Joker
#1
Not a fan of non realistic comic book movies, but this new character study of the Joker's origins looks very different and has me intrigued.

One of the more moving trailers I have scene in a while.

The cinematography, the music, and the acting look incredible.  It does a great job of eliciting sympathy for this man and identifying with his descent
into madness. 

I like the gritty, early 80's feel as well.

Interesting, although I still think Jack Nicholson played the best Joker ever.

Ya, me too. I never met Joaquin (Leaf), but I have known his sisters Liberty and Rain. Met his mother Heart as well at their place in Micanopy, Florida.

As for this movie, it sure beats the dogs he's been in lately, from the looks of the trailers. Hope so. He's a decent actor, mostly. He really was a good "Johny Cash".

For real?

Unusual family history they have.  

What were they like, if I may ask?

Succinctly: The event I attended was a 'mutual admiration society' meeting, like most events involving folks of their ilk (vis-à-vis: Media types). I grew up in SoCal, in Hollywood North, or Burbank. I bumped elbows with them, but never got very immersed in the stuff, thankfully.
