So i watched joker for the first time since october. Its still a really good movie, got the same uncomfortable feeling as the first time i watched it, thanks to great acting by Joaquin Phoenix and a hauntingly beautiful score by Hildur gudnadóttir. But i don't think it would be as good as it was without Phoenix Oscar winning performence.
Todd Phillips did a great job, but would love to see what Scorsese had been able to do with this film considering the similarity with taxi driver and King of comedy.
Original score: 4,5
New score: 4

American History X
Wow! This was hard to get through.
So powerful and a lot of unpleasant scenes, and the way this movie is set up with black and White flashbacks of Dereks (Edward Norton) early life narrated by his younger brother Danny (Edward Furlong) is so brilliant and makes the movie even more unpleasant to watch.
Don't get me wrong, its still a really great movie, but just not something that i could watch every day.
