Really excited for it now. Went from absolutely no hype to really interested over the last few days. Footage sealed the deal. Pretty cool DC allowed them to make a character study like this.

The leaked script and story makes this movie seem really bad imo. The marketing department is doing a fantastic job for a movie made by an awful director tho
You mean the reaction to an alleged “leaked script”? This movie’s getting really good reviews so it sounds like you just want the movie to be bad.

Not gonna judge because even in leaked form he blew Ledger away, but how do you write a scene with Joker literally talking about LIVING IN A SOCIETY and not have someone notice?

If not for Phoenix's acting that would have been rather ho hum especially the dialogue coming from the Joker. I don't doubt this film isn't aiming for subtle but that was blunt and on the nose as it gets.

I...I actually didn't think the clip was all that great? Of course, I'm missing the context of the rest of the movie, but it seemed rather lackluster.

The twist and why hes upset is stupid. The director hasnt made a good movie yet. Its getting free press because of incels and people worried they’ll shoot up theaters.

its all marketing.

spoiler:
I saw a screening of this last week.

That was pretty tight. Between the reviews and this apparent climax of the movie, I've gone from pretty lukewarm to making time for it once it releases.

Phoenix is great of course but everything else about that was... not good? That dialogue is pretty bad. Are people just shocked seeing violence and swear words in a DC movie or something?

I'm in the same boat. Its great acting with a pretty boiler plate plot. I think its the combination of "serious" comic book movie plus all the festival praise that is causing all the hype. Or maybe folks on Era just don't watch that many movies?

Nice conspiracy theory. Anything else you’d like to say about other people’s opinions that are not your own? Hint: your opinion is just your opinion, film critics have their own as well.

Also, if you watched the movie last week, why are you talking about leaked scripts instead of telling us what you didn’t like that’s actually in the movie?

Yeah, I'm not sure if making this movie was a good idea.

Some of the events and rhetoric in those clips mirror actual real life tradgedies (like Aurora) and seeing them portrayed like this is super uncomfortable.

I love Joaquin Phoenix's interpretation of the Joker as a murderous, crazy man-baby. This clip was so tense.
