The Killing Joke: The Last Laugh

So I know this post is super super late, but I finally got to watch “Batman: The Killing Joke” the other night, and I would just like to give some feedback on what I thought of it. Now I know everyone probably by now has seen the movie and has their own opinion, but I felt I needed to say how I felt. I’ll even throw in some spoilers, even though people have probably read every review possible on this movie, and what every other person thought of it, even myself included while you’re reading this. When we look back, this movie was honestly one of the most anticipated animated movies in a long time. Everyone from the regular graphic novel Killing Joke lovers, to the people who have been keeping an a close ear to the forums anticipated this to be something special. Finding out this film was going to be an R rated animated movie, everyone thought  maybe we’ll see more or hear more cuss words and see a lot blood and violence. Or maybe even Joker will be more violent then usual , almost like we’ll see the true nature of the joker.

 

Now when this trailer hit airwaves, everyone was like ok this is gonna be amazing, this is  gonna be dope, just seeing this famous battle between Batman and Joker, even though we’ve seen it a million times, we still love to come back for more. I know when I was this trailer I was like ok this is really great; an animated film for a comic I’ve always heard about, never read, but every time I went to a comic book store or just looked at the Batman comics I would see the Killing Joke cover, and say to myself that’s a really dope cover. Never knowing why I didn’t really read it, I might have skimmed through it or because it had the plastic cover on it I just didn’t touch it, you know how some stores do. But besides that; I just thought this is a great year for this movie to come out with Suicide squad coming around the same time, DC is making a lot of moves, then the reviews came in.

Gotham: The Last Laugh

Told you guys I would be back for part 2 and HERE WE GO! So I ended off talking about last week’s episode of Gotham and how it was the rise of what we think The Joker. Last Night’s episode started off with Jim Gordon still emotional hurt by the death of the newly appointed police chief who was gunned down in front of the whole city of Gotham by Jerome valeska on camera. Jim and his partner Harvey Bullock who has finally returned are searching for Jerome all over the city shaking anyone and everyone who will give information on his whereabouts. From the looks of Jim is the one in charge of everything at the GCPD and is trying to make sure everyone is on top of their game, but it also makes you feel like why isn’t everyone else as hurt as Jim is.  Harvey is easily the muscle in this situation having Jim’s back and making sure no one tries to double cross him, but Lee (Jim’s girlfriend) tries to calm Jim down by saying there will be a magician later on in the night which they could go see. Well they would be in for a big surprise. Continue reading “Gotham: The Last Laugh”
