Before the remake craze, we had the ‘trilogy sequel franchise’ craze. I wish they’d stopped with the first movie!
In response to Joker, families of those shot have written to the studio, asking them to support gun law reform.
None of us have seen the movie. I can’t recognise movies as a reason why people shoot each other. It’s a consistently discredited theory. And I don’t see why that makes me unlike a human being.
Indeed. Things people see and hear can certainly have an influence, but perhaps we should be more concerned about media commentary and midnight tweets than movies.
You’ve mistaken ‘story’ for ‘ideal’
This baffles me. Phil hasn’t seen the movie and isn’t aware of how the film-makers have handled the material, but is suggesting the movie perhaps shouldn’t exist. Is there really something uniquely dangerous about this particular example of a common narrative? Are we likely to view the character’s journey with a mindless desire to be like him, or like adults?
Sorry to be so critical. I’d expect this approach in the Daily Mail, but in a cinema blog...? Truly baffling.
