Default Re: am I the only one who DIDN'T think Nicholson nailed joker??

I think that most of the people who loved Nicholson's take on the Joker are seeing it through the prism of nostalgia. They saw the movie as a kid and it taints their judgement imo.
Now if you take a step back, you see that it really is just an amped up version of Romero's Joker. There is nothing sincere, special, rare or even really that interesting about it.
And I'm a huge Nicholson fan.
I'll say it again Jack Torrance was a much better Joker than Jack Napier.
