I watched Joker in the cinema, but I have always thought that the performance of Joaquin Phoenix was so stunning, that I would have no trouble watching it once again. So yes, I became very happy when I noticed that Joker is now on Netflix and I can stream it!
Of course, Joker cannot be streamed on Netflix everywhere. In fact, currently, there is only one nation in the world in which you can watch Joker on Netflix and that is in Japan.
Maybe you like Japanese movies and TV shows, or maybe you have no interest in Japan at all. But, if you want to watch Joker on Netflix, a Japanese IP address is needed. That in itself is, however, not enough. The reason is simple. Almost all VPN services are blocked by Netflix, meaning that you will not be able to stream the actual content of Japanese Netflix when you use them. Instead, you will only see the Netflix original content, available in all other countries of the world as well.
So, what can you do if you want to stream Joker on Netflix using a VPN not detected by Netflix?
The solution is actually quite simple and easy. For a long time, you could use ExpressVPN to access Japanese Netflix, but it doesn’t seem to work anymore. As a result, there are two VPN services between which you will have to choose, NordVPN and SurfsharkVPN. Here I will write a few words about both of them, and also include links to their websites.
Watch Joker on Netflix with NordVPN
NordVPN is a VPN giving you access to Netflix content in five countries. It has very good speeds and nice applications available to all the big platforms. They also have a 30-day money-back guarantee, in case you do not like the service.
Click the button to visit the NordVPN website and to get a solid discount. You can use one subscription on 6 devices at the same time. You can freely connect to all their servers (available in more than 50 countries). They have no bandwidth limitations at all.
Watch Joker on Netflix with SurfsharkVPN
SurfsharkVPN is the second option if you want to stream Joker on your favorite streaming service, that is, Netflix. This VPN gives access to Netflix content in approximately 10 countries (including Japan), and it comes with a 30-day refund policy. Just like NordVPN, they have apps for Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, FireTV, Android TV, gaming consoles, and more.
SurfsharkVPN is a bit cheaper than NordVPN.
Click the button to visit the SurfsharkVPN website. As you visit the website, make sure to check the price of the 2-year plan, as it is quite amazing. They do not have any bandwidth limitations, and they have servers in more than 60 countries. Besides this, you can use one subscription on more than 10 devices at the same time.
That’s it. Those are the short instructions explaining how you can watch Joker on Netflix. The movie might get to Netflix in even more countries with time. If you know of other countries in which you can stream Joker on Netflix, please write a comment and let me know about it.
What do the critics say?
I am quite fed up with the critics ratings online. Because, whenever I like something, they don’t. And when the critics enjoy a movie, I fall asleep (did anyone say La La Land?!). Because, if you visit Rotten Tomatoes, you will see that the critics score of the movie is only 66%. I simply don’t get it. However, the general viewer like me (common audience) has given the movie an 88% score. That is more like the reality, not the crappy critics score.
But, go ahead and watch Joker yourself, and make up your own mind.
I guess we all think of Joaquin Phoenix when we speak of the movie Joker. But, I would also like to tell you that Robert De Niro is doing a great job in the movie. He doesn’t have the biggest role, but whenever he is in there, he is doing it in a fantastic way.
Go ahead and stream the movie on Japanese Netflix right away.
