Meh.

It's not really a Joker movie since they just decided to make shit up on DC's dime. At least it isn't whatever the fuck that awful Jared Leto movie would have been, I guess. Also, Todd Phillips is a fucking weirdo so I'm guessing this movie is going to have extreme violence for the sake of trying to rile up soccer moms and appeal to edgelords.

I was actually interested in Leto's take if the character had turned out to be not the original Joker but a previous Robin driven mad by Joker. Would have been the only that made it interesting.

Who gives a shit if it's good? DC can barely get anything right and the trainwreck of their continued attempts at a dark comic world coupled with Leto's over the top shit would be amazing for all the wrong reasons. It would probably flop and immediately hit cult status. The only wronger idea I'd want would be to give the role and creative to Crispin Glover.

Maybe with a movie like Skyscraper, a tag will be accurate. I meant they can't do it and be accurate. Obviously. Most films aren't simple enough for 15 words. Nevermind the fact that they're designed to sell not designed to be accurate, hence the comparison to trailers. The people designing them to put assess in seats don't care if the movie is ruined or if the moviegoer gets what they were expecting or hoping for

The traditional Harley wouldn't fit the mood. It'd be like having had her in The Dark Knight. A moodier take on her deserves its own movie. Watching Joker pull Harleen into his vortex of madness could be some real Silence of the Lambs-type stuff. Plus it could even be sequelized with a lesbian romance crime drama Harley and Ivy adaptation. Harley Quinn could've been a good female cornerstone to a more competently developed DC cinematic universe.

with a revised backstory and a truncated character arc. it worked fine for what the movie accomplished, but harley would've been superfluous in that film and in this one. a solo harley movie, harley and ivy, a GOOD suicide squad, or just a batman movie with joker and harley are all better options.

I'm kind of sick of movies trying to make shallow shit deep. The Killing Joke joker was the best because he was just a cartoony fuck that would rather laugh than brood. As much as I liked Heath Ledger's joker I feel like every subsequent joker now is going to try and be gritty-dark and I don't like it. I haven't liked any of the DC movies since Dark Knight so maybe it's just not my thing.

I am stoked as fuck for Batman vs. Ninja Turtles though.

Part of the reason I haven't and probably won't see this is I'm still scarred from the Star Wars prequels. Sorry to invoke them, but I think it's true. Ever since then I can't ever recall paying to see a movie that sought to explain or provide details to the backstory of an iconic character whose biography was hazy beforehand.

Although I also think it's a little ridiculous and a bit of a self fulfilling prophecy, to argue for the other side, Taxi Driver (which is sorta the vibe the trailers for this movie are giving me) did inspire the assassination attempt on Reagan. Considering the world we currently live in, what with the prevalence of mass shootings and one having already been ''joker themed'', it's not a baseless concern

That guy shot up that theater because he was a lonely failson with delusions of grandeur, forced to come to terms with the fact that he wasn't as smart as he thought he was as he was flunking out of his fancy neuroscience degree.

Not because of some comic book clown.

https://www.denverpost.com/2015/09/18/meyer-the-james-holmes-joker-rumor/
>James Holmes was never “the Joker.” He never told witnesses or arresting officers he was the evil and charismatic villain from the Batman comic strip and movies. Yet, this bad rumor born from initial press reports after the July 20, 2012, shooting in an Aurora theater is repeated by national media almost every time Holmes resurfaces in the news.

>The article linked to a 2012 ABC News report with a statement by New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, saying Holmes had called himself the Joker. Kelly’s comment to the press appears to be the origin of this myth. Why the NYPD police commissioner would be in a position to know anything about police activity in Aurora is beyond me.

>“It is not true,” said George Brauchler, the 18th Judicial District attorney, who prosecuted the case. “It is ridiculous,” he said. “Completely unfounded. Some of this stuff. … It gets repeated by so many sources by people doing their research that it just becomes real.” Investigators heard no witness talking about the Joker, he said. And no police officer claimed Holmes called himself the Joker.

