    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    Saw the 3:25am showing of TDK @ IMAX (Red Rock). Wow.

    Simply, wow.

    Heath Ledger owned the role. The best villain of all time imo.

    And everything about the movie was just about perfect, from the acting to the cinematography. Just wow.

    I can't wait to see it....had a chance to see it Wednesday, but getting from work to the showing in time, with still some leftover traffic wasn't going to happen. Some things you can't control.

    They need more sneak previews in Springdale or Norwood rather than Florence.

    Amazing movie. Probably my favorite all time movie now. Ledger was fantastic to say the least. I've never seen a villian did like Ledger did the The Joker. He was subtley funny but a second later he would have a powerful and serious scene. The story was great and the actors were great. Just a great movie.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    Just got back from seeing it.

    Plan on spending about three hours in the movie theater(including previews), but it is well worth it. This one was better than Batman Begins and topped Iron Man, which set the bar pretty high anyways.

    As great as Heath Ledger was, I honestly believe Aaron Eckhart did a superb role in playing Harvey Dent/Two Face. He didn't get near the publicity as Ledger, but he was just as great.

    I really thought they could have done a better job of replacing Katie Holmes. Maggie Gyllenhall wasn't the type that inexplicably stood out. Probably a last second fix before filming began. Outside of that, it was an all-star cast.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    Just got home from seeing it. I'll have to agree with what some others have said: It's one of the best movies I've ever seen.

    The hype on Ledger's performance is no hype at all. He was simply amazing. It's a crime film that just happens to have a crazy guy in a bat suit against another crazy guy who thinks he's a clown.

    I'm about to watch Batman Begins, which I haven't seen yet. The hype around Dark Knight has me genuinely interested though. I'll probably go see it sunday.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    Oh. lemme add one more thing.

    NOT A MOVIE FOR KIDS. While I don't have any, I'm just guessing here, but I wouldn't let my kid watch this til at least 13 or so. Tons of violence and a ton of BRUTAL implied violence.

    And Two-Face will give the young'uns nightmares. Seriously.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was just wondering if it was kid friendly.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    Saw it at 4:30 today. Really a brilliant film and it needed every moment of its run length to cover the collection of sub plots. The final Spiderman film demonstrated how many sub-plots can be tied together in a clumsy fashion. Not so with this film.

    Prior to seeing it, I'd heard references to "The Killing Joke", and I can see that at times- particularly when the Joker talks about how he got his scars and in a very insightful conversation with Batman- but IMHO the primary feed is from Frank Miller's "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns". Ledger's exceptionally well-acted Joker persona is literally ripped from the pages of that legendary mini-series. While I didn't stay for the credits, both Miller and Alan Moore should have received some kind of creative credit for the film.

    I honestly can't wait until everyone in the universe has had a chance to see this film in order to better talk about it in detail.

    After seeing the movie, I'm actually kind of surprised it landed a PG-13 rating.

    I just watched it tonight. Fantastic movie. Ledger was just great. His performance was so fantastic it blows away everyone that ever played the role of Joker before.

    Re: Batman:The Dark Knight

    The darkest, most brutal PG-13 I've ever seen. I don't know how anyone under 13 can not have nightmares after watching this let alone understand it.

    That said, IT WAS AWESOME.
