No Joke....Batman Rocks!

If you haven't seen The Dark Knight yet, you are in for a treat when you do. So often big blockbusters disappoint. All the hype, promotion, build up- usually leads to a huge let down. This film delivered on so many levels: The cinemetography, the acting, the casting, the colors, the stunts, the script-etc. All mind blowing. Best movie I've seen this year. Funnily enough, my top 3 are comic book movies: Batman, Ironman, Hulk. Can you say "Nerdfest"? Regardless. This movie really made me happy (all 2.5 hours) and I hope Heath Ledger wins an Oscar. He deserves it. He was perfect. Christian Bale makes a really good Batman and an even better Bruce Wayne. Morgan Freeman adds the cherry on top. All of the cast was great. Go see it already!

I also loved it! I entered the theatre cautious of the Heath Ledger hype, thinking some of it may have come simply because he is dead. But, it is all true. He was amazing.

How many people do you think you've convinced to see Dark Knight?

AMEN! Preach it, Jim!!
We've seen it twice with a 3rd viewing (possibly IMAX) in the near future.