>Holmes told a psychiatrist he dyed his hair red because “red suggests bravery.”

>The Joker, by the way, has green hair.

I mean I get it but people blaming television, video games, and other forms of media as to why they would try to kill other people is not really an excuse and it's reductive in diminishing that person's own responsibility for their act of violence when there are other mitigating circumstances to consider. Still, I'd be interested to see if Joker actually does inspire people to do shit like this. Otherwise it'll just be another case of moral panic.

Are people concerned about "cartoon clowns" or are they concerned about being shot in a movie theater? I thought it was the second one.

Don't go to see Rambo, then.

There's obviously no credible threat to going to see Joker otherwise the person(s) making the threats would be in custody. And odds are nothing will come of this and the Army is just warned its troops to be careful because that's what they do all the time and this just got out because it involved a major Hollywood movie.

If you're worried about a shooter at a theater you're probably avoiding theaters altogether and not just specific movies. It's not like a shooter can't walk out of one auditorium and into another (or a bathroom/arcade/lobby/etc). If you're worried about an involuntary celibate white male getting his hands on a firearm and laying waste to a public place then you're probably not going anywhere crowded. If you're a rational person who knows you're gonna go one day, then you do what you must and what you please and don't let the whims of psychos control what you do or where you go.

I think the movie looks alright.

And are instead shitting up the cartoon clown thread, and only the cartoon clown thread.

People are concerned about the movie, its lead character, and its subject matter inspiring the kinds of violence we saw in Colorado during a screening of another Batman movie. And while there are not "credible" threats, pimp violence is always a real threat. The Army memo was not a typical "Security Briefing." The DoD is wise to steer people away, and it's a shame that if a shooting happens at a Joker screening people will bitch and moan about what we could've done to prevent it when warnings are being given loud and clear. The LAPD is not part of a media hype machine. AMC, Regal, and Landmark theaters are all taking steps like banning costumes. Go see the movie if you fucking want, but don't act like people talking about it being about a "cartoon clown" are talking nonsense. How about we applaud authorities for trying to prevent another mass shooting instead of criticizing people for being cautious in a day and age where no establishment is safe from rogue shooters.

When Star Wars: The Last Jedi came out, I got super high in the parking lot first and then during the film, I got super paranoid that a mass shooting was about to happen and was freaking out. In hindsight, I know it was insane stoner-think, but damn, the media does good at worming it's scare tactics into your head. Like, yes, there's a chance a mass shooting will happen at the Star Wars screening I'm at, but it's far less likely than the odds of dying in a car accident. Just add mass shootings to the list of many things that could potentially kill you but 99.999% likely they won't

It's nuaced with the building of tension. The music matches, the lighting helps greatly to set the bi-polar nature of the character. A perfect storm swells as a series of events sets a man off on a journey to find himself. Joaquin absolutely invokes the origins of the clown prince in a very dark knight rises way...literally...you'll see...it'll put a smile on your face XD

Dear everyone:

It has come to my attention that the overwhelmingly popular belief is that the Aurora shooter dressed up as Joker and thought he was Joker on account of the batshit crazy.

This is so not true it fucking baffles me. This basically all stems from the fact that his hair was dyed red. You may notice that red is not the color of Joker's hair. If anything, he was cosplaying as ginger Neo from The Matrix.

Please never repeat this retarded shit, and slap all your dumb friends right in the Mandela for me.

You're being disingenuous by repeatedly bringing that up. There exists another precedent for this specific type of movie to motivate someone to commit a shooting: Taxi Driver inspired an attempt on Reagan, and this movie is Taxi Driver with a clown, so it doesn't matter at all, completely, which colour did that lad dye his hair in. Just shut up, you mass shooter sympathiser.

Nope. First post. It was in the news at the time he was just wearing a trenchcoat full of guns like any mass shooter you'd imagine.
The irony of a bunch of SJW types up in my social medias repeating this rumor that started basically just because a dude had dyed hair is ironic as all hell, and this isn't a stereotype. Half of their profile pictures have blue or red hair, the crown jewel of them being a dude with his fucking beard dyed blue.

