We’re back, baby! For the first time in a few months, the crew gathers together to discuss the latest movie out of DC Comics, Joker. But lo, this movie is not all fun and games, and neither is this review. Join Kris, Raph, Brent and Ian as we dissect the film, and try and understand just what exactly Todd Phillips was trying to accomplish with this piece of cinema.
