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

I like both Nicholson and Ledger take on the character, but I can't stop thinking what Pacino could have done in his prime days. The guy just strikes me as the early 40's Joker. His eyes, his smile, the hair and the thin face are exactly how I envision an ideal Joker.
Shame he didn't got to portray him in the big screen.

Kinda off topic but googling pictures I was reminded how many lame portrayals of the Joker exist both in comics and in films or in cosplay costumes. Like, I don't get this obsession with people dressing up like Joker and making him look ridiculous, not scary at all and yes in many cases like a cross dresser-transgender wannabe.

An example here but you get the idea.

And yes I hate the Arkham games look also. I just prefer his first appearance where he was a badass gangster type of mastermind, capable of a dirty physical fight with the Batman, over the exaggerated cartoonish depictions being scrawny and all that. Ugh, not to mention the ugly deformed depictions like Morrison's leatherface look.