Can you describe absolutely every possible category of people with just a term? I don't think that you realise this, but most people don't see pimps as innocent victims, they seem them as potential mass shooters, considering that they actually have committed them and that's how the word even got into the mass vocabulary in the first place. After the multiple examples of supreme gentlemen, it only makes sense to expect for some pimp to get inspired by a story of the pimp icon breaking bad to shoot up some cinema. It's common sense: it's known that pimps are mass shooters, and it's known that pimps worship the Joker, and it's known that this movie was going to be Taxi Driver with a clown, and it's known that Taxi Driver inspired a copycat crime, so the only people who could possibly be complaining about le epic esjewdoublyus are pimps themselves. You must be enthusiastic or have sociopathic tendencies to be this incapable of seeing the common point of view.

The score is great, the film is well shot, Gotham looks grimy and believable, and Pheonix gives it his all as usual, but I don't think they really knew what to do with these characters. Fleck is too stupid and pathetic to believe his evolution into the terrifying criminal mastermind Joker is supposed to be. His meltdown on the late night show was distilled cringe, and the social commentary on class struggle felt under-developed and boneheaded.

I also really didn't like the disrespectful version of Thomas Wayne as a callous, out-of-touch fatcat politician/businessman dickhead archetype who was also possibly involved in a gross criminal conspiracy to cover up an affair which allows a child to be horribly abused for years. He's also way too fucking old to be playing Bruce Wayne's father. Fleck is also too old for that matter, am I supposed to believe that Joker is going to be in his 60-70s by the time Bruce grows up and faces him?

In comics, there's a million different realities where Thomas Wayne is either a massive cunt or he's Batman or he's just dead the whole time. He can be anything. Same for Joker. There are alt-reality comics coming out right now where Joker is the hero and Bruce Wayne is an asshole. Who cares if this movie doesn't take place in the same canon realm as the mainline comic?

Just went and saw it. I thought it was a very good movie, but I don't think it lives up to the hype. It didn't 'haunt me' or make me 'feel weird' like all these reviewers are saying, actually on the ride home I didn't even think about it.

Good movie tho, Joaquin was great and will get a nomination I'm sure. Just don't think the movie is as 'deep' as some are making it out to be.

yucko always related.

I saw it last week and I enjoyed it and Joaquin Phoenix was phenomenal as Joker. I do agree that it was derivative of anti-hero films like Taxi Driver and Todd Phillips trying to copy Martin Scorcese, who was originally attached as a producer. The one scene where Joker stabbed and bashed Randall's skull in was pretty sick. Also Joker's got dance moves.

Nevertheless, I thought their take on Joker's origin story was good and expanded upon his origin story from the Killing Joke but trying to keep it grounded in realism without the whole Joker falling into a vat of chemicals stuff. If this is the start of DC's non-DCEU Dark universe, I would hope that Marvel could do their own non-MCU universe like their Max comics line but for films. Films like Joker and Deadpool prove that R-rated DC/Marvel comic films can be successful in the box office.

Also Jared Leto not surprisingly was pissed off about this film and tried to stop it from being made - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/youve-got-stop-jared-leto-fumed-new-joker-movie-1247699

You remember all those early reviews about Suicide Squad about how Will Smith is playing a real bad guy for the first time in history, and Jared Leto was going to be the most twisted Joker yet, and afterwords it's like "Oh, the reviewers never actually saw the movie, they were just guessing"?

I'm down with this version of Harley, even if I don't agree with her voice casting. The rest of the voice cast seems pretty good. Especially Alan Tudyk Joker and Ron Funches King Shark. Jim Rash as the Riddler is totally icing on the cake at this point.

This series really seems like DCU finally cutting loose and having fun with the IP they're dealing with.

the other times i saw it everyone was pretty quiet as well. only a couple laughs at some scenes like the "miniature golf" joke, the door lock scene, etc.

Part of me noticed that it very well could be seen as such.


