The Dark Knight

as i told you, i saw The Dark Knight on opening day. (i'm no liar, i tell you! when i say something, i mean it.) so did it meet my expectations? no it did not. it far exceeded them. folks, this movie is the best one of the year so far, in my opinion. i could be biased because the dark, moody, violent, and insane qualities displayed by the settings and characters greatly mirrored my own feelings as of late, but i was truly engaged from beginning to end. it was action packed. and it wasn't that CGI, cartoony type action. these exploding buildings, cars, etc. were the real deal. also, who couldn't like two and a half hours of Christian Bale? that dude is freakin' hot. his new Batsuit is super skin tight, and it leaves little to the imagination, ladies. as for Heath Ledger's Joker, i was worried all the hype would be because the poor douche bag bit it, but the Oscar buzz is warranted. he is amazing. there is no sense of Ledger on the screen. he is completely transformed into a maniacal, twisted villain. i found his lack of logic logical and very appealing. perhaps it suits my new 'i don't give a damn' attitude. either way, i highly recommend this film.
