The very Dark Knight

Man, am I far behind. I've got lots to blog about, but first I'm gonna write about what we did last night. Tracie and I finally joined the rest of America and saw "The Dark Knight."

It was "wow." Probably one of the best movies I've ever seen. (I said one of, not the best) But let me go over just a few things I loved about it.

The movie was incredible and a good movie on so many levels. It was great as an action movie, as a superhero movie, as a psychological thriller, as a philosophical piece, and others. The acting of the entire cast was superb. When your cast includes Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, Heath Ledger and others, it's hard not to rock.

Heath Ledger as Joker = the best villain ever. Hands down. The role Heath Ledger might have died for was certainly the greatest part of the movie, whether or not his death had an impact on my viewing of the movie, it certainly made me sad that such a genius died so prematurely. He was incredible, adding a human element to the psychotic embodiment of evil.

Well, I want to blog more, but my nephew wants to go play legos, so I better join him. :)

Yeah, totally creepy though huh? There were parts I just could not watch. Heath Ledger was awesome and I love Bale. Who doesn't love Bale?

Everyone kept saying that the movie was dark. In what way? Dark as in an evil feeling? Dark in that there wasn't much light to the screen? I liked the movie. I did think that Heath played the part of Joker unbelievably. He was good. You wanted to hate him. I think that Bale is the best Batman. This show is definitely not for kids.
