The Dark Knight

If you are reading this right now, there is a 100% chance that you have seen the Dark Knight. It was an intense, dramatic film with flawless comedic relief starring Heath Ledger with other actors making cameos to lessen the awesomeness.

Just The Facts

  1. The Dark Knight is the sequal to the popular Batman Begins movie directed by Christopher Nolan to be mortifyingly realistic.
  2. The new batman franchise has yet to find an attractive woman to play the love intrest for Bruce Wayne.
  3. The movie won 2 oscars the year it came out, including one for recently deceased Heath Ledger as best supporting actor.
  4. why so serious is the most overquoted line since wazzap. And if you've said it before, punch yourself in the face.

Heath Ledger as the Joker

Arguably the most talked about performance by any actor of any character in movie history, Ledger clearly redefined the character of the Joker. The evolution of the Joker can be seen <a href="http://www.cracked.com/funny-127-the-joker/" >here</a>. Ledger won an Oscar and coined several phrases, such as "why so serious," "wanna know how I got these scars," and "ima fuck you with my clown shaped dick*" *ommitted from version of the Dark Knight you have seen There is also speculation that the role of the Jokert was too traumatizing for Ledger's sanity. While this may seem unrealistic, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzzTFJWOOXk&feature=related" rel="nofollow" >Consider how batshit crazy Jack Nicklson is then realize he advised ledger to watch the fuck out.</a>

The rest of the Movie

While some of you may be saying.... there was more to the Dark Knight then Heath Ledger? we at cracked like to apreciate art in the subtler, less apreciated parts of a movie, such as the bloodspater of a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick victum or the obvious fakeness of the fights in Rocky (seriousely, just turn off the volume and watch bad miming action). Take for instance the music of Hans Zimmer, which set a dramatic mood to the movie as you neglected to listen to it, or the blatant unatractivness of Maggie Gyllenhaal. And it's very important not to forget how hard it would be to not laugh at the "masked" voice of Batman. Hell, the terribleness of Christian Bale's acting makes us almost miss Adam West.christian bale 2.0, complete with batlaughter!

Come Back to us Adam West. But leave the tights... we dont need those
