Dark Knight, White Knight and the Joker
After being in the theatre about 1 hr and 20 mins longer because some projectionist tool dropped the reel (go digital damn it! The reel got screwed up in last summers Spidey 3 also)- the Dark Knight returned. I really enjoyed the moral questions posed by the Joker, and Two Face, and Batman. The steadiness of Gary Oldham as Jim Gordon, Maggie's strong turn as Rachel, and loved the Cillian cameo as Scarecrow!
Heath was a great Joker, wallowing in madness and violence, but not just a bruiser. I didn't love the Two-Face skull burned off look, but thought Eckhart's part was important to show how Batman wanted to hand off the reins. I've been a big fan of director Christopher Nolan since Memento, and think he pushed a great cast here.
And the Watchmen extended preview was groovy!
Saw Mamma Mia with J, my chiquitita and enjoyed that in a singing, dancing, laughing way.
Some articles that interested me recently--
Watchmen motion comic (think of it as a graphic novel treated to the Ken Burns effect, with bits of animation added in, and a voice over to top it all off.)
YACB looks forward to is the King-Size Spider-Man Summer Special, by the Banana Sunday team of Paul Tobin & Colleen Coover...and makes me interested in it too!
Could Comic-Con leave San Diego? as the event has exploded in popularity over the past decade, organizers have found it increasingly hard to ignore the logistical limitations presented by wrangling more than 125,000 attendees into the San Diego Convention Center, where the show is booked through 2012.
