The Killing Joke

The Killing Joke. I got all excited about Mark Hamill playing the Joker again. (BTAS)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman...nimated_Series

Then it turned into one of the worst Batman films I've ever seen. Truly disgusting and revolting. The graphic novel wasn't that good, but the levels of depravity that this film goes to is really disturbing. Grade of this 'film' F-. Don't rent it...

Saw Star Trek Beyond.

As a Star Trek purist, I was disappointed with where JJ Abrams was taking the franchise. But I'll say this though, the current movie directed by Justin Lin isn't so bad despite being in the reboot series, which I hate very much.

It still involves a lot of action, but got in science and little techno-babble, something that was solely missing in the JJ Abrams movies. The story makes a lot more sense and keeps us on our toes as the pace is quick and cuts to main points.

I give it two thumbs up and four out of five stars. It's a well job done and will definitely recommend it to anyone.

With that recommendation I want to see it, however does this one at least get off of Earth? The first two reboots spent an inordinate amount of time on Earth. Which really isn't what Star Trek was about.

Shooting a Star Trek Movie that mostly takes place on Earth saves a lot of money on scenes and CGI.

Trust me, it's off of Earth. There are new alien species, no more same old aliens that we see often like Klingons, Romulans, Borg, etc.

I can't say more, you'll just have to watch it.

I just saw this-



And I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone... especially any young and idealistic folks who are searching for the truth.
It is really incredible, how things have been swept under the rug.
