Heath Ledger

I'm intrigued by this pick obviously has the grin of the joker but due to his teeney bopper movie roles in the past and romantics I don't know if he can really play a psychotic criminal mastermind. Sorry if this was a repost I didnt see it on the first three pages so figured it was good.

Hmmm...from Liam Neeson to Heath Ledger.

A significant fall-off in villainous talent, methinks.

No body, but NO BODY is going to top Jack Nicholson as the joker. He was perfect for the role.

Give the part to Matt Damon. He has the smile. We can say the Joker hails from Boston.

Batman: The laugh track ends now, Joker.

Joker: I'm going to take over the world! How do you like 'dem apples!

As long as they don't get Affleck to play Spock, that doesn't seem all that bad.

And as long as we get Star Trek that isn't all touchy-feely-save-the-whales lame, I've got no problem with it. Zero-gee splattered Klingon blood and shit blowing up in space works for me.

A bit off topic, but...

Just took my boys to see "Monster House". Damned good movie. I think I enjoyed it as much as they did. There were quite a few scares. Just about perfect for my 8 and 9 year old. It might be a little much for younger children, though.

It's rated PG, not G... and they earned it.

Star Trek NEEDS to be redone. About 8 out of 10 of them sucked.Star Trek TMP: Sucked. Nice visuals. Horrid acting.
Star Trek II: Awesome. Great battle scenes. Ricardo rocked as Khan. Kirstie rocked as Saavik.
Star Trek III: Some good moments, but overall... kinda sucked. New Saavik definitely does NOT rock. Kirk's kid is a puss.
Star Trek IV: Lame premise, but also had it's moments.
Star Trek V: Ghastly.
Star Trek VI: Very good. Great battle scenes. Funky-colored floating blood.
Star Trek Generations: Had its moments. Wasn't bad overall. Best of the odd numbers.
Star Trek First Contact: Best of the bunch, barely beating out II. Data lubes up the Borg queen.
Star Trek Insurrection: Wretched. I actually hated this worse than V.
Star Trek Nemesis: Basically Star Trek II redeux, with Romulans instead of genetic freaks. Was okay, sort of.

Yeah, when it comes to Star Trek, I'm about as geeked out as you can get without going to conventions.

Nemesis was okay, but you have to admit, the parallels between it and II come early and often - personal vendetta against the captain, sacrifice of the Spock-type character, but a cheesy way back to life for him just in case there's enough interest for a sequel.

And the dunebuggies? C'mon, that was just retarded. I don't need Tango & Cash moments in my Star Trek. :grr:

That's kind of what I liked about it. Repetition in Star Trek is the equivalent of the Chiefs and 13-3; you know it's going to happen, you know it's going to eventually suck, but you watch anyway.

Although the dune buggies did suck.

Doesn't stop Connery or Eastwood. Harrison Ford isn't much younger than that, and he's doing another Indiana Jones movie. Same with Stallone doing a new Rocky and a new Rambo.

70 as a multi-millionaire with personal trainers and the best of everything is a bit different than 70 for the rest of us.

Well, as interesting as that would be, I guess they're going for a Joker not quite as wild and crazy as Jack. He's had his turn, and he nailed it.

I was just thinking, how Jack, would be too old, Ledger (compared to Bale) seems too young. They'll need good makeup. I guess that goes without saying when it comes to Joker though.

After Batman Begins, I have faith that they won't completely screw it up, given that Christopher Nolan is back directing the sequel and I assume the cast overall will be loaded again. As long as Gary Oldman is in the movie, I'll be happy.

My two favorite actors are Oldman and Morgan Freeman. If you have both of them in the same movie, it would take a lot of effort for it to suck.

From what I've heard - he plays a completely different type of character in "Lords of Dogtown" (I personally haven't seen - in the Netflix cue - it yet but have been told it's good) and is great.

I was really impressed with him in "Brokeback" - even if I thought the movie itself was kinda lame.

So - I'm really curious to see how he does. I'm kinda glad that they went for the WTF casting rather than an obvious choice.

When people compare Ledger's performance to Nicholson's......wait, there is no comparison. One is daring, innovative, and spectacular, and the other one is a bad joke.

Nicholson was that bad. All of the villians in the first run of Batman movies would of been more convincing and entertaining if they were played by sock puppets. The only one worse than Nicholson was Ahnold. If you envision the Joker as some gay little twink, then yeah, Nicholson nailed it.

Difference of opinions. Jack will always be the joker in my mind
