    It won a prestigious European film prize (for what it's worth), the Leono d'Oro of the Venice film festival (the Golden Lion). it's more of a festival for art house movies, so it's surprising - and telling - that 'Joker' won this year

    gonna go see it with a buddy at the end of the month

    A lot of the reviews are saying this is a pretentious rip off of King Of Comedy, one of my favorite films. They got DeNiro to basically play the Jerry Lewis character. I notice that Scorsese isn't involved anymore either.

    Does Robert deniro have some form of dementia? He seems legit crazy right now.

    It definitely pays homage to some older De Niro movies.
    I actually didn't like De Niro's character too much. He didn't look convincing and he was only there to make a point.

    Joaquin is a phenomenal Joker though. On par with Heath Ledger. Absolute nut case.

    Hopefully they leave this movie alone now and keep it a standalone origin story. Nothing can be done to add to this story.

    Most people say it is a chronicle of a man slowly descending into insanity. I think that sounds good on a psychological level. Some people are complaining that there is not enough action, but they heard it was a comic book movie and probably expected miles long, high speed vehicle chases and the final battle to be an engagement of super weapons. This is a deeply cerebral movie, so those people definitely went into it with the wrong mentality. I will check for it in the coming weeks.

    They expected marvel antics. Nah this ain’t marvel, this is DC , a well rounded company when it comes to the psyche and intensity of its characters . This is more art house, just how i love em

    Yeah, D.C. is slowly but surely stepping up their live action game. Their goofy, dorky perception is starting to evolve into more serious, well thought out material.
