In Taxi Driver, the blood in the last scene is really dimmed.... almost like pink. This is the only reason the film got out. The MPAA wouldn't give the R rating unless it was less violent.
Weird cut in the beginning
I watched it & it's a real deal
Review the movie Downsizing, it is the worst movie I’ve ever seen
Gives it an A- but admits that it copied taxi DRIVER to a T ???
Arthur was a leftist and within a leftist society (socialist and hate towards rich) Arthur became joker. No wonder some people criticise this over couple of murders while john wick kill so many people and not spreading violence. 😂
He said “ first u feel bad for him second u r scared of him “ but I feel the opposite, I feel bad for him then scared of him n then I understood him n then I felt empathetic n then I cried
John Wick kills 400 people per movie, Joker kills *spoiler* 6 ( possible maybe 7 if you watch til the end ) and people lose their shit lol.
Fantastic movie. DC is back with a big Bang
When there's a Joker 2, and there will be, my fear is that it is going to mirror the Matrix. The first Matrix was great. The second Matrix, neo had already become the one and it got bogged down in philosophical bullshit. In the Joker, we see Joker become Joker, but I hope it doesn't loose it's way like the Matrix did. I'm so happy to see movies taking big risks.
Honestly the first hour of the movie was dull. But the last 45mins were good.
9:22 I don't know, after this movie, something dark wakes up in me, and want to kill particular people.
Only 7 months after the last controversial comic book movie, god dammit
He would be great as the grinch,he wouldnt have to act neither.
yeah, I was thinking taxi driver the whole time. Not only because I compared the characters' similar situation but because it's a portrayal of a type of man that is rarely the leading role in a film. The ultimate underdog that discovers life is not all the beautiful after all. The under-represented majority of us I dare to say.As i saw more of the video I have something else to say. You said it makes us question whether there's some responsibility on us even though we are not the ones ''pulling the trigger''. Hell yeah there is. I've been saying it all along throughout every shooting and every mass attack on the population. It's statistically impossible that they all share the same pathology. They are, in fact, just as the joker is in the movie, fed-up victims of a system that so obviously ''doesn't care for people like them''. Does it make his actions ok? No. Is there a reason behind it besides pure evil? I think so. There's only so much someone can take before snapping and the movie has some amazing quotes on that.
All I have are positive/sad thoughts of this movie. If you haven’t seen it, you don’t get it
7:02 um... uh, what was that? 😂
It pissed me off, that no one have the capacity to understand that it's fiction, this is not something to be used as a model of how to behave in society, this is a work of fiction, like millions of others thro the history of human kind. Should we burn all books to ashes, because they are not depicting the "true and good way to behave"? who decides that? and what about one of the reasons fiction even exists in the first place: telling a story about something that is not normal, something that is not your daily boring office commute routine? why people get so offended by fiction is beyond me, and yeah, some movies, a lot of them, are the kind of movies that make you think about your stupid useless "normie" way you are living your life, perhaps it make you wonder how it would be otherwise, that does not mean, these movies will be exposed in schools with teachers saying "hey, kid, this is how you should behave". People take things to extremes that are more fictional, than the movie itself. Who in their own fucking mind would think a movie should be used as a guide on how to live their fucking lives? i hate this kind of debate and i think it's useless.
laughed my ass off ... on the toilet ... over the last joke - "...you wouldn't get it..." - because I didn't get it instantly, while watching
I expected so much violence before seeing it. This was nothing.
I loved the film, and i think it actually does a good job showing the Joker asking for help, so hopefully that helps direct people in some sort of mental health state that needs it to get help. But I also understand that the area where that garbage who called himself the joker and attacked a theatre even with the Batman - The Dark Knight are not showing the film, and I get it in that situation completely. Considering, even with Heath's somewhat less controversial portrayal there was a copycat incident. I seriously think discussions about issues, like the political divide, recent gun violence, etc is more important than trying to pretend it isn't already happening anyway. And man, Jauquin's performance was masterful. He just jumped to a top ten list of actors of his generation, if I made such a list, with this performance. I honestly wasn't expecting to like it. cause violence deplicted for the sake of violence, just to appease that sometimes demented side of moviegoers always puts me off many a movie that pretends to be something higher than it is, in this case, wow, they shot at the moon, and caught Mars.. Quite a feat with a superhero(villian) movie.
Just saw the movie... Best comic movie I've seen so far lol Best joker no question!!!
Just watched the movie a few hours ago. Damn it was good.
I guess I'm the only one who isn't okay with "The joker" having an IQ in the 50s. 😂😂😂 Give me a break. The dancing, the lack of lines. He was so mentally incompasitated it was ridiculous! The joker is supposed to have intellect! Yes he's supposed to be crazy. But there is a difference between insanity and being mentally challenged. 🤷🤷🤷 The movie wasn't about the joker at all. But about mental illness with joker thrown on it. It has nothing to do with the actual origin story. Not to mention the joker is 45 years old living with his mom while Bruce is still a child. Has everyone lost their minds?!? Did we see the same movie!!!???
