Default Re: Who is "YOUR" Joker?

I really don't like comparing Jack and Heath's performances to be honest. I think they did about as good a job as you can do in the films they appeared in and how their character was written. If you want to say that Heath literally 'inhabited' the character and that gives him the nod, ok. I just think because the roles were played differently, in two different interpretations of Batman, makes their performances very hard to measure.

If you want me to make a preference, I'll say Heath because I just like 'that' portrayal of the character, how it was written to be( and yes, he was masterful in the role in terms of acting). Jack's Joker was very much in line with the 89 Batman film.

I prefer Mark Hamill. Cesar Romero is not that bad either since the character itself supposes to be a bit campy.

Nice to see Mark Hamill's name being brought. His performances have defined the Joker character for me. Ledger's Joker redefined the character. Those two are top for me.

Jack did have more iconic moments as the Joker, but overall I liked Hamill and Ledger better.

nicholson, although all four of them brought something unique and commendable to the table. can't really say the same thing about the batman actors.

ledger in particular was ultra intense and memorable, but nicholson to me was far more nuanced and offered a lot more insight in to the character itself. he also had this kind of zen calm that i found totally fascinating because it could break in almost any direction... humorous or macabre and a thousand shades in between. ledger was more of the same mood applied over and over again.

romero was really funny with all the gleeful hooting and hollering and such...

Default Re: Who is "YOUR" Joker?

I lost my shit when I first played Batman Arkham Asylum and the Joker opened his mouth and Mark Hamill's voice came out. The man IS the Joker to me, when I read a comic with the Joker or think about something with the Joker it is that voice that I hear in my head, that rhythm, and that style.

Ledger was absolutely great. But he doesn't define the character for me.

Mark Hamill's Joker is the voice I will *always* think of.

Ledger's performance is far and away the superior of the lot. Nicholson's was alright, too.

Ledger played the perfect Joker. Overall, I always felt he was an overrated actor; everyone said he was the next Hollywood superstar in the making, but I didn't see it. Look at Brokeback Mountain for example - his performance was wicked atrocious. But what he did in Dark Knight was wonderfully amazing. You really can't even tell Joker is Ledger. You remove Ledger from Dark Knight, and you have a mediocre movie, at best.

Oh, going back to Brokeback Mountain - one of the two gay dudes would have been the purrrrrfict role for starface. Truly could have been a bona fide [boner] masterpiece [masturbate].

Add in that goofy yet menacing laugh he had or the theme song of his in the animated series.

I agree about Ledger, he was great but when I read the comics, I hear Hamill's voice.

Ledger was the best Joker and in my opinion the way the character should be portrayed. Jack did a good job but the character was too cartoonish and didn't have the semi realistic qualities of a real life villain when portrayed by Ledger. I prefer Ledger's performance and I prefer the newer movies.
