But the origin story isn't particularly compelling at all, not to mention that it's deliberately undermined as possibly being untrue.
Well we already covered your ignorance on point 1, so moving on I guess I must point out that I never even mentioned its quality as a comic. I said the Joker origin story (which makes up 40% part of the book and I think that's me being generous because I don't want to understate it and have my memory prove wrong) isn't particularly compelling. And it isn't. It doesn't really have to be. The eventual final event which finishes his transformation is deliberately a completely out of nowhere, dull, freak accident. And up to that it's just a standard "ordinary guy gets in a desperate out of hand criminal situation". It works well for the comic and has a point, but if anything I'd say it's deliberately typical, nothing I'd love to see become animated. I do love the book, and the rest of it's very compelling.That particular origin story has been established canon in every single Batman continuity other than the Nolanverse, and not to mention the Killing Joke is regarded as one of the best comic books in the DC universe. You're argument is invalid.
Engaging and superbly acted characters, an incredibly intriguing story, a thriller that unlike 95% of watered down Western output actually does not pull any punches, an amazing and not unearned/cheap/impossible twist?Old Boy - What the ****?
That was interesting. I can't say I wasn't sort of entertained but uh...I don't really understand why this film is a big deal. I guess the cinematography was really good but the plot was just bonkers. I don't really have any desire to watch that again. Can someone explain why this film is supposed to be amazing?
Welcome to this forum. I do not know how this forum feels about this movie but I can just about guarantee no one would ever just drop these comments as real criticism for a movie.I can hear the negatives that the pessimists on this forum will say: Too much 'N' word. too violent.
I'm really not familiar enough with this movie to find this as funny as I do.I would say that high schools should require students to watch this movie instead of reading Huckleberry Finn.
