Director: Todd Phillips

Year: 2019     Run Time: 122 min

An original standalone origin story of the iconic villain not seen before on the big screen, it's a gritty character study of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society, and a broader cautionary tale.

Tim's Review

Starring Robert De Niro as The Joker...This is the story of The Joker from Batman and Robin show from years ago.

Gregg's Review

I'm gonna give this movie 5 bags of popcorn, and I'm gonna throw in a little movie ticket. Not a memento of a movie ticket, not a souvenir ticket, but an actual movie ticket which I hope is given to you so that you can actually see this movie because if you'd seen it you'd know that Joaquin Phoenix plays The Joker. Not Robert De Niro.
