Likely to make people forget Heath Ledger's version?

Easily one of the best trailers so far...Looking forward to this new take on the Joker DC character.

I am really hype up about this! My favourite Dc villain.  However i don't think we will be comparing with Ledger.  Ledger is already legendary in his joker portrayal.. but i am sure this by Joaquin Phoenix will be up there with Ledger's performance

Staggering Oscar-worthy performance… But ultimately quite unsatisfying  :-\… It’s almost all focused around mental health… I miss the sinister criminal mastermind from the comics (albeit, he could turn into one over the next decade while Batman emerges, so maybe too soon to call?)


Ps: Can’t believe they picked a Gary Glitter’s track!!! Classic scene though!!!  ;D

I found this movie quite depressing.
People who is suffering from depression should not watch this movie lest it triggers a major psychotic breakdown in them.

This is easily the best movie of the year imo! Joaquin Phoenix is brilliant in this scintillating take on the iconic DC comic villain...FINALLY something different! Yes, no doubt that it is a very depressing movie to watch but the direction that Todd Philips was taking and Joaquin's brilliant acting makes this movie a must-watch! But having say that, I can't bring myself to watch it too often (I will be getting the bluray when it hit the store) as it is a very hard movie to watch but we can admire the brilliant acting and great story telling.

My rating for this movie is easily a 4.5/5 stars!  ;D

movie’s good ... but ultimately no pay-off .... taken as a homage of sorts to Taxi Driver and viewed as an expansion of Todd Phillips range as a director works better than viewing it as a DC/super-hero/Batman-related film even if it’s termed as a ‘standalone’ flick.

And yes Joaquin is good but personally the late Heath Ledger nails it as the Joker character. Watching the movie; i’d wished instead of DeNiro they should have cast .... Russell Crowe .... they would have provided a meta moment 😉😉😉
