Film Theory: Joker Is A Billionaire! (Batman The Dark Knight)

Even if the actual number is only 10% of that, that is still a lot of money that was burned, and it took dedication for The Film Theorists to calculate this.

Joker (2019 Film)

What is it?

The 2019 American psychological thriller film Joker.

JOKER – Teaser Trailer – Now Playing In Theaters
JOKER – Final Trailer – Now Playing In Theaters

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

“Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen.

Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society.

A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him.

Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

A Batman: The Killing Joke Quote By My Brother GC

Earlier this week my brother GC and I watched the animated film Batman: The Killing Joke, and there was a scene in the film where The Joker told Batman a joke:

Batman: The Killing Joke Movie Ending

See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum…and one night, one night they decide they don’t like living in an asylum any more.

They decide they’re going to escape!

So, like, they get up onto the roof and there, just across this narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moonlight…stretching away to freedom.

Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem.

But his friend, his friend daredn’t make the leap.

Y’see…y’see, he’s afraid of falling.

So then, the first guy has an idea…He says ‘Hey!

I have my flashlight with me!

I’ll shine it across the gap between the buildings.

You can walk along the beam and join me!’ B-but the second guy just shakes his head.

He suh-says… he says ‘What do you think I am? Crazy?

You’d turn it off when I was half way across!

Nathan (Nate) Fisher Driving A School Bus

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that the end of the dream took place during the day, Nathan (Nate) Fisher from YouTube was driving a school bus with a high school sports team on it (athletes and cheerleaders) down a highway to a sporting event, and the highway somewhat reminded me of the highway and bridge from the city of WL to the city of LC by the beach.

After driving off the bridge to a small exit/road near plants, a cheerleader fell off the school bus, but Nate could not hear or see this because I think that some of the cheerleaders had been hanging onto the outside of the bus; and the cheerleader fell on her feet safely, and she ran behind the bus screaming and trying to catch up.

Fortunately the parking lot for the sporting event was close and so the cheerleader was able to catch up after the bus parked, there were many other sports teams and their coaches arriving, and they heard and saw the cheerleader running and screaming hysterically to the parking lot; and so a few coaches and some athletes followed her to see what was wrong.

The cheerleader approached Nate and he learned what had happened, the coaches and athletes who followed her heard this as well, and the coaches called the police or for help; and so they waited on them to arrive, and then magically I was there and I do not remember seeing Nate anymore.

The athletes with the coaches who followed the cheerleader were some of my former male classmates like my former male classmates AC and PM, I remember talking with them as we waited, and I remember having two jackets/coats with one being my blackish colored pea coat; and I had left them in the driver’s seat of the school bus, and my former classmate AC put one of the jackets on.

I put my pea coat on and then another one of my former classmates started to shock me with static electricity for fun a few times, I remember going to sit in the back seat of a car, and a man who was like The Joker was there with the others and he had a male assistant/follower who looked a bit like maybe a broken/tortured Nightwing who was trying to be like The Joker.

The Joker started attacking me with a stun gun for fun, he was laughing as he did it, and it hurt a bit and it was causing my muscles to weaken and get harder to control; and it was messing with my brain causing me to have a hard time thinking, and I was getting close to loosing consciousness.

He was not going to stop and I was losing control of my muscles and I was close to losing consciousness so I decided to defend myself, I think that someone came to help me as well, but I can not remember what happened; and the next thing that I can remember is something that was like a fictional season of Luther or something that somewhat reminded me of Luther because the actor Idris Elba and Ruth Wilson were in it.

Ruth Wilson was playing an Alice Morgan-like woman or Alice Morgan and her and Mr. Elba seemed to either be an actor and actress going around using disguises and their acting skills to help people and solve mysteries or they were investigators/detectives undercover pretending to be an actor and actress; either way they were trying to help people, and they seemed to be undercover.

They were standing outside during the day, maybe not far from the area where I was and maybe I walked over to where they were, and Mr. Elba was speaking English with an African accent; and him and Mrs. Wilson were trying to help some people, but I can not remember what was happening exactly.

