An Open Letter to The Killing Joke Movie: But For Reals Tho You Wet Trash

Brittany Williams:
Sooooo, I’m gonna just get right to it. The Killing Joke movie was trash, bruh. Straight, flaming, dumpster outside the 24-hour McDonald’s at 4am in the high heat of summer trash. Bourbon Street the morning after Mardis Gras: a hot garbage, piss, and vomit cocktail. We know. We watched it. That’s time in my life I’m never gonna get back. Bruce Tim owes you, me, Kevin Conroy, Tara Strong, and Mark Hamil an apology for this movie. It’s upsetting me and my homegirl cause if you can’t go to the DCAU, where the hell can you go? We can’t let this slide, beloved, so get ready to take these “L’s”.

*Spoilers galore*

*Sets timer*

You worse than a hot ice cream sandwich.
You worse than an Iggy Azalea freestyle.
You worse than the costumes in Ninja Turtles 3.
You worse than a port-o-potty at the end of Coachella.
You worse than Sleepy Hollow Season 3.

You worse than watching your girl bang your dad.
You worse than ramen noodles cooked in hot dog water.
You worse than a bag full of potato chip crumbs.

*Voice booms in from the distance*
“New high score! You’ve unlocked the roasting daily double!”

Omar: The Killing Joke was a Lifetime movie for meninist.
The Killing Joke was a lesson on feminism from the Insane Clown Posse.
The Killing Joke was filmed in a live studio dumpster.
The Killing Joke was a power point presentation on the correlation between trash and craisins.

The Killing Joke is a Batgirl story my fucking chucks,
this shit is what happens to a positive woman character deferred.
This shit is the feeling you have when you get 20 piece chicken nuggets but the cashier only gives you ONE sweet and sour sauce packet.

    It feels like a misogynist wrote a movie to try to appeal to a female audience.

    It’s not a bad movie. Its just a different take on the Batman world. It seem pretty close to the graphic novel. Also it show side of both of them we do not get to see much of.

  • Saraquill

    I applaud your takedown of the movie.
