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

I think there's such a thing as taking a parallel or a sense of poetic irony one step too far.

For a lot of fans, having The Joker be the killer of the Waynes was that step too far. I don't particularly mind it for that movie, but I don't think it's the best interpretation of the mythos. There's a reason that never caught on in any other version of the story. It's unnecessary.