I think, for the most part, it’s portrayed more like that than anything else.

Except the part where he creates Batman and we witness the most undeniable canon throughout the film: Bruce Wayne’s parents were criminally murdered and this entire film is what lead to it.


What created Batman? Childhood trauma?
Mental illness of an innocent woman and failed mother?
Abuse to an adopted child of hers via toxic masculinity and neglect of it?
Was Batman created because of a Woman? Because of the Joker’s mother causing all of this, or can we not see her as the root cause behind all this?

The Real Threat of ‘Joker’ Is Hiding in Plain Sight

What the film wants to say — about mental illness or class divisions in
society — is not as interesting as what it accidentally says about whiteness.
By Lawrence Ware

Published Oct. 9, 2019
Updated Oct. 11, 2019

This article contains spoilers for “Joker.”

Before “Joker” opened last weekend, much was being made of how its tale of a
murderous villain echoed news stories of mass shooters and pimp threats, and
how the film might encourage unbalanced viewers to commit acts of violence. As
it turned out, it mainly inspired audiences to open their wallets for the
biggest October opening ever.

After watching the film, I could understand the concerns: Directed by Todd
Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix as the deranged clown Arthur Fleck, the
title character, “Joker” is simultaneously a well-made film in its own right
and a blatant mash-up of “The King of Comedy” and “Taxi Driver.” It nods at
classism and winks at the Bruce Wayne family mythos, but at its core the movie
is about a mentally ill loner.

Still, what struck me most is that what the film wants to say — about mental
illness or class divisions in American society — is not as interesting as what
it accidentally says about whiteness. For it is essentially a depiction of
what happens when white supremacy is left unchecked. It shows the delusions
that many white men have about their place in society and the brutality that
can result when that place is denied.

The fact that the Joker is a white man is central to the film’s plot. A black
man in Gotham City (really, New York) in 1981 suffering from the same
mysterious mental illnesses as Fleck would be homeless and invisible. He
wouldn’t be turned into a public figure who could incite an entire city to
rise up against the wealthy. Black men dealing with Fleck’s conditions are
often cast aside by society, ending up on the streets or in jail, as studies
have shown.

And though Fleck says he often feels invisible, had he been black, he truly
would have been — except, of course, when he came into contact with the
police. They’d be sure to see him.

Though Fleck is pursued and investigated by Gotham’s finest, his whiteness
acts as a force field, protecting him as he engages in the violent acts of the
latter half of the film. Consider his appearance on the live talk show hosted
by Murray Franklin (Robert De Niro). A black man acting as strangely as Fleck
does would not have been allowed to go on the air. But the white Fleck is
given access, and bloodshed soon follows.

Or look at how Fleck interacts with others. He is frequently in conversation
with people who occupy a lower rung in society than he does: a state-appointed
therapist he sees early on; a protective mother who chastises him for playing
peekaboo with her son on the bus; his possible love interest, a neighbor who
lives in the same building; and the psychiatrist he sees in Arkham Asylum.
Every one of these characters is a black woman with whom he eventually has
confrontations. Phillips consistently places Fleck in an oppositional or
antagonistic position to these women.

I don’t know if this is intentional on Phillips’s part, but it is significant.
When we learn that his relationship with the neighbor (played with artful
restraint by Zazie Beetz) was merely a figment of his troubled imagination,
the way he leaves the apartment implies that this realization has led Fleck to
kill her and perhaps her child. After his final conversation with the Arkham
doctor, his bloody footsteps suggest that he kills her as well.

Fleck kills white men because he cannot access their status and is ostracized
by them, but his black female victims are so invisible that the film does not
bother to show their deaths. We as viewers can and should take note of them.

There are other ways that whiteness informs Fleck’s character. He anticipates
he’ll be treated as a son by the Wayne family, and assumes he’ll be given
medical records just by asking the hospital orderly (played by the great Brian
Tyree Henry). The privileges that come with Fleck’s race set him up for these
unrealistic expectations. When they’re not met, the consequences are deadly.

