    I really enjoyed it, and that did bother me.

    would have been nice if they made Bruce like 15 or so, but I’m not sure how they would have made that work since it would have altered the lore.

    I mean, they had already altered the lore by even giving Joker this origin story. That whole scene just felt so forced to me. Like some idiot movie producer going "We gotta work Bruce Wayne into this movie somehow!". And the whole sliding down the pole thing just to really drive the point home lol.

    IDK I just have mixed emotions about this one. I feel like, from a technical standpoint, this is a very well made movie. It just never really grabbed me, despite typically being a sucker for anything Batman/Joker. I think that's probably because it really didn't feel like a Batman/Joker movie at all. Like remove the Bruce scene and the fact that he's called "Joker" and it's just some slow burn story about a lunatic clown who kills a few people, a la Taxi Driver. I know I'm probably not explaining my thoughts on this part very well but I'm having trouble putting it into words at the moment. Like it almost felt like this was a totally independent script and then they just tacked on some Batman mythology, if that makes sense.

    I'd rather watch Mask of the Phantasm over and over again.

    No I get it, I feel it falls victim to the same thing “Gotham” fell victim to.

    You want your signature guy in the movie for fan service, even though it wasn’t really needed. Had Phoenix been about 7ish years younger, I believe it would have worked. Then push the time frame into like the 90s or so.

    I get all your complaints, and they are valid, I just loved seeing an origin story, and imo, was a good story. Maybe not executed as well, like you mentioned, but it had an interesting dynamic imo.

    Finally watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Kinda knew what direction it was going to go pretty quickly. Still had some good moments.

    “Anybody accidentally kills anybody in a fight is going to jail, it’s called manslaughter.”

    I watched Venom last night. There was a good movie in there somewhere. It just didn't have a chance to come out.

    The initial interactions between Eddie Brock and Venom were great. Then the third act started...

    It was extremely rushed... SONY was gunning for the franchise.

    Also...

    I felt the information that Venom was "killing" Brock over time was blown off.

    Yea this was my opinion as well.

    It’s like they couldn’t decide between Deadpool or a Spider-Man film.
