Batman

Last night I went up to Dolphin Mall’s Cobb Theater to catch The Dark Knight.  It was a very good movie, but I am struggling to understand how it received enough votes on a reputable site to make it the #1 rated movie of all time.  The acting was great from all parties.  Bale, Ledger, and Oldman were excellently cast, with Ledger’s Joker stealing the show.  It was dark (The Dark Knight).  I can’t exactly say it was a happy movie, and there is no way a child should watch this movie.  There are a few portions of the movie where you have to totally suspend reality to enjoy the film.  But that is understandable with a comic book super hero movie. One of the things that made it a very good movie, was the way it turned the movie on its head, making you love and hate characters at the same time.  The audience was both horrified and humored by the Joker.  I would go see it again, but I would not say that it is one of the greatest movies ever made.
