The Dark Knight

Last Thursday the boy and I went to see the much anticipated Dark Knight. I had high hopes for this movie, and it exceeded all my expectations. I got tears in my eyes from Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker. He was incredible, but it was bittersweet knowing he won’t be making any more films. Such a sad thing. He was an amazing, gifted actor and I hope that he gets the Oscar he deserved, even after death.
Even though Heath stole the show, Christian Bale did a great job revising his role as Batman. I like that he changes his voice every time he switches from playboy Bruce to the Dark Knight. I don’t remember the previous Batmen doing that and it helps hide his identity.
My only complaint about this movie was the choice in actresses for leading lady. Honestly, I hated that they chose Katie Holmes for the first movie, but Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel Dawes? Seriously? I’m not trying to be harsh here, but I just don’t think she’s pretty. And here are hunk of all hunks Christian Bale, not to mention Aaron Eckhart in his own handsome right, fighting over this Bassethound faced woman? I think she’s a good actress, but I do not think she’s beautiful, certainly not in the traditional comic book way.
Think back to the Batman Beauties, only focusing on the good movies (1 and 2, not the atrocities that were 3 and 4). There was Kim Bassinger and Michelle Pfieffer. Two classic beauties who know how to act. I just think it would have been a bit more believable to have Batman torn up over someone equal to their beauty. Besides that though this movie was excellent, and I really hope they make another.
