I saw it. Loved it. No idea why people would walk out of this movie. Bunch of pansies. It was more honest and less brutal than the new Rambo, which I also liked.

I also realized that when work stresses me out beyond belief, I laugh almost identical to the Joker. :eek: In private, of course.

Looks like the viral campaign of hyping incel violence has paid off. Stupid fucks fall for it every time.

I haven't watched a batman movie since Batman Begins.

Just watch reruns of BTAS, its really all you need. Batman is a comic book, not to be live action.

Yeah, this movie was great, look forward to watching it again.

Saw it tonight with some friends from work. I can't really say that I enjoyed it. It was well acted as everyone says. I guess if the aim was to make a dismal descent in hopelessness then they did a good job.

The new Rambo was torture porn. It was Saw for Even Dumber Idiots.™ It was the ruination of an actually complex character in John Rambo.

It was terrible.

I am glad I saw the new Rambo on a cheap show. I didn't think it was bad, just unremarkable.

It certainly didn't pull any punches when it came to their depiction of Latinos or the status of the cartels in Mexico. They were very superficial, almost so cliche it was painful at times.

The action was OK, and the traps used were inventive enough I kept going OOUCH when someone was a victim of one. But three days after watching there isn't much more that stuck with me.

I watched this, and my take away is, good movie, but not quite as good as people are saying.

I feel you could strip away the clown aspect and it wouldn't even be about joker, that being said.... it probably won't have a follow up movie, but if they make one I'll be interested.

I felt exactly the same way. It was well acted but I didn't even get the vibe that this was the guy that was going on to become Batman's nemesis.

Agreed that it would be interesting to see this Joker develop further but I believe they already said that this was a one off movie.

Just got back from the Joker. Good movie that had enough slow parts I almost nodded off a few times. It could have easily trimmed 30 minutes.

However, as others have said, the intensity in particular scenes as the movie reaches it's close is off the charts and you definitely aren't bored.

For me this was about the last 45 minutes or so after he reads something interesting (I don't want to be more specific cause of spoilers).

I don't know if the Joker ever really had a DC origin story in the comics, I am not a big enough fan of Batman to have followed him, but if not this one is AWESOME.

I was kind of hoping that at the end of the movie, you were going to find out that the previous two hours was a complete lie and the Joker was just messing with us the whole time.
