There have been 24 mass shootings since 2015. None of them have occurred since joker was released. Blaming a movie for the actions of a separate human being and trying to use tragedy as a means to knock down a movie you don’t like at the Oscars makes you a terrible person. Just saying 😉October 6, 2019 at 3:45 pm #1203124533
Joker was fantastic. Easily one of me favorite films/performances by an actor the last several years. Right there with Casey in Manchester by the seaSeptember 8, 2019 at 6:08 pm #1203064344
I love Joaquin Phoenix, but I’d advise my fellow fans not to get their hopes too high. He’ll most likely score a nomination, but he seems too abrasive for the Academy to actually get a win.
Roman Polanski literally raped a girl in the arse and got an Oscar, Joaquin will be fine lolSeptember 2, 2019 at 11:45 am #1203053611
Let’s be real. Marriage Story is going to be another overrated average movie that the Academy loves. So boring.
*sees generic, boring social justice movie that 99% of people would rather suck start a shotgun then watch.
We found our best picture winner!!!September 2, 2019 at 11:43 am #1203053603
Yeah Edgerton isn’t winning or getting nominated the year after Rami Malik swept for the exact same type of movie/performance. Fair or not that’s how this stuff works. He’s also hurt by such an early release date I feel like his movie will be forgotten.September 2, 2019 at 11:39 am #1203053593
It seems to me that every year the contender that generates the most butthurt (Leo, Casey Affleck, Gary Oldman, Rami Malik) wins the Oscar. Since the anti Joaquin stans are so against him winning it will probably happen lolSeptember 1, 2019 at 7:48 am #1203051765
Who cares? An Oscar is an OscarAugust 31, 2019 at 2:34 pm #1203050932
Imagine thinking the joker promotes incels. He hates everyone and wants the world to burn. Literal purpose of his character 🤪August 31, 2019 at 12:25 pm #1203050783
Are y’all selectively blind? Where is this unanimous praise? Starting MC in the mid-70s, after one festival screening that’s, to be polite, made almost completely of the demographic that would have loved it either way. When there are women in the audience, you’ll get this:
“In Joker — playing in competition here at the Venice Film Festival — Phoenix is acting so hard you can feel the desperation throbbing in his veins. He leaves you wanting to start him a GoFundMe, so he won’t have to pour so much sweat into his job again. But the aggressive terribleness of his performance isn’t completely his fault.” – TIME
*reads stanning Adam DriverAugust 31, 2019 at 12:13 pm #1203050764
It’s insane the movie is rated lower than a lot of Marvel superhero movies. This literally is a masterpiece. I honestly know it’s opinions, but I can’t fathom how that’s even possible.
There is a pro Disney-marvel bias. Obvious by this pointAugust 31, 2019 at 8:06 am #1203050411
Buddies, I loved OUATIH but… I agree that the hype will die… hopefully not for Brad Pitt’s performance.
I think the hype will fade but it will still be one of those movies that gets nominated across the board. I agree Brad Pitt is its only shot to win anythingAugust 31, 2019 at 8:05 am #1203050407
Yeah Joaquin is winning, the reception that the movie and his performance are getting will be unbeatable. He’s one of the best actors alive and he’s the overdue narrative, and playing a character people like. The movie will also be a box office smash. Adam Driver ain’t topping that narrative, the academy preferred to give Mahershala Ali a 2nd Oscar in 3 years over awarding him lolAugust 31, 2019 at 7:48 am #1203050391
If they deserve it who cares if they’re white or black or orangeAugust 30, 2019 at 5:59 pm #1203049602
Animatronic is the exception, not the rule. No one is playing someone white men adore as much as Freddie Mercury this year.
Pheonix will suffer from genre bias + the fact that someone already won for the same role. He’ll need more than great reviews and certainly won’t make it with a 49 MC score.
I totally expect Phoenix to deliver though.
