Eminem as Joker

May. 18, 2009by: James Thoo
Thankfully, not in a BATMAN movie... But in the liner notes on his upcoming album. 'RELAPSE' hits tomorrow, and I caught an interview with him the other day in which he said being in rehab he inspired him to revisit an interest in comic books, so that might be where this comes from. Of course, he's doing a run in The Punisher too, which we reported last week. Although, it might also just be his thing for randomly using different pieces of pop culture. Who knows why this guy does what he does. You'd have better luck trying to figure out why a gopher or a starfish did something.

Extra Tidbit: Can't believe this dude is only 36. He seems to have been around forever.

Attention all non-rap fans, can you please not post stupid ass insults on every Eminem article on this site.

I guess it is kind of funny when you constantly see something like "Eminem sucks...I'm not a rap fan at all...but this dude sucks bad". Yeah makes a lot of sense.

What mNm does best, is rip off other people melodies, and rap about his daughter. Oh, and bitch about Kim and his Ma. (where's the rolleyes smiley?)

Not being a rap fan... at all... I actually had a bit of respect for this guy once, but that was a long, long time ago.

Comparing Thoo's articles on JoBlo.com to CNN or the BBC....man I love me a bit of Tuesday irony.

Thing is the BBC is a Broadcasting Corporation (the clue is in the name) and it not only provides general news but also specific programme channels for varied content, not all good.

CNN is a News Network which provides general news and correct me if I am wrong but last time I checked, this site is 'The JoBlo Movie Network' which would expect to feature movie related news.

I have been a fan of this site for many years and still am, its a great resource for good fun articles. I have no real beef with the site, and it has some great writers on here; JobLo, Jim Law et al. I just think Thoo is one of the lesser talents on here and is what I would class as a lazy journalist.

But maybe I am wrong.

HAHA!

It's crazy how people get riled up about something as simple and innocent as a news piece. "Oh how is this news, boohoo, this isn't ethical!"...is basically what you're saying because a writer made a typo error and Eminem's business isn't considered movie-related. Here's an idea, why not check out CNN.com? BBC.com, better still. No humor, no wit, just news. And no Eminem probably.

It's The Joker, fellas. C'mon! The Joker? HUGE character? Got Hollywood into a frenzy last year for the sheer

It's The Joker, fellas. C'mon! The Joker? HUGE character? Got Hollywood into a frenzy last year for the sheer performance Heath Ledger gave it? Massive following? Instant landmark portrayal? So HUGE that his absence makes it hard to even make a follow-up that's as good?

I guess those points count, no?

Wow...Ive never seen this kind of uproar over a freaking news post. I dont see how this isnt relevant to the rest of the content on this site. Theres an article about the Joker nearly every month, if not more. This is just another fun random tidbit for all us nerds out there to laugh at..or be mad at.
Give the writer a break. Who gives a shit if something isnt spelt correctly or something isnt typed properly ONE TIME? People make mistakes...this isnt Time magazine...nobodys losing their job

Well said JohnLocke. It pisses me off when people bitch about an article and don't appreciate the work the writers at JoBlo do for us. I love this site and the reason is because of the writers. Yes there are articles I don't care to read but I'm not going to take the time and be rude. So thank you JoBlo for keeping up a great and entertaining web site.

I'm in agreement man.. I've been coming to this site for YEARS and long before movie sites were everywhere; but I've noticed how bitchy it's gotten lately. Every other article has a comment from some jackass telling us "this isn't movies news! NEXT!" or "wow, this author's writing skills r awful!"...Give it a fucking break already.

Hey JoBlo - at least u know u made it big, that's when the haters come out ;)

To RED4:

>>You have to maintain just a slightly higher degree of professionalism with your website.

Pointing out our rules/guidelines is about as PROFESSIONAL as it gets. This isn't a public forum. This is a PRIVATE website with rules to follow, which is what I was pointing out.

>>I mean, WE are your readers. Joblo.com isn't a dictatorship, is it?

Yeah, it's a dictatorship... ;) I love how people get so bent out of shape because I posted 1 COMMENT about the fact that folks seem to be "whining"

Yeah, it's a dictatorship... ;) I love how people get so bent out of shape because I posted 1 COMMENT about the fact that folks seem to be "whining" about the types of articles we write, so suddenly we're a dictatorship...wow. Dude, chill out. You guys ARE our readers, but does that mean that folks can DO and SAY whatever they want? Nope. This isn't a public forum, this is a private website. If you don't like the fact that you can't "whine" about the types of articles we're posting, I'm sure there are 80 BILLION other websites that will allow you to act that way. Most of our readers DON'T WHINE and dig the way we run things.

>> I mean, you DO have the Strike Back feature. We're allowed to use it, right?

Yup, but we have RULES/GUIDELINES to them. Click on the link above that says RULES/GUIDELINES to read them... ;)

>>From what I saw, most of the complaints were about Thoo's grammar and literary typos. So, uh... there you have it.

I wasn't referring to those at all. In fact, if you see spelling errors, the easiest way to help with that sort of thing is to click on the author's name ABOVE and email him (if you REALLY want to help the site). But I was refering to the peeps who were saying that this is "non-news" and "why post this at all". There seems to be more and more comments as such of late, so I'm trying to cut it down. Seems most responses after mine GOT my point. You obviously didn't and feel the need to compare us to a dictatorship.

Good to see you're around JoBlo. Honestly if you guys want straight news go check out Variety, JoBlo gets most of their casting stuff from other sites anyway. The reason I keep coming back is that the writers have a way of finding cool things or writing about something so that it feels like I'm just kicking back and talking flicks with my friends. If you want hard news there are so many other options, so quit bitching about it in the comments.

Eminem is great

Come on, anyone who was in high school or college between '99 and '03 grew up with his music. And the Oscar and Grammy wins and other across the board critical acclaim aren't for nothing. The guy has an incisive wit and is a lyrical genius.
