After all of the anticipation, The Dark Knight FINALLY came out and was (as expected) incrediiiible. I am really looking forward to seeing it again on IMAX while not being seated in the second row and at a time when my contacts are not flipping around in my eyes.
Heath Ledger really did an incredible job as the Joker. The entire beginning of the movie, however, it was just making me really sad to watch him... but aside from that, the Joker didn't sound like him, look like him, or have his mannerisms in any way. Seriously an incredible performance and after watching it, it really becomes clear why Jack Nicholson had 'warned him' about taking on such a dark and disturbing role. I think the creepiest/best part was watching how Heath was walking and carrying himself toward the end of the movie when he was walking away from the hospital.
The one thing I could not stand in the movie (as predicted) was Maggie Gyllenhaal's face. Okay I really sound like the biggest asshole ever but while watching her enormous head so close up (uhhh second row remember), I pinpointed everything about her that bothers me.
So, take note of the circled area. #1 - the nose, looks like it is molded from clay. #2 - the droopy eyes (and terrible job at trying to conceal any type of bags) remind me of a Pound Puppy and that is in no way a good thing. #3 - I am not sure what that thing is called that I drew the arrow to (the little slit type thing from nose to lips) but hers is WAY too defined and thin and really creepy. And WHO in their right mind would ever believe Christian Bale would want anything to do with this... thing... ever?!?!
Now that THAT is out of my system, I would like to point out that the two seconds I got of this man made me very happy:
