There’s one part of the film that’s really stuck with me.

The crying of the poor little dude as joker kills his friend. The midget arguably has just a shit time of things as joker and ends up watching a brutal murder while fearing for his life. You can almost feel the fear coming from him.

Great movie, very dark. Thank fuck it's not a stereotypical comic book film, can't stand that bullshit.

Phoenix was incredible, there was really no one better to portray this type of Joker. Still nowhere near as good as Ledgers depiction ( No one will play the character better imo ) but Its a different type of Joker, not the same insane anarchist cartoon type, a more human, vulnerable and relatable version.

I'm actually going to see it again on the weekend. Fantastic film.

You could feel it. Even when he was standing by the door you could feel him shitting himself.

Just finished watching it there. The actual quality wasn't the best so it was hard to get a good feel for the film. Fucking ads popping up and sometimes the sound was off. Very dark film and Phoenix is phenomenal and perfect for the role. Crazy to think that the director behind The Hangover films made this.

I enjoyed it but I obviously need to see a better version before giving my proper take on it.

it stands for involuntarily celibate, guys who feel like they are disregarded by women and not desirable enough that any girl will choose them.

Basically loser types feeling sorry for themselves that are grouping together online. Normally I’d consider sympathy but the truth is that lots of them have put themselves in that situation and it’s completely within their control so hard to sympathise really.

look at that Elliott Rodger guy who went on a mass shooting spree, his problem was he was a creepy narcissist who came across like a wrong un.

same shit happens on the other side with man hating cat herders though as far as I can see but it really is some thing the level of scorn poured on these dudes but the feminist types. You’re not supposed to feel sympathy for men, especially the paler ones.
It's hard to feel sympathy for those that blame the world for their own lack of character. There are truly some men out there that are disfigured or unable to meet women due to some physical deformity.

But when you have normal guys blaming others for their lack of skills with it just creates a vacuum of misery.

Stop blaming the world and improve yourself. Simple. So no I don't feel bad for these guys.

Yep ... a lot of times you look at these dudes, and they can be quite young too and all they'd really need to do is eat better, train regularly and tidy their shit up ... it's not that fucking hard. Put down the Ben & Jerrys and Warhammer figurine, get on an exercise bike, fucking smile sometimes and brush your fucking teeth.

Most guys don't understand that confidence is one of the biggest factors, you need to learn to project confidence, even if you don't feel it inside, project it and women will gravitate more towards you. It's why guys suddenly find women more interested in them when they have a girlfriend, even if she's not there at that time ... it's because they're subconsciously acting in a more confident manner because they're not out hoping to score poon. Women smell neediness and desperation a mile away.

That's how I see it anyway.

These are facts. It's the man not the suit.

Just look at Elliot Rodger muppet. There was no reason looks wise why he couldn't have gotten a bird. His downfall was being a creepy, jealous physcho which no bird will ever find attractive.

Saw the film last night. Was brilliant. Pretty damn disturbing too. The way it was shot was incredible, and the score was was so good. Phoenix absolutely killed it, really creeped me the fuck out. De Niro was surprisingly really good too despite the small role he had (I say surprisingly cos let’s face it, he’s been phoning it in for a while now)
Apart from using gary "pedo" glitters music that is.....
