It was stupefyingly good. Definitely one of the best movies I've seen in a while.

I didn't see it yet but I want to. Apparently CC and Shiro saw it on the same day and both loved it though.

I went to go see it, but it was sold out for yesterday and today, and I couldn't get in. I don't think I've seen the theaters here do that before....

I'm going to try again Monday.

Just watched it.
Gotta admit that The Joker stole every scene. It's a great movie overall =)

10/10. It was AWESOME. Heath Ledger was like the best joker ever!

He sure let his legacy go off with a bang...

Now that was an absoluit Fucking win. it gets a little slow in the middle but not enough to make you get off the edge of your seat.

The reason heath probably offed himself was because he couldent get out of character. He played the joker so well. But I did notice heeps of other big actors in the background like in the boat scene

The notion that Ledger committed suicide has been refuted by autopsy reports, for the record.

Fantastic movie. Couple of things annoyed me but no where near enough to sour the experience. Will definitely be picking both this and Batman Begins up on DVD when they're released.

FINALLY a Joker that is realized as....and now shows the general public...that "the Joker" isn't this lovable fun guy (even Jack Nicholson's take was a bit off in this regard).....he's a homicidal maniac dressed in Joker-clown makeup to scare people and emphasis his Chaos-philosophy (joker = wild card)

I'm going to see the thing on an IMAX screen in a week or so, so I will hold my "critiquing" back until I see it myself

you can put your potential SPOILER thing in quote brackets and color the font white and the only way people could read it would be to highlight the text in the quote box

I never read the comic but what caught my attention was the anti-gun Batman. Very unamerican. That scene on the sewer putting his hands on the trash and taking out guns. "Sir, gimme your hand"... "I can't". Best ending scene ev4r. I wonder when the right wing jocks will start demonizing this libtard batman, NRA piquets on theaters included.

far be it from me to correct long-standing American stereotypes.....but Batman is INFAMOUSLY Anti-Gun. They've been using him even in anti-gun comics and stuff for years.

"Anti-gun Batman in TDK"? You've been paying attention to Batman for the past....ever?
