**Note: no spoilers. Well ok, it’s a small one. You guys know Joker is bad person, right?**
- Joaquin Phoenix portrayed the best Joker since the late Heath Ledger. I can’t decide which one is better though. Not yet at least, as I’m very impressed of what I saw just now. Give the man The Oscar now.
- DC should stick to create dark, thought provoking, and cinematic movies. Let Marvel entertain us with humors. The only thing DC ever try to produce laughter is through Joker’s medical condition.
- Besides Joaquin’s acting, one thing I like most of this movie is the building up of Joker’s character. As a mentally ill person, as mischievous mob leader, and as witty villain. With the villain this good, I hope the next Batman will be up to scratch. No pressure, Robert Pattinson.
- Finally: yes it’s dark. It might make you feel sad for the guy named Arthur. But I think it’s too much to suggest the movie might be harmful for your mental health. I saw many more movies with violent scenes (The Raid, for example). As Joker said in another movie: “Don’t be too serious” ☺️
VERDICT: 9/10. Highly recommended. Go watch them now. And yes, don’t bring the kids. Unless you want to make ‘Arthur’ out of your little ones. Seriously.
