the dark kinigit

finally saw the dark knight today in the company of batman himself.

brief notes and comments:

  • it is looooooooooooooooooooooooong
  • props to the casting director for making batmanuel the mayor
  • heath ledger did a pretty excellent job aping mark hamill's joker laugh
  • opening bank robbery scene was perfect
  • the joker was in fact funny, despite what your average movie critic says
  • the joker is probably the greatest villain in the history of villains—even better than hitler
  • jack nicholson who?
  • it is looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong
  • christian bale's batman-y voice is kinda silly
  • in as many ways as batman begins was poorly orchestrated, the dark knight was ridiculously well orchestrated
  • too much bat-motorcycle
  • thank you nolan brothers for getting the batman-joker relationship right
  • the watchmen preview looked awesome despite the fact that it neverevernever should ever have been made into a movie
  • holy fucking hell: the joker!

quit your not complaining

Mostly quiet on the western front. I have a couple of interviews lined up. Who knows what the future holds... I mean besides the Shadow. Clearly.
