How can you say they did it better if you’re passing on seeing this one?

They could make a mistake.  YOUR review is what matters.

I was a fan of Siskel & Ebert reviews. They weren’t 100% correct in their reviews, IMO.

This is a stand alone film that intentionally does not connect with DCEU or Batman.

I still love Heath Ledge's JOKER performance but I digress.

However, the reviews I've seen about the appearance of so many sistas in here and what that means,

honestly, it has me very VERY curious.

Soooo.....soon as it hits netflix






Let’s Talk About The Black Women In ‘Joker’
Is there a reason why the majority of the women Joker interacts with on-screen happen to be Black?

I AGREE.  HOWEBER, IT DOES PRESENT THE MOST PLAUSIBLE AND NON-COMIC BOOK REASONING FOR WHY A CRIMINAL WOULD PARADE AROUND IN CLOWN CLOTHES.  IT IS A GREAT MOVIE WORTHY OF OSCAR BUZZ.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
