    This is a excellent film. Joaquin Phoenix does a brilliant job in it, and deserves a Oscar for it. PQ/AQ are both fantastic and the SteelBook is beautiful.

    Fantasy character, Real life emotions/story

    Get this movie, it is an instant classic. No spoilers here but prepare yourself for a deep emotional experience. At the end of this movie you’ll won’t look at society the same. It’s a movie based on a fantasy character but the emotion and story telling of this film is as if it was based on a true story, simply because what takes place in the film happens everyday in this cruel unforgiving world! 6 stars without a question!

    Joker is probably hands down the best movie of 2019. An absolute must see. It's more than just a comic book movie for another comic book character. This is in depth with some very close to home, real world issues while slowing watching a mentally ill man descend into utter madness

    Not your typical superhero movie by a long shot, all about the story, proper origin story. I loved the intensity of this movie and how uncomfortable it makes you feel (in a good way), absolutely recommend it! I mean nominated for 11 Oscars... Steelbook version is great, just wish the cover art was a bit better.

    This is a great movie, I saw it the one time it came out and waited to get my copy.. Phoenix as the joker is money. I just hope he takes on the roll again.

    Expensive but poorly made

    Tiny piece of plastic that holds the second disc came broken. Returned to best buy and now it seems to be sold out everywhere, if you can charge people that much for a movie the least you can do is make the case durable. Other than that the artwork on the case is great along with the movie itself.

    Cinematic Masterpiece

    Joker 2019 is perhaps one of Pheonix's best roles of his career. Those who have casted this movie need to be commended for their efforts. I believe this because as the title says, this movie is quite the masterpiece imho. I'm also hoping that Hollywood finally recognizes this, and that Pheonix wins an Oscar or something for his role as a Joker that is different, but quite familiar. He has all of the maniacal elements of a crazy Joker, but it is told in such a way that one can kind of feel sorry for him. Without given too much away for those who have not seen it yet, let's just say he gets more insane as the story unfolds. But the reason behind his insanity in the story, and is quite different than those in the past. I haven't read too many comics with the joker, but Pheonix's performance in this film, is one of the best of this generation. This Bluray+4K set is perfect for anyone's collection, and for those who want to own a piece of theatrical brilliance. Kudos to Best Buy for having a special edition of this great film.

    Absolutely Brilliant!

    This is one film that definitely merits every bit of the praise it continues to receive. Not just for the performance that drives it but also for many of its artistic and technical choices. The Gotham it recreates is reminiscent of a time in the 70s when places like Times Square weren’t exactly known for being the family friendly attractions they are today. It was a gutsy decision to tackle such an iconic character’s origin story on the big screen but that gamble certainly paid off. The steelbook itself features a very well done glossy finish to it with some inner print.

    A Fantastic Reimagining

    With all of the constant flash, bang, and effects of modern comic book movies, it’s truly refreshing to see a deep dive character piece centered around one of comics’ most famous villains: the Joker. While many may not like that it’s not accurate to the comics, I think most would agree that Joaquin Phoenix’s performance is a runaway success and the film breaks new yet familiar ground with its aesthetic and tone. Seeing this movie on 4K UHD is the best way to experience it as the black levels and contrast of the darker scenes is gorgeous and the reds, greens, and neons of other scenes truly pop off the screen. The score is also a truly amazing triumph that captures the essence of the character and the film. This is 100% worth buying and adding to your collection. There isn’t a whole lot in terms of special features, but what they do include covers the segments of the film you want to learn more about. It also comes with a free digital redemption code which, when you redeem it, the iTunes version includes an additional special feature of a film commentary track!

    Never before have I watched a movie so artfully crafted and we thought out until this movie graced us. On top of that this exclusive steel case edition makes owning what I consider to be the perfect movie feel even better as a collector. I highly recommend this movie to anyone and this edition of it in particular.

    A Modern Masterpiece!

    While I realize this film may not be for everyone since it can be pretty dark and not a very "fun" watch, it is a film I consider to be a masterpiece. It is socially relevant and raises questions about our world without directly answering them because there are no easy answers. It is this ambiguity and uncertainty that also carries over to the protagonist of the film and makes the film interesting. It is beautifully directed and shot. The performance by Joaquin Phoenix is phenomenal and could easily earn him an Oscar. The 4K blu ray transfer is excellent as is the cinematography. The same goes for the audio/sound and the musical score. If you like good film-making or character studies, then this is a must-buy! The steelbook is just icing on the cake. Highly recommended.

