The Dark Knight

My Thoughts:

-    This is a fantastic movie!!  Again, it wasn't entirely accurate, but they captured the essence of Batman!

-    I like how they showed Batman wannabes.  There would really be guys like that.  

-    I hate that they switched actresses for Rachel.  Not that I'm a Katie Holmes fan, but I just hate seeing a different face and having to think it's the same character.  

-    I love Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent.  He was awesome!  I can't decide if he is a good looking fella or not. 

-    Maggie Gyllenhaal looks old.

-    The Joker was fabulous!!  I couldn't even recognize that it was Heath Ledger!!  Why wasn't he playing bad guys from the beginning of his career?  It is a tragedy that he died before we could see him play more awesome roles.

-    Every move Joker made was a total surprise to me!  I didn't see some things coming.  It was crazy!

-    Someone finally understands Batman and who he is!!  His whole existence is based on revenge.  He could easily slip into the dark and become no better than the joker, but it's compassion and good people like Alfred who keep him on track!  

-    The story was awesome!  The acting was great!  The cast was amazing!  The action was intense and thrilling!  This movie was so good!

Tyson's Thoughts:

-    If I ever own a company,, I want Morgan Freeman to run it.

-    (during the fundraiser) That is how I'd crash a party if I could crash a party.

-    It was good...Batman good...It was no Adam West, but it was good.

Hubby's Thought:

-    Rachel looks like she is a good looking old lady.

Series Info:

This is the 2nd movie in the Batman trilogy.  Click on the cover below for my thoughts on the first movie.


  1. My biggest complaint with this film was the switch for Rachel too. I hated Maggie Gyllenhaal in this film. I liked Katie a lot better, but I think it's because Katie started out as Rachel. I wonder what I would've thought if Maggie had started out as Rachel.

    And, I also thought Heath Ledger did a fantastic job! Not only did he not look like him, but he also didn't sound like him. It was crazy!

  2. What exactly do you mean when you say "accurate?" Do you mean following the story of the original comics?

    I agree about the switch in actresses. That was weird. I also agree about the whole Heath Ledger thing. LOVE him. BUT, I do think that he made a nice GOOD guy too! Still, this Joker? Wow!!

    Is The Dark Knight Rises coming up soon on your list? I've been anxious to re-watch that, but haven't managed to yet.

    1. By accurate I mean following the comic books. In the comics, Joker's hair was permanently green and his skin permanently white cause he fell into some chemicals. I think Harvey Dent was a split personality as well.

      Yes, The Dark Knight Rises is coming! We bought the trilogy pack, so we've been watching them in order. I still haven't seen the last one yet!! I'm excited!