Depressing film... not worth seeing imo. Just another thing urging common people to become violent, cynical, apathetic, etc.
It wasn't sympathy that they were attempting to engender, it was empathy. Sympathy is what you give a cold, wet dog.
You started to rooting to for the Joker as the movie goes on
thanks so much for reviewing this film!!
One week to go , and i'm gonna watch joker . fascinating how he becomes evil or wicked feed by dark energy of this society we are living in . I hope i dont get to much sympathie for the joker . But i ques thats their purpose . Already subscribed and thanks for youre great information and explaining . Greetings from belgium
8:20 I’m not sure how I feel about your position here. We want to give an artist space to make their statement, we might need a mirror reflecting back on us to show us an ugliness otherwise hidden. I’m unconvinced that violent movies and video games are a complete non factor in America’s tendency toward violence, and the science just confirms one’s bias. So it gets confusing. If an artist wants to make a film like this or like Taxi Driver, they’re taking on a lot of responsibility. They can’t foresee the consequences of art like this, and neither can you. Taxi Driver wasn’t such a great movie that I’d sacrifice my loved ones or their safety just to make sure it got made. I just feel like this sort of thing is more complicated than your attitude suggests.
The way I see it, this film doesn't glorify violence at all. To me, it shows how a kind person can transform into someone who does horribly violent things, because of a combination of factors such as a mental illness, being treated terribly, failure career wise, violence, and a resulting self hate and total lack of confidence. Violence is part of the solution for Arthur when he becomes the Joker, because he has been pushed down by society and his mental illness so many times that it's the only thing that can help him get up. This does not mean it's glorified, because the more Arthur becomes the violent Joker we know, the less you can relate to him. At least, this is what I felt while watching the movie.
It was a tough watch, he’s so confused and in his head, he has no control over his thoughts and he took everything so personal and had no control over his emotions, it was very well made but just tough to watch, wouldn’t see it again.
The A+ is a myth 😂
Chirs plenty of MCU movies leave you talking Avengers Infinity War just about the whole Captain America Trilogy and various others
This movie is a solid commentary on how to help those in need and not allowing violence to happen this controversy is overblown
Jared Leto: I’m such a good Joker Joaquin Phoenix: Hold my Oscar trophy
Joker is like the Taxi Driver
If they made him gay it would have been A+ but I still liked it🌈
Where did you get that kickass shirt? I want one!
The JOKER does have an origin story . It is titled "WHITE HEAT " , starring JAMES CAGNEY .
That's funny because the first act of Batman 1989, especially at the Ace Chemical Plant, always reminds me of White Heat!
I wish you spoke more on mental illness in your breakdown of his character. this guy is mentally ill
Your voice is so lifeless
Those scenes of the subway train filled with Jokers singlehandedly makes me want to see this. But the rest of the scenes already make me so uncomfortable I don't know if I'm ready for that. I feel like I'm already depressed enough about society as it is...
Go see it and unleashed your inner Joker.
I really think Heath Ledger was just a freak in face paint. Instead of the Joker.
@Rent My Ego I can even go a step further The Dark Knight is fuckin overrated, it is not even a good BATMAN movie, and not even a good COMIC BOOK movie. If you remove Batman from it the movie plays out the same.bye now.Phoenix did an origin, and someone like the JOKER is not sane at all. Heath was okay but not my favorite honestly.
Diurno MX your nuts if u think ledger is overrated. Phoenix was just some crazy guy in clown paint. Ledger is the definitive joker
@Rent My Ego not really, Phoenix really portrayed the illness mentally that Joker is going through at all times. Heath is just overrated because he died.
Diurno MX Phoenix was the same as well. heath is still the best
You are right. Deadpool is visually more violent. However, the violence in this movie is depicted very realistically and grounded.
@Adrian Mantsch exactly. Deadpool is comic violence, this Joker guy could be your neighbor next door
Yeah, this movie shows psychological violence which is far worse than visual violence.This is why the comparison with Martyrs works.
yeah . what chris said .
I just watched it. I liked the movie. The slow build up is good and the ending is like a punch like ! I felt like him after.
People aren’t confused on the character, everybody in this day and age just likes being outraged for no good reason.
That shit is so annoying.
Why this Joaquin Phoenix ‘s Joker is well received:His reasons of becoming the Joker is realistic and logical and reasonable.
saw it for the second time today... favourite movie of 2019 by far
His performance was absolutely amazing, I have never been disturbed by a film like this
Every thing about this movie was good except for the plot and story . That was just a hot mess and if not for Phoenix, this movie would've been a B or C+
Is there anyone else who didn't like it
Fyi, averse and adverse mean different things. =]
Chris Stuckman videos = consistently class.I love how your opinions are those of (a) a regular movie fan, and (b) someone who clearly wishes to produce his own features & actively pitches them to studios.It makes for a refreshingly wholistic viewing experience.Here's to you, bud.
"It is a Drama" - that's what I like about The Dark Knight
"Is he going to tickle people to Death?" - Lol I wouldn't be surprised if he did.
