When has a movie incited violence in a theatre? This horse shit of an incel outrage is so pathetic.

Absolutely loved it.

Joaquin killed it in the role. The story was extremely well-written. It was sad, exciting, a little funny at times, and just kept you on the edge.

I give it a 9/10

That was my main problem with the movie

If they were gonna do an alternate take, shoulda said Bruce was home from boarding school or something and went to the opera/ movies.

Whether you want to believe it or not is irrelevant, some theatres have banned ppl dressing up like clowns, undercover nypd cops in New York theatre, and another theatre shut down due to credible threat. Thereís enough ppl that seem to think something can definitely happen.

Plus, it's not like the US army issued a memo to it's soldiers to be on the lookout and gave instructions to seek cover in case of an incel shooter.

Oh wait, it actually did.

Coin24 sounds like a triggered incel.

I just think this movie can potentially incite violence in movie theatres. That’s not a knock on the movie, it’s a knock on American modern society.

I’m just saying for discussions sake, as a filmmaker, how does that come into play during the creative process. It has to be in the back of your mind

Artists are eccentric people, their voice or vision or whatever you wanna call it, is really all that matters to many, and I get that. A lot of directors are intrigued by extremes of society because of their curiosity for evil and darkness. I doubt many really care or would be willing to accept any type of responsibility even if it was directly influential.

Then consider the suits. These guys ONLY care about profit margins from the budget. I don't think a lot of these Illuminati cats would change their method of getting more rich. The only way they restrict art is when they know it will affect box office.

WB prolly said fck it, let's go hard with this because they needed a shot in the arm, have had a lot of big budget mishaps lately. They knew a provocative movie about THE JOKER (mass appeal/icon) would be not as risky as a regular drama of this ilk because teenagers will still be able to spend mom and dad's skrilla regardless of rating



I wanna see this movie again. I've been thinking of it on and off all day
I may even reactivate my blog site and write a review

Felt bad for him when that woman told him to stop bothering his son.

Also felt bad when they smashed him with yellow sign.

And when they attacked him in train.

I hope this kind of bullying stops irl.

It just occurred to me how similar the subplot with Murray was to what Tosh.0 does

Y'all want a video of Joaquin's mom's house?

So interesting she lives in this tiny town in a quaint house.

They must have a strained relationship.

A theater by my moms house that I've been to plenty of times actually got closed down for the night last night after a "credible" threat was made.
