cool we’ve lost dump to the 4chan incels
Cool you’ve miscontrued the point again
It’s not you, it’s me. I just don’t get into anxious energy on film.
I appreciated the movie for what it was but if it wasn’t called “Joker” I would’ve turned it off.
It was more depressing than “Leaving Las Vegas”. Halfway through that movie I was like we all know where this is going so let’s just get there already.
I wasnt a huge fan but it was fine. I think my real distaste comes from the group of people who latched onto that movie. There is plenty of media like that where the actual thing is fine but the fans are the worst. The joker and its "we live in a society, man!" incel corp are pretty obnoxious sometimes
Doing sequels to this movie is dumb as shit and makes 0 sense in the context of the ending of the film
I watched it on a plane and fell asleep (probably more due to booze than the movie), finally watched it for real a few weeks ago and your first sentence kind of sums it up.
It's not a bad movie, it's stapling a much worse version of Taxi Driver onto Batman. The best I can say is it's ok.
What do you mean?
What parts of the movie were real and what parts were his delusions? I’d argue the climactic killing spree on the TV show never actually happened just like his other delusion of being on that show. How am I supposed to believe this whiny, anorexic momma’s boy is some formidable villain in the context of a larger universe?
This should always have been a one-off.
It's not a good movie, and it thinks its audience has a room temperature IQ. Fucking everything has to be thrown in your face as explicitly as possible.
I mean, have you been following the mass shooters in this country?
Have you lived in this country?
Life is depressing
get used to it
Comparing the Joker in Batman’s universe to mass shooters is a huge stretch.
Yeah, I mean, I'm really not going to be able to engage in this universe shit, so I will dip out.
I’ll throw you a bone here. The Joker in the context of this movie is comparable to what you are saying.
The Joker of which the overwhelming majority of people know him is not comparable to a mass shooter.
Saying there’s going to be two more movies leads to believe they’re going for this joker to be like the ladder.
I can see a true super villain emerge from being inspired by this Joker. Much like the Jokerz from Batman Beyond.
It perfectly sets up Joker as the character he is in the comics. He can now directly obtain control over his own army of followers to wreck havoc and start doing actual crimes.
Except the recurring theme that they beat over your head throughout the movie is that anytime someone likes or is supportive of him or finds him to be charming he’s delusional and imagining it so the people in the streets rising up in protest dressed in clowns are figments of his imagination.
he isn’t. He isn’t The Joker. He is the inspiration for the eventual Joker.
Except they’re trying to bring Joaquin back for the sequels
I have no idea about movies that haven’t been written yet. So going off of what we have it’s clear that he isn’t The Joker. I’ll withhold judgement about the future films when they come out. All I can do is discuss what we have. I enjoyed the movie but I like Taxi Driver 1000 time more.
You keep saying that because a Bruce is just a kid, but Bruce was just a kid in Keaton’s Batman when the baddie that would become the Joker killed his parents. He’s the Joker.
And the fact we see him running in Arkham with blood on his feet at the end so he is violent and the murder spree happened. Phillips said the laugh at the end when he was taking to the person in Arkham is the only time he actually laughs at something in the film.
I am gonna watch it again but you’re wrong
if we absolutely must create sequels for a joaquin phoenix vehicle it would be better for everyone if it were a freddie quell trilogy
Agree that there’s no way JP’s joker can become THE joker.
Sequels with him are lame
And though his performance was great, movie was boring AF
hope he turns it down
And fight club wasn’t?
I wouldn't say so
Fincher is absolutely correct.
Love the finch man
Either would I but I wouldn’t say that a joker either
Oh god Fincher.. Go get your face fucked..
The 49ers sure sucked today mb711
I enjoyed it. Thought it was well done and Phoenix knocked it out of the park. A very dark film; not the Joker we have come to know through Batman though. Definitely not what I expected. Wouldn't mind a sequel.
nice first post TheShartGuy
Has anyone watched it on HBO Max?
It's obvious they cut scenes or shortened some. It was very noticeable. I just found that weird.
Why would anyone want to watch this a second time
I'm guessing they liked it enough to watch it a second time
It was a pretty good movie.
Gonna pop in Requiem for a Dream and We Need to Talk About Kevin right after and have a nice little afternoon!
I’ve watched worse movies more than once.
I’ve watched Iron Man 3 like 214 times
Great movie and great soundtrack
