      @Chris Akane ASMR I totally agree with your comments the dance he did. Before he went onto the Murray show classic before the curtain opened

    The problem I have with this joker is that he’ll be 60 when Bruce becomes Batman, making him too old

        Great video thank you for taking the time to put this together! Great insights! Some I noticed but a lot I didn't. I truly feel he did a spectacular job with this role and was quite impressed by it!

          So. Like. You know you've just made up 80% of this and given vague, silly reasons and then acting like they're facts.

                  while i would say heith ledger’s joker is better overall, joaquin phoenix’s joker was by far more complex than ledger’s

                                        Heath ledger is still the best joker because he's the most like the comic books, a master mind and dangerous enough to go toe to toe with Batman. Joaquin Phoenix is his own thing, a very human joker and not really a weapon of mass destruction. He was brilliant in the movie and very credible but would be no match for a pissed off Batman. Also consider that Joaquin Phoenix had a whole movie where he's the main Star and Heath Ledger only appeared in a couple of scenes.

                                          From the jump, I knew Joaquin Phoenix would be a great joker, whilst most were doubtful 😒

Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training, its health benefits and meditation. He performs this in order to calm himself down in the bathroom scene after he shot the Wall Street guys in the subway. He does tai chi before his entrance to the Murray show to center and focus himself to get rid of all of his nervousness. Tai chi is calming to him which he was probably advised to do when he feels anxious.

                                                                                          only seen the film once so far but I think he gets given more than 6 bullets with the revolver, and the camera isn't constantly on him as he chases the last wall street guy so I don't think the 7/8 revolver shots are meaningful. Could be wrong though
