Movie Review: Joker

I did not like this movie. There, I said it. This was not a popular opinion at the screening I attended. Even my friend that saw it with me thought I was crazy. He LOVED it.

The movie is an origin story for Batman's most famous villain. It is dark and violent. And boring. So boring. Twice I closed my eyes to get some rest. Joaquin Phoenix is a great actor. He put his heart into this role. He even lost fifty two pounds to play the part. But good acting alone doesn't make a great movie. The story line is slow and drags on for two hours.

That's all I have to say about that.