    An empathetic and painful look at a supervillain.

    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    Todd Phillips' "Joker" is without a doubt one of the most effective films showcasing the origin of the iconic DC supervillain as it tends to set itself upon a real world in 1981 as a failed standup comedian named Arthur Fleck looks for companionship and care despite the world stepping down on him along with facing ridicule until he embraces the very persona the world will forever recognize. What makes "Joker" set itself apart from other comic book films is that it's more of a character study done in the manner of an independent film drawing influences from Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" & "The King of Comedy". But it also works as a reminder that anybody can become a persona like the "Joker" especially when society in general can turn their back on an individual.

    Iconic Performance

    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    Please note: 5 Stars for the film and the performance 4 stars for the home video release (details below) JOKER is one of the rare films that lives up to the hype. Joaquin Phoenix's performance is mesmerizing. At first, you can't help but sympathize with his plight. But eventually he crosses a line where empathy cannot continue. His actions become all the more shocking the more deeply he descends into madness. Unsettling and brilliant. Incredible direction by Todd Phillips, masterful cinematography, a gorgeous, haunting score. Why only 4 stars? Because Warner Bros did not include Todd Phillips' audio commentary on the 4K disc or the Blu-ray. It's only available on iTunes, meaning you would have to purchase it again just to get that special feature. For the premium price we pay for 4K discs, all special features should be included. That being said, JOKER is a 5 star masterpiece, with one of the most iconic performances ever captured on film. Go see it.

    Wonderful movie with incredible quality

    Posted .

    The 4K bluray is drop dead gorgeous. This uses the Ari Alexa 65 (6.5K) with a 4K native digital intermediate. Add to that you get Dolby Atmos, in so many words of exclamation this is the perfect ULTRA HD EXPERIENCE. Oh yeah did I mention that the movie is great??!! Who would have thought that the director of The Hangover and Old School would knock this nightmarish drama out of the park! Those of you that are foolish enough to go into this thinking it is some superhero action adventure are going to be seriously let down. You cannot go into this movie with arms crossed and mind closed expecting this to be just super neat experience. You must EXPERIENCE this emotional roller coaster to its crescendo ending. This is not only a great acting nod, but it also is a very personal journey. After seeing this in the theater I can say with a complete certainty that this is one that you can duplicate at home with the right set-up. The music by Hilder Guðnadóttir is just a masterpiece and this was after I was completely blown away with her work on Chernobyl. The 4K is is so detailed that I put it with the elite like Dunkirk, The Revenant, 2001, The Shining. Yes I mean that, it is that good. So sprint to the store and buy this for all you UHD fans that know what quality is all about.

    Good Steelbook for a spectacular film

    The film pulls you into it’s world right from the start and doesn’t let you go until the credits roll. Joaquin Phoenix delivers an amazing performance from the moment he hits the screen and portrays Arthur masterfully, so much so that by the end you really are rooting for Joker. Although the film is a much more physiological thriller than comic book movie it does the Joker character justice by letting us see, for perhaps the first time, how someone could transform into a criminal super villain. I loved the film (as you probably already guessed) and as far as the picture and audio quality of the 4K Blu-ray are concerned, it’s top tier for sure. You won’t regret picking this up.

    One of the best films of 2019!

    Without a doubt one of the top three films of 2019, and a true must see! Even had this had nothing whatsoever to do with DC or the "Joker" or anything like that, it still would have been a massive achievement, but the fact that a film of this depth managed to do so while in Gotham City and referencing the long history of the comics is truly impressive. I cannot say anything about the film itself that has not already been said, but it's a true work of art. Sadly, the steelbook is far from great. I'm a massive steelbook collector, and I will always buy a steelbook when available, and I thank Best Buy for going above and beyond in their steelbook selections, but this one is average at best. The cover is bland and truly annoying with the white light, and the back is a huge miss with all of the text. A mediocre steelbook case for a work of art movie. I am still giving it five stars as the movie itself is worth that rating and a must own, and given that this steelbook is at least available, then this is the version to get.

    I was a little skeptical going into this movie, especially because many of the reviews focus on how violent it is. But after watching it, I came away very pleasantly surprised. It didn’t seem nearly as violent as I pictured and instead was a brilliant movie that shines a light on both mental illness and how society responds to people with mental illness can contribute to horrible consequences. The acting was great, the story was well thought out, and I highly recommend it.
