As much as I realize posts like this are going to be a dime a dozen in the next 24 hours, I can’t allow myself to not talk about this. As you probably already realize, I’m talking of course about The Dark Knight, normally I would be tempted to summarize and give a brief description, but fuck that, and don’t worry, no spoilers.

Going into this movie, my expectations were sky high, and I honestly didn’t expect them to be met; as I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to movies like this. But I can honestly say this movie blew me away, and I left the theatre feeling completely satisfied. This movie is definitely among the best movies I have ever seen, I had no idea a movie of this genre could deliver on that level, but it did.

First off, the movie itself was gorgeous, every scene was shot beautifully. I really enjoyed the lack of CGI, I think that made the movie so much more believable. Watching the action sequences from The Dark Knight in comparison to something like Wanted, and its an easy choice to make. The plot was flawless, I was nervous that it might be predictable, much like other superhero/comic book/action/whatever movies are, but it wasn’t. I thought the movie was long, but that wasn’t a negative because I absolutely loved every minute. The acting was spectacular, every role was well casted and extremely well done. I am convinced that Heath Ledger should get an Oscar nod, not just because of his untimely passing but because he really deserves it.

I’m so happy a movie like this was made, because its going to make an obscene amount of money. I hope this will show Hollywood what a movie can be if you invest the money and the right people. Hats off to everyone involved in production of this film because its absolutely incredible.

I know this is poorly written, and I don’t intend on proof reading, but its three in the morning and I’m still collecting my thoughts, so whatever.

Go see the movie.
