The Dark Knight

Did anyone else see it? I thought it was a wonderful movie!!!! Heath Ledger's performance of The Joker was amazing.

I just saw this last weekend. It was a good movie but I have never seen the other Batman movies out there. Heath Ledger playing Joker really made the movie fabulous.

Maybe because I went there at a late showing or because I just ate dinner & that makes me more sleepy but I felt that this movie wasn't that great. Don't get me wrong, it was a good movie but I don't know about for all time. Maybe because we went in there with extremely high expectations hearing that this movie is passing up Godfather & Titanic on the top 250 list of all time movies.

I also like Maggie Gyllenhaal but I think they could of picked another girl for the role.

I'm probably going to watch it this weekend with flatmate. I have seen clips of the 'pencil trick' though ...

EDIT: I'd better remove the link as its a bit violent but go over to YouTube and type 'Dark Knight Pencil Trick' - the first one that comes up is good.

Without giving too much away, there's a massive fuss here about it's rating. In the UK it was given a 12A cert. This basically means anyone over 12 can see it on their own. But under 12s have to have an adult with them, but they are entitled to go.
It contains the afore mentioned pencil trick, some pretty horrific makeup from burns, and a fair amount of close up threats with knives. IMO it in no way should it have been classified a 12A. It certainly should have been a 15.

We saw 6 and 7 year olds going to that film Some did not look happy at all. I was wincing at some of it, and I'm no softy.

I think most people assumed it was going to be like the previous Batman films, which were ok. I over heard one lady say "what happened to Robin?" Obviously thought it was going to be like the wonderfully over the top camp TV seres

Having said all that, I thought it was a bit long, but overall a good film. The entire cast was simply out-acted by the talents of the late Mr Ledger.

I don't think this movie would be so huge if Heath Ledger hadn't died. I know how cynical that sounds, but there was certainly no "Oscar talk" about his performance until after he died, and filming had been completed for months. If there was no tragic death, I think this would just be another Batman movie.

I'm not too sure about that actually Marie. Maybe you have a point about the oscars, but he was certainly one of the best people in it.
