    Default The Official I can't ****ing wait for The Dark Knight Thread

    What the Soupy one wants, the Soupy one gets.


    I was thinking the other day, and I'm not sure I've ever been more excited to see a movie. I mean I ordered my tickets on June 22nd, and I'm glad I did now that midnight showings are filling up all over the place.

    I'm trying to temper my expectations. Everyone saying it's the best thing ever makes me feel I'll be disappointed. I've even avoided getting the Batman Begins blu-ray because I'm afraid I'll jinx myself and end up hating the new movie so much it'll ruin my love for the original (hello, Pirates of the Absurdly Long Title.)

    But yeah, besides all that I'm looking forward to it.



    [edit] And for the record, I will never be more excited about a movie than Return of the Jedi. Thankfully I was young enough that the Ewoks didn't ruin it for me.

    The Batman Begins Blu Ray is worth the money. Lots of cool features.

    I am excited but I can wait. I will either see it the following tuesday or whenever after that.

    It should be alright.

    Just wondering if you think it would be worth the extra money to see it on IMAX vs just at Castleton

    I've read from people who've already seen it in IMAX that say it's worth it.

    From what I've heard, the reviewers are saying if you aren't seeing it in IMAX you aren't seeing the full picture.

    I've never seen a Hollywood movie in IMAX before. I'm going to see TDK in a normal theater first, but I may try to make one of the repeat viewings at an IMAX.

    Well HIcks the whole movie isn't shot in IMAX so when its not using IMAX film the movie will take up a normal portion of the screen. There are six scenes in IMAX (four action, two dialogue), and they are the first six scenes in a major motion picture to be shot using the IMAX cameras.

    Have you guys watched the Roeper review? Says it should be nominated for Best Picture and that Heath should be nominated for Best Actor.

    P.S. I've only seen one review with any spoilers so far and it was a negative one in New York Magazine.

    Read any of the reviews on the rottentomatoes.com website (or almost any of them) and you get the same glowing reviews.


    Thanks Indy for the info on the IMAX scenes. If that is the case, then I'm just going to Castleton digital - that is good enough for me

    I'm avoiding reviews just to be safe. Also, I want to go into it with zero impressions.

    I watched Batman Begins for the first time Sunday night. Dang good movie. Looking forward to TDK.

    I didn't think it was possible, but some of the reviews I've seen/read today have me even more hyped to see this movie. I didn't think that was possible.

    Up until now, reviews had gotten me pretty damn excited, but I kept telling myself to cool it a little bit to not be disappointed. But now I'm reading from critics who are usually the ones to throw a little water on the flames, and THEY are going nuts over this movie.

    I hate that I have to work Friday; I so badly want to just go to the first showing Friday morning in Muncie. I guess it'll have to wait until that evening.

    Also, I bought the score to the movie today. I liked the Begins score, and this one is similar, but the new stuff makes it better IMO.

    Nice little video. Used the video from the Batman Forever soundtrack, but edited it with Michael Keaton clips.

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Duke,

    I think that's Seals actual video he made for the song Kiss from a Rose for the Batman Soundtrack.

    If you come across an About.com review by Jurgen Fauth or something like that DO NOT READ IT. He gives away a major spoiler, and I'm pissed I read it.

    Wow, now I'm even more exited about this movie.

    And about the Roeper review, I'm sure The Dark Knight deserves a nomination for best picture, but as a superhero movie, it won't get it.
    That'll do.

    I think it depends first and foremost on just how good it is, but also what else is going to be nominated. I never thought a fantasy movie would win, but Return of the King did. Of course, even then I think it only one to give the entire Trilogy recognition.

    I'm not holding my breath.

    Most of it is. A fan cut out most of the Batman Forever scenes and put it Keaton ones.

    The original video is also on YouTube:

    I'll be seeing it in either Greenwood or Lafayette with some friends Saturday night. As the week goes on, I've gotten even more excited. Can't wait to see it!
