Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Pagliacci."

Yeah, totally agree since Cameron Monaghan has been able to show multiple versions of the Joker very well.

 

Recent Gotham trailer we just got Monday has me way more excited then this for sure.

I thought that this was pretty neat. I want to see more on this, to see where it it going. Is it going to be a long transformation across the film or is it going to actually show him as Joker doing his thing and his first run into batman?

This is set in the early 80s, so Bruce is still a kid and Thomas Wayne is featured.  I want to write this off on concept...but I'll be dipped if it doesn't look like a compelling film in its own right.

 

Again, DC has played with the idea of multiple Jokers, so maybe this is setting up a "legacy" that Batman, theoretically, could address later on?

Looks interesting, a more psychological take. I hope they don't make him too sympathetic, and go more for "all this bad stuff happened but that doesn't excuse what he does". We'll see.

Leaning a bit too hard into the Scorsese/"Taxi Driver" inspiration, isn't it?

 

Still, this looks more interesting than everything else DC is putting out.


Yep.

Having watched the trailer, I'm not impressed, the guy playing the Joker, just seems to lack a sense of charm that been present in the other verisons of Joker put to screen, I'll pass on this in cinemas at least. The main reason the Joker works so well is when he pitted against Batman, but I feel this is just a unneeded movie with a rather dull actor taking the role, besides we got a desent origin story for the Joker forming in Gotham (TV series) and the actors in that have been pretty good.

1) Gotham is beautiful garbage. It's a show that is objectively bad by almost every metric yet I'll still miss it when it ends.

 

2) We didn't t get a lot (any?) of Joker/Joker in the trailer so it's not really fair to judge it against performances that it is not.

My thoughts exactly. I'm not sure what yo make of it now. Except that i agree that i hope they don't make him sad and lonely and stuck in a dark world that makes his insanity somehow a sympathetic thing.

Well, er, the Scorcese and Fellini influences are interesting, at least.  I'm pretty anti-having-a-sympathetic-Joker, though, so he better be pretty damn deranged by the second or third act of this thing.

I've been 100% onboard with this film ever since the Makeup test.

 

 

 

For me, the trailer was less "Taxi Driver" and more "Falling Down". There's an old saw of the Internet that as a kid you idolize Batman but as an adult you realize Joker makes more sense. I think that's pretty much the driving premise of the film.

 

EDIT: Second viewing, I catch the fact he's taking care of his mother who likely has Alzhemiers/Dementia. I figured out how they're going to turn the audience against him in the climax. Just like when Rob Zombie had Mike Meyers murder Danny Trejo....
