Joker is confusing movie for me. I feel like it tries to be a drama with some social commentary, but it still ties into that whole Batman, superhero thing. There are tons of opinions that love or hate this movie going around the internet and I really wish I read none of them because they definitely impacted my opinion of this movie. If you have a chance to watch this movie without any prior information, I advise you to do so.

How the hell did Frank Miller get here? He is one of the most legendary writers in the comic book industry and yet he can’t seem to write decent dialogue. It sound super fake and antiquated, like someone is trying to imitate a 1930’s gangster. It’s tough to sit through. I got through the first two issues all right, but that last issue was painful.

I was talking to one of coworkers the other day and the topic of Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut came up. I had never heard of this thing before, but apparently, there are two versions of Superman II, with Richard Donner’s version being the generally accepted better one. After watching this new version, I agree that it is better, but I don’t think it’s a masterpiece that reaches the level of the first Donner Superman movie.

Batman: Hush was surprisingly good considering how crappy the past few DC Comics animated movies have been in my opinion. Most amazingly is how the movie offers something new-ish for people already familiar with the comic book.
