i see the same irony in this post.
Heath Ledger did alright as a token psycho. But, that's just it. He could have been ANY psycho. He wasn't the Joker. Why? Did he pull outrageously over-the-top scams whilst laughing maniacally? Nearly, but no. Jack Nicholson was the Joker. Cesar Romero was the Joker, even Mark Hamill was the Joker,but for my money, Jack Nicholson was THE Joker. funny that people will talk smack like "jack was cartoony". of course its funny because these characters are based on cartoons. so what the point there trying to make is beyond me. cartoonish characters should be played cartoonish by actors, thats how i look at it. plus its WAY more fun to watch then some douche licking his lips while giving longwinded monologues about....well i dont know what. i never "got" what ledger was trying to say. somethin about chaos and upsetting order? uh huh. jack did all this without giving stupid speeches. he was a man of action not words. nolans batmans are way too wordy for me.
