      I need to come out of my cinema hiatus and watch this.

      I've heard it's quite dark?

      It is, as in HR's post, this is not a glamorous Marvel/DC film, very realistic in its portrayal of the main character. Not going to say anything that will spoil it for you, but a lot can be transferred into today's injustices. Should win a lot of awards, the cinema photography is fantastic, the directing and editing best I've seen in a long time, and the soundtrack is good too.

      Definitely going to catch Joker but will wait a couple of weeks to see it in quieter theatres (I like empty theatres!). Good to see, as RedPuppy says, that it isn't "yet another" comic book movie either.

      I was looking at director Todd Phillips filmography and was amazed to see that sex comedy Road Trip was his first film! And he directed that Starsky and Hutch film with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson (which I quite liked!)

      Safe to say he's come a long way since then if the reviews of this are anything to go by!

      Just back from Joker and well worth all the praise it's getting.

      Fantastic portrayal from Joaquin Phoenix and he really inhabits the character. Difficult to say if he surpasses Heath but definitely up there.

      The film itself is excellent and as RP said in his post the cinematography is really good and it's such well made film. Anyone who's a fan of Scorsese like myself will see the parallels with King Of Comedy but it doesn't detract from the film in my view and is almost like a bit of an homage.

      Diego Armando Maradona!! :laugh:

      Documentary, a lot of it based on his time in Napoli, how he was treated pretty much like a God until he knocked Italy out of the World Cup in 1990 and then the downfall dealing with his links to the mafia, fathering a child, who he didn't accept until a couple of years ago, drug-taking etc.

      Just found it an interesting watch.

      Re watched the The Wolf Of Wall Street on Netflix recently.

      Pretty bang average by Scorsese's very high standards. Not nearly enough from the FBI perspective but I suppose by doing that the film would have started bringing in comparisons with that other DiCaprio con/crook movie Catch Me If You Can (which is a far superior film and still DiCaprio's best performance ever  8)  )

      Seen The Irishman during the week and although it's on Netflix in a few weeks it's well worth a trip to the cinema if it's showing near you.

      Scorsese on top form and even though it's 3 and a half hours long always holds your interest and one of the film's of the year for me.

      Will have to catch it. Do you know which chains are showing it? Don't think it's on at my local cinema.

      I saw Le Mans 66 (titled Ford v Ferrari in America) earlier. Fantastic film. Matt Damon and Christian Bale putting in fantastic performances and ultimately a fine tribute to Ken Miles.

      Looking to watch that sometime this week, from the clips I've seen it does look a good film.

      Also wanting to watch the new film Knives Out with Daniel Craig & Chris Evans which is out the end of the month.

      Le Mans 66 is next on my list then Knives Out.

      On The Irishman we were lucky over here as Omniplex, the biggest chain in Ireland, was showing it in virtually every location so only a couple mins away from me. I don't think it got a wide release anywhere else and think possibly only London.

      Just got around to watching Yesterday a week or so ago, have watched it twice again since then, once with the family. Absolutely loved it. While it plays as a somewhat simple little feel good film, I actually thought there were some intricate things going on and very thought provoking in a lot of different ways for me.

      Yeah The Irishman is another one that sounds like it'll be a good watch, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Stephen Graham all appear in what should be another cracker from Scorcese.

      Actually ended up watching Le Mans66 last night, superb film. Bale and Damon are brilliant and the proper anal retentiveness of the Ford Execs really shines through from the likes of Bernthal and Lucas, only let down was reading about his death and then learning that Ken Miles actually took part in the 65 Le Mans, which obviously differs from the film.

      Also great to see Le Mans actually being bigged up as it seems to have become a bit of a forgotten race in the last decade or so.

      Le mans is pure car porn. Damon is great but Bale is a bit annoying and they shouldve made better use of The Sonics Have Love

      Too much of a cliched song these days probably.

      Yeah I never knew Miles took part in Le Mans a year previous either but I don't think it detracted from the film. Being a film I suppose they are allowed to take artistic license. Like you I loved the tension with the Ford Execs as well.

      There are a lot more great films from that era of motor racing to be made such was the level of bravery, innovation and sheer iconography. (There's bound to be a great film on Jim Clark somewhere down the line!)

      Seen this last night and it was superb. As you say Damon and Bale were fantastic alongside some great support. Also the cinematography and sound design was top class and really put you in the seat of those cars.
