Never watched Suicide Squad, really.


So this is a second solo Joker movie that they announced? It is strange.

Which is kind of funny in itself, because of all the characters in that movie, everyone I know and everyone I saw comment didn't like the character at all.


Poor WB really, REALLY needs a Feige.

I didn't mind Leto's Joker...his look was off, though. I mean, it must be tough being the next Joker after Heath Ledger's tour de force performance.


But yeah, DC is struggling quite a bit to get things right lately.

While I know I'm in the minority ... Jared Leto's Joker wasn't horrendous. The problem with Suicide Squad and his character is ... they cut his scenes. When you see the extended cut it makes so much more sense.

While I don't think Suicide Squad was some fantastic movie, I did like it. :)
I think based on those scenes not shown, you could see why DC would give Joker a film, imo.

I don't remember seeing the scenes when I rented it on Play. Is it a Blu-Ray only thing?

I don't know Paradox Jast - I rented from a service, the rental provided the "full cut" as it were. I'm certain blu-ray probably does too. I know when I rented, it was for all of the movie.

Hrm. Guess I'll rent it again. Maybe I wasn't paying attention. That's always a possibility.

Yeah, I didn't think Leto was bad. It was the movie and the writing in general

Has anyone seen this last season of "Gotham"? The guy who plays Jerome/Jeremiah (i.e. young Joker) does a heck of a good job of it. He literally plays two possible versions of the Joker and I thought he nailed it. Creepy as hell.

If you do, make sure the words "extended cut" is there for the rental. That way, you aren't wasting money and not seeing all of Joker's scenes. When I watched it I was rather surprised how much more detailed Harley's story was with those scenes. While they probably didn't mean to, the film humanized Joker through Harley.

I still can't believe it's happening. Phoenix is one of my favorite actors and Phillips is a pretty good comedy director at least. Also, it's being produced by Scorsese, which is a good sign
