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

I don't think Nicholson's 'Joker' is anything more than Nicholson doing his no-effort usual shtick. He basically walked through the part and collected a check. There were a mere handful of scenes that actually worked for me... the rest ... well....

And, as much as I like the animated Batman series. That Joker was OK. Not the ultimate Joker. I believe they toned it down a bit for theyounger viewers.

The Joker I want to see is actually psychotic killer and not so much a 'funnyman'. In fact, I would be happy if he made no jokes at all. I've never seen the character as a comedian. I've always thought of the Joker as a wildcard in that you never know from moment to moment what he's going to do.
