Don’t get me wrong, I really want to like this movie. If it was just called Clownface Killer I think I’d get behind it 100%. Since it is instead called Joker and yet it seems to have zero ties to the comic other than a skeletal association to The Killing Joke…well, I just don’t care. I may be in the minority on this one and honestly I’ll end up seeing it because it’s a “comic” film; but at this time I just don’t get the hype.

Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

Joker is due out on October 4th

BAD IDEA BEGINS IN 2021!

If there's one thing COVID did it was screw up the comic industry for a time being not to mention the complete failure of Diamond to do a damn thing about it. Things seems to be getting back on track and I am very happy to see that BAD IDEA has not suffered from it. I...

The Craft: Legacy join the coven and watch the new trailer!

The Craft is a movie that still holds up today. Before all the teeny-bop and sparkling vampires it was cool to be a brooding teenage magic user. Well it has garnered enough cult love over the years to deem this sequel necessary. Will it hold up to the original film?...