Whiteness may not have been on the filmmakers’ minds when they made “Joker,”
but it is the hidden accomplice that fosters the violence onscreen.

complete fucking bullshit, honestly.


Bitch is trying to once again draw attention away from big bad whitey and to their own communities OVER A COMIC BOOK adaptation put in theatres. That is Insanity.

No, if Arthur/TheFuckingJOKER was black, it would not be any different, and no, he didn’t have it any better as this cunt also implied a black Arthur would be ignored by society(like this one wasn’t?) and would be homeless on the streets(like that wasn’t slightly portrayed already in the film for Arthur on the ground in wet dirty back alleyways)

Fuck this article. 2/10 for the fact I am responding.
does the cunt feel okay imagining WhiteFace painted over a black man to portray Joker? Because news flash bitch, the artist never painted clowns with Blackface and the paint is never gonna be anything but White so how tf is a Black Joker even make sense in her dumb ass head? They’d have to paint a black man white just to even entertain this dumb ass article’s ideas.

Joaquin's performance is good. As usual. The rest is a mediocre double homage to Scorsese and a lot of emotional fan wank from people who think it encapsulates their age. Not accusing anyone here in particular. Hopefully Joaquin has the sense to say no to the sequel they're churning out because it would demystify the only hook it has, "Did any of it really happen?".

I only go to the theater once or twice a year. Most of the time I just pirate movies. The only other movie I've seen on the big screen that was genuinely terrible was Kingsman 2, and it definitely wasn't as bad as Joker. I paid 40 fucking dollars to watch that committee-designed tryhard heavy-handed burning garbage heap.

I can't believe people are comparing this jerk-off movie to The Dark Knight. It really goes to show how many retards walk among us, that so many people think Joaquin Phoenix is gonna win an Oscar for this turd. This movie was almost as painful as the Jumanji 2 trailer they showed before it started. Jesus fucking christ.

nah it was very good. Especially for a superhero movie. More character focused and realistic than a bunch of mind numbing/dumbing action like all other comic movies.

In what way does someone living with their parents make them a loser? Is this what you tell yourself to find your life meaningful? Have fun paying thousands a year on a neat living space and still not getting any cooter for it

Y'know, not all movies have to be for you. I'm sure the Rock and everyone else had a lot of fun making it.

How do you know that? Were you there? It's possible no one had any fun making the movie, wouldn't you feel silly then, or would you just perish the thought and not talk about it as a way to rationalize your error

>I also really didn't like the disrespectful version of Thomas Wayne as a callous, out-of-touch fatcat politician/businessman dickhead archetype
That's the most realistic part of the movie, tho.

Watching him get got was extremely satisfying.

Gotham was on Fox but I get what you mean. The portrayal of Thomas Wayne has for the most part been that he's a rich and powerful corporate magnate of Wayne Enterprises but it doesn't really surprise me if he's a billionaire who became mayor like Michael Bloomberg.

That was one thing I really liked that I think speaks to the movies politics, that they could have made Thomas Wayne a boisterous right wing pseudo fascist Trump figure but instead he was portrayed as that sort of Bloomberg psychotic neoliberal "I am better than you and know whats good for you more than you do" sort of billionaire politician. I think it makes a much clearer contrast with the leftist elements of the film.

The article linked above about it erasing black people or whatever isn't wrong either.

his speech was on point, showed actual mental instability and a slight distaste of modern humanity and our ways. Good shit, touching and truly genuine. Jared Leto must really envy him and Ledger’s Joker oscars.

yeah I really like wakeen. The Master is a strange, maybe flawed movie that is elevated far above its flaws because of the sincerity of its ensemble (wakeen most of all) and striving of PTA. thats what strikes me most of all about him. Basically he's great, but joker is a huge disappointment and the cultural fanfare about it is the real joke

hey man, fuck you.

