    Joaquin Phoenix is going to act the shit out of a dark, character drama for two hours. I’m failing to see the downside here.

    The downside is that there have already been 7 movies derived from this children's comic. Apparently it's too much to ask to come up with a new, original character.

    If it’s great acting, great directing, etc., does it matter?

    Look, I’m with you on this all-star cast monstrosities with the comic books, but these character-driven dramas like this are excellent films.

    A Star Is Born is the fifth version of it. It doesn’t make it a bad movie.

    It's called an archetype and it's an awesome way to show an interesting narrative and character study. This character is no different than a criminal character study in any other movie, he just happens to live in Gotham City and wear clown makeup. Its the oldest type of literary and now cinematic formula that is based on 12 common traits of people and how they divide into freedom, ego, social, and order ethos. You focus too much on the setting and name instead of the underlying mechanics of the story and you will miss out on some cool shit that is as deep as an Terrance Malick film without the pretentious boring stuff.

    Now granted for every deconstructed comic book movie there are 5 mind-numbing action fests that are simple good vs evil, but you can't dismiss any story because of the facade if the mechanics are sound. I'd argue if they took out The Joker title and just made it a movie about a guy slowly going mad in modern society it would basically be a modern take on Taxi Driver.

    Don't you lecture me about archetypes! I can dismiss whatever the **** I want!

    ...

    I'll watch the damn movie - but you should all know that I'll do it grudgingly and am not happy about it!

    YAY! I have a whole thing about whether you though Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was a "superhero" movie that I was going to write 5 paragraphs on, so thanks!
