    7.40 Where are you getting the stats for Aquaman's 3D Imax experience box office figures Grace? Did it really make a big percentage of the box office total?

    For all the idiots…. (Somewhat including grace) who thought that Shazam "Bombed" At the box office. What you're seeing with Gemini Man is the definition of bombing at the box office.

    Is The Farewell an Asian foreign language film?? I felt it was more Asian American and definitely had Mandarin in it.. but didn't necessarily feel like it was a completely foreign film.

    If they really want the ratings they might just nominate Endgame and Joker so that the trades can make a Marvel vs. DC frenzy up for them.

    No offense to Heath Ledger cuz he too did an amazing job, but it shouldn’t matter in the least what Dark Knight won or was nominated for. This movie is great and Phoenix nailed this role. For the dipshits of Hollywood not to see that is a joke.
    And Grace- nobody worth a shit puts stock into R/T scores.

    The Addams family should be called the Lilith family.
    If award voters don't vote for the joker, they're a bunch of clowns accomplishing nothing.

    If it gets nominated for screenplay, it will be adapted, because it takes in to account the characters and the world, which already exist in other medias.

    Nah Joker won't hit a Billion by a long, long way. Also no Oscar noms either. Also Wonder Woman was piss poor so definitely didn't deserve any.

    I officially stopped trusting Rotten Tomatoes as a viable source after they reviewed this movie at a 68%. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Will Joker come out in China though? If so definitely a Billion. But rather it dues or not. With that budget it’s a grand slam.

    Aquaman had a different tone. And it’s the biggest DCEU film. Tone isn’t the only reason on why DC films are big or not. I actually like to love all the DCEU. But rather I do or not, that have been split amongst audiences and critics.

    WB should stick to ‘arthouse’ films with avant garde acting and stories. This is their strength. Stop competing with MCU. DC WB has finally found its step. WW, Aquaman, Joker all more stand alone films. Stop connecting them.

    Even though joker is a comicbook character it feels like an movie made for adults and kids cannot watch or enjoy it where else Endgame is for almost everyone, joker deserves screenplay award but for best actor i would support RDJ forever even if he was playing himself all along as Iron man. And for vfx and score its clear its a win for Marvel even costume. But joker is a Gem we get every 10years

    I'm tired of some idiots dissing this masterpiece because of the taxi driver similarities.

    I myself haven't even seen Taxi Driver so I don't care. Joker is its own movie. Some things happened differently from what I've heard.

    It's like saying that "The Dark Knight" isn't good because it's too much like the "Departed" or The "Winter Soldier" is terrible because it draws to much from "All The Presidents Men"

    Just stop it. Leave the nitpicking to the "tedious critics" and enjoy cinema.

    When you drive sports car you enjoy it. You don't start the engine and perform a safety crash test.

    Leave that to the dummies 😉

    If I'm honest about it, the screenplay was OK, not something to write home about, but Joaquin Phoenix's performance is Oscar worthy. He carries the entire movie. I want to see it again, but this time look for things I might have missed the first time around. I agree with others: You can't compare Phoenix and Heath Ledger because it's like comparing apples to oranges, but I'll be really angry if the academy doesn't at least nominate Phoenix for an Oscar. It may be the only time in history where 2 actors win an Oscar for portraying the same character. And the performances are COMPLETELY different!

    The irony is that Joker had more in common with Batman 89 than TDK. 1. The dark humor. 89 Joker says "Bob, gun" then out of the blue blows Bob's brains out. Joker 19 asks Murray a question then out of the blue blows Murray's brains out. 2. Joker 89 shoots his authority figure (Grissom) after a conversation then casually remrks 'What a day' Joker 19's what a day moment comes after he has a conversation with his authority figure (the shrink) then he casually jaunts down the hall, 3. Joker 89 confronts an innocent (Vicki Vale) then tries to deform her face with his acid flower. Joker 19 confronts an innocent (young Bruce) and deforms his face with his fingers. All Ledger did was blow things up. He literally negated what could have been a what a day moment by wearing a dress.

    We have to remember that Joker is NOT part of the DCEU and was never intended to be. It was also always meant as a one-off film, not a franchise starter. I doubt we'll see a sequel or see the DCEU shift to match the tone and look of this film. At best, this performance will encourage WB to continue making non-DCEU "experimental" films.

    Unpopular opinion: While I would love to see a sequel to Joker, possibly with the Bat in it, I don't think DC needs to make it. They've got such a huge roster of amazing characters they could dip into, and any one of them, if done with the same amount of care Joker was, can keep this DC Renaissance Grace talks about going

    I don’t know anybody that goes out and watches a movie because of an Oscar. Outside of make-believe land, I’m not too sure Oscars carry much weight with the general movie audience since 1978.

    Imagine building a mega collaboration comic movie for 10 years, step by step, and finally reached the conclusion, only for a freaking clown take away the award lol.

    Still, Joker is better than Infinity and Endgame combined.
