Holy Crap. Loki and myself caught a midnight showing of The Dark Knight last night. I'm exhausted today, but it was well worth it. I'm sure most of you have read or at least heard of the hype surrounding the movie and Heath Ledger's death. I wasn't crazy sad about Heath dying when he did, cause let's face it, he OD'ed on some drugs. It was more like Anna Nicole Smith part 2 than American hero dying too young. But now that I've seen what he could do with this Joker character, I really think it's a shame he's gone. So seriously, see this movie. There weren't any extra characters that went passed the storyline, there wasn't anything that sucked (Aaron Eckhart and Ledger stood out, with Bale doing a decent job and Maggie "I look old and wrinkly" Gyllenhaal wasn't too bad either).
Nah, I'm totally kidding, I wouldn't ruin anyone's movie going experience. I just always see those "spoilers below" things on other sites and I thought I'd give it the old college try. Purple monkey chicken butt.
So all in all, go see the damn movie. It's awesome. It's by far the best movie I've seen in the past five or so years. Just do it. The action sequences are thrilling, the Joker is an absolute madman, and even the citizens of Gotham are semi-realistic. This movie really combines the good characters, evil characters, and the tough choices that the men have to make to save Gotham. Both Harvey Dent (Eckhart's character) and Batman have to sacrifice their souls. This movie also shows how both characters come to grips with just how far they'd go to save the city. This movie gets 10/10, 5 stars outta 5, and a partridge in a pear tree.
