    This is what you get when you stop copying Marvel. Detective Comics has something Marvel can't do with every franchise and that is the R rated format.

    Such an underrated actor. Most of Hollywood seems to be cheesy one liners, people taking off shirts and explosions. Drama. That's what acting is. Phoenix killed it.

    Pure art. The bathroom dance scene alone is Oscar worthy. The last movie i can remember being amazed by the performance was Daniel D.L. in There will be blood. And of course Ledger's joker.

  • Christopher Norris
    Christopher Norris 15 days ago

    This is what negative critics are saying. They seem to have no actual argument, just buzzwords.
    "Todd Phillips’ “Joker” is unquestionably the boldest reinvention of “superhero” cinema since “The Dark Knight”; a true original that’s sure to be remembered as one of the most transgressive studio blockbusters of the 21st Century. It’s also a toxic rallying cry for self-pitying incels, and a hyper-familiar origin story so indebted to “Taxi Driver” and “The King of Comedy” that Martin Scorsese probably deserves an executive producer credit. It’s possessed by the kind of provocative spirit that’s seldom found in any sort of mainstream entertainment, but also directed by a glorified edgelord who lacks the discipline or nuance to responsibly handle such hazardous material, and who reliably takes the coward’s way out of the narrative’s most critical moments."

    Here is some review info for you !!!!!Why so serious scene is missing, without a chance to recover after in the timeline. Left aside without shame by an arrogant and fake director who aims social propaganda vectors

    • Tudor Tomescu
      Tudor Tomescu 3 days ago

      @irij i was waiting for that scene as a fan of cinema, not as DC fan...let's be frank - it was supposed to be "the birth" and some elements hat to be there. This is not a DC movie. It is a low class propaganda and highly irresponsible movie

    • irij
      irij 3 days ago

      Tudor Tomescu What "why so serious scene"? This is not a part of the main dceu universe. It's a standalone movie. It isnt connected to Heath Ledgers Joker from the Dark Knight.
