I imagine they would still be on the set together.

Heath Ledger is fierce.

Look up the scene where Joker crashes the party. When he fires his shotgun, notice Alfred next to the joker about make a move to say something, but hesitates. Why? Refer to the post
User avatar #82 - doombunni (07/28/2012) [-]
I can see why he got so scared. Heath Ledger played the part so well, it's as if he really was an insane killer. He was the most convincing villain I had ever seen
#83 to #82 - anon (07/28/2012) [-]
Agreed. He was never the sort of scary where you jumped out of your seat, but he gave you the uneasy feeling of being watched by something with no sense of right and wrong. It was almost as if he was subhuman.
User avatar #85 to #83 - doombunni (07/28/2012) [-]
It was almost like he embodied the evil and insanity found in murderers and serial killers. It seriously freaked me out

Heath Ledger played The Joker's part so 			*******		 well. I was literally downright amazed. I almost got teary-eyed when I found out that he died. His performance as The Joker was that 			*******		 great.

Heath Ledger done an amazing job as the Joker, I cannot think of a single way he could have improved. He nailed that role -nae, made sweet, sweet love to that role. He will be missed.

User avatar #103 to #94 - luismamontes (07/28/2012) [-]
I think I have never been so impressed by a perfomance. It wasn't his time to go, but rather we were not ready for such awesome acting. Some day...
User avatar #104 to #94 - scrappyman (07/28/2012) [-]
i was equally impressed but the only thing i missed was he never did a full on joker laugh he started to every once in a while but never put some heart behind it
User avatar #63 - Borunks (07/28/2012) [-]
i feel kinda bad for anyone who might play joker in the future
User avatar #58 - stafflessmoses (07/28/2012) [-]
I should probably watch the Dark Knight.
User avatar #59 to #58 - wilfredfanforever (07/28/2012) [-]
Yeah you should, if you're planning to see the new one, you will be confused as hell if you didn't see the this one.
User avatar #65 to #59 - TheBarneyStinson (07/28/2012) [-]
Not really. If he watches Batman Begins, he'll be fine.
User avatar #66 to #65 - wilfredfanforever (07/28/2012) [-]
*SPOILER* no no no but harvey dent becomes two face,
User avatar #69 to #66 - TheBarneyStinson (07/28/2012) [-]
Yeah, but they kind of reiterate everything important that happens to Harvey at the beginning of TDKR. I think it'd be more confusing to have no idea who Ra's Al Ghul is or why everyone keeps talking about the League of Shadows.
#70 to #69 - wilfredfanforever (07/28/2012) [-]
true, but what about Bruce wayne's messed up leg, or why he retired for 8 years.
User avatar #71 to #70 - TheBarneyStinson (07/28/2012) [-]
Again, that mostly ties into what happened with Harvey and Rachel, not the Joker. Alfred mentions both of them, and talks about burning the letter.

Fair enough, I mean the scene when the Joker's on the news with his camcorder doing his thing with the Fake Batman was Michael Caine's first time EVER seeing Heath Ledger's Joker, the look on his face was completely genuine

I preferred Jack Nicholson's Joker just because it was more of an original acting character with the old show and comics. I also likes Heath Ledger's because it was more or a modern portrayal of how crazy people would get their killings done

I heard he secluded himself in the woods to get into character and ended up going crazy.

i heard it was his apartment instead of woods

Overdose on a prescription. Whether it was accidental or not is unknown.

i heard that too.. even jack nicholson warned him about the character. there are interviews of before and after and you can see the change
#9 to #5 - mistahlegend (07/27/2012) [-]
I thought he did that on the spot because he thought the Joker would do **** like that.
User avatar #10 to #9 - messerauditore (07/27/2012) [-]
again, im going off of rumors. but i was told he couldnt control that.
User avatar #16 to #5 - rjb (07/27/2012) [-]
i heard it was because if someones lips were cut like that, that saliva would constantly drip down, and ledger, being the amazing actor he is, got so much into the detail of his character, that he was licking the "saliva" off.
User avatar #13 to #5 - bloodsoakedtie (07/27/2012) [-]
It was because of the prosthetics they put on his face for the scars. They irritated him and couldnt stop sucking them but Nolan just told him to go with it
User avatar #14 to #13 - messerauditore (07/27/2012) [-]
ahh ok. that makes more sense.
User avatar #31 - Omegashenron (07/27/2012) [-]
I find his performance to be overrated, for me honestly he didn't really dig deep into the psyche of the joker like everyone acts like he did. He had maybe like 2 scenes where actually was a little creepy in his mentality, other than that he just acted insane and evil, like most villians in movies, although I did love his character and acting he wasn't odd. Now if they made a movie about Joker...that would be great!
#35 to #31 - anon (07/28/2012) [-]
I find the dark Knight to be overrated all together.
It had a few great scenes, but that's it. It's in no way God-tier like most people make out.

In fact, why can't people watch this and realise? www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx3rlE3MVxE&list=FLoYBEvcOupqTjx-cK4l500w&index=4&feature=plpp_video

Watched it, not a very good review. The critic is too involved and opinionated in his side, he comes off as an emotional bitch who hates people disagreeing with him. He has as many good points as flawed ones and gets a bit hypocritical on some points.

