The Joker movie made him an almost sympathetic character because rather than portraying him as a psychopath who killed just because, it showed his motivations. Same thing with Dracula in the Castlevania series. SotN gave him a motivation that made him sympathetic and just like the show, you could understand why he was doing what he was doing even if you couldn't cosign it. I think the show has been all the worse for not having him in it right now. I keep hoping he'll come back and just wreck everybody lol I was actually scared to go to the cinema when Joker dropped because I was afraid I'd get fucking shot by some white guy whose actual biggest problem was how far the nearest Burger King was. I was right, someone was shot at the theatre the day I chose not to go. I still went the next day LOL. After the movie I was scared too. It was a great movie, and it was scary how one man started a whole revolution in the city. It. Was. Surreal. Not many movies make me feel that way. And then the whole, "You wouldn't get it," scene happened and I was like, "Oh yeah. I forgot this is a movie Joker. Had to include some cringe, huh?" Anyway, the movie was great! 9/10! Here's the thing about what you said though, right? Look at Spider-Man (2002). It's an origin movie, sure, but try to remember how long they actually spent on his origin. 20 mins? 30 mins? The rest of the movie was fights with the Goblin and plots beyond the discovery of powers (which is great because I fucking love those movies. One day I'll talk about them). Joker (2020) was 2 hours of an origin. He did NOTHING as the Joker... because there were no distractions. No Batmen. The entire movie was Fleck establishing the basis of his future. What we know about the Joker now is exactly what makes the whole movie so significant. It's important because it's the only TRUE origin movie. Every second of the movie IS the origin. That's why it's so good. We know his motivations because they build in front of us, which is where Leto's Joker fails. Edited March 3, 2021 by Dayaan KingTubb 1 Quote Link to comment
