It's 3 AM. I cannot believe I used to wake up this early to go to WORK. I must have been crazy.
Speaking of crazy....The Dark Knight.
I, of course, must begin by speaking of the dearly departed Heath Ledger, who as you all know, was a permanent filling on my Top 5.
I knew he'd be good. I read the reviews. The Oscar predictions. Saw the previews.
I had no idea. None. No one will have any idea until they see it. I have never seen such a transformation. One of the best villains of all time, seriously. Not because he's gone, but because he was an amazing actor. He turned The Joker from Jack Nicholson's creey darkness into a real, true madman. It was the performance of a lifetime, literally. They will never be able to find someone to replace him. Good luck.
The movie flew by, for those worried about the time (2 1/2 hours...2.50 with previews and all). Christian Bale, another permanent spot in my Top 5, is so freakin hot I can't stand it. He's the perfect Batman and the perfect Bruce Wayne, and no actor has ever been able to accomplish that.
Speaking of, THEY SHOWED THE PREVIEW FOR TERMINATOR! It was very short, as they're filming now, and it's not out until Summer '09, but the reaction was awesome. I squealed. So didn't expect that, wow.
Anyway, that's all I will say as I don't want to give anything away, but now I'm going to go back to the archives and read about the LAST movie I posted about as excitedly as I am right now...it was Batman Begins. This franchise...I tell ya...wow. Brilliant.
The theatre I went to was completely sold out, EIGHT theatres worth, and people were there since like noon.
Who else saw it?
