On this episode of Geeks Out, the team turns a critical eye on the new Joker film raking up accolades at the Venice Film Festival, and ask; does this age need another film about a disillusioned white man taking his anger out on others?

Then, Miranda went a bit batty with her view on DC’s animated Batman: Hush, and had a giggle over the seven issue comic mini-series The Batman Who Laughs.
Plus, Clayton reviewed not just one, but two films called Escape Room – both with the same plot!
