    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I don't know what to make of this one. The hype is has been overwhelming, but other than Ledger's performance, every review I have read has been pretty brutal. Any comparison's from people who have seen it? Is it okay for kids? Just how cynical is it?:

    Is there some unwritten rule somewhere that every negative review of TDK has to come out of New York?

    Pay no heed to the critics. The first two reviews linked seem to lament TDK because it isn't the '89 Burton flick/Joker, while the third review rips the film because Nolan isn't Hitchcock.

    If you listen to critics exclusively to form your opinions, you'll miss out on a lot of great movies. Including this one.

    Btw, I saw this again last night, this time at IMAX. If you haven't seen it at IMAX yet, I highly recommend doing so. The ariel shots are amazing on the IMAX screen. It almost makes you feel like you're on a helicopter or roller coaster.

    Also, I thought there was supposed to be some tribute/dedication to Hedger after the movie, but in both showings I've attended, there was nothing.

    not to mention, those guys are in the VAST minority of critics about this movie. Go to Rotten Tomatoes and click on some of those reviews (although I warn you, some may have a little or a lot of spoilers). At the very least notice just now many are positive, and how many glowing comments many of them have.

    Go to rotten tomatoes where it has one hundred and some positive reviews and only like ten negatives.


    I may go see it again tonight. I don't know yet. I definetely want to see it again this weekend though.

    Maybe they're hurt because Nolan chose Chicago as Gotham instead of filming it in NY?

    If you're familiar at all with Chicago, you will definitely notice some landmarks. Especially stuff on Whacker Drive.

    There were definitely a lot of places I recognized. I'm definitely going to go see this again Monday/Tuesday. I can't wait. That was mezmorizing.

    I saw a 3PM showing.

    I was just left saying, "Wow."

    As it turns out, I unfortunately knew way too many spoilers going in, which distracted me from enjoying the movie (too busy thinking about what SHOULD happen next based on what I knew, and not enough on what was happening in front of me). There's a LOT of stuff that if I didn't know about it going in, I would have left with my head in the clouds.

    THANKFULLY, the very, very end wasn't spoiled for me, so I still had one great shock.
    Spoiler Spoiler:
    .

    The more I reflected on the movie the next hour after seeing it, the more impressed I became, and the more strongly I wanted to see it again.

    I had an opportunity to turn right back around and see the 6PM showing, but opted out as I needed time to reflect, which ultimately I'm glad I did.

    This is a great film.

    Oh, and:

    Wow.

    Just wow.

    Not going to bother commenting on it, too lazy to add in the spoiler.

    Just loved it. I will be seeing it at least 2 more times.

    What ends up being in the spoiler tags may be long, it may be rambling, or it might be short and sweet, but please stick with me to the end. I might make some sense.

    I went to se it on IMAX yesterday and it blew me away - it is without a doubt worth the 12.50 to see it on IMAX. It was noticeable to me when the IMAX kicked in, not only did the picture get more vivid and much larger but most of the best scenes were in IMAX. My favorite scene - the part that strted in the underground part - was all in IMAX.

    OK, if you can't or don't want to go to an IMAX, then please go see it at a digital theater. - Which to my knowlege is only available at Rave in Plainfeild, in Castlton and at the new IMAX Hamilton theater - digital is much better than regular - (then of course IMAX is much better than digital) I felt so spoiled now.

    Let me say a few things about the movie itself - hate to do this, but I want to start with the only negative thing. I read one review that said something to the effect thatit seemed as though every scene was a climax scene. You might be saying well that was what made it incredible - I agree. But for my taste there wasn't enough bult up, enough susense, enough anticipation. (I often feel that way about most movies however, so maybe it is just me.

    Having said that - I still loved it. Can't describe my favorite scenes without giving too much away. But any scene that the joker was in was was incredible. He stole every scene he was in, he stole the movie, and his acting was s good as I have ever seen - and there are a large number of great actors in this movie.

    Go see it in IMAX, you won't regret it. Or at least see it on a digital screen that makes a big difference

    Truly amazing, thats what this movie is. I saw it last night and was first in line for the 9 oclock showing mainly because me and my friends were too late for the 8 oclock showing and decided to stay at the theater with nothing better to do.

    Seriously, I cant thing of one thing they could have improved in this movie. The action, the storyline(probably the best part of this movie), the acting, just WOW. I want to go see it again. I dont think there are any IMAX theaters here though which is unfortunate.
