    I feel like this movie is dangerous, but not in the way people are saying it is. It won't invite violence or anything like that. It's dangerous because this movie makes you sympathize with the Joker, but it doesn't make you root for him or hope he succedes. It's dangerous because it's a movie that makes you question the *reasons* why Arthur does what he does rather than just writing him off as cartoonish evil. It makes you realize the inherent problem in our society, that the poor and the mentally ill are forgotten and abandoned. It's a movie that doesn't let you see things in black and white. It's absolutely dangerous, but it's dangerous because it makes us confront issues in society rather than ignore them. All the people saying it will Incite violence are just wanting to ignore the message and go back to their black and white narrative that lets them continue to ignore people in need.

    For those who don't even pay attention to superhero movies it's great cuz you can sit down and watch without knowing a damn thing.

    This is such a conflicting and uncomfortable watch, but Phoenix is fantastic in the role!

    I think here's how you tie in Phoenix's joker into the larger DCEU:
    They've replaced batfleck with Pattinson's Batman and that's the first hurdle.. and honestly I wish they would have just kept batfleck he wasn't the fucking problem but ok just say fuck it and act like it was Robert Pattinson all along we won't even acknowledge the change.
    We can just act like Pattinson's Batman is fucking 50 years old and jacked like batfleck.
    Then say that Leto's joker was Jason Todd since thats what everyone thought at first anyways. It would explain away why Leto's joker was so bad because he was just imitating the real joker. Imitating Phoenix's joker.
    Idk I'm honestly just spitballing at this point I just feel the DCEU is so fucked they are making birds of prey which has Harley fucking Quinn in it which means Leto's joker is still in the universe. So how do they explain a whole different batman. If they did something different with Leto I'd be curious to see it.. I thought from the suicide trailers he'd be great. But they'd be stupid not to include Joaquin Phoenix's joker in the DCEU considering that in most peoples opinion he definitely matched if not exceeded Heath ledgers take on the joker.
    It's like DC is just throwing shit out there at this point and seeing what sticks and it's kinda sad. Even though I loved joker it's still sad to think that that's all we're gonna get of that version of the joker. I don't think anybody wants to see Leto again after that masterful performance by Joaquin..
    I truly truly hope they figure all of it out but at the moment things are a fucking mess in the DCEU and if they fuck up Batman one more time he's gonna die for a couple decades Joel Schumacher style... Please DC don't fuck it up anymore... Please

    I'm kinda "meh" on the Joker as a character. To me Joker is Mark Hammil in cartoons and the games. That being said....
    HOLY SWEET HECK I ADORED that movie. The cinematography, sound design, color on top of an amazing performance by Pheonix.

    Agree with alot of points made..the movie should have been called Arthur instead of joker. If your going to see the movie as huge batman/joker fan you will be disappointed.

    I dont agree with the idea that he gets beat down and he becomes the joker. He had a predispostion to become the joker. He had a choice, but he is both innocent and guilty. I thought of the movie hannibal rising, they did it better.

    Ultimately I got one small scheme out of this movie and that’s what I’ve always liked about joker is the chaotic evil intelligence. In this regard it was lacking and felt like the joker was flying by the seat of his pants rather than being in control imo

    I thought it was psychological thriller about a man who changes as the movie current events and drama unfolds. He progresses to become the Joker as problems in his personal life mount up. Being the son of one of Batman’s most important character’s came as a shock. The movie was good but for meant health patient it makes you feel more alive in a way. It was like a walk thru the life of real person ....but on the edge!!!!

    Thanks for pointing out that the movie was uncomfortable and that it made you root for him to _not_ snap. Which for a movie that pulls you in because you _want_ to see a Joker origin story, that's pretty impressive.

    Its a great movie it just shouldn’t be about jokers back story should just be a movie about a psychotic villain , The only problem I have is the joker is like 35 and Bruce is still about 10 so by the time Bruce becomes Batman the joker will be about 50 and would be no match for Batman at that age the timeline is off

    So basically, we have a delusional schizophrenic person that murders multiple people and he’s the Joker. So anyone mentally ill person to that extreme that commits murder, can be the a Joker. You missed the character. Joaquin Phoenix does a a fantastic job of crossing Taxi Driver and one Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest but that ain’t the Joker.

    I think they should do a film just on the penquin honestly. Penquin is never in batman films in many many many years it's always joker this and joker that. The others matter to you know. Joker is eh okay I just think he is overrated big time. I'll wait till redbox to see it

    Yes agreed with that this should not have been called 'Joker' and 'Arthur' would definitely have been a better name. 'Joker' got a 1/10 from me, 'Arthur' would have gotten a higher score. I didn't like this movie, to me it wasn't about Joker the Batman villain, it was about Arthur a guy with mental issues. Don't agree that this is a awesome movie...

      So just because it didn't feel like the joker even though this is just the beginning for this joker you give it a 1 gtfo.

    One thing I will say about this snooze fest of a movie is that it didn't feel real at all, as a matter of face during the last scene I was left wondering what was real and what wasn't, like with his girl, but I found myself not caring about any of it
