/blue color correction).

    I liked it quite a bit, especially relative to the increasingly cosmic-focused Marvel stuff that is being churned out lately. The more grounded action was a welcome change, and the early set pieces...

    I was referring more to the fact that the 70s Joker (Phoenix) would exist as an iconic figure in the present-day of The Batman, and therefore, it wouldn’t be strange for modern gangs to be paying...

    I’m with ETM. I’m surprised this movie could inspire such a strong negative reaction. It’s too ‘blah’ for that. Admittedly, it is getting way too much credit generally for clearing Netflix’s low...

    It’s funny - I would’ve really agreed with this in 2012. Turns out that the film may have actually underplayed the prevelance of grifters like Jude Law’s character and the conspiracy theory...
