The Dark Knight
Last night Philip and I were able to go see this summer's predicted mega blockbuster "The Dark Knight". I believe I read this morning that "The Dark Knight" set a one-day box office record with $66.4 million on opening day. It opened on Friday and if you have the opportunity to go, we both recommend this movie to everyone. I must admit the Joker was very intimidating and scary, but what a performance by the late Heath Ledger. He did a phenomenal job and in our opinion, should receive a Oscar for his accurate manic portrayal of the Joker. Christian Bale also did a phenomenal job as Batman and even though Philip is tired of hearing me say it, Christian Bale is hot! There were tons of twists and turns in the movie that we didn't expect, but none the less, it was a great movie! There was more violence in this one than in the first (Batman Begins) and in our opinion could have almost gotten a "R" rating. I has a PG-13 rating, but certain fighting and violence scenes were pushing that. The ending of the movie was left wide open for a third, but who knows if it will happen or not. Anyway, here are a few clips from "The Dark Knight".
