I like Jared Leto, and think he's a pretty decent actor. I think he can pull off the Joker.

That being said, the tattoos are....just not Joker. I read another comment at a different site that summed up part of the problem - Does anyone think the Joker could sit still long enough to actually allow a tattoo artist to do all that. You'd have a pile of dead ones somewhere.

Plus, like someone said up above, it looks too Hot Topic. Like the person who designed this really doesn't get who/what the Joker is and thought to himself, "Hmmmmm...I know...tattoos make people look scary and crazy! Yeah, we'll give him a bunch of wicked tats!"

Ultimately, for me, it's just one more nail in the coffin of this movie. Harley Quinn? Yeah, thanks, but no thanks. I've always hated that character. I think it was the voice that did it. And, since I rarely get to go see a movie anyway, there's no way I'll pay money to see this one in a theater.

Carol Burnett once worked as an usherette at the Warner (now Pacific) Theater on Hollywood Blvd. One night, the movie playing was Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train (1951), a film Carol had seen and loved. She advised a late arriving couple to wait until the next show, because the film was so good, it should be seen from beginning to end. The manager overheard her, rudely fired her on the spot, and humiliated her by ripping the epaulets off her usherette uniform. Decades later, when she was to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she was asked by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce where she would like it placed. Carol asked that her star be placed in front of the Pacific Theater. In her memoir "One More Time", she states the name of the manager who so rudely fired her, followed by an epithet that won't be repeated here. The star is at 6433 Hollywood Blvd.

Also, friend Monkey, you should totally come visit Houston. If you visited while it was still "winter" we could grill outside without it being too hot.

Al Pacino stopped a two-pack-a-day smoking habit to protect his voice. In the mid-1980s he had been smoking four packs of cigarettes a day. He now only occasionally smokes herbal cigarettes.

Djimon Hounsou came to Paris from Benin at the age of 13, couldn't find a job and ended as a vagrant, sleeping under bridges and rummaging in trash cans for food. Things changed for the better when fashion designer Thierry Mugler discovered him and made him a fashion model.

Before finally enjoying success on his own in the late 1960s, Glen Campbell was one of the top studio guitarists on the West Coast for more than a decade. A list of performers he accompanied reads almost like a who's-who of the top names of the era and includes Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, Nat 'King' Cole, Frankie Laine, Ricky Nelson, Jan Berry and Dean Torrence (aka Jan and Dean), Judy Garland, Dean Martin, The Kingston Trio (contributing a fourth voice on their 1963 hit "Desert Pete," you can easily hear him on the chorus), The Crickets and The Limeliters.

The wife and I had to do a double take last night at dinner, because we both could have sworn the boy was complaining because another boy at daycare wouldn't share "the women".

Turns out, he was saying "the lemon."

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became Queen in a tree house. At the time of her father's death she was staying at the Treetops Hotel. It is literally built into the tops of the trees of the Aberdares National Park as a tree house, offering the guests a close view of the local wildlife in complete safety. It was there that, uniquely, she "went up a Princess and came down a Queen". She was the first British monarch since the Act of Union in 1801 to be outside the country at the moment of succession, and also the first in modern times not to know the exact time of her accession (because her father, George VI, had died in his sleep at an unknown time). On the night her father died, Sir Horace Hearne, then Chief Justice of Kenya, escorted The Princess Elizabeth, as she then was, to a state dinner at the Treetops Hotel. Upon finding out that she was now Queen she returned immediately to Britain.

Tim Curry was the producers' first choice for the role on the Batman animated series. However, after recording four episodes, his take on the Joker was deemed as too scary for children, and thus the part was given to Mark Hamill.

He also auditioned for the role of Judge Doom in Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), but was rejected at audition for being too terrifying. The role instead went to Christopher Lloyd.

The Joule-Thomson Effect is defined as the change in gas temperature which occurs when the gas is expanded at constant enthalpy from a higher pressure to a lower pressure. The effect for most gases at normal pressure, except hydrogen and helium, is a cooling of the gas.

In 2012, Ron Perlman once again endured the 4-hour makeup routine required to transform him into Hellboy -- not for a sequel or other acting job but to fulfill the Make-A-Wish request of a six-year-old boy named Zachary who has leukemia. Creature effects house Spectral Motion applied Perlman's Hellboy makeup (and later also made up Zachary as Hellboy as well), and then Zachary got to spend the day hanging out with "Hellboy".

Jennie Garth is referenced in the classic BBS door game "Legend of the Red Dragon" by Seth A. Robinson. "Legend of the Red Dragon" was an on-line RPG featured on many dial-up Bullentin Boards around the country in the early 1990s. While adventuring in the forest, the player was sometimes asked cryptically "What's the deal with Jennie Garth?". The player's character was rewarded or punished based on various responses.

