'The Dark Knight'

Olea and I just saw 'The Dark Knight' and I was very skeptical because of all of the hype around Heath Ledger's death. I thought, as many probably do that have not seen the movie, that all of the hype was in honor of Heath. I have to say that this movie is one of the best movies I have EVER seen. Heath Ledger's performance was riveting. All hype aside. His work on this movie is an Oscar MUST! Not only was Heath's work amazing but the whole experience was something to remember. The story line keeps you guessing. The characters' voice was clearly defined. This has got to be an archetypal movie of our time. I wanted to cry at the end because this was the death of not only Heath but of Batman himself. No one in there right mind would make another Batman movie. It would be like someone trying to remake diVinci's 'Mona Lisa', or Michelangelo's 'David'. It should never be touched again. It is a work of art, a thing of beauty. If you have not seen this movie, or don't have plans to see it, change you plans immediately and go watch this movie.


PS thank you Olea for letting me post on your blog. I love you!

I loved Batman Begins, and had every reason to believe that this movie would be more gritty Batman goodness. I've intentionally avoided the hype (like I do reality TV) so as not to be jaded. I can't wait to see it!
