The Dark Knight
I had to see it, and I didn't want to go alone. It's been out 2 weeks already, and Tinker wasn't interested in seeing it. But I did my please, please, please, number and he caved in. He didn't like it. I kept waiting for it to get better. Too dark, too much violence, and the constant foreboding that somebody else was going to go over to the dark side.
I was exhausted by the time it was over...Heath Ledger was impressive...truly psycho. I still prefer Jack Nicholson's portrayal of the Joker back in the 1989 Batman movie. He was menacing in the Jack Nicholson way.
At least I got to see Samuel L. Jackson. No, he wasn't in The Dark Knight. They showed the trailer of his next movie, The Spirit. I'll have to resurrect my Samuel L Jackson Hair Chart...lord only knows what he has on his head this time.
Oh yeah, I give The Dark Knight 2 stars.