Why do you have so many red thumbs?! Leave him alone already!

I'm going to thumb you up because I appreciate people with a debatable argument. You took a side and gave an intelligent reason which is exactly what FJ needs to drive the idiots out of this site. You took a stand. I like that. Now, you're gonna love me:

I disagree with most of what you said, because I find his performance phenomenal. I thought he dug very deep into the psyche of the Joker and I'll give you some examples. One of the examples I want to talk about is how Heath was never "organized" during his specific acts of crime. Remember when he recorded the "regular citizen" who was pretending to be batman? Well remember when that citizen started crying and the Joker went up to him, padded his head, and said "sshh, shhh, shhh."

Then the Joker gently started slapping him in face while asking him questions. Please watch that scene again. Just that part. This specific part of the scene freaked me out beyond extent, and it's very hard to explain why, but I'm going to try.

We all imagine things. I know I've imagined what it would be like to kidnap somebody and torture them. Not because I would ever want to, but because the mind wonders and thinks about mysterious things. But ask yourself; what would you do to that person? You probably know exactly what you would do to that person and how that person would react to your torture. This is called organized perspective.

The Joker doesn't have that. He legitimately was so excited from watching this man physically lose hope in his presence that the Joker literally couldn't handle it and started touching him in the most random structure. Who pets the person they're toruring then gently slaps them from cheek to cheek, while asking them questions.

Like I said, it's very hard to explain. Please go watch this scene and try to see it in a different way. If you can see it. If you can FEEL it, imagine what Heath did to be able to deliver it to you.

That is why I disagree you.

"Other than that he just acted insane and evil"

... That's kind of what the Joker does... in every Batman story ever with the Joker he is simply insane and evil... and acknowledges it and loves it.
User avatar #33 to #32 - Omegashenron (07/27/2012) [-]
Thats what most villains do. I'm not saying his performance was bad. I loved it. But everyone seems to act like it was one of the greatest performances of the decade. Idk I think it was because he died before it's release honestly. Sucks though.
User avatar #37 to #33 - winsauceiswin (07/28/2012) [-]
well considering heath won awards stating it WAS one of the greatest performances of the decade i think it seems logical to say it was. have you ever watched heath in a different movie? the joker is soooo far from what he actually looks, sounds, and acts like that it was astounding he could act that well. that's why everyone loves him as the joker.
#39 to #37 - anon (07/28/2012) [-]
i think maybe it was his illness that made him act so well. Maybe it was an emotional release for him? idk, just an opinion :)
User avatar #40 to #39 - winsauceiswin (07/28/2012) [-]
how dare you have an opinion?!!?! jk. watch one movie with heath ledger in it other than batman, then compare his role as joker to any other character. that kind of change doesn't come from lines.
#41 to #40 - adolfoliverbush ONLINE (07/28/2012) [-]
i recommend a knights tale
User avatar #42 to #41 - winsauceiswin (07/28/2012) [-]
yes, good comparison. how does he go from THAT to joker? it's such an insane change. (no pun intended) also that's one of my favorite movies from when i was younger
#43 to #42 - adolfoliverbush ONLINE (07/28/2012) [-]
i've seen it like 20 times and it stays just as good, overall Heath Ledger is one of my favorite actors
User avatar #44 to #43 - winsauceiswin (07/28/2012) [-]
yeah its sucks he is gone =[
#45 to #44 - adolfoliverbush ONLINE (07/28/2012) [-]
a shame
User avatar #64 to #33 - Galante (07/28/2012) [-]
Most villains act evil and insane for a purpose. Money, world domination, revenge, you name it. Now, The Joker, he is a different kind of evil. He is just evil because he likes the chaos it causes. He even says so in The Dark Knight, when he's in the hospital room with Harvey Dent/Two-Face. He doesn't care about money, or world domination, not even his arch nemesis, Batman. He wants Batman alive so they can endlessly fight and create CHAOS.

And to portray a crazy character with no defined motivation was a great accomplishment by Heath Ledger. Because you know that behind that paint, and crazyness, there is a cause to his whole madness. He has burst of anger and he boasts about his scars giving out the idea that something happened to him, and drove him insane.

#112 to #24 - anon (07/28/2012) [-]
you know why he went insane he put everything into it and acting insane for that long of a time and putting everything into being insane made him insane and he was a great ******* actor so yes even 50 years from now we will make however big a deal out of him as we want

The only thing I have wrong with this is that on not one occasion did heath and michael actually share the screen. Why was he afraid of the thought of something he at that point he probably hadn't seen. I call ******** !
User avatar #48 to #46 - rbrim (07/28/2012) [-]
He was probably on set shooting other scenes where they weren't involved. He probably got creeped out when he saw Heath Ledger in make-up staring at him from beyond the cameras.
#50 to #48 - wilfredfanforever (07/28/2012) [-]
Well who else wouldn't get creeped the ****** out if this was staring at you from behind the cameras?