I just know that things worked out in the end, and I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of the city of D, I remember my mom and I standing in a parking lot talking to a male police officer who my mom knew, and some other people.

The police officer had a box of old items from the police station, old clothing (not uniforms) and other things, and he gave some of it to maybe a homeless man; and before my mom and I left by automobile the police officer gave us the box of old stuff for us to keep what we want and give the rest to people in need.

We thanked him and we drove away, later in the day we learned that the police officer who gave us the box of old stuff was dead, and we assumed that one or more other police officers/people had murdered him; and we assumed that it had something to do with the old box of stuff, and we assumed that it possibly contained something that they wanted to keep hidden or have destroyed.

No one had seen him give us the box of old stuff but someone probably saw him give some of the items to the homeless man, if he ended up dead too, we would know that our assumption(s) were correct; and that we were in danger if they found out that we had the box of old stuff.

I woke up as we tried to decide what to do.

The end,

A Cosmopolis Inspired Dream At A Jail

Source: Wikipedia

I got awakened suddenly from a dream during the night thinking that someone had opened the bedroom door and said something to me, so I awakened suddenly probably saying/asking “Huh?”, but no one was there and the door was closed.

I remembered part of one dream but my memory of the dream faded after being awakened suddenly and as I tried to figure out if I had imagined that someone/something had opened the door and said something to me (maybe someone opened a door loudly somewhere else in the house and said something to someone else in the house causing me to wake up), and so now I barely remember part of the end of my last dream.

The dream took place during the day at a fictional jail where the D Jail should be and the dream seemed to slightly be inspired by the movie Cosmopolis, which I watched last night before going to sleep, and the chief of security for the main character in that movie was in my dream protecting another rich man with whitish colored skin who was older than the main character in that movie and his family.

Somehow I went to the jail and I ended up being trapped in a video game-like thing where some prisoners would spawn as villains like The Joker from the Batman movies, and some people would spawn as heroes like Batman and movie characters played by the actor Bruce Willis.

The heroes would get weapons like flamethrowers and they would hunt and kill the villains, and so the villains would have to run/hide/fight back to survive; and when you die you re-spawn again in the jail, and the video game-like thing continued.

I remember spawning as The Joker in a jail-looking part of the building as I saw and heard villains running around, hiding, and being burned to death/killed and re-spawning again; and the rich man, his family, his female assistant, and his chief of security watched in another room at the front of the building.

I remember focusing on running and hiding around the middle part of the building which looked like a nice house with nice carpets and a study/reading room and hallways, and another Joker villain and I hid in the study room until a Bruce Willis character with a flamethrower found us and attacked us burning the other Joker alive.

I ran around dodging his attacks until I reached the hallway but then the flames started burning me and I could not move much, it hurt somewhat, and I burned alive until I died; and I re-spawned in the jail-like part of the building.

I probably died several times and then I somehow became another prisoner who had whitish colored skin but I forgot how he looked and at some point the video game-like thing ended when the rich man called an end to it, and the rich man selected a few of us prisoner to meet him and the others in his group in the room at the front of the building.

His chief of security did not like this but the rich man did not care, the rich man talked to us briefly, and then he selected me and he sent the other prisoners away; and the rich man explained to the others and me that he had chosen me, and he explained a few of the reasons why but it was still not clear why he was choosing me and for what.

It seemed that he noticed that I was not the violent type but I would defend myself and others if necessary and that I was pretty good at it, that I was pretty good at running/hiding/dodging/surviving/making strategies and helping others, that I would probably not harm his family and him, that I was mentally/emotionally/socially/physically stable enough to handle the video game-like thing, et cetera.

Once again his chief of security did not like this and the thought of me being allowed around the rich man and his family and them/him but the rich man did not care, and the rich man showed me video clips and medical data (heart rate, blood pressure, and other physical/mental/emotional measurements/data) about me from when I was in the video game-like thing.

But I woke up before I could make sense of what he was choosing me for and why exactly.

The end,
