Humans like to debate things, most of us donít even care what the topic is, the very fact that there is a topic is more than enough reason for us to grab it with both hands and debate the life out of it.
Remember a time when we used to debate the existence of God? That is old news!
Remember a time when we used to debate the meaning of life? Ha! That is so last week!
If, like myself, you enjoy little more than a good old fashioned debate, you will no doubt have dropped such insignificant concerns and you will be debating something much more powerful.
Who was better as The Joker, Nicholson or Ledger?
While it is true that I love a good debate I feel it necessary to skip past that whole process of weighing up evidence and jump straight to the only sensible conclusion. Donít choose. You donít have to choose. They both did an equally wonderful job with the character and, most importantly, they both played the character differently.
Iíll no doubt be attacked by hundreds of Heather Ledger fans for saying this, but is it not possible, ever so slightly, that the popular ďLedger was better than NicholsonĒ statement is partially influenced by the fact that the young actor died in such shocking circumstances?
Ledger was brilliant.
Nicholson was brilliant.
Both films are brilliant.
Besides, I donít know about you guys but I once saw some footage of Nicholson attacking a vehicle with a Golf club in some sort of Golf-rage incident, do you really want to risk upsetting Jack?
