The Dark Knight

Just got home from a midnight showing of The Dark Knight.

Yes, it is that good.

Don't tease.

You know full well it is BETTER THAN THAT.

(Unable to sleep due to the astoundingly high quality of every performance in the film.)

(Yes, FILM. An action movie about a superhero has somehow managed to make it into High Art category.)

(And poor Heath Ledger couldn't help but off himself after a performance like that. Bipolar folks, especially in the acting biz, are rather susceptible to freaky vibrations.)

(Yes, I am the worst person on earth. My punishment is "up at quarter past five when should be in bed with hot Batman fan.")

Yeah, seeing a summer superhero flick that puts a serious serious serious Oscar contender into the ring (Heath Ledger) shouldn't be casually allowed to languish at the bottom of one's summer to-do list.

He really does lend the Joker a truly harrowing thirst for fear and violence that completely blows the roof of that character's traditional "scary clown" vibe and moves it into a realm of murdering, make-up wearing psycho on the loose.

That's not right, is it.

VERY jealous. Should have followed my instincts and bought tix two months ago. Saw MAMMA MIA!, instead. Yes, it's that...bad.

I saw it in theaters. I mustmustmust see it on IMAX now. As in right after I finished watching it in theaters.

I've seen this one several times, not as good as the first one but well worth the movie dollar.

I do hope they make a third
