OK, so the over-sized fabric and stitching on the jacket kind of give it away, but man. Whoever is doing the modelling at Hong Kong toy company Hot Toys needs a round of applause. The likeness here is terrifying.

Priced at $275, and due out in December, this Joker piece - that is actually a poseable action figure - comes with alternate heads, alternate hands, a ton of gear and the distinct possibility it will scare any small children it comes into contact with.

As excited as I am for Dark Knight Rises, I can't help but feel like Nolan has no chance of living up to the second film. Heath Ledger's Joker will forever be the epitome of comic book movies.

From what I've seen in the trailers, Dark Knight Rises looks like it will be a fair bit cheesier than the second. That football stadium scene was just a little too ridiculous for me. I realize comic books don't go for realism most of the time, but anything that isn't on the level of The Dark Knight will be a disappointment for me now.

I fucking hated The Avengers. I really don't understand the rave reviews for it. Don't get me wrong, it was a fun movie, but it was so predictable and cliche that I got bored. The cheesy acting and dumb jokes just killed it for me.
