I actually saw it twice, enjoyed it much more the second time.  The only other movie to watch was Zombieland 2 and I was not a big fan of the first one.  A hot girl zombie and a clown zombie, that's all I liked about it.

I need to see Joker again but I'll wait for Blu ray to come out.  Only one viewing and well it left me speechless

I knew you'd love it!  :red_heart:

It's an amazing experience I want to go check out again. Will buy a proper quality version when it is available and not just the censored Aussie version that will surely appear.

Unsure of the complaints, as I never saw what they were stating. maybe some people live too deep in their own agendas and make assumptions about things. Which in a lot of ways is an aspect of the fuel that allows Joker to arise and awaken out of his abuse by others!

He himself states he has no political agenda at all. No one was truly decent towards him apart from the dwarf fella. Even the girl, that was a figment of his imagination due to the little show of casual socialising in the lift.

Joker being a fractured memory of how he got where he is before escaping the asylum is a pretty damned interesting take!

Why would they censor it?  It wasn't that violent.

 :exciting:I meant more as a look at a side of society that is shunned and swept under the rug.  Not a political statement at all.  Mental health and illness is treated as a dirty problem in this world and this film was trying to address this.  I didn't read any negative reviews or any reviews other than what i saw here and on a few other sites i visit
 And saw a disturbing amount of people calling it an Incel film and other nonsense of it being a meme.  Personally i have clue what a meme or incel is but I know i dont like either.
And why is Australia so strick on censorship? Seems quite odd to me

And please no explanation of what meme, incel, gif or any other internet lingo. I dont care to know and rather not know
I feel like this world needs to have more films of this nature in the mainstream

The film was damn fine. Strong performances all round and I'm actually glad they went for their own story, of which I was originally skeptical about.

It's not flawless though and a lot of the praise its been getting feom people adoring it for its portrayal of mental illness is bitter sweetly deserved in my opinion. Now, its been years since I watched it, but I feel like it stole several, almost identical scenes from The Machinist. As well as a rather significant plot twist/detail. It wasn't subtle either. Not to mention the Taxi Driver, and King of Comedy similarities.

Overall I really enjoyed it. But I feel like it straight up stole several key scenes, and leaned heavily on aspects of other films, which prevent it from being anything super amazing. I'll certainly pick it up in 4K though.
