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