    Although I disagree with your prediction about Nolan/Ledger's Joker being boring (Hannibal Lecter is never boring), you've reminded me... Ledger looks almost exactly like the Joker as drawn by Frank Miller in DKR.

    YEP, you are the only one. The Joker isn't like that. The things he does are only funny to him. You should HATE him in this next film. Jack is the man, but not the Joker.

    Hey b****boy , how bouts you go read some comics other than The Dark Knight Returns and the '89 movie adaptation and then you might have a clue of what you're talkin about. Everybody says Jack was Great as the the Joker because he's JACK. Not because they have any core knowledge of who the Joker is outside of Cseasar Romero and Jack Nicholson. All we so called haters are just Batman fans whos knowledge of these charcaters predates the '89 movie. And for the record Mark Hamill's cartoon Joker . . . kicked Jack's @$$! Hell Jim Carrey's Riddler was a better Joker than Jack's.

    Nicholson still makes it.

    That's what you say. I say he's a great actor and very close to the Joker's personality himself.

    There are different incarnations of Joker as there are different versions of every character. Nolan's doing something different? Great. That means the previous or differenmt ones are wrong or any more wrong because of this? Naw.

    Too good Mr. Hammill has a good voice, because his acting abilities suck big time. And may I assume you thought Jim's Riddler was good because he's JIM?

    Not at all! I didn't like Carrey's Riddler because it was too Joker. To me Riddler would be better handled if he were more like Keyser So(sp?) . . . Kevin Spacey's character in 'The Usual Suspects'. Carrey's Riddler had more of the Joker's personality than Jack's Joker did.

    Joker sending riddles to the police, becoming a bussiness man and being in love with Bruce Wayne. That's the ****.

    I like to see Kevin Spacey's Seven character development into The Riddler. I think that would suit Nolan's version of Riddler.

    Actually, the spelling is "Hannibal Lecter".

    But all things aside, there's no way Hannibal Lecter is boring. If the Joker of THE DARK KNIGHT has anywhere near the same amount of cinematic power and presence, I'll be a very happy man.

    He corrects someone's way of spelling the name and spells it wrong as well, how ironic.

    I'll set the record straight. Tim Burton based his original Batman film off of the Batman comics of the 40s and then current, 80s. The Joker was just a crazy loon. He laughed at everything and only killed people the kooky conventional ways, shock buzzer, etc, only silly ways(minus The Dark Knight Returns). And that is how Jack Nicholson was suppose to play the role, and for what he did and had to work with, it was amazing. He came off great, even stupendous. The same goes for Burton's Batman killing others. During the period Burton chose to use, Batman was a recluse who only came out at night and wait for it.....killed villains. Batman Begins was based more so on the current Batman that does not kill and who's villainous opposite, The Joker, is a psycho, he murders anyone who gets in his way, any way he feels like it. He's a dark character on the inside. Sure, he spits one liners and laughs at them, but in a grim way. And his look has gone from a normal clown to more evilly broadening. Dark circles around his eyes. Dark green hair, and blood red lips. That in terms, is the Joker I expect to see Ledger pull off under Chris Nolan's direction.

    ^Quite right, Mr. Socko. Nicholson's Joker is certainly faithful to the comics, just different eras. The "darker" Joker really only started gaining steam around BATMAN '89's making, not before.

    Leave it to SHHers to determine that in order to enjoy one performance you must hate another (who else here recalls all the Keaton-Hate when Bale was cast?). The forumers here are littler boys who get all nervous when somebody suggests Actor X could play/might play/did play Role X better than Nolan's/Burton's choice. Grow up.

    The real truth is that Jack was great. He, for all intents and purposes, nailed the Joker of the Batman comics from that era. The Joker of modern comics is a little bit different, but since those comics didn't exist 20 years ago, Jack can hardly be blamed for not portraying that Joker.

    Now here's a secret tip that always confuses the little boys: you don't have to hate Jack in order to like Ledger, or vice-versa. Your brain (hint: you can find it in your head) has the capacity to like more than one thing at the same time.

    I remember the comics of that era. Still have em. Refer to them often when considering Jack's Joker performance. That Joker may have been based off the 50's and 60's Joker but that ain't the Joker I had come to appreciate before that movie came out. I remember the Joker from that day being more of a genius than Jack portrayed. After watching '89 Batman for the first time I felt the Joker in that movie was too tame.

    . . . and that's all you remember? I'm talking personality not plot details. btw he sent those riddles to Bruce Wayne . . . not the police. What about that extreme personality display? What about him nonchalantly showing up in Two-Faces hideout as if he belonged there? Very Joker to me.
