All this talk of "incredible," "Oscar," and other crazy amounts of praise are setting it up for a fall.

Maybe I'm wrong. I hope I'm wrong. I hope it's a great movie.


I can imagine the hype would take away from the cinematic experience, but the way The Joker was portrayed was simply epic. Anyone who is disappointed with Heath Ledger's job is either stupid or an overly-analytical-and-elitist douche. I promise you won't be disappointed with that.

Dude...The Joker came out swinging with the magic trick. Caught me by surprise for sure.

Is it wrong that the Joker was my favorite character?

Also: was it weird for anyone else watching him when he recently died?

I give it an 8.5/10. Very good, but there were a couple of parts that just didn't sit right for me. I would still like to go see it again though.

I absolutely loved that movie. When they had Harvey Dent in this one I thought they were setting him up for being 2 face in the next movie, but then they surprised me and had him in this one. That was actually a long movie, but it didn't seem that long while watching it. Ya I have to agree that the Joker was by far my favorite charachter in this movie and ya that magic trick completely caught me by surprise.

I never got into Batman, but I think I might have to see if since everyone says its so good.

Is it hard to follow at all if you haven't really seen many of the previous movies?

I was kind of disappointed. The movie was absolutely fantastic. I loved it, but I was really disappointed they got rid of scarecrow AND two face in the same movie.

Instead, they made the mistake of leaving joker alive, giving the opportunity for a joker sequel in the future. Two face and scare crow were both incredible villains in the cartoons and comic books. The fact that they got rid of both of them didn't settle well with me.

I think the only way they have to go now is to have Rachael or whatever her name was become catwoman. They can spin it like she blew up, but as she was dying there some cats go and do their thing to her, and she becomes catwoman. Then somehow she can release scarecrow.

I don't know...I was just bummed at how easily some of the greatest villains of all time were taken out.

My wife and I went to see it tonight.....paid $18 to get in. We sit down, and I swear, not a minute later my pager vibrates, and instead of watching the movie, We spent the last 4 hours hiking in the pitch black Catskill mountains on a search and rescue call.

Luckily, One of the guys that works at the theater on on our fire department, so hes going to call the owner tomorrow and try to get us in tomorrow, or at least refund our money.

I read the first two sentences of that and I hate you now.

absolutely amazing.
Saw it last night, good lord, he doesn't deserve the oscar for dying, his performance was mind blowing.  It didn't occur to me until halfway through that it was Ledger, and that kind of sent a spine tingler, but damn. 
I'm blown away.

It really was a great movie.  Never a dull moment.  It was amazing how the Joker was portrayed and I loved the modern "Pg-13" spin on the movie.  Not to mention, Alfred has to be the most badass butler ever.

It kills me how a movie based off of a children's comic book and tv show could be so brutal...  But I'm definitely not complaining.

Imagine how brutal it could have been if it were rated R? I loved the bank manager's reaction to being robbed. That was a great magic trick, I figured out what it was going to be about a split second before it happened, I guess that means I'm a twisted SOB. Ledger's Joker was great, now I'm pissed he died, he would have been a great addition to the series, especially now that they've painted themselves into a corner by killing everyone. Two-Face might have been a bit much for PG-13, and the 8-year old who sat next to me parroting all of the joker's lines and miming machine-gunning the audience for the whole movie made me fear for the future of our society.

I don't think two face died. Come on, they are smarter than that. I bet
next movie, they can't find his body. And that catwoman idea would be
cool. But, in the comic books/other movies, batman doesn't have a
personal connection with catwoman. Atleast I don't remember.

I watched Batman Forever the day after seeing Dark Knight.
Wow, we've come a long way.

Also, anyone else laughing at Dark Knight being voted #1 on the imdb top 250?
