The Dark Knight: This is my first ever movie review, so don't expect it to be enlightening. Also, may contain spoilers.
So overall it was a decent movie, probably a 7/10? Maybe 8/10 if I'm feeling really nice. But there were a few niggling details that really got to me. #1 being Batman's voice. Every time Christian Bale turned into Batman, he put on this husky affectation that made him sound more like a chain-smoking Louis Armstrong than a tough guy. Then there was the Batmobile, which could be more accurately renamed 'SUV-Mobile'. If Batman was so socially conscious, then why couldn't he have downsized that gas-guzzler into something a little more earth-friendly? Though I must admit, it was awesome when the Batmobile turned into a motorcycle. Someone else might not have even noticed these things that really irked me, but I did so they knock 2-3 points off the movie's overall score.
Predictably, the Joker was awesome in his custom-made purple suit. Heath was so convincing, that even when the Joker's makeup he was still completely in character. All criminals should dress up like the Insane Clown Posse, all the time. Oh yeah, and Aaron Eckhart and Maggie Gyllenhaal were hot. I loved when Harvey Dent had that whole 'Phantom of the Opera' thing going on and turned into a bad guy. That was great.
"Some men just want to watch the world burn" was probably the most memorable quote, coming from Alfred the Butler. Even thought the Dark Knight was pretty cool, I am still partial to the bumbling Adam West in the 1960s tv series/movie. Which reminds me, where the hell was Robin???
