The Joker Movie opens today. The awesome Joaquin Phoenix, Todd Phillips & Scott Silver brilliantly reimagine the character as never seen before! 2 thumbs up from that old-school, comic book version… me
The release of Joker has been met with controversy, which has only been compounded by Phoenix’s characteristic strange behavior in interviews. The controversies surrounding Joker have done little to diminish enthusiasm for the film, which is already set to have a huge opening weekend. Joker isn’t likely to pull in anywhere near the kind of money that Avengers: Endgamemade in 2019, but it’s still set to have an impressive showing for a film that is intended to be a standalone DC movie with an R-rating.
Let’s see some Critics opinion about Joker and Joaquin Phoenix:
A Nightmare on Bread Street
Joaquin Phoenix’s performance in Joker Movie is nothing short of Oscar-worthy and he fully commits to the role mentally and physically. Todd Phillips delivered a game-changing comic book film, and I cannot wait to see it again.
Joker is a masterpiece. This film is sinister and uncomfortable in the best way; I’m actually just shock it exists… This is a DC film. And it is DARK AND DISTURBING. I am in pure awe and I’m actually delirious.
Joker was just… Just, just WOW. So, the Academy Award for Best Actor must go to Joaquin Phoenix
I saw Joker and it is unlike anything before it. The movie is dark, thrilling, and chilling. An insane masterpiece.
The movie absolutely transcends being a comic book film and acts as a character study which, at times. The movie will make audiences uncomfortable in wild ways. 10/10
JOKER is a bold, bodacious love letter to Scorsese’s TheKing Of Comedy, told through the lens of DC’s most iconic villain. Dark, disturbing, brutal & sad, it’s about an abused man who doesn’t start living until he’s dead inside. Joaquin Phoenix is so damn good Joker Movie
What I love most in JOKER – aside from Phoenix’s guttural performance & some terrific cinematography- is seeing the humanity in this character, even if that humanity slowly slips away. It’s unlike any comic book origin story you’ve seen. Divisive? Probably. But ferociously unique
Joker has been receiving unanimous praise from critics after its Venice debut, where it received a thunderous standing ovation, with critics calling it a “darkly funny”, “thrilling”, “tragic” “masterpiece” anchored by a “powerful, Oscar worthy performance” from Joaquin Phoenix.
