6 or 7.  I don't plan on seeing it, but I occasionally like DC, like Justice League.

The problem for me:

1-My favorite movie is The Shawshank Redemption so Joker is not my favorite.
2-I prefer The Dark Knight so Joker is not the best D.C movie in my opinion.
3- I didn't prefer the previous DC movies so the 3rd doesn't fit.
4-I don't prefer it as much as the other DC movies because the Yes The Dark Knight Trilogy was good but all the others were crap, Joker is way better.
5-It was not terrible, it is a masterpiece.
6-I have seen it
7- I care about Joker

So none of the options fit for me, but it is my 5th favorite movie of all time.

1-The Shawshank Redemption
2-The Dark Knight
3-Inception
4-Memento
5-Joker

Maybe you can add to your poll an option like:

The best movie of the decade.
or
The best movie of the year.

My take is similar. I consider it one of the better movies from DC, but not the best. Maybe option 3 can be tweaked into "I liked it, but it is not my favorite DC movie"?

I also agree. It is worst than The Dark Knight, it is much better than the rest of the DC Movies (except maybe Batman Begins).


Contrary to Cinephile, I don't consider it one of the best movies there are, on the contrary, I feel the Golden Lion was undeserved and I'm sure there will be other award contenders I will like more.

It was simply good, not spectacular, not unique.

An option about it falling below The Dark Knight but above other DC Movies would be great.

My vote:
I haven't seen it yet. I may see it when it becomes available on Netflix or other streaming video services.

What about a "Marvel rulez!" or Betty White option? I had several more votings in my superhero polls, when I have let be the people's free will to not understand superhero movies. I know it's a supervillain movie, but the rules seem to be equal.

I think there can be a long-winded option, because until the first murder, it slowed a little, but when Arthur Fleck reached the point, the movie speeded up continuosly. Many people may be bored until this point. I know some have left before the 1/3 of the movie. I was entertained the whole time.

I would plea for a big atmospheric button, because 'Joker' had a very plausible atmosphere. It felt like a real setting, somehow. It didn't feel artificial at any time. The special artificial atmosphere is  what you want, when you enter the Marvel cinema. There it's a sign of quality, coporate ident! You dive into another universe! 'Joker'  was more reality bound from feeling it. And not high gloss. It was another make, another brand. I like it very much, too in it's own way. Everytime when DC tried to do it in high gloss, it became unreal. One of the worst examples is 'Green Lantern'! Rubbish!

The way, Warner does now gets me as a viewer more than the old way.
(Except the Nolans trilogy - that was great).
