Nothing better for me than waking up on a semi-chilly fall morning. My house cools down to a nice 68 in October. Let’s just get into things that I find interesting.
Martin Scorsese made comments about Marvel (Superhero) movies not being cinema. James Gunn took to Twitter to respond to him. Alright Marty – then what about Star Wars? Or Avatar? Just because they’re sci-fi doesn’t mean they don’t belong in cinema. What next? Not a fan of a Blade Runner 😄Below is James Gunn’s response.
Headed to see Joker this morning. I’ve waited for this film for quite a while. I’m loving how they’re mixing in comics and making it kind of a psychological thriller.
Todd Phillips said that his inspiration of the film wasn’t the Batman films but the classic ‘Killing Joke’ comic book. One of the most iconic Batman comics that was ever done.
A lot of very good source material there. But perhaps what’s best is even with that comic-book you’re left wondering – are we getting the real story?
After I’ve seen it I’ll post on Sunday about my full thoughts of the movie as a lot of people are calling it ‘The best DC movie to date’. We’ll see. I’ll leave you with one of the scenes from the ‘Killing Joke’ animated where the Joker is discussing how Batman got the way that he is. Bruce/Batman tells him, “I’ve heard it all before and it wasn’t funny the first time.” Referencing the death of his parents and that he can’t see the comedy in everything like the Joker. Also relevant is the Joker’s comment in saying ,”We’re all one bad day away from madness.”
Just came across this gem that Josh Brolin posted on his Instagram about ‘Joker’
