MALEFICENT –VS- THE JOKER

MALEFICENT –VS- THE JOKER


I have been amazed at the turmoil caused by ‘the violence’ of THE JOKER, while the new MALEFICENT film is just awaiting in the wings and many say it is just a great children’s film.

I have recently seen both THE JOKER and MALEFICENT (1).

THE JOKER is by far not the most violent movie recently made! It does give a more humane look at ’the why’ of the actions of the Joker.

The evil fairy, MALEFICENT (who, it seems in most reviews is not evil … but vengeful) is far more violent than the Joker. The Joker does seem to kill without regard human life, that is a given. Maleficent, on her side of evil, plunges her entire kingdom into darkness.

Adults, while they hopefully will not condone the Jokers behaviors, will have a deeper understanding at what drove him to be a sociopath.

Children are supposed to forgive and forget the desolation and deaths caused by the vengeful- but very sane- Maleficent because she kisses the princess in the end? Oh well, a few dead beings and a desolate kingdom, but I am a grand fairy godmother now because I saved the princess.

Just food for thought????
