Hahaha! Yes! Bud and Lou!  Roll Eyes I adore them. Harley and her 'Babies'. Cheesy I agree, most of the time she can be a complete ditz, but she has a seriously evil streak in her! At one point in 'The Joker' (by Brian Azzarello), Harley and Joker are in a bar when they take a guy backstage of the stripping stage. Harley then skins the guy alive and they push him out onto the stage. Of course, Joker slaps a dollar bill on the man's skinless butt. Roll Eyes Those two!  Roll Eyes

LMAO!!!! You're love sick for Joker!!!!! *snickers*
Damn right I am! But strangely, it's not for Ledger!Joker. It's for the Comic book one (specifically The Killing Joke and and the one from Jeph Loeb's works.) And also the Animated Series one. Hahaha! Movie Joker was amazing and I love him too, don't get me wrong, but I really love it when The Joker is overly dramatic, hilarious, and witty. Such as in the Animated Series... or in The Killing Joke. His little 'Loo-oooo-oony' song makes me just about choke every time I read it.

Oh, and Chinjo Petite, c'mon, join the discussion! Who are your favorite characters?  Grin

He didn't scare me, but I was definitely intimidated. He was absolutely insane! Like some wild, rabies infested dog. I went to see the movie on opening night and everyone in the theater was a bit shocked by him. One moment stands out in my mind. It's when he is filming the fake Batman and is all: "Then why do you dress up like him! HooHOOO! Look at me, Brian."The whole audience was laughing... until he said the second "LOOK AT ME!" in that extremely frightening gruff voice. The theater went dead silent.

You know a movie is great when it can get that sort of reaction from the audience.

I'd have to say that overall, Animated/Mark Hamil Joker is my favorite - though Ledger!Joker is a close second. Part of this though has to do with the fact that I grew up on Hamil!Joker so all over Jokers are measured against him.

On a related note, did anyone else watch the Adam West Batman when they were young? With Ceaser Romano as the Joker and all the kitsch one could stomach?

Also, has anyone checked out the new series Batman: The Brave and the Bold? It's style is a throw back to the "Silver age" look but is quite funny. There is one episode that the Joker appears in (it's a two parter so you need both to get it, he's in the second half): Game Over Owlman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJJMp6HgQCg&feature=channel_page. The voicing could be better but I would that Joker ep to be hysterical. Kinda fifties slapstick but still, worth the 40 minutes it take to watch both eps.  Cheesy

I think I'm the same. No other Joker has ever been quite as good (in my opinion) as Hamil. I do also like the newer, darker, comic!Joker though.

They were repeated not that long ago on the tv and I think they might be ever cheesier than I remembered, who knew it was possible!

Did anyone else (possibly UK only, I'm not sure) catch the episode of QI that discussed Burt Wards 'unique' way of giving out autographs?

I've seen Batman: The Brave and the Bold a few times. Man, I was extremely cheesy, and Joker definitely looks like his old comic book self. Put honestly, he looks so nonthreatening that it is almost too ridiculous to watch.

Not to mention I think of this every time I see that Joker design:::

My favorite characters have to be the Bat himself and then of course Joker and Harley. I love seeing them be interpreted and reinterpreted...though I don't always love the interpretations its an interesting process to watch over the years. I watched the original cartoons when I was a kid and then started reading the original comics...now it seems I always have Dark Knight on loop  Tongue You ladies are intimidating with your knowledge but I love reading your insights..I'm researching a lot of the films and comics you've mentioned  Smiley

I suggest you read Alan Moore's 'The Killing Joke', if you haven't read it yet. It is by far my most favorite Joker story ever. I also enjoy The Joker portrayal in 'The Long Halloween' and 'Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth'. In the latter, Joker sneaks up on Batman and gooses his behind. *swoon!*  Wink
