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

the return of the joker for me is the quintessential joker. his voice is muted and down played but there is a menace about it

there is a classic scene where he tells the gang to do a job and the fat guy (whose name escapes me) challenges him, joker doesn't get angry or loses his temper but you can 'FEEL' the menace brewing, THAT for me is joker the theatrics are in the scams he pulls (i.e. smiles on fishes faces) not in the character of joker himself.

alan moore's killing joke is perfect
the dark night return's future joker is perfect
mark hamill's joker is perfect
JN joker is nicholson given a very good peformance of nicholson being crazy but it wasn't joker or at least he wasn't the joker 'I' wanted to see.
