The Dark Knight

  The boyfriend has been sent off to Germany today, but not before I made him take me to see The Dark Knight last night.  I was never a huge fan of Batman as a comic book while I was growing up. I preferred the team superhero dynamics within titles like Fantastic Four, Alpha Flight, The Avengers and of course, X-Men (such an awesome series during the Chris Claremont years!) and the other X-related books.  But I was a big fan of the Tim Burton Batman movies, and fell in love with it all over again with Batman Begins. Christian Bale makes an awesome Bruce Wayne… note that I said Bruce Wayne, instead of Batman.  In terms of Batman villains, The Dark Knight brought back such a wicked tradition with the characters in this film.  It was pure nerd fun.

It was a good ending to a busy week. I just had a lot of stuff going on for the past little while, and even though work may still be a little busy for me, I think at least I can come home when I can and just relax without having any other projects and stuff hanging over me.  I may add some Batman movies to my collection this week and just chill.

  1. I still haven’t decided if I like Bale as Batman. I’m certain I didn’t like him as Bruce. Hopefully I will get out this weekend to see the movie.

    Of course my main reason to go see it is The Joker. Not because of Ledger, but because The Joker is my favourite villain ever.

  2. If you didn’t like Christian Bale as Batman in the first movie (and sorry, I can’t agree with you about him as Batman, :D) , it’s doubtful you’ll like him in the second one. However, I found the interesting relationship between Batman and the villain(s) involved was probably the biggest reason why I enjoyed this movie so much. If you at least don’t want to see this movie for Christian Bale, you should at least see it for the Joker. :)
