    That’s one of those things where the parody, despite being coded as a parody by its ludicrousness, is almost indistinguishable from real crazy people.

    I was very skeptical of this movie, but the reviews are all saying that this is Oscar worthy material here. I also heard about the leaked script a few months back and wasn't too excited by the direction but it seems I was wrong. I will be there opening weekend for this!

    See, this is my main problem with that post...

    To me personally, it feels like a lot of folks have been sitting around twiddling their thumbs waiting for what they believe will happen to come to pass.

    The film should not have to go about it's existence as art trying to negotiate those people or the folks that they believe are posting things that clearly are a tune up.

    I came across an article from after the recent screening where Phillips said that folks who had bought into that script might be in for a surprise.

    No telling if he is trying to throw folks off of the trail, or being straight with the potential audience.

    I hope that the film is commercially successful, but I wonder what this means for comics-adaptations in the future, whether they will veer back to the Nolan style of more "realism" and dramatically less spectacle.

    I think it's fine so long as the movies aren't these big expensive summer block busters. Small scale cheap movies like this are fine, so long as people understand what this is and what it's trying to be.

    Does anybody else feel this way?
    Yes and no.

    I've loved the Marvel movies and really the only DC movie I didn't enjoy was the BvS, JL stuff. The rest I thought was quite good.

    I tihnk there's room for both and liking both.

    I don't think you can call this a Nolan style film. I think this film just kinda shows what we've known about superhero comics for a long time. They are very versatile and you can tell many different types of stories with these characters that go beyond the standard cape flicks we normally get.

    I really hope there's no Joker inspired crimes once the movie rolls into theatres.

    That’s good! I am not really a fan of the big twist that was in the leaked script so I am interested to see if they replaced it or it makes more sense in the final product.

    Yea that dude that shot up the movie theater in Colorado during the Dark Knight Rises Thursday night screenings directly told police that he was the Joker or inspired by him. I hope nothing crazy like that happens..
