Is Maggie Gyllenhaal supposed to be the character that Katie Holmes was in the last movie? If Batman's so powerful, doesn't he notice she's a different person? And why, whenever I hear Heath Ledger's voice, do I think of Carol Burnett?
No Batman film would tick without a villain, and in the best personification of any comic villain Heath Ledger takes the prize (and most likely an Oscar). Not because he's dead -- because he's that good.
So no, I don't like the fact that Heath Ledger is dead, but I'm not going to clap when I see his name on a movie screen. Why? Because neither Heath Ledger nor the people who actually cared about him can hear me.
