Batman Triumphant

And no, I don’t mean the scrapped movie by Joel Schumacher (have I mentioned just how much I dislike that guy?). I’m talking about The Dark Knight, which has to be the most powerful Batman movie to date.

And yes, Heath Ledger’s final performance as the Joker beats all the other Jokers to date. And no, I am not biased. I loved Nicholson, I think Hammil’s voice acting was impeccable. Ledger was just that powerful.

Watch this movie. Watch it. Don’t let it slip by. This is one of those films that will serve as a milestone for future films of the superhero genre.

    Should be watched and owned in ORIGINAL DVD (better yet, in Bluray)!

    I heard somewhere that according to over 90% of their weekend tickets were for The Dark Knight! The movie definitely broke some Internet ticket sale records, though I’m not sure about the actual stats.

    Since the opening of The Dark Knight, I’ve seen some older Batman movies floating around the TV. I like Tim Burton, but it’s amazing just how cartoonish all the other non-Christian Bale Batman films were. And just how unrealistic. Batman is a regular human, which is one of the things that draws me to him as a superhero, but none of his humanity was really explored. He was too perfect, too archetypal. Here’s to Chris Nolan!

    @ bluemango: i have to agree. nolan’s interpretation of the caped crusader (i can’t even call him that with a straight face) is so gritty and so humanised. i mean, i’ve been a fan of nolan’s films before, but the attempt to make a believable human being out of a super hero.

    the fact that TDK was wall-to-wall action didn’t hurt it, either.
