Happy birthday to Mr. Jack Nicholson,
80 years completed today.

Jack Nicholson is a legendary American actor who has been one of the biggest stalwarts of Hollywood for close to 6 decades and within that period he has delivered some of the most iconic performances that the world of cinema has ever seen.

Jack Nicholson was born in Neptune City, New Jersey, United States, on 22 April, 1937 to June Frances Nicholson. Her mother worked as a show girl and was unaware of the identity of her father. Nicholson grew up with his mother’s family; his grandparents brought him up as their own child and he was told that her mother was actually his elder sister. He learnt the truth many years later when he became a famous name and it only came about because of some background research carried out by a magazine.

Nicholson initially started off as a stage actor and then became a B-movie star; as a result he decided to try his hand at screenplay writing thinking that he would never be able to make it in Hollywood. However it all changed after he delivered the screenplay for the movie ‘The Trip’ and then managed to get a role in the film ‘Easy Rider’ by way of the actors who were part of the cast of ‘The Trip’.

It was in 1974 that Jack Nicholson was cast in Roman Polanski’s cult classic thriller ‘Chinatown’ and Nicholson’s role as the detective earned praise from critics and viewers alive. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for that role. The next year Nicholson delivered his greatest ever performance in ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ and followed it up with ‘The Passenger’ the same year.

In 1980, Jack Nicholson appeared in yet another landmark role and this time it was in ‘The Shining’ directed by Stanley Kubrick. The 1980s was a productive period for Nicholson as he starred in such films like ‘Reds’, ‘The Postman Always Rings Twice’ ‘Ironweed’ and ‘Terms of Endearment’ among others. Nicholson portrayed the role of ‘The Joker’ in the movie ‘Batman’ released in 1989 and the film was a resounding success as it earned close to $100 million. Three years later he delivered another memorable performance in the film ‘A Few Good Men’

Throughout his career Jack Nicholson has gone for a variety of roles and garnered a reputation of being one of the most versatile actors of modern times. Films like ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’, ‘Terms of Endearment’ and ‘As Good as It Gets’ among others has immortalised him while he has also won the coveted Academy Award thrice to equal the record for most wins. Jack Nicholson is without doubt among the greatest that Hollywood has ever had.

Back in the late 1980's, Tim Burton and Michael Keaton teamed up to bring the Dark Knight back to his dark roots and make audiences forget about the campy 60's series. The plot his a classic cat and mouse scenario which works to the films advantage. After a dangerous killer (Jack Nicholson) fall into a vat of chemicals, he becomes the Batman's arch nemesis, The Joker. Now trying to kill the population of Gotham, it's up to Batman to foil his plans.

Both Keaton and Nicholson share the screen equally, having enough screen time to keep us interested with their characters. Keaton was and still is the best live action Batman, playing a quiet and thought provoking Bruce Wayne and a dark and badass Batman. Nicholson is essentially his opposite being loud, creepy, darkly humorous and completely insane.

Gotham City has Tim Burton's unique style of Gothic cinematography and surreal atmosphere, which perfectly suits the world of Batman. The Batcave, Batmobile and gadgets are all classic Batman and they appear here at their best. The film fits the bill as a Batman film really well.

A dark and refreshing interpretation of one of comic kingdom's most beloved characters, "Batman" successfully wiped away the memory of the camp 1960s television show and proved that comic book movies can be highly entertaining viewing.

Google could release their own ad-blocker for Chrome

The ad-blocking feature, which could be switched on by default within Chrome, would filter out certain online ad types deemed to provide bad experiences for users as they move around the web.

Seeing as advertisements are main source for Google's revenue, I'm sure if they introduced a feature like this, the ad-blocker would only block ads on sites that are 'bad' or don't meet certain criteria.

Since Chrome is the world's #1 web browser, behavior as this would greatly impact all users across the web, across all browsers and platforms. Everybody wins.

I hope this report is true. Ads are a necessary evil and we need a better solution than just blocking everything.
