I'm not that surprised. Ever since the trailer I thought this was going to be a great movie.

Okay, I’m a DC fan and sincerely hope this movie is good (last few have been great but god we still need it), but these film festival people are often pretentious twats. Idk food for thought

Edit: I know I’m being that guy who’s “Marvel good early reviews, dope! DC good early reviews, I’ll wait and see”, but I’ve been hurt too many times before. Justice League was supposed to be the renaissance, and look how that turned out

Firstly "pretentious twats" and "food for thought" don't go together unless the one saying food for thought is the pretentious twat

Second, nobody was saying justice league was the renaissance, a quick Google search, and you can see people were saying it's a bumpy fun ride, which is true, if it came out same time as avengers they'd easily be comparable

@mrnoital: Nah I meant people were saying it’d be a renaissance before it came out. Personally I thought Justice League was pretty disappointing, and I thought that was the general consensus, but it could just be me

Well that's encouraging. I had/have really low expectations for this film. I would love to be completely wrong, especially since Joker is my favorite villain.

Finally, some goddamn recognition for a great CBM. Even TDK didn't get a best picture nod at the Oscars.

Counting on it to finally be a CBM that can rival or even beat TDK.

@wolverinebatmanftw: Because at the time people didn’t want to nominee a CBM. TDK was easily worth a nomination compared to “the reader or Benjamin button” tdk is vastly superior objectively and was critical acclaimed.

But another cbm was nominated in a weak year and we know why... for example mission impossible fallout was worth nomination but since it was an action movie it was skipped.

Fallout holds an 87 metacritic and a 97% rotten tomatoes. So it’s critical acclaimed but it didn’t get a nod cause action , joker will have Make Up , best actor and that’s it for the Noms or he will not even be nominated.

I’ll wait and see.

I hope it does well, I personally can't wait to see it. I hope we get more villian movies for the likes of Lex and Doom.

@tomkatie: it was definitely disappointing, especially how Whedon claimed he was finishing snyder's vision and trying to do it in his style, and straight up lied

@detectivesomerset__:

Not sure if I agree that Fallout should've been nominated (some parts weren't great IMO) but I see your overall point.

And don't forget, Fury Road was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director.

So who knows?

@wolverinebatmanftw: fury road is a masterpiece of filmmaking and tecnical aspects. It’s not s movie for everyone , some people rate a 5/10 “overrated trash no charachters” and some a 10/10.

6 oscars and 90 metacritics proves otherwise , it’s a movie that can’t be replicated in his success , none saw fury road coming and being that good and that’s why it was nominated. Critical acclaimed and a fresh breath of air for action movies

The pacing and dynamic and action was prob the best of the 10s , they had no way to not nominate it. It was come in the same year of the revenant even if film snobs will argue for revenant which has a simple premise . Both are great but fury road deserved best picture.

Fallout agreed but it’s clealry a great movie overall as a standalone. Film editing , sound mixing even best picture should have been nominated , or was far better and more acclaimed than Vice (deserves acting nomination and editing but not best picture) and black panther.

At this point, I think a Best Picture Nomination is almost inevitable. Whether it'll win or not is a whole different question, and one we definitely have to wait longer to see, but as of now, I'd be surprised if it wasn't nominated.

I don't trust much in these awards - you know, they give horses medals just because they have large behinds.

That being said, I am a Marvel fan and I hope this flick does good.

Come to think of it, playing "Joker" seem to be in high demand when you're big at Hollywood. That's, I think, the mark of a great character.