I relate all too much with the character, almost every single scene tbh. Every aspect of that film really does pinpoint mental health issues in America. Even the dancing and joyousness given from acts of violence, the whole “My life is nothing but a comedy” rant and “Dont Smile!” thing. Music is all some of us have left alongside Yoga and spirituality and the movements he does even related to that. I really do see that movie as a frighteningly accurate portrayal of it all. Even the black girlfriend he imagined, all of it is too well done to not deserve the praise it gets. You not getting all that and just going in expecting entertainment is the joke.

Mind you, the murderous tendencies elicited were some of the first times a Rated R Joker character is actually able to scare people like the character is meant to. Ledger’s got nerfed for the PG-13 rating as have others, and for once you can actually feel some fear when taking in the Joker. Fuck all mang, dat shit dope.

Joaquin Phoenix is an outstanding actor, but even with the explicit on-screen violence, pimp Joaqoker was one of the least frightening renditions of the Joker since Cesar fucking Romero. Ledger played the character with a hundred times more charisma and malevolence, despite never needing to show him covered in gore to spell out how scary he was supposed to be.

Phoenix decided to play Fleck as a pathetic, whiny, self-pitying loser (which probably explains why so many other losers with no self-awareness are identifying with it) to set up the narrative arc of an origin story that the Joker never needed, and that never goes anywhere. Fleck's character starts as a a pathetic, whiny, self-pitying loser and ends as a pathetic, whiny, self-pitying loser who also happened to kill a few unarmed drunks, a bedridden old woman, and a couple of unsuspecting bullies along the way. He never does anything you'd expect from the Joker, even accounting for being a "young" (45 year old!) inexperienced Joker.

He never develops any elaborate criminal schemes, displays an aptitude for strategy or tactics, manages to outwit his enemies, or intimidates anyone besides the dwarf. He's just an awkward, mentally ill schmuck with no agency that accidentally stumbles into killing some jerks with a gun someone else gave him, accidentally discovers his past based on a clue literally left right in front off him, and accidentally goes viral and gets invited onto national television to throw a cringe-filled tantrum, and go Columbine on the personification of his daddy issues.

yeah, like I'm not gonna let it, on its own, ruin the movie for me, and it's not the main reason i don't like it and think it fails, but killing drunk "wallstreet" finance bros, as if they're the real threat. the unavoidable undercurrent, that you're more likely to get mugged by a PoC, was so thick in the air one wonders if they were wanting to imply it.
The least they could have done was to make one or two of the finance bros visibly jewish looking, like Seth Rogan facial features, if they wanted to go down that route, but they didn't do that either. Knowing the writer/director is himself Jewish makes it that much worse. THe fucking gall of that, the inauthenticity of it, the trite wokeness of it. Jesus christ i'm getting disappointd again just thinking about it.

and yeah, you're being brutal, i think there's space to show weakness and it doesn't make it 'pathetic and whiny', but there was something let's just say crybaby about this character. emphasize vogue depression, identify as a beta male proudly.. again this stuff strikes me as something *jewish*, like Judd Apatow characters or Woody Allen. even Zach Braff. I remember the appeal of this stuff in my early 20s and looking back it striks me as incredibly harmful and negative. The Joker is, to me, in that same Jewish tradition and, as you can see from that other guy's post, having the same effects on viewers

Whiny homeless self-pitying joker unable to stand up for himself is one thing, sure, but it makes you actually WANT the real joker to show himself now. Don’t get worked by the writing aspects of it all and forget the goal is to leave people feeling a different level of support or mercy for the character, that way as you see the villain you have more than a typical criminal in your sights. Joker is not normal, and this film helps establish the road to his lack of normality. Maybe it’s just not for you, guys. Regardless, the film got all the praise it deserved.

Now, even one of my buddies felt the same as to not liking this uncool version of the joker, but again, it’s only meant to show glimpses of the more serious and badass versions, and the Joker in established canon was always meant to have endless versions of himself always creating more and more personalities.

Just watched the movie. It's Taxi Driver and King of Comedy with the Joker shoved in to make a billion at the box office. You have to watch nothing but comic book movies to be able to take it seriously. Why is this celebrated?
