    Dark Knight was a pretty awesome movie, but it’s too bad that they killed off two-face so soon. And it was also too bad that Heath Ledger died from a drug over dose on sleeping pills, he did an excellent job of playing the part of the Joker! But who will play the part for Joker on the next Batman? I was thinking that maybe Crispen Glover could play the part, yes?, no?

    I loved Dark Knight too but, to me, Iron Man was totally brilliant.
    On the subject of the Joker, Heath Ledger was so utterly mesmerizing (and his sudden death so utterly tragic) that the character should be laid to rest along with Heath.
