Wow, my facebook status updates is getting bombarded by people who think Ledger deserves an Oscar for his performance.

Sure, he did a good job as a dark, broody Joker, but I keep thinking, thats not what the Joker is supposed to be. He's supposed to be a happy-go-lucky guy. You want an evil Joker, see Hamill's joker. That guy could dance and laugh while he did these really twisted things.

You know, thats why they call him... the Joker.

As an aside, I would also really have liked to see some detective work from Bats. The Harvey Dent story really dragged IMO, I would've preferred to see Bats vs Joker in a detective vs serial killer twist-within-a-twist chase around Gotham.

What'd ya guys think of the movie?

Wow. You saw a different movie than the one I did. I saw a brilliant movie with a darkly comic Joker, a tragic fall by DA Harvey Dent and a grim battle of wills between Batman and the Joker, with the fate of Gotham City as the stakes.

The Dark Knight will go down as a classic.

P.S. A completely homicidal Joker has long since been established in the comics. At the very least since the Killing Joke one-shot.

Haven't read a comic since the '70s?
