Its been awhile since i've been on here, but i'm finally back...i got the chance to check out the new Dark Knight film and its nothing short of a 10...a classic for sure. I left the film with my friends asking the question...who was the better joker...jack nicholson or Heath Ledger????....I'm pretty sure this question has already been asked but i thought i would throw it out there...any old hoot....i myself think they were both great for their movies , both had their moments and both have some memorable lines...but if i had to pick...this newer one is much more darker, not right in the head yet makes perfect sense at the same time (if that makes any sense lol)
Mannn this has been a great year for movies....so far :D
PS...i want to save the the spill crew the trouble of reviewing Disaster movie(when its released that is)...and take a wild guess and say its gonna be some old Bulls#@$...wait..why guess....I KNOW.....lol
i liked both of them. for me, it's hard to pick which one is best. each actor did what they had to do to make the character stand out. nicholson's joker was funny and deranged what you might think a joker would be, ledger's joker was brilliant, merciless, mysterious and very insane complete opposite of what i think a joker would be. my choice is jack nicholson's.
I don't think either one was better than the other. They both did a great job being joker. But Christopher Nolan's and Tim Burton made completely two different movies with two different themes. Neither Joker would look right if the roles were reverse.
Heath Ledger Joker wouldn't look right at the Joker Parade throwing fake money at Gotham citizens dancing to Prince in the background in Batman (1989) just like Jack Nicholson Joker wouldn't look right showing up at the Crime Boss Meeting dancing to Prince in the background in The Dark Knight. (even though I would love to see that).
I did like the Heath Ledger Joker I was a little disppointed that he didn't have any gags like an acid spitting flower or the shocking hand buzzer. That is one thing I love about the Joker was the gags like the exploding cigar or the toy gun with Bang flag. Heath Ledger had none of that. All he had was knives and a potato peeler.
