The Dark Knight was one of the most overhyped movies last year. Really didnt understand what was so special about the Joker. Oooh, he's a psychopath.

Jack Napier > this joker

Well you obviously care since you took the time out to post on here. Plus many people care about the Oscars, it's the freaking Oscars for Christ sake. And I am sure more people care about Ledger than they care about you.

You have obviously never read a Batman comic book. Jack Napier was something Tim Burton came up with for his movie, he was entertaining but he wasn't The Joker.... he was just jack Nicholson in makeup. TDK Joker is the way the character should be.

I do know about the comic, however Im just stating that Jack Napier is a better Joker than some psycho.

That's your opinion but don't expect most to agree. For most people Jack Napier/Joker was just Nicholson in makeup playing himself rather than the Joker.

What a nasty, snarky title for an article. Lewis Beale should be ashamed.
