I want to see this so bad, I gotta convince the wifey for tonight. The reviews all giving The Dark Knight a thumbs up and even Rotten Tomatoes is giving this a 94%. I was pretty much sold when I saw the 6 minute trailer.

Real talk, I loved the first Batman with Jack Nicholson as Joker. We’ll see if Heath Ledger can live up to the Joker role.

  1. dude heath ledger puts jack nicholsons performance to shame… this is a totally differnt kind of joker he’s still funny but in a really sick demented “saw” kind of way…. but best movie i’ve seen so far this year hands down. <3 fresco

  2. Dark Knight was exactly as the name implied, it was dark. Probably the darkest superhero movie ever. Actually you could tell it took a lot of editing to get to PG-13. Great movie featuring a lot of talented actors, Heath Ledger will be missed.
