The Joker out next month has some decent trailers  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAGVQLHvwOY  critics saying it's an oscar worthy masterpiece. Will it live up to the hype I'd wonder?

Got an eight minute standing ovation at the Venice film festival.


Great trailer and I think Phoenix is one of those actors who has the madness to play the role properly I'm looking forward to it!

That looks epic and for once the trailer doesn't 'spoil' the upcoming movie.

Saw the trailer at the cinema last week and I couldn't think of a better mad b**tard to take the role on. Apart from possibly Joe Brolly.

Phoenix is touted as getting an oscar for the performance. Ledger got one for his previous protrayal of the Joker. Bound to be unusual for two different actors to get oscars for the same character if it happens.

On Quientin.......he definitely is an acquired taste as screen said earlier
Pulp Fiction - good
Reservoir Dogs - good
Jackie Brown - trash
Kill Bill - trash
Unglorious Basterds - trash
Django - trash
Iím not a movie buff and certainly not one to like a movie because itís fashionable to. And, in reference to previous posts, I think anyone who doesnít like Shawshank is just being a knob pretending they donít like it to be somehow above the poor masses.

But I really enjoyed all the above mentioned QT movies, apart from Jackie Brown, which Iíve never seen.

Whoís the knob?  A person who likes SHawshank but doesnít rate it as the best film of all time, alongside The Godfather? Cop on to yourself.

Watched Joker this evening and thought it was a great piece of film making. The most uncomfortable 2 hours ever but exceptionally well done just eery stuff going on the whole time and not being sure where itís going next.

Saw some poor reviews and some good ones but I can see why some live it and some would hate it. Definitely worth seeing though.

I would highly recommend it though be prepared to squirm in your seat a lot!!

Best advice I can give about Joker is go watch it and don't allow yourself read or hear anything about it.

the thing that struck me about Joker was that Joaquin Phoenix was in like 98% if the scenes, the film was all about him and he took the bull by the horns and completely nailed it, unreal performance.

I do that with any film I watch.

Yeah saw it at the weekend.
A bit cheesy, but decent light entertainment. Would make you want to listen to springsteen again. 6.5/10

Not yet.

Reviews are mixed.

Being a big Springsteen fan I'll give it a lash when it hits Amazon.

The Joker one of the best psychological thrillers i have watched. A great piece of acting by Joaquin Phoenix certainly Oscar worthy.

He's on the Graham Norton Show tonight along with Robert Di Nero.
