Ok, that was a really cheesy blog title but is anyone else sad that the new Batman isn’t called: “Batman: The Dark Knight” it’s just called “The Dark Knight”. That really is breaking some traditions…Batman, Batman Forever, Batman Returns, Batman and Robin, Batman Begins and then, “The Dark Knight”?
The name, though, was probably the only disappointment about this new flick. (Which really wasn’t a disappointment…I’m just being dramatic.) We went and saw it last night with some friends Josh works with. It was amazing!! A little too violent at times (don’t take your kids) and definitely a different mood and theme than any of the other Batmans. Looking at that dorky one with Jim Carey as the Riddler in comparrison to this one is like saying that Monte Python and Braveheart are in the same series. The acting was excellent, with the best job of course going to Heath Ledger. It was really good. Hope you have a chance to see it.
