Birds of Prey

 

I dunno. It looks super try hard edgy. Even more than the Joker movie. Still, will probably day 1 it.

because that’s how I get hyped for comic book movie, classical music and introspective duality .. 

 

what a garbage trailer. I dunno why dc/wb is going for philosophical grandstanding in their movies. You have Joker pandering to introvert teenagers and Harley Quinn has the- just outta relationship lesbian convert- trope. I bet she’ll have a 30sec sex scene followed by a 5 min monologue about emancipation through self love; I’ve watched enough french art house.

 

Wheres the fun dc? Why can’t you simply have bad mf’rs and hot bitches f**k sh*t up without giving it a Bhansali treatment.

Saw Joker. Pretty good. Phoenix might get an Oscar for his performance. They should make this movie canon in DCEU. 

Yeah exactly. I found his performance to be as great as heath ledger if not better. 

The cinematography was great too and it was a treat to look at in Imax. 

However it lacked memorable dialogues and the story was lacking. 

8/10 movie for me. 

I would love to see this joker in a Batman flick though. Its just too good to just set it aside as a standalone.

Loved it. As close as we can get, in terms of the mature-themed DC comics and animated movies to film.

 

Brilliantly done! The direction, the acting (by everyone). Some of the scenes were surely goosebump-worthy.

 

:majesty:

 

IMAX was amazing. Except for the idiotic 'Smoking kills 70 Lac people in a year' message at the bottom right corner. To add to the misery, the message popped-up if there was even some cigarette smoke (yes, the actual cigarette is not even visible in the frame at all) in the scene. There were some scenes at the start where some random people in the background were smoking and that message was there. Got so irritated at the start.

 

And it wasn't a translucent text, like I've always seen in previous movies. It was a proper 'black-on-white' text. :fogug:

Back from Joker. An amazing, amazing movie. Joaquin Phoenix either matches or even tops Heath Ledger's performance as Joker. While Ledger's Joker was the whole "Animal" and "Agent of Chaos" thing, Phoenix actually provided the performance worthy of "The Clown Prince of Crime". This is no animal or random villain, but rather an actual real person with obvious mental problems. And the scary part - it is highly understandable why people thought that the movie would promote violence. If you watch the movie - even you as a sane person, might at some level find yourself supporting the Joker. Joaquin Phoenix's acting is just so awesome and the story is so amazing.

 

This movie also provides the answer to why Batman just always captures Joker and drops him off in Arkham Asylum again and again like an idiot in the comics. Joker is an obviously troubled individual and at some level you do feel sorry for him. The final part of the movie - where Phoenix's character ultimately - once and for all - descends into the character of the Joker is a spine chilling moment.

 

And the thing about this movie is, this kind of transformation could happen to any troubled and mentally sick individual.

 

Highly urge you guys to watch this movie. It's just amazing and one of the absolute best movies of the year. One of the highest contenders to win the Best Picture of the Oscars and if it should win - it would be very much deserved, simply due to the quality of the acting and the overall movie itself.

Very well put. I actually found myself sympathising with joker by the end of the movie. This is one of those movies which gets better with every watch. In fact, I'll probably go again this weekend. Joaquin went to extreme lengths for this role and it f**king shows. Honestly one of the best performances I've ever seen.

 

Although, I don't support people saying it'll promote violence. People who get provoked to do violence from a movie are already deranged and need help regardless of the movie existing. Shouldn't give support to the ridiculous people saying a movie like this shouldn't exist.

This. One of the best moments. Also, I love the way he 'descends' (like you mentioned) into becoming the Joker. Very gradual but substantial at the same time with each passing scene.

+1..felt like walking out in the first 5-10 minutes

 

This. So. Much. Then I remembered the amount I paid for the movie and sat on the chair quietly, with a frown.

Also wtf at this stupid trend about shooting or taking pics of the start of the movie and posting it on social media like a dumbass. Almost everyone did it and then kept checking their likes or views etc. People are getting stupider day by day due to social media.

Yep, pretty distracting and idiotic. I mean, just post your thoughts after the movie. People don't have to know that you are watching it right now.
