I’m not sure what to think about this movie, I almost certainly will watch it at some point, no matter what the reviews, but I can’t say I expect it to be that great. Hopefully I’m pleasantly surprised.

Did I read correctly that this does not take place within the current DC cinematic universe?

Correct, it's basically the first in a proposed series of 'one offs' that will have a much lower budget

My god DC movies are a joke lately (pun intended). I know this isn't part of the DCEU but ever since the Dark Knight trilogy ended, [Wonder Woman aside] it just seems that DC is doing its best to imitate Marvel's success.

Please be good.

yeah the trailer really hooked me. it actually reminded me a lot of the film Her, but WP just gives that vibe to a lot of his films.

I also think he was an unexpected but very good choice for this sort of role. This may be a comic based movie that I can actually convince my wife to go see.

I somehow just realized that this is going to be directed by Todd Phillips.

Now, I am not sure about what to think about it.

While the trailer provides an interesting take on the Joker, it sure doesn't make him out to be some criminal mastermind.

It's the Joker's origin story...not a movie about his exploits as far as i can tell.

They have said they aren’t really using any plot points from any specific comic, but this whole talk show angle sure makes me feel like they could be using a Joker event from The Dark Knight Returns

im pretty sure the controversy rjrumfel is speaking of is SEEING THE MOVIE IN A THEATRE. families of the Aurora shooting victims are hella worried cause they think someone will do it again.

but you should def go see it.


also, how bad do you think jared leto feels when all these other guys who play joker are lauded as amazing performers, and hes just a fucking joke, no pun intended

I agree with this review 100%

Phoenix is great in it, but everything else about it is just kind of ok

I haven't seen King of Comedy or, to my shame, Taxi Driver, which possibly colors my feelings on the movie. People who are familiar with those films call Joker derivative of them and dislike them accordingly.

Since I haven't seen those and am coming to this relatively fresh, I quite liked this movie. Phoenix does a phenomenal job and it is well-shot. Predictable? Yes. Do the other characters kind of fade into the background? Also yes, though I think that makes sense for a movie about a mentally ill loner who essentially lives trapped inside his own head.

Several reviewers have said that there's no point or message to Joker, but I think it does a good job of taking the "forgotten angry white male" populist concept and painting it as a perverse tumor on society (One could go farther and say that a semi-literate, strangely-colored lunatic with dangerous delusions inspiring a movement of disaffected, ignorant people sounds, well, familiar). The problem is that the angry white male populists who see it won't see that, they'll see Joker as a hero. I'm sure some nut will eventually shoot a bunch of people dressed as Joaquin Phoenix in this movie for that reason.

I watched it, and I enjoyed it. It's not great, but it's pretty good. Joaquin was amazing. I'll watch it again.

I can see the comparisons to Taxi Driver and the similarities to King of Comedy... I need to go back and watch that, it's been 15+ years.

the more time that’s passed since I watched it, the less I like it

just too dark for the sake of being dark

Joaquin Phoenix deserves to be nominated for Best Actor, tho

first half of the movie was great. Did a good job of making you feel something for the joker and his background, although he is still crazy. His laugh was eerie. I cringed when he went on stage for his comedy routine.

his appearance on the talk show was weird. I was behind the motivation of him going to kill himself. But was surprised when all the sudden he got the confidence/anger to go on his rant. Did he get inspired by seeing all the people dressed up like him?

I was confused when the woman was into him, and liked the twist that he was living in his own head.

Would have liked him to just go straight crazy at the end when he was in the cop car and somehow caused the cops to crash instead of being saved accidentally by the ambulance. Started off really strong, not quite as strong at the ending, but a very enjoyable (and very dark) movie.

Yup. Spoiled. MORE SPOILERS.... Though, I would have much preferred for Arthur to actually be his son. Seriously, this would have been a damn near perfect motivation for Joker to hate Batman for the rest of his life. It's possible, but the movie implied it wasn't true.

I didn't like this as much as I thought I would. I now understand what all the reviews meant by it being nihilistic and pointlessly dark. Joker isn't an antihero. You can't root for him. It's not fun. It's just cringey. Especially his guest appearance.

I was expecting more of a mad genius, but beyond being socially clueless and deranged he's also plain dumb.

I guess if the goal of the film is to make you feel super fucking uncomfortable, grats?

Also this seems kinda shit https://twitter.com/moviesandcats/status/1184747879426068480

I liked it and agree that Phoenix should get a Best Actor nomination - he was phenomenal. I liked how dark and unapologetically violent it was. Although it makes you super uncomfortable, I thought that was necessary. I don't see how people don't see a message in this movie, the entire theme is basically we fail to understand and treat mental illness.
