I have only one thing to say: the Joker’s origins were meant to be ambiguous… 😉 Chat and comment on the forum
Ms Thrifty shares: It’s quite a long film but rewards patience. I know some of the facts were changed but I suppose there were limits to the liberties which could be taken as both the main characters are real people; this might explain the ending, refreshingly muted by Hollywood standards.

Hot off the first preview, chrivic reports: There is no doubt that it is all very well done, written/acted etc. I thought it could have been a little shorter but then I’ve been really tired today after a late night last night. It gets a healthy 7/10 from me but on balance I prefer Saturday[…]

So an Irishman, an Englishman, a Scotsman, a Jew, Gordon Brown, Bono and the Pope walk into a pub. The barman says, “Is this some kind of joke?” That’s exactly how I feel about this film, because of this trailer.
Most people didn’t like Death Proof, Quentin Tarantino’s segment of 2007’s double bill Grindhouse. Personally I liked the film and I’m sure I would have loved it if I had grown up during the era of exploitation flicks it faithfully replicated. At any rate, the only real complaint you hear is that it was ‘boring’.[…]
Michael Mann – back on form?
