This had the best interpretation of The Joker I've ever seen, I think. It's good to see a dirty, grimy, deeply mentally unhinged Joker. I also liked how they didn't explain him at all; he was really just there one day.
Also, I got claw marks in my arm from the girl next to me at the pencil part. No fun.

While I liked the new Joker, I wouldn't say it's that much different from the current comic book version. Though it is much better than Jack's version, how impossible that may seem. My favorite part of the film though was Two-face, I want to see more of him.

He did make it disappear, though.

Agreed. Heath Ledger and the script made The Joker shine, but I've always found Two-Face to be the more compelling villain. He deserves a shot a being Batman's number one foe on the screen. Unlike every other member of the rogue's gallery save Catwoman, Batman and Bruce Wayne have an emotional attachment for Two-Face. I loved how the animated series had Batman waking in a cold sweat over how he couldn't save Harvey.

I loved how they made Two-face look in the new film. I would love if the next film detailed his downward spiral into a psychotic maniac. Also him getting some revenge on a certain Clown Prince of Crime would be lovely.

Except for the fact that Heath Ledger is dead.

Then again, it is a Batman movie. It's easy to swap people in and out of roles. I think Gary Oldman should be Bruce Wayne.

Heath may be dead, but after seeing the movie I believe that any actor that had a similar build to him could feel in his role. Also, the fact that he is wearing heavy clown makeup over his scarred face for about 95% of the movie does help.

It's becoming sadly evident that the next movie just won't be as good as The Dark Knight.

I wasn't crazy about the movie. Everyone I know acts like it's the second coming of Jesus, but Heath wasn't all that super (good, but not Oscar good) and the rest of the cast didn't really impress me at all (I still don't like Bale).

I'm sure I wouldn't have been so underwhelmed if people didn't make such a big fuss over it. Oh well.

There's no fucking way the second coming of Jesus will be half as good The Dark Knight. I'd wager God himself is watching that shit on IMAX right now saying, "Note to self: When creating next universe, cast Heath Ledger as Jesus; replace walking on water with disappearing pencil."

Did anyone realize that for a guy about chaos and anarchy, Joker was really good at long term and complex planning?

I liked how they kept connecting the Joker to punk rock, and it turns out he just had a boner about anarchy.


That's not all there is to punk rock.

I went to see it again and it just didn't hold up as well the second time.

Also, the other SWAT officer sitting shotgun in the van holding "Batman" was really really really really annoying.
