Show Notes

Find out why #Joker can't work as a stand alone film in this movie review.

They’re saying that Todd Phillip’s Joker, is not a Batman movie and a lot more people are saying not a comic book movie, but maybe it’s just redefining what a comic book movie needs to be?

Let’s face it, good guys are boring, the most compelling element of nearly every film is the antagonist, and the Joker is one of the greatest villains of all time. The clown shoes seem get harder to fill with every iteration though. Even casting an actor as credible and delightfully unpredictable as Joaquin Phoenix had lots of people—including me, with the foul stench of Jared Leto’s hideous portrayal still steaming from the turd that was Suicide Squad wafting in front of my face—questioning whether it was necessary. It could be because Joker is really good.
