Joker is taking the cinema world by storm as it continues to premiere at film festivals and rock movie critics’ worlds. But there’s a consensus between some critics that Joker‘s dark storytelling is so well-made that it may actually inspire more violence in the United States.
With mass shootings occurring every day and movie theater shootings have happened in the past critics fear that Joker‘s tale of a man on the brink of sanity finally deciding to go off and kill a whole bunch of people may inspire others with the same philosophy to follow The Joker’s playbook, which would be HORRIBLE.
And, as people prepare for the film’s premiere this Thursday is Texas US Army military has found “credible” evidence that certain individuals are considering “the targeting of an unknown movie theater during the release” on the dark web. Costumes, face masks, and paint has also been banned at all movie theaters for moviegoers and employees for the film. Yeah, the fear surrounding this film’s disturbing message is no joke.
Yes, we love a good story that strikes us in our very core but Joker may have taken things a little too far.

For the past couple of years, superhero movies have been recognized for more than just their impressive box-office numbers. Hugh Jackman’s last portrayal of the iconic superhero, Wolverine, came around in Logan, which would be nominated at The Oscars for Best Adapted Screenplay. Then last year Black Panther was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture, and ended up winning three of them, shocking the world. At that moment, it became clear that superhero movies weren’t being looked at as merely popcorn flicks anymore.
These were solidly made, well-thought-out films that deserved just as much recognition as the more serious movies designed to receive Oscar buzz.
This year we have two AMAZING comic book movies that could get receive some serious Oscar buzz; Avengers: Endgame and Joker. For Endgame, Robert Downey Jr. could easily receive an Oscar nomination, considering that the film was his last outing as the iconic hero, Iron Man, and he evidently poured his heart into the final performance.
And with Joker just debuting at the Venice Film Festival, the buzz is persistent that this is one of the best movies of the year. And everyone agrees that Joaquin Phoenix will DEFINITELY be nominated for his role as the iconic DC Comics villain, The Joker. His portrayal of the dark and demented psychopath left viewers shaken and riveted all at once.
So, is it possible that this could be the first time we see two actors get the recognition they rightfully deserve for their roles in comic book movies at The Oscars? I sure hope so.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker is getting more and more disturbing by the second. I saw the final trailer today and I’m going to tell the truth, it didn’t make me want to watch this movie. Not in the slightest.
The Joker has always been, in my opinion, one of the most disturbing fictional villains of all time and this trailer only proved that point. With no further delay, here’s the trailer so you can determine how you feel about it.
The funny thing about this trailer is it’s so disturbing I don’t even know if the movie is going to be good or not. If it is good it’s going to be one of the best comic book films of all time. If it’s bad, it’s going to be really, really bad. But I have a feeling that it’s not going to be a bad movie.
I just personally don’t have any desire to see this story on the big screen.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
Fall is coming and that means the fall movie season is at our doorstep and I have to say, the upcoming films set to arrive at the back half of 2019 look amazing. So, on that note, here’s a lineup of movies you may want to set your calendar date for.
IT: Chapter Two
Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.
Like horror? Interested in the IT franchise? Well, not only does IT: Chapter Two look wet-your-pant scary but it actually looks pretty good. This will be one to watch.
Arrives September 6 (in IMAX.) Continue reading Here Are the Best Looking Movies Coming This Fall
The Joker is truly one of the most disturbing characters to ever be created and it seems that DC Comics is only taking what makes this character so horrifying to the next level. I’m telling ya, Joaquin Phoenix was already chilling from his role as Commodus in Gladiator but now he’s really creeping me out. This couldn’t have been a better casting choice because Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker is truly one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen. And if you don’t believe me, check out this trailer.
I’m going to say it. I think Joaquin Phoenix’s rendition of The Joker is creepier than Heath Ledger’s version. Yes, Heath Ledger’s Joker is iconic for his twisted jokes and his haunting persona but this trailer is just…horrifying.
I watched this trailer in stunned horror because the farther the trailer the more creepy it became. This movie is set to come out this October and I believe that’s the perfect choice to release this film because this looks worse than a horror movie.
Now, does the movie look good? Honestly, I don’t know. I’m frankly too disturbed to care.
How do you feel about the trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

If you didn’t know a DC Comics movie featuring Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker is set to come out this October. Yeah, doesn’t that sound awesome? And, amidst the Avengers: Endgame ruckus today it seems the first teaser poster for the highly-anticipated Joker film came out.
So, here’s a look at the ultra-creepy poster for the ultimate villain.
The Joker is clearly one of the scariest superhero villains of all time so it’s no surprise that this poster is, well, disturbing.
The first teaser for Joker will drop tomorrow and you can be sure to see what I have to say about it ’cause I am totally excited to see what it’ll look like.
How do you feel about this poster? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
