Just got back from the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Batman flick, which knocked me on my ass. I’m a comic book nerd, and this could quite possibly be the best comic book flick I’ve ever seen, real talk.
All the hype around Heath Ledger’s final completed performance as the Joker is totally warranted, the man acted his ass off. I heard he locked himself in a hotel room with the lights off for months to get into character and develop the Joker’s voice and mannerisms. Bananas. The Joker’s an evil force of fucking nature in this movie, and you can’t take your eyes off him when he’s on screen. RIP Heath Ledger, you are a boss.
Aaron Eckhart comes out of nowhere also and nails the role of Harvey Dent.
On top of all that, we got to see the trailer for the Watchmen movie, which looks sick as hell. Watchmen is one of the most popular and celebrated graphic novel/comic book series of all time, and I’m a big fan of it. It looks like they really nailed the look and tone of the book.
Us comic book heads definitely have it good right now.
