On Episode 362 of The Harold & Maudecast, Sarah and Jake review, Joker.
Fledgling comedian Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) has been bullied and disregarded his whole life. After an escalating series of abuse and a very public shaming by his comic idol, Murray Franklin (Robert De Niro), Arthur begins a bloody, destructive revolt against society. This dark path he chooses leads him to embrace his alter-ego: "The Joker".
Director Todd Phillips' (The Hangover trilogy), take on the DC character is now the highest grossing R rated movie of all time. More Taxi Drive than Dark Knight, Joker unravels the layers of the character, driven by one of the greatest performances in movie history. Phoenix's Joker never diminishes the brilliance of Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson's performances. In his committed, conscientious performance he reminds us that the Joker is one of greatest fictional characters of all time. Please give this man an Oscar.
Spoiler Level: Moderate

This Episode of The HMC's Justice & Doom Movie Reviews, JUSTICE LEAGUE.
Yes! It's finally here, many many years in the making. We were super excited watching Jason Momoa run through the 6000 person crowd in Hall H to introduce the cast of Justice League. So was the movie worth all the hype? We break it down, talk Tomatoes, and compare universe blueprints -- Marvel v DC. The Justice League may crush The Avengers in a Super hero war ( Superman folks, come on, okay and Martian Manhunter, seriously, stop arguing this one), but Marvel is DESTROYING DC in the movie universe. We break it all down. Justice 7.3/10
JUSTICE LEAGUE is directed by Zach Snyder (with significant reshoots by Joss Whedon), written by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, starring Ben Affleck, Gal Godot, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Jeremy Irons.
