The Dark Knight is unlike any other movie. I am pretty sure it is the best produced movie that i've ever seen!!! I don't think its my FAVORITE movie, just because it's not in my interests, but as far as best filmed and produced, it definitely gets my reward.
To be completely honest, I usually fall asleep in movie theaters. Yes, even action packed movies. I have fallen asleep in Spiderman and even Harry Potter. I went to the late night show at the Imax - 10:20pm. I was really tired before I went, and since I didn't even care about the movie, I thought for sure I would doze off..... but man, theres NO WAY. As soon as the movie got going, I lost all feelings of sleepiness. It just kept me going. The funny thing is, my friend who dragged me to it FELL ASLEEP. But hey, i'll give it to him, because he just got back from South Africa THAT MORNING and then went straight to a full day of work! It was kind of funny though.
ANYWAYS, back to the movie. SO CAPTURING, so POWERFUL!!! And the Joker!!! Man, everytime the Joker came on the screen, I just couldn't stop thinking about Heath Ledger. He did such a FANTASTIC job, it was CHILLING. Seriously, I got the chills at times!
long story short, YOU NEED TO GO SEE THIS MOVIE. I don't care who you are. You HAVE TO.
