The Dark Knight..

Lets have a moment of silence now, clear our throats and on the count of three.. 1, 2, 3. SCCCCCCCCCRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEAAAM! WHATTA MOVIE! If you haven't seen it, jump off a cliff ten times and kill yourself!

I'm confused now. Who do i like more, Batman or the Joker. On the one hand, we have an unsung hero, someone who makes sacrifices, kicks some butt, annihilates evil and yet is hated and misunderstood by the people who he stands to protect, come what may. And on the other hand, we have a lunatic, who kills people for no reason, who just lives his life without a goal in particular. He just wants to piss Batman off and bring gloom to the city of Gotham by breaking their spirits, by killing their hopes for a good future.

The Dark Knight, is one of the most smartest, sleekest, nattiest, realistic superhero flicks' made in our times. The movie ends with the villain winning and the hero loosing. The Joker succeeds in driving a good man, out of his mind. He pushes him over the edge and makes him a villain. Whilst, Batman flees the scene like a criminal, although he did no harm.

More than the fight between good and evil, it was a movie that strongly underlined the choices we make. Sometimes the right choices have horrible consequences. But we can't shirk off those choices. We have a responsibility, to ourselves and to the people who believe in us.

Heath Ledger. Sir, i just have one word and one thought in my mind for you : RESPECT! You have changed the face of super villains. We love you! May your soul rest in peace.

I went to the movie this weekend. Was surprised to get tickets for Saturday evening show just 15 mins before the show. I went inside the theatre with my friends to find out there were exactly 23 people other than us. Still surprised.
The movie started. We walked out.
It was a dubbed in Hindi :(
Waiting for next weekend to watch the original.

GAAWWWDDD! I feel jealousy pouring green, through the pores on my skin. Hand been to a messy masala jinx last night and had shouted to the heavens a rhetoric asking God - 'Isn't there a single good new movie to watch?'.
Wish I had been at the dark knight's instead and hit the sack with that content grin of having spent a couple of hours watching something sensible.

The movie was superb in every aspect as it was the first ever time gotham was shot outside the sets! it is LA if im not wrong...

A colleuge of mine watched the movie and was clueless as to what was happening.. so i had to educate him about Batman and all his opponents...two face, Joker and what exactly is happening...

He was so happy... i was so proud..
been a batman fan ever since my first movie when I was 8 yrs old, where Michael Keaton is batman and two face is Jack Nicholson!
