    The Batman Begins Blu-ray has The Dark Knight Prologue. It's definitely worth a watch to get you fired up heading to the theatre.

    I'm going to a midnight showing . . . and I never do stuff like that.

    I just got home from a sneak of TDK.

    First, let me preface my spoiler-free review by saying that I wasn't nearly as big of a fan of Batman Begins as many of you are. I still enjoyed it; enough to buy it on Blu-Ray, in fact. But I still debated whether it was actually the best Batman movie of all time. I'm pretty partial to the 1989 Tim Burton flick.

    Well, the debate is over. The Dark Knight is, in fact, the best Batman movie ever made.

    To be honest, though, I was a bit worried during the first hour or so. It felt like the progression was a little slower than I wanted it to be while the main characters were fleshed out. Once it got to the good stuff, though...man, was it good stuff.

    I never thought anyone would top Jack Nicholson as the Joker. Well, it has happened. And it makes the tragedy of Heath Ledger even harder to swallow. He was absolutely amazing in this movie. And the further the movie progressed, the more you realized just how intelligent and dangerous the Joker really is. He's definitely no joke in this movie.

    Two-Face looks fantastic. Best rendition of the character ever. Maybe a bit more extreme than some people will expect, but I liked it. A lot.

    If there was any doubt at all, go see this movie. I can't wait to see it again tomorrow.

    Shade's rating: 9 out of 10

    Ugh, 9AM? Isn't that a bit early for a movie?

    I'm not sure I could enjoy movies in the morning

    Its Noblesville UB. If you take 146th St. from Carmel it will take you all the way there. Thats where I'm going at midnight. They told me they are expecting to start forming lines at 9PM.

    Do you think lines will start forming at all theatres at 9PM? I wasn't planning on going until 11:30...

    I'm not getting there until 10:30 anyways. The woman I talked to said doors for the actual movie would open half an hour to 45 minutes before hand.

    9:00 AM is fine - with me, I'll be fresh and wide awake.

    You can order tickets online, that is what we did

    I'm not in a position go tonight, if I could, but I will go ASAP tomorrow. Just depends on when the depositions are over (which unfortunately I have no idea about until I show up at 10AM).

    The law firm I'm working at in NY rented an entire theater to play this movie for their employees - BEFORE MIDNIGHT. And what am I doing? That's right, I'm working way past midnight.

    Guess I'll see it when I get my life back next week.

    Holy ****.

    That may be one of the greatest movies ever. I don't think I've been that much on edge at a movie. Wow.

    Awesome. Very dark (no pun intended).

    Aside from the obvious comic book elements, it didn't feel like a "comic book movie" at all. It was definitely the most psychological, emotionally-charged "super hero movie" I've ever seen.

    Shade, I'll see your "best Batman movie ever," and raise you "best super hero/comic book movie ever." Seriously. I think this raises the bar for the genre to such a high level. A level that will be seemingly impossible to top, even for the eventual third Batman movie.

    I'm gushing right now, obviously. But I'm also tired and I need to go to bed.

    I don't know if I've ever walked out of a theatre with that many emotions.
    I was happy that it lived up the hype, and surpassed it.
    I am tired, but pleased that it forced me to pay attention the whole time no matter what.
    Heath Ledger's performance was nothing short of mesmerizing. Every moment he was on screen he demanded attention, and you wanted to give it to him. It is a damn shame he is no longer with us. We lost an amazing young actor with his passing.
    I don't what else to say at this point. All the regulars are amazing as well (Caine, Freeman, Bale etc.) Eckhart plays a very solid Harvey Dent. I'll give a longer review tomorrow complete with my thoughts on some of the plot points, but I'm spent right now. I really can't say enough about Ledger's performance. Its amazing, and you really have to see it to believe it.

    Heath Ledger made this one a classic. Was an incredible movie, probably one of the best I've seen in a while.

    Q: Me and my family are planning to catch it today when they visit. Should I head somewhere and grab tickets right now? Will it likely be sold out most everywhere?

    Ledger was sooo good in this movie it was almost frightening. I almost found myself rooting for him at times; and every time he wasn't on screen I was waiting for him to re-appear.

    The comparisons of his character to Hannibal Lecter, Vader, etc. as an unforgettable villain are justified.

    I would pay the $9 again right now to go and just watch the scenes with him in it. . . . every other character was good, but Ledger made the movie.
