It's got some pretty powerful reviews. Most the criticism seems way above my intelligence level and what I look for in good movies so I feel this movie might live up to its hype (for me). I just want five things in a movie,plot, screenplay, acting, cinematography and score. I really don't care about complex layers and all that shit, I get enough of that on the internet regularly

Joker was amazing. Score, Photography. Acting by Phoenix was fantastic. Was not letdown by any corny sequence or weird off-putting messages in there. Just watching an actor do what they do in a brilliant way. Todd Philips gets props as well. Very much like taxi driver but yeah it didn't bother me at all because this one had enough to stand on its own.

yeah Joker was amazing. Watching Phoenix is painful at times, deeply uncomfortable, but thoroughly impressive.

And even though it's set in Gotham, 1981, you could remove every reference to the batman universe and the movie would not suffer from it. The social commentary isn't all that fleshed out - but the depiction of living with mental illness really is.

Joker is the most brilliant movie ive seen this year. Maybe even 5 years back. It dosnt really need the Batman universe to make its point. Its not about mental illness, its about the illness the whole society lives in. The systemic disease that gets everyone eventually.

This movie was so deep im writing about it in my daily journal 3rd day in a row after seeing it. Its brilliant art and nothing like the usual crap Hollywood produces. I suggest everyone to watch it with an open mind and try to dig deep in the ideas it provides.

Full respect goes to the cast and crew and especially Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix.

Politics aside. It's a fucking masterpiece. People will change how they see this movie years from now when all the drama behind it has moved on and objectively assess this movie for what it is, a brilliantly made film.

I just saw The Irishman ... and ... holy shit dude. This is most definitely Scorsese's best movie ever and he had a very fucking high bar to beat. It's one of those types of movies you kind of wish you didn't see, but not because you want to experience the first time of watching it again, you simply don't want to think about the question it raises.

This will go down as the best mafia-related movie of all times, but its so much more

forgot about the Godfather, I still think the Godfather is much better than anything else actually

I didn't like it. The boys are too old to have pulled this off like they did with Casino, Goodfellas, etc. I don't see it being better than most gangster scorsese movies like the departed, godfather, casino, goodfellas. The CGI bothered me a lot. It also felt like a Netflix quality home movie

You would probably call something like "A clockwork orange" and "Space Oddysey" terrible too considering your arguments for The Irishman

thought goodfella's was good, havn't seen the irishman but its largely fiction so im wondering what questions it raises? The gangster genre is very tired and has been for a long time. the mafia are a very small sub-culture in society (and very small in today's world), yet there are more movies made about this sub culture than almost anything else it seems.

Space oddysey was awesome, even tho the plot is about as ridiculous as scientology. I'm a big fan of kubrick just from his technique, barry lyndon was one of my favourites.

Nah they just looked "old". Deniro as a 35 year old walks like a 75 year old, kicks like one too. They should've just gotten a young actor to play the young parts instead of dogshit playstation 1 cgi. Acting was good, not great or like their previous movies. They played characters that felt like were for younger actors and all this romance about how great the movie is stems from nostalgia mostly. I'm trying to be objective when I watch these things. It's overrated and I would'nt watch it again if they paid me, unlike their previous movies which I've probably watched more than 3 times each.

Joker wasnt a superhero movie really it just used the capeshit tag to make a billion dollars.

It wasnt really a social commentary at all either it was more of a direct criticism of the media (partly stemming from Todd Philip's feeling of being unable to make comedies anymore due to PC culture. Although Joker is actually a classic greek comedy).

In the movie, the news and the Murray show will use Arthur and his actions to push their own agendas and narratives while never caring about him, his circumstances, his reasoning, or the truth. They use his act of self defense as a catalyst and they make him the figurehead of a movement he never gave a fuck about

Deadpool crushes it as non PC culture comedies, both times even though the 2nd was a poor one compared to the first.

Todd Phillips is unable to make comedies... cause people realized his comedies are actually trash and he literally did the same movie 4 times in a row. It was a poorly executed 'American Pie' spin-off that got worse and worse. Its actually amazing that people watched his crappy movies. War Dogs is literally the only decent one and he almost managed to ruin that one too, even though the story is self-written by real-life events (hurr durrr Murican going for a piss in the middle of nowhere obviously not going get in trouble at that same moment, such a non-cliche joke hurr durr) Read the real story after the movie and honestly, that whole story is so ridiculous it would take effort to fuck the movie up

There's also obviously tons of social commentary in the Joker... if you want to look at it that way. I'm not the one to give a fuck about that in movies though. The media is just a strong portion of it

watched the Irishman... 8/10

unncecesarely long, it looked pretty bad when the "young" versions moved like old men, like when De Niro beats up the grocery store owner it looks hillariously bad.

what i liked the most is the implications of the last scene where he asks the nurse to leave the door open, reminiscent on when he talks about cremating being too final, he doesn't die and because he carries a guilt he cannot admit to his daughters even to save his relationship with them, to the FBI even after all are long dead nor even to the priest.

I still wonder what the whole idea was behind them playing their younger selves, whether it was a metaphor or Scorsese said 'eeeh why not, lets fucking try to pull it off'


Baalim   Mexico. Dec 09 2019 11:08. Posts 33311

In netflix after the movie ends theres a table with scorsesse, pacino, deniro and peci and the talk about the movie, scorsese just says the technology was new and used in a few films and he liked the idea, he mentions that other people playing their young parts don't have the same mannerism, gesticulations etc, which is true but they should have used body doubles for certain scenes.

They also laugh about the scene where Hoffa is angry at JFK on the TV and stands up but he stands up very slowly so scorsese tells him he is playing a 49yo, that he should have more pep in his movements so apparently that's them trying to move like younger people... damn old age is rough.
