They wanted everything to be like Marvel, and then when DC did make a Marvel-like movie with Aquaman, they criticized that.
    BvS was the biggest waste of time I've ever experienced in a movie theater. I say this as someone who paid money to see Batman and Robin and Alien: Resurrection. Even thinking about that overwrought garbage simultaneously bores and infuriates me.

    Man of Steel was okay with the exception of Pa Kent being such an asshole. I'm very ambivalent about how effective Superman actually was in that flick.

    What could a common man do to catch her eye?
    Her easy manner shames me, oh I hate myself so much!
    I tremble and I'm breathless and I'm begging for her touch.
    She sees my anguished urges but continues smirking by,
    If I dare to follow her, it's likely that I'll die.
    But even as she's feeding, as my body's torn apart,
    Will she think upon me kindly?
    When she slowly eats my heart?

    I watched it in three different months (in its own way it still looks and sounds great on a big screen) and never got to watch it in less than a half full at least showing. Not even at nighttime.

    I guess that's how you make more than a billion without 3D or China.

    It should get a bump around Oscar season too.

    its at 1.05 billion at the box office. Awards season has kicked in and Joker is looking strong.

    AFI Top 10 film

    7 critics choice awards nominations including a nomination in the overall drama category.

    5 Golden Globes including for picture, directing and acting.

    if it plays through award seasons and keeps getting nominated. the final box office would be 1.1 billion.

    In its 10th weekend that just wrapped, Joker finally fell out of the top 10, landing at #11.

    There'll be too many new movies in December for Joker to spring back into the top 10, I'd wager, but It'll be interesting to see if the Golden Globe nominations generate an uptick in ticket sales even if its chart ranking falls a bit.

    As for actually winning the Golden Globes, it's hard to say. Joker has 4 nominations, but category-mates The Irishman and Marriage Story have more -- 5 and 6 respectively.

    The fact that Joker only has 1 acting nomination might hurt it in comparison to Marriage Story, which has 3 acting noms and Irishman, which has 2.

    Also, Joker is the only one of the three that does NOT have a Best Screenplay nomination.

    I'm thinking that Joker will be seen as an actor's showcase for Phoenix, and that might get him the Actor win, but that might be it.

    Marriage Story seems to have its nominations spread out among more categories, which gives off the impression that it's a better, more broad-based, film. It's got both a Best Actress (Scarlett Johansson) and Best Actor (Adam Driver) nomination (but interestingly, no Best Director nom).
