Breaking More Records
"The Dark Knight" continues to set box office
records, grossing $300 million in just 10 days.
Warner Bros. says the epic Batman saga grossed
$75.6 million in its second weekend in theaters,
pushing its domestic total to $314,000,000.
"The Caped Crusader scales new heights - and
yes, Heath Ledger deserves an Oscar."
Geoff Berkshire, Chicago Tribune
"Christopher Nolan's powerful, disturbing Batman
sequel is fueled
by Heath Ledger's indelible Joker."
-- Kenneth Turan, LA Times
"...a pulp epic with mythic overtones..."
-- Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post
"I can only speak superlatives of Ledger, who
is mad-crazy-blazing brilliant as the Joker.
Ledger takes the role to the shadows.... No
plastic mask for Ledger; his face is caked with
moldy makeup that highlights the red scar
of a grin and the yellowing teeth of a hound fresh
out of hell, where a knife is preferable to
a gun, the better to "savor the moment."
-- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
I liked it.
Heath Ledger was as good as they say.
Yes, it was a little long and the plot wasn't air-tight. I don't know
why they always have
Batman fighting multiple villains - doesn't that detract from the Joker's
if they gotta worry about the other "villian," too? But still,
it was very exciting.
Maggie Gyllenhaal is a good actress, but hottie-wise, she's no
Shouldn't they add a little most lust for a "popcorn movie" like The
I liked that new Bat-Cycle, the one with the fat tires.
When I see a film like this, I wonder why other directors suck so much.
More than doing everything right, this director just failed to screw
In 1993 I took my first ride in my boss's new Lexus he'd been bragging
I thought it seemed OK, nothing too special, until the ride was over
and I got
back in my piece of shit Pontiac - THEN I realized how great that Lexus
The Dark Knight was like that for me - it left me wondering -
other directors and actors
claim they're in show business, so why can't they make as good
a movie as this one?
And how can inept losers like Will Farrel and Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler
faces on the streets of Hollywood after seeing a movie as good as The
It's like Farrel, Stiller and Sandler dismiss their audiences as tasteless
fools who will
accept any lazy-ass, unfunny and poorly-written shit they give them.
As far as I know, there wasn't one dog-bit-my penis joke in this
And I don't think Maggie Gyllenhaal found any bat-semen in her hair.
I also didn't notice any fart jokes - was this an American made
We can add Leno and Letterman to the whore-laziness of Farrel, Stiller
They're like Halliburton and KBR - they get paid hundreds of millions
and they don't even have to be funny - they just have to show
up and fake it.
So a shot of Chinaco for director Christopher Nolan, Christian
Bale and Heath Ledger
for giving us a
new kind of movie - a movie for people who appreciate
They could've been lazy, drunk-ass punks with no respect for their audience.
Instead, they worked hard and used their brains and gave us a good/great
In 2008, that's rare.
