Joaquin has the Oscar IN THE BAG!!! A truly amazing performance! I know no one who doesn’t like this amazing piece of cinema! 5 solid stars!!
“Joker” centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
I cannot rate this film highly enough!
I have to say I was really indifferent about this film before watching it. However, once the film started I was drawn in, hooked and spellbound. What an incredible film and performance!
Can’t wait to see this again!
This was definitely a dark twisted tale of jokers origins I thought it was brilliant but the last 30-40 minutes of the movie were brilliant
Well as good as the acting is that is to be expected of an experienced actor. The problem is I hoped he would win best actor but unfortunately winning a bafta Which he claims is institutionally wrong makes a big complaint then accepts the award thusly by doing this endorses the institution that he disagrees with!
This is easily the best comicbook film to come out in time. That doesn’t say much but when even compared to all films this is a quite good one. Dark and enjoyable. Certainly worth taking a chance on it.
There are two very loud little groups of people who will tell you it’s either the worst film ever or the best film ever purely based on their extremist ideology. The film is neither. It’s just good. The higher end of good but still, it’s not the second coming. Nor is it awful.
Slow burner that gets going at the end. Felt let down after all the hype... Rent, don’t buy.
Good film but really wouldn’t watch it more than once
Totally brilliant film !!! ... it will be an an absolute joke .... if Joaquin Phoenix does not get the Oscar for best actor !! The guy is outstanding!!
Really liked this, intense mad brutal yeah
This film blew me away! Not-at-all what I was expecting from Todd Phillips who I previously felt was only capable of making forgettable bromance movies. Phoenix gives an astounding performance and I both long for a sequel and pray that one never comes to pass. One of my favourite films for sure!
Just wow, what a dark and moving story, which is very twisted, could watch it over n over
I’ve now watched this film 4 times since it’s iTunes realise on the 27th jan! What a master class in directing and acting. It doesn’t even feel like a DC film it’s that well done! Please do a joker 2 but keep it the same style! Amazing! DC need to do more R rated movies imagine a batman R rated with this Joker! Wow! One can dream!
Unfortunately Joaquin Phoenix is just playing for the Oscars, it is way too obvious, by the way he probably will get it as well. His arm movements, his forceful laugh everything could be more natural if he was a bit more relaxed, Robert De Niro is an amazing actor but in this movie he is letting his guard down and just playing the script. The movie itself is not only dark it is depressive by using mental health issues but the whole plot is really not believable. I have seriously mix feelings about this movie. I suggest you rent it before you buy as I bought it and I am very sure I won’t be watching it again.
It is most refreshing that art, originality, creative courage and non-conformity is still allowed and actually rewarded in this day and age where filmakers are expected to only operate in a narrow corridor of opinion and allowance.
This film is a must see.
Watched this on Monday when came out on iTunes. TBH it was fairly shallow and didn't really say much. Without spoilers, basically very damaged people do bad things. No great insights. Great acting from JP, but otherwise, just dark, sad, and lacking any real depth - other than the depth of sadness one sees in JP's Joker. Could have done so much more with this.
Heath Ledger captures the Joker in his prime whereas Phoenix captures him in his birth. A very dark character study (just happened to be the Joker). Catches the mood and depression of a tormented soul destroyed by a society that does not care.
Absolutely Classic loved it
A rollercoaster of human emotion dark and tragic brings the hard realities of life and serves it up cold.If your a me myself and I person it won’t appeal.Masterful acting.
This film is an absolute must, it really gets you thinking from the Joker’s point of view.
One of the best movies you will ever see, Jaoquin Phoenix is flawless!
Just brilliant, film of the year
A truly incredible film full of dark twist and turns that keep you watching till the end.
Very very dark
if im honest this movie is absoloutley brilliant, really makes you think along with a really enjoyable and interesting storyline
This is not a super villain movie; i imagine it's a take on what could potentially happen in real life to an unfortunate soul. Centred on Arthur (aka Joker) who struggles with his mental health, you witness the character develop by events which cause his illness to get out of hand and change him into Joker.
Origin of the Clown Prince of Crime in Gotham City, and the director and main lead just nailed it. Joaquin Phoenix was so good in this.
Best film ever but a bit sad
Fantastic film, great story. Ordered
This film has a dark look at the world around us but it’s said in a way that’s just pure brilliance. Well worth a watch
A real life insight to what a life of loneliness and hurt can do, emotional and gripping within every second, I remember watching it in the cinema and not saying a single word. Superb. My favourite movie.
A highly emotive and well executed drama led by one of the finest actors of the past 20 years.
I thought that joker is a fantastic film and one of the best films of 2019 and Joaquin Phoenix is amazing
This is the exact and very accurate drama of a dark side of some of us.
Mental illness is a real issue and this will highlight how difficult it can be for many.
This will win many Oscars in February 2020...
A bore fest , to me it was just a negative experience , woe is me film. Fell asleep it was that boring unnecessarily long and miserable. should really have asked for a refund.
Once in a while, there comes along a film where everything; all the pieces that make up the layers: the score, the cast, the direction, the lighting, the writing, the subject, the story, the lead all come together to make one masterpiece of cinema. This is one. Enjoy it. It’s total brilliance.
I enjoyed this film... but overall- NOTHING REALLY HAPPENS???
It was visually stunning by Joaquin and Robert and it Should of been An 18 not a 15
I’ve seen this about 4 times now - and it still takes me on a journey every time.
Phoenix has done one hell of a job in this Breath taking film!
Dark, depressing, gritty and harshly cold. Best film of the year hands down !
Believe the hype ! Watch it!
Watched this late last night at about 1am and was only gonna watch 10 mins but it’s fair to say it hooked me in, very dark in places and not as violent as I was expecting but what a performance from J Phoenix,top drawer,it reminded me so much of Taxi Driver both very similar dealing with mental health and even the way it was shot around New York, my only criticism is it was a tad short and could have done with at least another 1/2 hour
A true masterpiece of cinema
I like the
way that is made because Before and I still now from Sukhjot
Personally i found it all average at best, It just didn’t grab my interest at all.
The story behind the joker wasn’t upto much and it just gave joker a bit of a softer type character and lacking the intelligence seen in some of the events the Joker had in the Batman movies.
Once it’s released on iTunes i wouldn’t buy it whatever price it got reduced too.
it was a good movie if you dont mind putting ourself through some of the most terrifying and uncomfortable scenes
