    It was good but I preferred Iron Man...

    Iron Man was more fun whereas Dark Knight was haunting. I loved it but I don't think I can sit through it again anytime soon.

    I read one review that said Nicholson's Joker was more of the Caesar Romero type.

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.


    I didn't really see that much from DK Returns in it. But there was a ton of Year One, most of the Dent/Gordon/Wayne stuff.

    Seriously awesome flick.

    I just saw it as well. I thought it blew Iron Man out of the water, but thats just me. It was pretty awesome. The hype was about on target.

    Just got out of the theater. Lived up to they hype ok, but it was pretty dark, no pun intended. Ledger was...well...pretty darn impressive. He should get some hardware for that portrayal, even if it will be posthumous. The friend who went with me said he liked Iron Man better, and I think that maybe that's because Iron Man was a little lighter. It was a great film though, especially from an artistic point of view.

    I took two of my sons to see it this afternoon. They both liked it a lot. I liked it, I agree that Ledger was great.....but I enjoyed Iron Man a lot more.

    I loved it. Brilliantly executed. Ledger was masterful.

    I saw it twice Friday. The Joker was astonishing to say the least.

    It's not at all kid-friendly. There was a couple sitting in front of me yesterday with a 3-year-old boy. Not a good move on their part.

    The projector also "broke" during the movie when I saw it. Twice. During the last 15 minutes of the movie. There were 400 not-happy people in the theater. My next movie is on Cinema De Lux.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    BTW, The Watchmen looks like it is going to be good.

    After thinking about it for over 24 hours now, I have this to say: If I wasn't married, and this movie was a lady, I'd marry it.
