The Dark Knight….Simply Amazing!

July 19, 2008 2 comments

Finally saw “The Dark Knight” and I have to say that it was EXCELLENT. From beginning to end. It is the best comic book movie made to date. Coming in at a close 2nd and 3rd are Spiderman and the X-Men franchise’s respectively. I can’t think of much else that can complement the movie more. The 2.5 hours was time well spent.

Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker was phenomenal. Hats off to Heath Ledger and to Christopher Nolan for writing and directing this movie. It was a real change of pace to see the Batman franchise stay true to the comics and make the Joker as ruthless as in the comics. In this movie you truly saw “The Joker” and not Heath Ledger at all. He immersed himself into this character and there was not one time throughout the movie that it did not show.

Christian Bale was also amazing as Batman. Best pick to date. In the movie I really liked how he struggled with actually being Batman and what it meant to him and Gotham City. I don’t want to ruin it for people who have not seen it, but his performance was really good.

Also, Aaron Eckhart was very surprising in this movie a well. Harvey Dent/Two-Face was well played. His conversion from crime fighting district attorney to the insane Two-Face was very well done.

There are alot of surprises in the movie and there is so much to see that it’s alot to take in. I enjoyed this movie very much and can’t wait to see it again. GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!! You will not be dissapointed.

The Dark Knight…..I’m Patiently Waiting!!

I can easily say that “The Dark Knight” will be the biggest movie of the summer, or maybe the year. I cannot wait to see this movie. I have been hearing alot of buzz and even one review from Kevin Smith who saw an advance¬†screening of the movie and simply stated, “Nolan and crew have created a near masterpiece.” Those who know Kevin Smith also know how dear he holds comic books to heart.

Another big reason to see the movie is for Heath Ledger. I do think he was a great actor. I don’t think that many male actors could have pulled off Brokeback Mountain the way he did.

July 18th can’t come fast enough!!

As a tribute to the movie, I also changed my banner. Hope you guys like it.