Just as a follow-up: I have long been convinced that Linda Hunt is one of the most bad-ass human beings on the planet, and probably has to struggle daily with the urge to use her mad skillz to end us all in a hurricane of violence.

Linda Hunt was the first actor to have won an Academy Award portraying a member of the opposite sex. She won the Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar for her role as Billy Kwan in The Year of Living Dangerously (1982). Note this was not Linda Hunt playing a woman pretending to be a man, like Barbra Streisand did in Yentl (1983) or, in reverse, as Dustin Hoffman did in Tootsie (1982), but Hunt playing a man in a serious drama.

Unbeknown to many people, who consider Lon Chaney a "horror actor", he was an amazing dancer in his stage years. The only film that contains footage of him dancing is the incomplete The Fascination of the Fleur de Lis (1915). He was also known to be a hilarious comedian. In fact, one report of the day said, "As a comedian, he is irresistible". And according to Michael F. Blake (Chaney's biographer), Lon could even sing. Sadly, no audio recordings exist of Chaney singing, but people who knew him said that he had a rich baritone voice.

Whoa! That was pretty f@@!ing cool!

Spoiler:
WOOT!!! MORGAN!!! And what a badass he's become!!

Loved the parts with the wolves. That's gonna get crazy.

Carol, showing she's ultra badass again in her confrontation with a#+%!+! Pete.

That trap the wolves set was cool. I was worried for a second that Daryl or Aaron was well and truly f~$$ed. Daryl with the chain - how cool was that? Ninja Morgan to the rescue!!

Glen should have shot Nicholas in the knee and left him for the Walkers. That dude's a pissy little tool and he needs to die.

And that ending. Poor Reg. But at least Sasha took a step towards recovering (and maybe Gabriel?), and Deana showed a bit of a spine, telling Rick to go ahead and put a round in a~*~%~% Pete.

Lastly, WTF?!? Dude who plays Morgan is a Brit?!? Holy S++#BALLS!

There’s too many threads! Condense them down and make sub threads. And when a topic gets closed move it to an archive of some kind so people don’t have to scroll for miles looking at dead closed threads. If they want to look at inactive stuff they can go to the archive folder or whatever storage house you want for it.

I remember the last time a special little snowflake made a recommendation like this. It spawned a thread that reached such a large number posts, it almost broke the site. So they shut that thread down and we started a sequel. Eventually, they had to shut that one down as well. Same with the third, fourth, fifth, and....crap, I can't remember which sequel number we're on now. But so far the latest is at over 100,000 posts.

Then, I go to pick up the boy at daycare. It's parent/teacher conference day. I took care of mine earlier in the day, via phone. When I get to his class, the boy is outside with everyone else, but his teacher is conducting a conference with a mom, her two sons (one is in the boy's class, the other looked a year or so older) are running around the class and getting in my way. I get the boy from outside and bring him in, the boy in his class grabs him from behind and starts squeezing. And it wasn't a DAMNED hug.

So, remarkably I restrain my temper, separate the boys, and send move my boy off to one side. The kids older brother started doing the same damn thing to my boy. Again, however, I showed restraint, separated them, and stayed between my boy and them.

I didn't say anything to the teacher, because (a) the mother was right there, (b) I didn't want to start anything because I was pretty pissed and didn't want to end up saying something I'd regret.

Needless to say, however, when the wife and I go to pick up the kids tomorrow, something will be said. I am not going to let some little bastard bully my boy.

Critic Roger Ebert so admired M. Emmet Walsh that he created the "Stanton-Walsh Rule," which states that "no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad." Ebert later admitted this rule was broken by Wild Wild West (1999), in which Walsh appeared.

Okay... Moving right along...

My apologies, youngster, if my previous post was too cryptic for you. Sometimes I forget who is and isn't a Noob on the boards.

I shall endeavor to explain more clearly.

There is a legend. A legend of ancient and terrible beings who have roamed the labyrinthine corridors of this digital realm since the early days. One of them is known as Sebastian. He once appeared as an angry, bald dwarf, but has since taken his true form of a Bella Sara Pony Lord. Some say he sold his soul to infernal beings, in order to gain his equine form and rainbow-fart powers. Others say that's just standard for lawyers. Whatever the truth, he remains. Out there! Somewhere! The Bringer of Stinging Rebukes! The Lord of Endless Grouchiness! Sebastian the PonyLawyer!! Look upon his rainbow hues, ye mighty, and despair!!!

According to the James Bond film tailors in London, at 6' 2" Timothy Dalton is the tallest of all the Bond actors. The tailors who have fitted and measured each of the 5 Bonds over the years claim the following heights for each of the other Bond actors: Sean Connery 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, George Lazenby 6' 1 1/2" without shoes, Roger Moore 6' 1" without shoes and Pierce Brosnan 6' 1" without shoes.

*note - to forestall the inevitable pointing out of the above leaving out Daniel Craig, I double checked, and IMDB has him listed at 5'10".
