      I don’t think you understand the character at all and you’re taking this way too seriously. Um, the character effs with people constantly. That’s his whole thing. He’s a psychopath who makes you question everything, the ultimate gaslighter.

            I loved the fact that the movie was different and not the typical mindless drivel. Just copy and paste formulas. This movie leaves you hoping for more of it's kind. For the love of god not another formula marvel movie.

                The character of The Joker is subjective. Is there not allowed to be anything that isn't comic accurate anymore? Or does everything have to be what some person who has seen The Dark Knight twice and read two comics containing The Joker in them views what The Joker is. Jesus Christ.

                    you sound almost like you decided to not like the movie even before you watched it, and more than half shit you say can be easily disputed, plus you sound like joker normie, I mean the dude that maybe knows the joker from one movie and maybe 1-2 comics that you find randomly, Joker had many versions some silly and goofy some acted more like serial killers others more like mobsters.

                      I agree, poor portrayal of Joker, some pathetic loser dude who is half crying/laughing every two seconds like a crybaby victim wussy. I rather enjoy viewing Joker as a little more confident and intentional.

                        I understand where you're coming from but come on, there's been like five jokers. People say Hollywood is out of ideas but the minute they try something different, comic book fans get upset when it is not exactly the way it is in the comics or previous movies. 

                        It's a fun and interesting adaptation that brings attention to a real social issue. That's what the movie is trying to be and that's what it delivered.

                        There are storylines where Bruce dies and his father is the one that becomes Batman. Did you also not like that storyline because it's a "poor portrayal" of Batman? Something refreshing and new is always welcomed, specially for a character that has been portrayed (somewhat accurately) on multiple platforms.

                      Except, they did make him out to be a character that could be the real joker, hence why they killed the Wayne family at the end of the movie?

                                The film is definitely an arousing story of a truly broken man. However the joker I know doesnt reflect how Todd depicted him. Not saying that the film was bad because of it but it is a lack luster joker film. It wasn't "jokery" enough for me.

                                  Yes, I completely agree. Didn't feel like the Joker at all.

                                      Right after he shoots Murray, for the first time he laughs out of pure enjoyment then he smiles uncontrollably in the police car as he sees Gotham in anarchy.

                                      If that’s not a Joker enough moment then i don’t know what is.

                                          @Simão Olaio I wouldnt describe it as incredibly good, of course compared to a lot of movies these days perhaps it qualifies, I wasn't bored watching it, which is a compliment, but it wasn't a movie that particularly moved me in any way, neither overly comedic, dramatic, dark, adrenaline-pumping, romantic, or any other emotional reaction you could think of. I just walked away feeling the same way as I went into the theatre. It's like listening to a piece of music and experiencing no subjective emotional reaction, what's the point?

                                          @Octavio Serrano That's what I said, if you want to see a quality 2 hour movie about an Incel go to the source, Taxi Driver, but I don't agree about him crying and blubbering through the movie, he had his anger and disgust provoked and turned violent in an intentional way. This Joker seemed to turn violent accidentally.

                                          For anyone who has a certain appreciation for the Joker, I don't see much of the here, it's difficult to feel terror, admiration, or anything really for this version of Joker, who is basically just a big loser wimp who accidentally bumbles his way into some notoriety and violence. Perhaps had he murdered the black woman and her child we could sense some depraved psychosis, perhaps had he killed his mother with true violence instead of that vanilla murder with the pillow we could have sense true violence in his nature. The only truly violent death on his clown co-worker felt very rational and logical based upon the feeling of a need for revenge in the largest context of his already having committed murders and being pursued by the police. I think the problem with this origin story is that it attempted to explain the Jokers origins from the perspective of how a very rational person would become the Joker. Doesn't this defy the very notion of the Joker aesthetic, where irrationality and chaos are his defining features? Why are things so logical? Personally I didn't care much for Joaquin's performance, it was okay but over-acted and masturbatory feeling, I felt zero emotions throughout the entire film, but there was enough light humour and action to keep me engaged at least.

                                          I agree man. Approaching a character we've seen countless times with a new angle is always refreshing and exciting.

                                                    In the 1989 film Batman, it was Joker who killed Bruce's parents. What if the REAL joker is the masked man that kills Thomas and Martha?

                                                      If the scene where Joker is standing with all his followers is a hallucination, then he probably killed Thomas and Martha Wayne.

                                                          I understand what you're saying but purging 7 seperate prescriptions out of your body at once might cause a problem. I think at the end he's capable 😃👍 He's gonna be in Matt Reeves 3rd Batman film by the way 😉 I can feel it

                                                            @Damian No I believe the JOKER movie is a flashback told to the psychiatrist at the end of the film. I think about 10yrs has passed when he kills the psychiatrist and escapes from Arkham Asylum which we see at the end. I also think his age during the film is 30 so he'd be in his 40's when Batman starts which could work I think

                                                            Isaiah's Reviews so it’s gonna be a 60+ year old joker (Joaquin Phoenix is 44) vs a 20 something year old batman? Yeah sure... 🤦🏻‍♂️

                                                          I’m not sure why it’s a major issue that it isn’t supposed to be canon. All the recent comic book adaptations of the Joker, Batman, and pretty much every strictly print release by DC in the last 20+ years has all been the same formula. Give a director/writer/graphic novel artist the rights to the names and let their creativity tell the story they want to tell. This is something I think DC does better than marvel , especially in the comic books. So your complaint is understandable, but only if you feel the same way about all the other DC works in recent years.
