Just finished 'Joker' and I thought it pretty tame, nigh on rubbish, am I the only one?

I thought it was dull too.

Did Mr grumpy pants not get his cookies this evening... 

 

Personally thought Joker was an excellent movie (a great twist on an old story) as does just about every other person on the planet who's commented about it... 

 

Care to enlighten us with your top 3-5 movies so we can better understand what meets your "Standards"

That's not true. Google is your friend.

Joker review – the most disappointing film of the year

While the majority of critical reviews have been positive, there have also been those who thought the movie was terrible.

 While the negative response, just based on Twitter volume, appears to be in the minority, there are those who didn't just dislike the film, but outright hated it.

I can't publish a link in case I break TV rules. Many others thought it a terrible movie as I did. But other sheeple didn't, such as yourself.

Come on guys, we all have different tastes and opinions.

Doesn't mean anyone is wrong.

Different strokes for different folks and all that.

So true, just saw this list of top 25 movies of 2019. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/best-movies-224601238.html?guccounter=1  Have not seen all of the movies on the list, but as you say, very subjective, as most movie favorite lists are.  I like movies, but as you say we all have different tastes

I previously said that Joker is a film that should not be viewed by younger people, and that the DC comics relationship is not apropos.  Yey it was filmed well, had a followable story line, and entertaining.

On that list I've seen 4.

I've also got Marriage Story and Uncut gems ready to go.

 

The Joker - enjoyed it.

The Peanut Butter Falcon - enjoyed this one as well.

Rocketman - thought it was pretty good &

The Irishman - enjoyed it.

 

I have to say I've really lowered my expectations when it comes to movies.

 

I can't remember the last movie I watched that had the wow factor.

I mainly stick to TV series these days.

 

 

Yes, really enjoy many TV series out there, new and continuing. 

Haven't found Marriage Story, want to see, looks to be an intense drama

Waiting for Knives Out also, looks to be my kind of movie.

So, if anyone doesn't share your tastes they are "sheeple"? Joker has a 8.7 rating on IMDB BTW, so you are very much in the minority.

Tv series Mazhor AKA Silver Spoon

 

Came across this one on TPB the other day.
Two episodes in and I'm enjoying it.

Summary: The aimless pleasure loving son of a rich and powerful Russian arrested for street racing through Moscow's streets while high on drugs. To avoid a lengthy sentence his father pulls strings and as a last resort he is sent to work with the police for a year, with on-the-job training - or be disinherited.

LMFAO when somebody quotes "The Guardian" to back-up their argument.... 

 

Sorry, I'll stop laughing for just long enough to ask you to share with (enlighten) us on your top 3-5 movies...

 

 

Edit: I'll add mine (In no particular order) 

Usual Suspects

Se7en

John Wick / Taken 1

Most of the Bond Movies 

More of less any Sherlock Holmes movie/TV series... I'm a huge fan, Basil Rathbone would be the Sean Connery equivalent, Jeremy Brett the Roger Moore & Jonny L Miller the Daniel Craig

 

 

Edit 2: Movies I thought were pants that other people enjoyed

  • All of the Starwar movies after the Empire Strikes back (Being a little unfair here as I haven't managed to sit through a full screening of any of them, well I did one but that was only because I fell asleep in the CInema, they do make those Gold Class seats very comfortable)
  • Most 1st/2nd World War Movies (I did enjoy Saving Private Ryan, but Tom Hanks is great to watch in most movies) 
  • Any "Period" Movie/Drama (Boring zzz) 
  • John Wick / Taken 2 & 3 (Not sure this qualifies as I've never heard anybody say they were good movies)
  • Most Anthony Hopkins movies (Except Silence of the Lambs & even that I thought Brian Cox played him better in Manhunter... AH had much better lines)

When I 1st read your post I thought of Nightcrawler https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightcrawler_(film) ... Terrible movie.

 

But this one sounds very interesting, I'll add it to the "List".... 

 

Thanks 🙂 

I thought Nightcrawler was a ripping movie.

 

This documentary is a belter as well.

Was very disappointed with "ad Astra" and also with the new Natalie Portman film, "Lucy in the sky". IMO both films had weak storylines and not enough to keep one interested the whole movie.
