Did anyone else see it? I thought it was a wonderful movie!!!! Heath Ledger's performance of The Joker was amazing.
"Just another Batman movie" still has incredible hype. Comic book (or action that resembles comic-style) movies are immensely popular right now, and this one was spot-on in every way. Great story, great characters, outstanding performances. It's rare that moviegoers are graced with two actors such as Christian Bale and Heath Ledger in the same film - actors who can fully inhabit a character, creating nuance, not just playing the same cookie-cutter thing over and over again.marie73 said: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.
The movie was outstanding, I was skeptic at first, I thought everyone's review were biased because of Heath's passing.. (don't flame me please!!) but HE was the movie, I'll be buying this movie on Blue Ray.Heather102180 said:Did anyone else see it? I thought it was a wonderful movie!!!!

Heck yeah he is a heck of an actor!Silver deer said:Also, Heath Ledger did an amazing performance for Brokeback Mountain, and he didn't die after that movie... In any case, whether or not Heath Ledger was in the Dark Knight, I think there's no contest between Batman Begins/the Dark Knight and previous Batman movies.
I agree with you!! There is nothing wrong with that, they want to honor his memory.marie73 said:You're all probably right. It was just a total coincidence that the Oscar buzz began the day after Heath died. But I still think that it's Heath fans that are making this movie the financial blockbuster it is, not just Batman fans. I'm not saying it's a bad thing at all, but it is what it is.
