Archives For Dark Knight

The Dark Knight opened this past weekend with almost every show here selling out. My wife and I got a much needed date night and actually caught it. What says romance more than watching a physcho on the big screen.

I have been a huge Comic Book fan since the beginning of time. And even more so a huge Batman fan. Batman Begins as far as I’m concerned was the “only” batman that existed in movies. Then Nolan comes out with the dark knight.

Originally I heard Mark Hammell (skywalker) was going to be the joker. He was the voice of the joker in the cartoon. Then heath ledger came in. At first I was thinking “are you kidding? Huh?” then I started seeing pics of him and I was blown away.

He was absolutly insane, amazing, mind blowing and perfect for this role. He was and forever will be the joker. I sure hope they don’t try to bring him in another film and replace him with another actor because anything else will fall flat. I think the joker should die with the actor.

Christian bale has been a favorite of mine since “swing kids”. The man is brilliant and he is the best batman ever. He gets a little bit of the Detective Comics version in him this time and I loved it. I would have liked to have seen a little more from Batman though.

Gary Oldman (from Immortal Beloved) really shines in this film. That man can act awesome. Everything was perfect in this film except Maggie Gyllenhaal, who replaced katie Holmes. I actually liked homes and I think Maggie Gyllenhaal was not pretty enough. There is no way batman would fall for a normal looking girl. I also just didn’t think she was very believable.

Was it long? YES. Did it feel like it? NO WAY.  I loved every minute of this movie.

6 out of 5 stars from me.

Here are a few movies that are being made that I absolutely can’t wait for.

1. Dark Knight – Coming this summer. Batman with Christian Bale. There is no other Batman.

2. Indiana Jones – We have been waiting forever it seems. I can’t wait much longer

3. G.I. Joe – this one is for 2009, but great cast so far. Baroness is Sienna Miller. Nuff said.

4.  Justice League of America – This one is for 2010 and they are lining up the cast. This should be awesome

5. Watchmen – This is probably the most anticipated movie for me in the history of movies. Coming out 2009. This movie has been in rumors for like 10 years now and it has been almost made a million times. This is the greatest comic ever written and it should be awesome.

Anybody else excited about these?
