Thats some pretty hardcore stuff
That would be more hardcore than what this movie offers
Yeah, no way Reeves and Mr Sparkles would make a movie like this. Even if DC had the balls to chance it.
Wouldn't Pheonix's Joker be like almost 70 by the time Batman is ~30 though?
i always thought dc should have gone ultra dark to fight mcus non seriousness and not try to copy them
(their comics are darker anyway)
It has actual feelings and an Oscar worthy performance. There were no unrealistic obviously scripted quips. It was a real movie, in the style of real movies.
That's the point; he's dying anyway. He just wants to live long enough to burn Batman's soul and piss on the ashes...
IMDB has it ranked #9 overall in the top 250. With close to 80K votes.
For fucks sake people, the early rankings and shit on imdb, rotten tomatoes eventually even themselves out and become more realistic.
Watched it today. Thought it was great. Phoenix was brilliant, the cinematography was beautiful and the use of sound and music to set the tone both caused feelings of uneasiness and humor at time.
Only movie I've seen at the cinema this year. Was not disappointed.
It took a massive shit on all the fucking stupid super hero movies and laughed along the way.
But I guess cause it doesn't have a connected universe or Saturday morning cartoons it must not be as good as captain cape man: green screen extravaganza 4
I though the last scene was unrealistic as fuck.
Murray finding out that this guy is the cold-blooded killer everyone has been looking for showed the same level of emotion as if Joker told him he likes his steak well done and with ketchup. And then suddenly he turns into Tom Brokaw and tries to do a serious, hard-hitting interview? Yuuuuck. And the "what do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a society that abandoned him" line?
Boooo. The ending stunk.
I've settled for an 8/10 like DLX.
It's a character study film and almost all it needs I Joaquin.
If the other pieces were better I would have rated higher.
well crafted as a film in of itself, some clever comic tie ins for joker character like the weird dancing with the kicks and the flower weeping in the opening scene after he got rekt by the squad, but way too many scenes of the dancing like wtf we get it he dances weird, overall I gave it a 7 because I felt like they could have made Joker more powerful by the end of the movie and I find the plot twist they used with the mental illness is cliche at this point, good movie and was entertaining with a few lulls
Saw it last night, really good. 8/10.
Nice take on the Joker. JP was amazing.
Only part I didnt like was the towards the end with Dr Niro. Kind of killed the realismr for me.
I would have written in some kind of plan for the show. Joker hangs with highly powered foes because he ends up diabolical. I would have written in a stolen canister of nitrous from a dentist office that he gasses deniro with to make him laugh uncontrollably, or some tear gas stolen from police if their happened to be a riot going on. The end should have been a more intricate plan. As I've said repeatedly (sorry I've mucked up the thread a little) the movie flowed perfectly until the show.. Some people may even like that scene, but I would have had him really turn into the joker there. What he did still could have happened, but it should have been accompanied by something, and he should have laughed after doing it.
I do write, and that was the only scene I think I could have improved.
Wow this movie absolutely shit on marvel
That's a bit... too... hardcore for me...
Pretty sure most Batman fans (casual movie goers) wouldn't like this too much either. There's something about a top tier superhero losing in the end that probably won't sit well with a lot of people.
Wrong. If done right, it would make for a better ending. There's generally going to be some redemption somewhere, but Joker actually changes everything.
Voted 10/10. I thought this movie was fantastic, as did my wife who also voted 10/10. Not gonna justify my vote, it is what it is.
I can see why people would vote lower and why some people wouldn't even like this movie. I understand that.
It's hilarious how much this opinion and your avatar fit together.
Just out of curiosity, how old are you and your wife?
