    - joker being wayne son -
    no, that was just a tease, when happy/joker snatched those asylum documents, they revealed that he was adopted and not related to the wayne family - the (step)mother had a disorder where she imagined a relationship with bruce's father

    i mean i hate that in this movie that they stripped joker Cunningness
    they call it deconstruction: take a character people are familiar with, turn him upside down or pervert him in some way, bribe the critics ie. start up the propaganda/hype machine and sell that to the audience

    as if that wasn't bad enough, happy was supposed to be a stand up comedian and a clown, yet all his jokes were a failure and the clown performances rather poor - even when acting as the joker, what he does is not really funny - so both of his names are a joke, his job was a joke, his abilities yet another joke, etc. - seems the joke was on the viewers


    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    i think banshee tv show had more brutal murders than this ,could put the murders from joker equal with the one's from Boardwalk Empire maybe,but nobody get their eyes rolled overthere + depicting the sociopath wich kills his mother ,enjoys his kills and so on is often depicted in the same way no mather the tv show or movie - it's almoust a Cliché in hollywood along with the somebody getting bullied - the nasty world depicted i didn't even taken to consideration since i was more ofuscated about turning a supervillan in an average sociopath killer joe condimented on his character only with this " happy was supposed to be a stand up comedian and a clown, yet all his jokes were a failure and the clown performances rather poor - even when acting as the joker, what he does is not really funny - so both of his names are a joke, his job was a joke, his abilities yet another joke, etc. - seems the joke was on the viewers"

    yes but this part i think was let to viewer interpretation on wich side do you believe : her side - or Wayne Side that could doctored the documents ,being a billionaire and not wanting to destroy his familly ,marriage for an adventure - but mostly wanted to point out that this part could be cool and adding some logic in why the most equal and rutless enemy for batman was Joker considering back when supervillans appeared they had no background they where just supervillans

    bottom line : the whole movie was shit with 10% interesting parts - even Jared Leto Joker ( wich was the worst) , had more character)

    The movie relied heavily on Phoenix's performance and he was actually really good in it. If you told me its wasn't in the Batman universe and just another movie, i would have believed you. But it was mostly the protagonist, everything else was just ok. An 8/10 for me

    The movie was definitely awesome, but in my view, the origin was pretty wacko. It wasnt comic accurate, and while I am not complaining, its definitely a good one that is shown in this movie, but I liked the one in the Killing Joke by Alan Moore.

    The acting was a bit off for me, overall great, but I think Heath Ledger portrayed a more comic accurate version with that maniacal laugh. This movie's laugh was more of a medical condition, and its definitely a new take, while not the one that I like too much.

    But the ending definitely was great, we dont get to know whether the full movie happened in Joker's mind or not....it definitely a new take, and overall, I like it.
