Probably should wait until hype dies down.

Joker wasn't as good as TDK though imo.

I prefer personally but I can understand TDK being a better film. Not the acting in Joker is superior to TDK.

I like Ledger's performance slightly more than Phoenix's but Joker is overall better movie IMO.

The Dark Knight. They're very close, but I think The Dark Knight is just slightly better.

I prefer Joker, but both of them are masterpieces and I can see why one would prefer TDK.

The Dark Knight. If JOKER was missing just one element for me, it was Batman and the Joker facing off with one another. I would absolutely love to see this version of the character come into conflict with Batman

I like Joker more because I enjoyed the simplicity of the plot and I found it more emotionally impactful. It's the only film to have ever made me feel truly uncomfortable. Having said that, in terms of objective film criticism, I don't think it's better. It's likely on the same level, but not better.

I'll go with JOKER, I'm impressed with it more since it's a stand alone and handles very real life issues, mixing it with one of the greatest comic book characters of all time. TDK had help from a trilogy setting imo.

Still yet to see Joker. However, TDK is just a masterful classic at this point. Good to see some conflicting opinions between these two films. I'll have high expectations seeing Joker.

TDK. I also think Ledger is still the best Joker even though Phoenix gave a better performance if that makes sense.

Also this.

For me, TDK stands out as a more complete film. The supporting cast is stronger and more fleshed out, the villain is more memorable and Ledger gives us a better performance, Hans Zimmer score and The Dark Knight just gets better and better with every passing year, by far one of the greatest movie of all time, we need time to know if Joker will hold up.

So I finally saw Joker. Must say I was impressed. The only thing that separates the two films for top spot, in my opinion, is genre preference.

The Dark Knight takes it for me.

Those are different movies. I prefer Joker, but TDK has more intensity and action, while Joker has more drama and tragedy tone. Matter of taste but both are 10/10
