based on direction from the HK Government Office for Film, Newspaper and Article Administration

Why pretend anymore?  Xi didn't understand Tenet and now doesn't want anyone to see any Nolan movie.

Incidentally, if your government has a <<<Government Office for Film, Newspaper and Article Administration>>>

You might just be run by a dictator.

No one understood Tenet.  They had to explain that movie to the audience every 10-15 minutes.

No.

Jack Nicholson played Jack Nicholson in that movie.

Heath Ledger invented something surreal.

No he didn't, he just played psycho. Now he did take it to the next level with the Joker and did a great job doing it.

/ TDK is a weak movie, kept up by supporting actors killing it with a dumb script

Hamil is the best b/c he can play it both ways; the Jack Nicholson version, the showman who wants to put on a great spectacle, even if he's the only audience who "gets it." The Heath Ledger pure chaotic weirdo who wants to blow everything up. Hamil could play both depending on the episode/writer.

king of vegas: Jack was a better Joker


While yes, I do love that joker, He's neither better or worse than other portrayals;  just different.

Ledger's was so radically different than anything we had seen previously, and so good, that i do find that performance pretty hard to top.

But even though jack was certainly still jack, the goofy way he played it up and rode the line of being comedic and still sinister also really worked well. It was right for the time, too;

The way things are looking humanity won't move forward until Russia, China, and the United States are wiped off the map.

Stupid as fark. It's a great movie that also reminds you the absolute power of a comprehensive surveillance network.

What could the Mainland Chinese have issue with in that message?

I recall thinking the puzzle of the two ferrys was logically stupid, but I don't even remember what it was all about any more.
