Joker I liked it. I didn't love it and didn't completely blow me away, but perhaps that due to the expectations on my end. Joachim Phoenix knocks it out of the park and the dark 80s aesthetic is beautifully filmed. It's actually a great character study since Phoenix takes up a huge majority of screen time. I just wished it went beyond the "sneak a movie in the superhero genre" bravado that Todd Phillips galivanted. It's Taxi Driver, King Of Comedy or even Falling Down with a splash of Fight Club with the Joker in it, wearing it's influences on it's sleeve, which makes it largely predictable. It's hard enough when it's a movie about one of the most iconic villains of all time, but to add straight up influences without going beyond them doesn't help. I won't say it's the gamechanger that the oversaturated superhero genre desperately needs, but it's definitely a step in the right direction.
