Spoiler:
About halfway into the movie, I was leaning towards not liking it. Thought it was a bit too slow, way too overwrought, and frankly wasn't especially interesting.

And then he killed those guys on the train.

From that moment going forward, it was absolutely engrossing. The depictions of mental illness - particularly the spiral downwards with his hallucinations - his interactions with Alfred and the Waynes, his discovery of his mother's severe mental illness and abusive past, the discovery that he was imagining his relationship with Zazie Beetz, all the way through his murder of Murray Franklin...it was just so much to process and I couldn't pull my eyes away. Adding in the class warfare elements to it was an excellent choice, IMO.

I hope this isn't the last time we see this Joker. I want thjs to be an origin story that leads to his appearance in future Batman films.
Just watched it. I wasn't planning on it but a buddy dragged me to it.

It was everything i expected but so much more. Absolutely brutally uncomfortable and literally painful to watch. And for the first 75% of the movie it felt like a price far too heavy to pay. But I loved the final 30 minutes. I give the filmmakers every imaginable credit. It was beautifully crafted though painful. The metamorphosis was clearly earned and well put together.

I generally dislike hard and discomforting movies but I am walking away a big fan.

I also probably won't ever watch it again.

First ep of Watchmen was fantastic and it looks like it's going to be an excellent series. Can't wait for ep 2.

The first two Disney Star Wars movies in the trilogy were so horrific that I am intrigued on how they will make another terrible movie.

I finally saw the Karate Kid remake and it was good! I am now down to see updates of Flight of the Navigator, The Wizard, and WarGames.

Jenny Lewis should accuse you of touching her breast for such heresy.

I completely forgot they had two endings for Little Shop of Horrors. The original cut where the plants take over the world did not go over well in the household. I had to YouTube the theatrical cut where Seymour and Audrey live happily ever after to satisfy the crowd.

Power was really good the first couple of seasons. Good cast and storylines. Then I think the creator and writers got too big headed. Stil watch it but it's kinda ridiculous.

Joker was terrible..

For all of the praise I had been hearing about the film, I was expecting so much more.

What a waste of 2 hours.
