    I've just got back from seeing it, I thought it was excellent.  Joaquin Phoenix was incredible, definitely made the role his own - which is saying something given all the iconic incarnations he's up against.

    I haven’t seen this movie yet but for some reason I get a “clockwork orange” type of feel. Am I wrong?
    I haven't seen Clockwork for years but maybe slightly?  The violence isn't celebrated though....it's a painful story

    I never imagined a better Joker performance than Heath’s.....but god damn, this one was unfucking believable. I loved every second of this movie.

    not for kids

    So my wife should win the debate over whether or not to take my kid (15) to his first R rated movie?
    It’s not an easy watch, to see the worst aspects of society in your face for 2 hours... it’s unnerving , I guess you need to know what your getting into. It’s def like no other comic movie, if the guy didn’t have face paint, and the mention of Thomas Wayne throughout you wouldn’t feel like your watching a comic book film.

    Taxi Driver &  King of Comedy is really what your watching... so if you think your kid can handle that, kids are all different. I do see why there is concern over the movie in this crazy world we live in.
    Definite Taxi Driver vibe. I was actually thinking of a young Deniro in the Joker role actually

    Just saw it last night and your take on it is pretty spot on. Upon leaving the theater, my wife asked what I thought about it. Replied something to the effect of it was dark and disturbing, but that's exactly what the director was going for. When I asked her the same question, she said "Yeah, I agree. I feel like I need to go hug a puppy now." Lol

    didn't he want money from them for using the song or something, but they denied him any royalties?

    From what I understand, he doesn't own the rights to his music anymore.  I'm just questioning morally whether it is right to use it, like is there a line someone would have to cross before it would be deemed inappropriate?  And if there is a line, surely pedophilia would be it?  I'm not super offended, just not sure a film about someone who was abused as a child should be using that music, maybe that was the point?

    Isn't is really the same thing as using a Michael Jackson song though?

    Michael never convicted

    even though paying $20M sure sounds guilty to me

    MJ gets a pass because he had the money to buy himself out of stuff most people would be in jail for for a long ass time.
