John Wick of Dogs
Mar 4, 2017

The plan here is to reinvent Rin Tin Tin as a modern action star, the John Wick of dogs.


There was absolutely nothing wrong with Leto joker on screen. It was a completely normal portrayal of the character as a gangster. The only problem with it were obnoxious promo images and marketing trying to make it sound like Leto was just uncontrollable and crazy and cool and extreme behind the scenes and an extremely important part of the movie when it's a very minor role. But that poo poo isn't in the movie.

I wonder if part of that was trying to live up to the stories around Ledger doing crazy poo poo to get into the right headspace to play the Joker in The Dark Knight.

Didn't Will Smith or someone even later say all the anecdotes about how CRRAAAAZZZZY AND WEIRD he was on set was marketing bullshit too?

Yes, and so did Margot Robbie (https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-...t-a7133926.html)

The entire thing was "people don't like the direction they're taking the character so they glom on to any negative thing and blow it out of proportion" Internet weirdness, which actually isn't that weird (it happens a lot)

I got more of the impression that Leto was just being an rear end in a top hat to his coworkers and ramdom people on set, but I guess that counts as being crazy and wild in some eyes.

This reminds me of just how misleading the trailers for Suicide Squad were in general. So much of what was in those trailers did not actually make it into the movie.

Reminder that RDJ, whose father is one of the fundamental people in 60s/70s independent cinema and made Putney Swope, and who got back into the game off the back of things like A Scanner Darkly and The Singing Detective and whose best friends in the world (Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster) make independent movies, thinks independent film is masturbatory and he wonít appear in any.

He then went and made The Judge.

I guarantee he 1) wasn't treated nearly as bad in prison as the average prisoner anyway and 2) probably genuinely believes that he deserved to be in prison and that his success is his reward for cleaning up his life, and just flat out doesn't acknowledge that 99% of other people who go through the criminal justice system don't just get the chances he did

An interview with Sterling K. Brown dropped today where he says that nobody told him what accent to do in Black Panther, which is pretty lol. Seems like a bit of a worldbuilding oversight, especially considering Wonder Woman made the effort of having the Amazons uniformly speak with Gal Gadotís natural accent to create a consistency in the Amazonian culture.

To be fair, articles about it have kind of buried it but he did eventually learn and use the "Wakandan" accent; it's just that no one thought to tell him until he'd rocked up on set with another accent already prepared.

I still think Wakanda was the weakest element of Black Panther, and you'd have had a much better film with a lot less baggage if it had stuck with the 'Superpowered African James Bond' motif that it seemed to be establishing in the Korean scenes.
Instead the whole plot hinges on the dumbass internal politics of this poorly established place.

It doesnít really help that they donít really take advantages of the location anyway. You get one brief scene in the city itself, which is really cool and interesting to look at, but the majority of the finale (and time spent there in Infinity War) takes place in a nondescript field. It kind or reminds me about the story of how Guillermo Del Toro included all of these minute details in Hellboy, like little dried frogs in Rasputinís robo-glove, in order to make the world feel more lived-in, even if a lot of attention wasnít given to them. But the difference is that stuff was actually utilized to itís fullest in that case. You can tell a lot of artistic energy went into Wakanda, but so little of it is presented up on the screen. I mean, itís like, lab, field, Tron mine.

Yeah, for a movie who's designers clearly did a shitload of work, very little of that work is used to tell us anything about Wakanda aside from 'in Africa, has cool poo poo, has a dumb way of determining who's in charge'
