Things don't go well for Sal.

I watched this movie yesterday. Weird. And so good. Without a doubt, the best Batman soundtrack.
This movie was good primarily because for the first (and last time) Batman actually had character in it.
Well, some of DC's recent direct-to-video offerings are pretty damn good too. "Batman: Year One", "Under the Red Hood", and "Son of Batman" spring to mind.
There hasn't been a better Joker than Mark Hamill's, though. All respect to Heath Ledger and his very singular take, there's no comparing him to anyone else, but Mark Hamill sets the standard.

After Batman kills Captain Clown, the Joker marries his wife.
AM DUMPING YOU FOR A ROBOT. UNLIKE YOU, SHE LETS ME REMOVE PIECES OF HER CHEEK AND PUT THEM IN MY POCKET WHENEVER I WANT. ALSO SHE'S A MAID. GEORGE JETSON HAD A ROBOT MAID, AND YOU KNOW WHAT SHE CALLED HIM? "MR. J." CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'D PLAGIARIZE LIKE THAT. THIS CLOWN MARRIAGE IS OVER.
INCAPABLE OF FEELING LOVE,
PS: By now you might have noticed the white powder I coated this envelope with. Toodles!

What's great about Hamill's Joker (and this scene in particular) is that he's genuinely funny without ever losing his sinister, unhinged vibe. Modern portrayals tend to go too far in the scary direction, to the point that you end up with a generic psycho killer who just happens to be wearing clown makeup.
This Joker is all the more frightening because you actually can laugh at him, and that feels weird because you know that there's a monster lurking right under the gags.

I have no trouble agreeing that Hamill played the best Joker on the small screen, and I preferred him to Nicholson too--Ledger's a tough call. But I would like to submit Brent Spiner as the worst Joker, worse even than Bender the robot, for his appearance in the otherwise good Young Justice show.
Two Jar Slave: the worst Joker is Joker from "The Batman", the show where they insisted that Batman is always "The Batman" but the Joker is always just "Joker".
It wasn't that it was terrible exactly, but it was trying way too hard.
I can find little to appreciate about "The Batman".

Allegedly, Tim Curry's Joker was too frightening for a cartoon at the time. There's a short demo video on YouTube of his take, and it's pretty dark compared to Hamill.
What I wouldn't give to hear Tim Curry yell "You killed Captain Clown!"

I think part of the brilliance of the original Batman TAS was that the voice acting was so spot on, well cast. Biff Tannen as Joe Chill was fantastic.
