    In retrospect, Joker was just an OK movie

    People were losing their sh!t over this movie, but in reality it was just another cookie-cutter hollywood film with mediocre writing, but carried by an exceptional performance by Joaquin Phoenix and good cinematography

    Only reason it blew up was because it rustled the hard left, and was a breath of fresh air from the capesh!t movies which have saturated the market for the last 10 odd years

    Strip away the comic book references, and it would just have been known as that taxi driver clone.

    I can think of at least 5 films that came out this year better than Joker, and deserving of move recognition

    Fight me

    It was a mental health documentary, not a Joker movie.

    Good acting, good cinematography but overall it was horribly slow and boring.

    You can't discount that. Almost all great movies are a commentary on society. He hit the nail on the head and the usual suspects lost their chit

    It was good in that it took advantage of social trends to capture and audience and make them think the movie was better than it was, just like Black Panther.

    It's a character study. Those are as good as the acting/writing. And Phoenix killed it. Acting/score/visuals were all top tier. Writing was as good as it needed to be. Was it particularly original or mind blowing? Not really but you also need to compare it to all the other garbage Hollywood is churning out.

    I hated it I spent the whole movie waiting for some crazy heath ledger joker thing to happen like the beginning of batman with the bank robbery. To me it just felt like some middle aged man who had mental issues who spiralled out of control not the psychopath which was ledgers joker.

    the main actor was great... everything else kinda left a lot to be desired. They overdid it with the melodramatic violin music. Kinda depressing when you realize there are a lot of people that actually live that way in regards to dead end jobs stuck living the life of an invalid. In times gone by that was just life. Now due to technology it is in their face and they realize how much more there is to life and they aren't going to be happy being forever alone minimum wage slaves.

    Thats because the misc hates Incels. The film touches on isolated white males, mental health and societal problems.. It was better than that POS Endgame. Just a bunch of heroic twats covered in cgi telling stupid jokes while getting there asses beat. Actually come to think of it ,CBM last year were generic and predictable as ****. Joker at least tried something different and may pave the way for DC villains to have a Two face , Riddler version etc
    Quinn: [babbling] Deak, I don't think you understand, I mean, this dude is ****ing bad! Like, he's - he's like, he had twenty guys around him - I was there, man! He's got **** he throws at you, like-like the sword...
    Deacon Frost: Yeah, he's got the sword, and ****...
    Quinn: Exactly.
    Deacon Frost: Yeah, he can throw it in the air...
    Quinn: He's got like the **** that he throws...
    Deacon Frost: Catch it underneath...
    Quinn: Exactly...
    Deacon Frost: Yeah - SHUT THE **** UP!

    Say what you want about it but it was a masterpiece when it came to actually showing what mental illness really is and how it affects your everyday life. See not everyone is born lucky to have no issues with their brain

    the scenes coupling with the music was honestly well done
    Mental health really is the most important aspect in your everyday life, don't ever neglect it and if you're feeling down, reach out to someone and ask for it. If you need help, don't hesitate to reach out. Let's have a chat.

    I can agree with this, but from an entertainment standpoint, I wasn't interested.

    I'm currently at a half chub but if they don't puss out and make him lethal in the sequel and fighting Batman, instead of the same movie again, I'll be rock hard.

    Main actor carried the entire show from start to finish. Plot is rehashed taxi driver, but acting is on an entirely different plane of existence. No one other than Joaquim can pull off the intense close up facial shots. Its like you can feel his suffering through the screen. That man in a one of a kind talent.

    Wouldn't appeal to the NPCs who like regular superhero movies, but I suspect a lot of the box office results are backlash against the extreme left.

    It neither sucked, but nor was it a cinematic masterpiece as many are quick to point out either

    It was simply a reasonably good film that came out in the right place at the right time, but overblown by spectacular proportions

    It was at least as good as Taxi Driver, which was one of the best of all time.

    I found the movie to be very slow. And then at the end it's like... is this it?
    This was all the hype? I don't get it.

    Everyone was also talking how incels would turn more violent because of this movie.
    But the joker wasn't even an incel. He was getting poosay. Dramatic media and people overhyping the movie as they always do.
    Cobra Kai never dies!

    I didn't think it was anything special. It's probably popular because of the high number of incels today. I thought Ledger's and Nicholson's performances were better.

    My brother is a doctor, and he has an extensive background in neuroscience. He was actually mad at the movie. (Granted he is a lib and hates incels.) But he complained that it gave the impression that people who were abused or depressed become violent. This is usually not the case. He is right. When you look at people like Elliot Rodger vs ppl like me, there are far more like me than him. We don't hurt people mainly because we aren't narcissistic or sociopathic (at least not to the same extent as he was). ER was in a different world of self absorption and entitlement. This is often the case when you look at spree and serial killers. They aren't just abused, sad, and angry. They also have an extremely grandiose sense of self over others to where they will kill other people. They have a very limited capacity for empathy. My brother's point was that there was a disconnect between Joker the mass murderer and Joker the depressed guy. All of us rooted for the depressed guy.

    Many incels can understand the subway shootings and killing the ahoel who tried to frame him with the gun, for example. We might even cheer him on. But few of us would understand him murdering the comedian over an insult or the therapist later. Most of us don't want to believe he killed/raped the woman and her daughter, but he probably did. This is the disconnect. Joker isn't exactly an honest portrayal of mental illness because men like Joker aren't entirely made. They are born. Their minds are far less capable of empathy than ours. As much as I hate this society, I still feel terrible when I hear about war, starvation, etc. Joker wouldn't. Joker would feel ABSOLUTELY nothing or even happy about it. It's something so alien to normal people that they have to invent a fiction where these people are created rather than that they literally have something wrong with their brains. The abuse and traumatic stimuli make it worse, but it's always there. If these types of people are raised in loving homes and admired by others, they become sadistic kinds of bullies who maybe aren't as brutal, but are selfish and untrustworthy. Some even become successful. But they are all still very different mentally. Some still kill anyway. Look at Dahmer, for example. Dude had a pretty good childhood supposedly.

    Mental illness is something that is truly horribly misunderstood. The science isn't there yet to really tease out what is actually going on. One day, if we learn more about how the brain works, we'd be able to evlauate and possibly treat these things very effectively.
