Channel Awesome I know I’m late but to be honest... I thought it was ok the beginning really sucks but I thought the actual killing joke was fucking amazing! There for you have yourself an ok film... not bad or good just ok. But I do agree instead of sticking something on the beginning they should have added. INTERNET! GET YOUR FANFIC PENS OUT! AND NO BATGIRL X BATMAN BULLSHIT! MAKE THIS GOOD! Hopefully I didn’t create something worse...

Well the issues I had with the Killing Joke Portion was taking out some important details, for example when Batman passes Two Face’s cell at Arkham you are supposed to see his two halves separated by the Bars, showing the Jekyll and Hyde part of Two Face As well as foreshadowing that Batman and Joker are two sides of the same coin. Also the “Why aren’t you laughing” Speech is very different in the book where he was more disappointed then angry, check out the video made by “jwhit3d” to see what I mean. Also some of the acting is bad like when the Joker is his past self, as well as Batman sometimes talking wooden. Not to mention that the animation budget clearly wasn’t that high. This film is an insult to the original book, and I don’t really care for the original book, but I clearly have more respect for the original book than Bruce Timm.

They added that because it wouldn’t have been long enough to be considered a feature film. If you ask me, that’s a terrible excuse, they could’ve at least had better effects

I watched killing joke and I liked prologue. I'm not into comics AT ALL and I don't know shit about it. Prologue gave me context about this exact universe movie places in, and then threw me into a main story. Yeah, it was clunky, like "hey, man, you shot my friend to disability, but haha, lets be friends, i like yr jokes", but its still pretty good for a comic book movie. Its not the greatest movie, and even not the greatest dc movie, and even not the greatest dc animated movie, but it's entertainning and it holds up it's story almost every time.

The first part could've worked better with Harley (or a proto-Harley) as a foil to Barbra. Like, get (proto) Harley killed, have Barbra react to it and see why Joker AND Batman are bad influences. Then at the hospital scene, have Barbra comfort Batman by telling him that he is better than the Joker. While I'm at it... * Have Jim say "Hi" to Dent as they're walking past his cell. * Have the "WHY AREN"T YOU LAUGHING?" line like in the book to show some sympathy to the ol' clown prince of crime. * Make the Looney song gradually trippy looking.

Panel by panel adaptation? Sure, minus the color and the thought behind it, minus the props and visual metaphors that added to the theme about corruption, and minus the strenght behind all the facial expressions, layout and compositions (and no, its not a matter of detail, but actually capturing the base of images). Like the Ghost in the Shell, it is an adaptation that doesn't seem to get the original, and the first third is only the part where it is more aparent, but far from the only one.

One small nitpick: the Joker song actually was in the Killing Joke comic. Alan Moore was in a band and a songwriter as well and would occasionally use music in ironic ways in his books - such as the first sex scene in Watchmen which didn’t make it into the film. Other than that, you hit it right on the head. The Batgirl stuff doesn’t help the actual story, and if anything, it makes Batman’s motivation different as now she’s more than an old friend to him. And if you simply ignore that, it is just too close to the comic with animation that feels like superhero cartoons from ‘60s to ‘80s, where it was cheap and they tried to make it look as much like the comic as possible, but sacrificed actual animation to do so - making it more of a motion comic than an adaptation. The best way to watch this movie is to not watch it. Skip Batgirl section, pull out The Killing Joke (comic), and look at the sweet Bolland art while Conroy and Hamill deliver the iconic lines for you. It doesn’t particularly help the Killing Joke experience any, but let’s not fool ourselves into thinking the appeal to this cartoon was anything more than seeing the BTAS cast return to deliver some of the best Batman/Joker lines from the darkest Batman/Joker story

Did they copy the first thirty minutes of that batman beyond comic where batman got batgirl pregnant? Sure looks like it. Could have something that connect to the killing joke I mean it’s batgirl and it should be connected not some orihinal bs than do killing joke. That’s a mess

What annoys me is that Batman and Batgirl are a thing occasionally a thing in the comics and yet nobody freaks out about that so that REALLY annoys me so I don't really have a problem with the Batman and Batgirl thing because again it happens occasionally in the comics so yeah

Honestly, if be perfectly happy if they made a live action version of Killing Joke. Not Snyder, not Burton, DEFINITELY not Schumacher. Someone else who has the same love for the comic that would also pan it out better as a film. Hell, Phoenix looks like he's gonna kill it as Joker. Maybe pin him to the script?

If they do an older Joker, they could even ask Mark Hamill to do it in live action. Yes, he doesn't look like how people traditionally envision Joker and all the clown makeup in the world won't change his facial structure but Michael Keaton doesn't look like how people traditionally envision Batman either. That doesn't stop fans from loving him. Furthermore, Hamill actually has an edge over Keaton because people associate him more with the Joker than any other actor, with the possible exception of Heath Ledger. Having him portray an older and more tired Joker who's haunted by a past he doesn't even remember would be one hell of a way to finish a 3 decade long legacy. Hell, get Kevin Conroy to do it in live action too. He actually has a resemblance to Batman and what better way is there to give a respectful last dance for the greatest Batman and greatest Joker? As for who could direct it, Christopher Nolan has already shown he can do a story that draws influence from The Killing Joke so he would probably nail doing the story itself. However, I think he's moved on from Batman since The Dark Knight Rises (which, while not as good as The Dark Knight, is a great movie in its own right) so I don't know if he'd be willing to return. He considers his Batman story to be complete.

I understand the need for the first third, but they could've done something better than sexual tension between Batman and Batgirl. Also, I don't like how they made every Killing Joke scene basically pannel for pannel accurate. It was basically like the book being read to me with animations.

Audiences getting angry over a prologue about Ron Weasley before the first Harry Potter movie would be the same as the Killing Joke because Harry Potter is based on a novel in a line up of seven that takes as long it wants that a film can only take a hour and a half to adapt while a prolongue wouldn't matter because it has nothing to do with it. This would be the same because the Killing Joke is 45 minute read of a comic book that adding a bad prologue would be enough to make people angry because it fills in the theatrical running time. So you're comparison doesn't work

Actually, the song was in the killing Joke, but because it was a comic, all we got were just the lyrics with no sense of melody and a few still images of the Joker dancing. They actually had to write a whole song sequence with the exact lyrics from the comic, which Hamill himself sung!
