Fuck the JOKER movie

I’m watching JOKER off an illegal Russian streaming site because I don’t want to give them any of my money. FUCK THIS MOVIE !!! Joaquin Pheonix is a self-indulgent asshole (Remember his “I’m a rapper” phase where grew a beard and started actin all aloof?) This gives us an origin story NO FAN wants. The entire mystique of Heath Ledger’s Joker was that his origin story always changing. Maybe, just maybe, if they had used Alan Moore’s “One Bad Day” story-line from THE KILLING JOKE, this movie would have been slightly forgivable. This movie practically lifts scenes from THE KING OF COMEDY, TAXI DRIVER, NETWORK, and to a lesser extent, FALLING DOWN. This movie plays right into the paranoid, victim-in-their-own-head, I’m-being-marginalized crowd as a revenge fantasy. Then it blames the system when all it’s actually doing is normalizing sociopathic behavior. This puts the wrong idea into dangerous minds. It’s not groundbreaking. It’s not wanted. It’s a waste of time and energy
