Arthur was right. We aren’t kind to each other. Idk if it was the movie that was sad or it was that he was correct about so many things on our society.What is everyone’s opinion of Joaquin Joker vs. Heath Ledger Joker. Mari Beth McCarthy-Carstens I think JP is the best Joker. He taps into the character like no other. Ledger was a good bad guy but Phoenix gave the character so much depth. Joker put on a happy face poster

Exactly. It was so disturbing and he just disappeared, terrifyingly so, into character. Going to see it this weekend! I’ve been expecting Joaquin to be better and you all have confirmed my expectations. Can’t wait. Joaquin’s was much more realistic, in my opinion so his version was scarier. They both gave great performances, but I thought this movie was closer to “real life” than it was a typical “superhero movie”. Mari Beth McCarthy-Carstens I think you could easily believe the Phoenix Joker becomes the Ledger Joker. Mari Beth McCarthy-Carstens they played joker at extremely different points of his life. Ledger played joker when joker was an already established criminal mastermind which took years to craft. Phoenix played joker at his inception and very early part of his mania. You can’t compare them to each other. Mari Beth McCarthy-Carstens differs completely. This is more effective in the time line.
