I was like OH. MY. GOSH!
THAT is batman

well I thought that exact thing when I saw the return of joker
THAT is joker

and at no time watching nicholson did I feel that, he wasn't menacing, he wasn't scary and I was a kid at the time for petes sake therefore (for me) he wasn't joker.
I thought the scene where Joker fried the guy with the joy buzzer was pretty intense. And watching him just laugh it off made him seem insane.

Everyone brings joy to this forum. Some by coming in. Some by going out...
