The Art OF Self Defense.
Solid story with a couple of decent twists and a few very funny moments. Jessie Eisenberg killed it.

I'm surprised El Camino had a whole scene with Walt and Jesse just blowing each other's cocks until they came in each other's mouths. 10/10 movie.
Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

Really well-done and entertaining dystopianism.

El Camino

Very unsatisfying if you're expecting a standard movie arc, but as an epilogue it's good. The PTSD elements were pretty interesting. Frankly this wasn't necessary but worth the watch if you're into the show.

Dog Eat Dog

Nicholas Cage and Willem Defoe and some other dude doing heist ****. Fun off the chain action romp.

Melvin Goes to Dinner

Jack Black's part was great though.
Studies show that when a given norm is changed in the face of the unchanging, the remaining contradictions will parallel the truth.

If internet nerds watched movies made by people other than Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino I imagine that would be meme gold.

Here's your review Bats. Actually, this perfect because I call you Bats just like Joker calls Batman, Bats. Weird huh?

Anyway, I saw this last night with my girlfriend. I don't get to go out to movies much. I've become a bit anti-people which would coincide with the theme of the film I'm about to talk about but really it's because I deal with them all f*cking day and after work I just wanna chill and be an indoor kid. My lady is okay with this and she likes to chill with me in my apartment but we gotta go date and sh*t every once in a while and it makes me happy to make her happy so we did a movie.

I usually try not to get into spoiler territory and while I won't discuss specific plot points, I'm going to talk about the tone and feel of Joker so if you don't like that, f*ck off now.

Heath Ledger's Joker was a one of a kind performance that launched into legendary status with his untimely death before the movie came out. It's untouchable and deserves to be so. However, this is NOT Ledger's joker. Ledger's joker was calculated. He was mysterious. He was almost a spectre in a sea of Nolan-esque comic book fantasy, showing up for a few chilling scenes and then hauling off somewhere like a ghost only to come back and scare the sh*t out of us again once Bruce was done trying to f*ck Maggie Gyllenhaal (I forget her characters name and honestly don't care to look it up. That's how much I did not give a f*ck).

Phoenix's Joker was, well, one of the best character studies I can remember watching in a long long time. In fact, I'd say the first 90 minutes of this film enters the territory of masterwork in how to tell a tragic story of the origin of a monster. Phoenix has been a favorite actor of mine since I saw him beat the sh*t out of some aliens with a baseball bat in Signs. Since then he's made some so-so films but then gave one of my favorite acting performances of all time in The Master and all of a sudden, hot sh*t, I'm a HUGE Joaquin Phoenix fan. I heard he was going to portray the Joker and all of a sudden I care about Batman again. I knew it would be calculated and breathtaking but I did not know it would be this heartbreaking. My heart BROKE for Arthur. That's good storytelling. That's good character development. That's good acting and I hope he gets awards for it. He was marvelous and it shows just how trans formative the man can be. His body transormation and his facial expressions was Joker, or at least what led to Joker.

I mentioned the first 90 minutes. The last 30 were very very good but it sort of crept back into being a comic book movie and while I am totally fine with that, it being a comic book origin movie and all, I was too engulfed in this film to make the switch back into Gotham stuff. I will say however that it didn't get too bad but there were some music choices and some scenes that seemed to be included only to appease the comic fans and it threw me off slightly. However the last 30 minutes were tense, beautifully shot, and again, wonderfully acted by Phoenix. It's less of a gripe and more of a turn that I was okay with but preferred the scenic route instead.

Todd Phillips made a wonderful movie. I REALLY hope this stands alone as the only Phoenix Joker film because it's almost perfect and I don't think they should ruin that. This was a character study of a descent into madness that was earned and never felt forced and if they force a sequel out of a perfect story, it'll be a damn shame.


Pretty much a perfect film. Loved it.
