The Dark Knight: Applause, please

If you’re reading this, you might have already read other reviews. You might have even watched the movie by now. And thus, you no doubt will agree with me, and all the other countless reviews, that this was one hell of a movie.

If you did not mourn Heath Ledger’s passing before, you will now. We’ve seen his talents previously here and there, but here, in this magnum opus of superhero movies, he shone brighter than a supernova.

Batman and The Joker

If The Joker here wasn’t one of the scariest comic book villains (or any villain from any genre, for that matter) you ever saw, you don’t know nothin’, mistah.

I want to write a longer review, but everything I want to say has already been said by countless reviewers out there.

The only thing left then, is for me to stand and applaud the collective creative genius of the team that put together this magnificent movie. Especially director Christopher Nolan, and of course, the late Heath Ledger.

Heath Ledger as The Joker

Verdict: 5.0

Eyeris is so excited he’s named this week Indiana Jones week. Ok……

At times like these, one must be frugal, and therefore when it comes to movies, I’m gonna pick and choose the movies I’m going to watch on the big screen. The rest can wait till they come to a pirate, err, I mean, satellite TV. (Unless if I find myself with too much time on my hands and with very little to do. Which, sad to say, is probably quite likely.)

I’ve already started my “summer” blockbuster season movie viewing last week, having watched Iron Man. Pretty good movie, that. I heartily recommend it.
