While the Dark Knight was overrated (although still worthwhile) there is no question Ledger’s Joker was ten times better than Nicholson’s. Jack can hardly even claim to be acting; he just did a masked version of the Jack Nicholson (TM) character he’s been doing for decades.
I agree that Dark Knight shouldn’t be up for best picture but are you sure you watched it? Heath’s Joker maybe twice in the whole thing across as depressed and pathetic, and he was faking both times. If anything he was overenthusiastic about everything he did and completely egocentric. Any time he broke something he laughed about it. If anything this Joker completely lacking any sense of how serious what he was doing was.
It’s possible to think this wasn’t the best movie of all time without acting like a prick.
Yes, the Joker is a dark, sociopath; however, he always masked it with his goofy/aloof attitude. The evil, gritty Joker came out once in a while in order to really lay on the seriousness of what he was doing, but it wasn’t always there. That has been the Joker since the beginning, back in the comics and Adam West shows. So this Dark Night version of Joker, I think, is inaccurate; he just seemed depressed and pathetic for the majority of the time (Maybe that’s why he killed himself after the movie, oh wait, didn’t one of the Olsen twins kill him or something?). The scene in the police interrogation was really good I thought. Anyway, this is gay, I’m done.
your a straight up terd.
i’ve said my “piece”? peace
I just finished watching Dark Knight for the 1st time about an hour ago … eh … it was pretty good, I don’t know what all the hype was about. Bale is a terrible Batman, a good Bruce Wayne though. Leger was decent at best, a bit annoying; Nicholson was better.
Nicholson was better? It is a quantifiable FACT that Nicholson’s Joker sucks donkey dick.
You are kidding right? Nicholson was slapstick and goofy, like the Joker from the TV show. Ledger showed us what a psycho-sociopath looked like. This was “The Darknight” not Batman and Robin, an entirely darker more gruesome batman series.
Don’t get me wrong I love Jackie Boy as an Actor, he forever will be “Here’s Johnny” from the shining and the Commander from A few Good Men, and he played a damn good Joker, but he did not capture the shere psychosis of the Joker, or his dark humor at all.
you have a tv and dvd player stuck up your ass
I believe “piece” is correct, “peace” does not make sense.
How could I see the TV then shmuck?
You were obviously watching it with your head up your own ass.
Oh no, cause no one’s ever used an artistic license ever in the history of man.
We already did the half moose, half wolf somewhere along the way I’m sure; catch up, do something original. Try something like crossing Alfred E. Newman with Buckwheat. Oh wait, you did that already and we helped him become president. Good one. We really don’t care what the majority of fans think about our movies. We nominate who we want. We had an idea similar to the two ships rigged with explosives. Except we were going to trap a bunch of movie goers in a theatre and force them to pick between “Snakes on a Plane” or “The Horse Whisperer”.

We thought the only reason Brendan was still working was because of your intervention. I guess you need to take this up with your bro down below. Obviously this is his doing.
Glad to see you can appreciate a good flick. Perhaps I’ll reconsider believing in you now. But man, you gotta do something to make it up to Heath first. Pull some strings and make sure he doesn’t lose to Downey, Hoffman, or Brolin for Best Supporting, and then we can talk.
