My Thoughts on Joker (SPOILERS)

Sun, Oct 27th, 2019

Another quick one this week, I don’t have anything else to post this week.


So last week, I saw the movie Joker, and thought I’d give my thoughts here.

I didn’t expect much, from the fact DC already released a movie this year, Shazam, which made me worry DC was going the way of Marvel, and pumping out bland movies multiple times a year, and making some huge cinematic universe.

Also, neckbeards were praising it to the high heaven saying they can relate to it. I didn’t wanted to be associated with those guys.

My brother bugged me to watch it, though, and I finally gave in.

Leaving the cinema, I thought it was okay, but thinking about it more and more, I thought it was great!

It’s one of those movies that really gets you thinking ages after watching it. That’s a very good sign.

Getting my main criticism out of the way, I feel like the film didn’t do enough build up for one to really feel what the protagonist (whose name I forget) was going through.

<Spoiler Territory>
The first kill happened in the first third of the movie, and felt almost out of nowhere. Maybe there was a reason behind this, though, like they didn’t want people to actually feel inspired to kill people, so whatever.

One thing I found interesting were the delusions that he had a girlfriend, which makes me wonder what else happened throughout that was also in his head.

Another thinking point was: Is Joker actually a good guy? Is Batman just serving the rich so they can continue fucking over the poor? The movie really painted Bruce Wayne’s dad as kind of a piece of shit, didn’t it?

</Spoiler Territory>

One thing I loved were the deathscenes! Ssome of them are seriously fucked up! I strangely like fucked up death scenes… should I seek professional help?

So yeah, I think Joker is definitely worth a watch. Some cinemas are even showing 70mm screenings. A local one in my city is.

That’s all I have to say about the movie.

Until next week, A’m oot.
