Late Gamer Watches “Batman: The Killing Joke”

Late Gamer Watches “Batman: The Killing Joke”
By: Hidai Moya

Based on the iconic graphic novel of the same name, this movie tells the dual story of the origins of the Joker and how he got to be so demented & his vile “final plan” on how to deal with Batman. While it was decried by many to be a mediocre adaptation of the novel, I’m not a fundamentalist about adaptations so some of the changes made didn’t bother much. By the time of its release we have already gotten plenty of movies exploring the edge of darkness that Batman must traverse when the Joker pushes him far. I was never once bored with this movie but given the subject matter it’s about I didn’t feel it delivered the emotional devastation it should have. Came across feeling just like an average Batman movie. “The Return of the Joker” film set the bar for emotionally devastating Joker scenes & this didn’t reach that level. Grade B-

Extraction (2020) is a beautifully choreographed ballad of violence. It was great seeing Chris Hemsworth play the part of relentless mercenary; hell, this showed me what an awesome live-action BSAA operative Chris Redfield adaptation could look like one day.
