Riveting ‘Joker’ is No Laughing Matter (Review)

Riveting ‘Joker’ is No Laughing Matter (Review)

Joker is without a doubt the most daring movie to come out with DC Comics associated with a property. While Joker features no superheroes who can talk to fish, or a failed team up of superheroes that will drive a group of rabid fans to demand to see some director’s cut they think exists locked away in a vault hundreds of feet below the Warner Brothers studio lot, there is plenty of risk with associated with this property. It’s a mid-size budgeted comic book movie that features no action sequences, spiffy visual effects, or Bat signal, and is also carries an R rating. It comes from director Todd Phillips, whose biggest titles are The Hangover movies and Old School. And finally, it’s another incarnation of the Clown Prince of Crime, whose previous iterations include a couple that are heralded as some of the best ever villain characters on film. But against all odds, Joker defies expectations and is one of the most memorable comic book adaptations in recent memory, thanks to a powerhouse performance from Joaquin Phoenix and confident direction from Phillips.

A Quick Look At Some of The Most Memorable Movie Memorabilia

A Quick Look At Some of The Most Memorable Movie Memorabilia

The role that film plays in society and the impact it has had on wider popular culture over the last century or so is almost possible to overstate. A rather telling example of this comes in the form of a study done by VisitBritain, which estimates that in 2001, approximately 20% of the 23 million visitors to the UK did so simply because of the way the country has been portrayed on television and film. If this isn’t enough to convince you of the indelible impact that the film industry has on our lives then you need to look no further than the rise in collection of movie memorabilia over the last 25 years or so.
