- Depressing...- January 24, 2020
I had high hopes for this movie. I will say, Joaquin Phoenix played his part brilliantly so, if you are a fan of his, it’s worth the watch. The film, as a whole, is seriously dark and not what I look for in or from a Batman franchise character, The Joker... It’s more of a psychological thriller or real-life to screen drama about a deranged lunatic. But, much of Hollyweird is dark, foreboding and depressing nowadays. Some will surely love it. I found it depressing, and longing for a Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger Joker. I did enjoy the last violent scene, but that was most likely because I dislike the actor who portrayed the character who dies. Have fun!No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
- Surprisingly Good- February 3, 2020
As a long time comic book reader, I had zero desire to see this movie. The idea of a Joker origin movie flies in the face of the character (whose unknown history is a plot device in many stories). However once I watched it, my mind was changed. The movie is amazing and haunting. The story is told in a way that leaves the viewer wondering how much of the story is true, and how much was imagined in the Joker's sick psyche. That being said, if the movie was not about the Joker, it would still be an incredible study on the criminal mind. It reminds me of Taxi Driver in many ways as we watch the protagonist sink deeper and deeper into madness. Not for the kids!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Different flick than the usual DC or Marvel fare,- February 22, 2020
Unlike the past "comic book" based movie adaptions, this one could have existed and won awards (well deserved) had none of those comics ever existed. There are action scenes, but not massive fighting battles. There are costumed (anti) hero's, but not elaborate high tech costumes or weapons. This is a true cinematic, believable type of film, which portrays one mans descent into his own mental illness, which results in a dangerous, and deadly outlet for his pent-up anger. A movie for those who don't care for the big-budget comic type of super-hero movies, but it will appeal to some who love those type of films as well.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
