The JOKER Movie

I know that a lot of bloggers and enthusiast will write about how great "The Dark Knight" movie is and how Christian Bale has portrayed Batman so well... Everyone would also say that this is the best Batman Movie that came out so far and I totally agree with that...

With what I am about to say may angry all the Batman Fans out there... But I believe that THE JOKER played by Heath Ledger has outshined Batman in this movie...

Yes, Christian Bale has also portrayed Batman very well especially in this new movie... He has given justice to the role... But I think his image here i quite different from what Batman should have been in the comics... The type of person who likes being alone and keeps everything to himself... I don't know but this is how I saw it...

I think "Two Face" was a great additional character to the film, but I think it did not really shown of what his true character is in the movie... He played a little part in the end only...

Now for me, the high light of the movie is really THE JOKER....

It seems that THE JOKER has really over shadowed BATMAN in this movie... It's how Heath Ledger has really given life to JOKER that you almost can't tell if it's just acting or a really person... It was really quite disturbing how he does everything in the movie... The voice and laugh was really great (I hope it's not just any dubbing or effect) because it really has given life to JOKER... THE JOKER here showed Mannerism that is not in the real character of the real JOKER in the comics... But I must admit it has added more creappiness in his character...

I also think Heath Ledger is the best JOKER character compared to the veteran actor Jack Nicholson... It's as if he has become the character that he is portraying, being the JOKER himself inside...

More importantly, we must not forget to give praise to the person who wrote the story for this film... All hands down (samba) to Writer: David Goyer, for coming up with a great story for The Dark Knight... He scences keeps me guessing on what will happen next and what will Joker do next... The Joker really had taken control of all the situations in the movie... How he plotted against everyone, The Mob, The Police, Batman and everyone else... Putting up a show for everyone, being the new breed of Gangsters in town... Fueled, not by money and greed but the sheer passion for crime, havoc and chaos... He keeps on manipulating people, bring-out the inner demons that everyone has in themselves... He even turned a great man "Harvey Dent" in a villain which is "Two Face"...

Their is one line of JOKER that keeps on lingering in my head "You Complete Me"... At first, it made me laugh because it's a very corny line to say in a very good movie but come to think of it, that line has a deep meaning into it... "You Complete Me", may sound mushy but the true meaning is that, NO HERO can be really called A HERO without having an ARCHENEMY... A Villain that almost equals the Hero... Because without an Archenemy he is not a Hero, he is just a normal crime fighter... Just like SUPERMAN and LEX LUTHOR, CAPT. AMERICA and RED SKULL... Before anyone can really be called a Hero is when he has proven himself by defeating his greatest enemy that is were he will really be known...


I would also like to add something on my blog... Last July 17, Thursday, I was suprissed that our company was given a Movie Pass by one our partners "ACER". It was chance to watch the Movie early on and the best thing is for FREE... Our company was given 10 tickets of this, but ofcourse it was given to our Marketing Manager. She was the one who distributed it to the people inside the office who wanted to watch the movie... I also got a ticket, but unfortunately I had alot of work to be done on that day, 4 meeting with a client and I even have to got to Antipolo to deliver a service unit for my bosses client... I just told our Marketing Manager that I could not watch the movie since I will be out the whole day... And the sadest part it that the ticket is only applicable on that day only...


After my 3rd client visit, I called the client from Antipolo is it's ok with them for us to make the delivery on the following day, and they agreed... So I returned to the office earlier that expected... My ticket was already given out to someone else already, I wanted to get it back but I opted not to... My reason is plain and simple, most of my officemates will be watching and we aren't really that close so I think I won't enjoy watching the movie... I would rather spend and buy my own ticket and watch it with my friends...

i totally agree... not to undermine christian bale but heath ledger owned the movie. =)

too bad he's dead. such a waste!

axel said...

Yeah, actually of all the actors who worn the batman suite in the movies Christian Bale was the best for me... But never the less, Heath Ledger was really extra ordinary...

Yeah!! What a waste of good actor!!! Andito pa naman ako... hehehe...
