It hasn't been useful yet, but I know in my heart it will be someday.Ahh hell, the lava from Yosemite will never reach Knoxville.On a related note: I believed it all. Quicksand took you down. Lava absolutely destroyed everything it touched. You can have a conversation while parachuting. Dual wielded handguns were accurate and seldom needed reloading. And as long as you ate your vegetables, said your prayers, and chewed tobacco, you too could use an M134 Minigun as your walkin' around weapon.
Really? I'm surprised people are excited for this.
I hope people that are into it enjoy it, but I have zero interest in this.
It just looks like a bloated and watered down version of all the 739 mob movies these guys have been in during the past 30 years.
Am I alone thinking this? I'm not being smart or bullying for an argument, I'm genuinely curious.

I'm not setting you up for a debate, but why don't you like it? You've just got some pretty strong feelings about the Joker based on your comments and I'm trying to puzzle them out.
In regards to liking or hating Joker "origin" stories or how he should act, I think that Grant Morrison has the best idea. His theory is that the explanation for why the Joker is so different from period to period, story arc to story arc is that his psychosis makes his personality shift and he moves up and down the violence spectrum. Morrison used that to explain how the Joker can murder a family in one story and use Joker fish to menace Gotham in another story or have a painted over mustach in the 66 series.
I see this movie, the Nolan films and even suicide squad like this. I don't ever get too twisted up on how the Joker is portrayed.
Now Batman, I've got rules on that :b
