Movie Review- The Dark Knight

19 Jul

I know I usually don’t do reviews on movies, but this was too good to pass up.  Last night, I saw the newest installment of the Batman movies, The Dark Knight.  Let me just say that it was probably the best movie I have seen in a long, long time.  For the past five years, every time I watched a movie, I’d pick the plot apart and anticipate everything.  Additionally, I’d think about how they did all the effects and screenplay.  With Dark Knight, all that internal dissection disappeared as I got deeper and deeper into it.

I would like to note that Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker was simply stunning.  Every time he was on screen, I didn’t know whether to laugh at what he said/did or be disgusted.  It was truly magical.  A lot of people have been saying that he’s going to win a ton of awards because he’s dead and people feel bad, but I believe that he could have won tons even if he was alive.

Here is the trailer for the movie:

Now, I didn’t really think much of the trailer, but I still wanted to see the movie because the first Christian Bale version was good.  The actual movie, trumped all expectations.  So go out and see it.  If I felt fine about spending $10 for a single ticket, then it must be good.

As if the movie wasn’t good enough, the previews contained teaser trailers for the upcoming James Bond movie “The Quantum of Solace” and the new Terminator movie which stars Chirstian Bale.
