    Is it heart wrenching to watch Heath Ledger knowing that he is gone?

    That is what is keeping me away.

    I am worried that all the hype and all the idiots are way overexagerating Heaths performance of the Joker and all this post humounus Oscar talk for him already.

    I actauly love Arron Eckhart more (from his perforance in in the Company of Men where he stole the whole move as a slimy business man.

    He brought the part of the Joker to life...it is sad what happened to him, but he deserves to be honored for that role.

    He helps the movie, but without the entire cast, the movie would not be what it is.

    Watch it to the very end...it is the whole that is good, and to just see it as pieces would not do it justice.
     
  8. I personally think I'm going to like this series of the Batman movies cause this group of movies has already had the main character playing batman signed on for 3 movies at least.

    This series is based strongly off the "Dark Knight" comicbook line which is a Darker more evil side of batman and how he is upsesive over righting wrongs and all that jazz. The batman that's willing to kick arse and take names later, even willing to kill when he has to. AKA the Badazz Batman, unlike the Adam West "Holy Lame Acting Batman" or the other movies that were honestly underwrote. Out of the previous line of batman movies the ones with Michael Kaeton were the best by far, everyone after that just went down hill. Batman Begins brought back that same childhood love I had for the Dark Knight comic book where batman would bust someones face in and not think twice about hanging them from a building then letting them drop after he's got the info he wanted. The Dark batman is the good batman imo :p, of course I'm an evil little fooker like that :p.

    I'm not entirely sure I like this darker side of Batman. Overall the movie was good, but I liked the others better.

    Well Batman was supposed to be dark. Hes supposed to be able to kill these thugs and not think twice about it. I think the Dark Knight series was probably the best batman series in awhile.

    Im seeing the movie on Sunday!!

    Batman was originally dark and then went campy but then went dark again in the Tim Burton films but then went lighter and crappeir in the next two films but the Dark KNight I will see too but I think its a far stretch Heath Ledger is anywhere near as good as Jacks Joker.

    I liked Jack's joker, this guy was just disturbing and twisted, which is probably the way he's suppose to be.

    I just got back from the Dark Knight. Awesome movie, and imo Heath Ledger did a GREAT job. His joker was crazy as hell, made you laugh and was just psychotic. The way he was supposed to be. Even the second villian in the movie was awsome...

    Heath Ledger did a great job. Hes going to be hard to replace in a sequel if they do that.
     
  15. Only person I could think of that is a good enough actor that has someone the same looks and features as Heath is Orlando Bloom or however you spell his name, the guy from LoTR and Pirates of the Carabean. I after seeing Sweety Todd and based on a few of his other roles I think Johnny Depp could pull off a good joker as well.

    Johnny Depp ya maybe, but Orlando Bloome, hell no. Horrible actor imo. He wasnt that great in Lotr, just a pretty boy with pointy ears. And dont get me wrong im a huge fan of Lotr, but he couldnt pull off the joker ever.
