No threads on this yet? Have to remedy that.

Went to see the Joker film at the cinema over the weekend.

Absolutely fantastic. Joaquin Phoenix does a great job all the way through, hard to watch but also very difficult to look away from.

It's technically a superhero film, but it's absolutely nothing like one in many ways. No CGI, no long action scenes, etc. In fact, I can't think of a single explosion in the whole film. Instead it's a very dark, brooding film. A war of attrition between the world and the main character's limited grasp on reality. Think Mean Streets, Taxi Driver and Falling Down.

Excellent work.

Yep best film of the year for me, fantastic, hopefully this will wake up film studios and we'll see more films with story rather than these mind numbing PG CGI fests, looks like it's going to kill at the box office.

Bit of a stir today for using a gary glitter track in the film soundtrack

Looking forward to seeing it.

However, lot of bad press today due to the fact they used a Gary Glitter song in one of the scenes.

Probably the best film I've seen all year. A disturbing look at a mans decent into madness. Joaquin Phoenix is absolutely brilliant.

I know people are kicking off about Rock N Roll Part 2 being used, but it worked for me.

I was really looking forward to seeing it and had purposely avoided watching any trailers or reading about it.

Iím actually a little disappointed - I thought it was ok only.

I thought it was a phenomenal acting performance but a pretty dull film. Half of the movie is him dancing and usually in slow motion. Seen worse but hoped for more given all the hype and buzz.

Terrible film, too dark for its own good. I can see why some might like it but not for me.

Having read nothing about it and hearing just a few snippets I expected a rather dark superhero movie but what I got was a slightly upbeat taxi driver! As a stand alone it was ok only - overhyped for me!

US media were poking enough sticks I can't help but feel they're somewhat disappointed with the all the free publicity they gave this film with no scandal to report about in return.

As a standalone film it was great.

This Joker couldn't handle Batman though, he'd XXXXXX his pants

Not seen it yet, but looking forward to it.

Looks quite good going off the trailers.

Tend to take reviews with a pinch of salt.

Staggering performance by Phoenix. Should win the Oscar but probably won't.

Enjoyed it. Nothing like a Batman film. Can understand why Yanks don't like it.

Haven't seen it yet but I'm curious. Does the fact that it's set in the Batman universe (i.e. Gotham City) make any difference to the film or is it just a bit of a wheeze to get more people to go and see the story of a man turing to crime as a result of mental disintergration?

I don't want to give much away but that's not really what happens. It's set in Gotham, the familiar faces of the Waynes are there. There is unrest etc. in the city. Batman isn't really a superhero in the superpower sense, unless wealth is a superpower, so it doesn't require a superhero vibe. It's grounded in reality unlike the Marvel stuff. It has to be in Gotham and it has to be Joker for the film to work.

Maybe it could work as a standalone film outside of the Batman universe but I think the fact that it is a familiar character, from a new angle, in a familiar world is the reason they don't have to spend too much time world-building because we already know a lot about Gotham so it can concentrate on the story.

Just seen it. Absolutely fantastic film. Cant understand why people are hating on it. I suspect its not comic book enough for the die hard fans. Had a lot of King Of Comeby in there too i thought.

Dark gritty film, I thought it was excellent piece of work.
A mans slow decent into madness, some fantastic acting in it.

Saw it last night, brilliant film. Difficult to watch at times, take away the batman tie in and itís an even better film . I think it will become a classic

I enjoyed it, although Phoenix is good he's simply not in the class of Cesar Romero.
