A Bad, Bad Man

The boys and I saw Batman last night. Heath Ledger plays the villain, The Joker. This is a world-class nasty dude. He is just a wildly over-the-top, scary, chilling and spellbinding villain. Remember Drexel, the crazy white Rasta pimp in True Romance? ("Hey, Marty! This ain't whiteboy day, is it?") Well, this Joker is in that league. He just steals every scene he's in, as a good villain should.

By a coincidence, Gary Oldman, the actor who played Drexel, also appears in Batman, but this time he's the Police Commissioner.

LOVED Drexel with his milky eye and bad toofies. Gary Oldman is astonishing.

Looking forward to seeing this one. Christian Bale strikes the perfect balance, in my opinion.

My 19-year-old son went to see it again tonight. No wonder the movie is raking in the cash.
