No monkeys were killed on screen. But a multiple convicted paedophile, who, based on previous form, will likely bugger off to another country where he can molest more children, will receive a load of money to enable him to do so, is, via their music, in the film..

I actually think thatís worse, but thatís me.

========================================================

James, I agree 100%. That was a choice the film makers made to include music by Gary Glitter in this movie.

That decision alone just shows how out of touch everything is here.

Excuse me but I thought Gary Glitter was jailed.

If so and even if he was just sentenced to jail and fled the country, isn't there a chance his money his blocked, at least his royalties?

Yes, in 2015 Gary Glitter was sent to prison in Britain for 16 years. He's still there and at his age will quite possibly die before becoming eligible for release.

It has been reported this weekend that Glitter will not receive any royalties.

Perhaps they could donate them to a charity instead.

Logically it should be given to his victims as a compensation.

Yes, I too have now read that he personally will receive no money. Which is good.

I do still think the licence holders should either
A) refuse all requests to licence his music, or
B) as David says above, give all royalties to his confirmed victims.

Neither will happen.

Are you sure?

I mean...In France when you're guilty and must give compensation to your victims, the money you get can be seized.

I donít think the copyright holder would be mandated to give those royalties over, no - they didnít commit the crime.

Further, those earnings came after the crime.

So I doubt that would be the case

That's weird but Ok.


Let's talk about the movie then.

I saw it and really liked it. I have difficulties to connect it to Batman in comics of course but also in movies (if you found Nolan's Batman trilogy was dark...well...).

I found it interesting in the way it connects with some society problems.

Also I don't think it gives excuses to a killer. It just shows how monsters can grow in the fringe of society where nobody really care about them.

Just my opinion of course.
