I'm quite looking forward to seeing it, but will probably wait to stream it at home rather than go to the cinema

I think i will enjoy it, as joaquin phoenix is usually quite good with the dramatics, so i imagine he will have made a very deep and complex character. But I will stream it, as it’s not something I’d watch in the cinema

OneeyedRaven that’s a shame you didn’t get to see it on the big screen. I heard it was really good, but still not enough to get me girl out for a cinema ticket

I think it will be a good film to see in the cinema. I'm planning to see it later this week. I have high expectations.

...I really liked it, but this isn't really a superhero style film. It more about someone with complex mental health issues that has been mistreated and abused his whole life. Who turns to violence after a series of events. It's dark, serious and at times intentionally awkward. I can see why people expecting something like The Dark Knight would be disappointed.

Sounds exactly as I expected and that's what I love about it. ACR

Joaquin's laugh is one of the best for Joker while Jared Leto as Joker sounded like he didn't even try at all.

I refuse to watch films like this, or even close. I believe they can have an effect on fragile minds and we owe it to ourselves not to pollute our hearts and minds with darkness, violence and horror. Yes, I am sure you think I am nutty but a healthy mind needs healthy input, just as a healthy body only remains that way if it is given a healthy diet.

Why, when we delve into the minds of wicked, evil people, do we find a murky past filled with abuse and neglect? Just as Acr has gleaned from the film, just because it is fiction it is no less true in real life. I see the results of neglect and abuse daily in my work.

A lot of the elements on Joker (2019) are in plenty of other Hollywood films. As long as the viewer is mentally stable and can distinguish fiction from reality, he or she can enjoy it as much as anyone else.

That's like saying video games make people go shoot up schools which is something people in their 50-60's tend to do a lot still to this day. Like on the video below.

It's not the fault of the director if a viewer out of millions decides to commit an atrocity, that's the responsibility of the attacker him/herself. We can't live in a society where people blame their incompetency on others as that's an awful route.

Oh, and there was a lawsuit that a "restaurant" (fast food chain) made a woman fat. Haha. She ate at the place and then blamed the fast food chain for it. That's just ridiculous.

I have heard it is worth seeing. If you get a Lloyds current account you are eligible to receive 6 free Vue cinema tickets and I’m sure there are a few other ways to nab free cinema tickets - so you don’t feel your money has been wasted if you don’t enjoy it!

My cousin went and said that it was awful! She would have walked out but her husband was having a nap!

The review ACR gave of it is very accurate from what my cousin told me. Not a film for me.

Just watched it. This film is a masterpiece of cinema, and art in itself.

The following I'm gonna say might be spoiler-ish, so you may want to avoid it or not.

'Joker' is the origins story of Gotham's favorite villain, but despite that, most of the time through the film you'll see a man who deals with depression and instability as society/humankind have destroyed him mentally, and from it he learns to live with it. Not the most ideal way, though.

You know, the neighbor (the young woman with a kid) which we see on the trailer she's only seen on the film for not a whole lot and they don't even have a relationship. They do make out once, but after that she tries to steer clear away from him.

By the way, some online outlet reviewers are calling this film "racist", "white nationalist" and all those nonsensical buzzwords people use nowadays. Joaquin Phoenix is European-Jewish and the neighbor woman is mixed (mostly African but with some European DNA — specifically German) so neither of those claims are correct and "white" is a skin color, not a race. A lot on the web love to talk about race, but they always end up calling "white" this and "black" that so I don't even bother.
