Soge shirts review: The Dark Knight

This was the kind of movie where the nerds walking in to the theaters dressed in joker costumes transform into the coolest guys walking out of the theater. The kind of movie that makes 11 dollar tickets and 7 dollar popcorn seem like a bargain. The type of movie that will inspire someone from the future to build a time machine and stop Heath Ledger from mixing his pills, so he can give more haunting, mesmerizing performances. The type of movie that allows us to escape reality, while at the same time be conscientious of the harsh realities we face in this day and age. The movie that converts fanboys into fanmen. The type of movie that forces Spiderman, The Hulk, Iron Man, and Superman to question their superhero credentials and retire before they embarrass themselves.

This is The Dark Knight a film of such epic proportions that seeing it once isn't enough to process all the tension, force, and subtlety of its brilliance. Compelling bad guys, heroic good guys, choices with consequences, and people in peril whose lives are on the line. See this movie and you will remember what its like to breathe after being buried underground, fly after losing your pilots license, or what its like to make unreasonably ridiculous life comparisons like I just made. Just see it. You won't be disappointed.

Not giving away a thing about the film, are you? Probably wise.

I have noticed, by the way, that anyone who says anything the least bit negative in a forum where quotes are allowed just gets hammered.

So, it's either a great movie or society has gone nuts.

Straight-shooting real estate

Good review. Almost went to go see it last night at midnight. Decided not to. Regreting that decision now. I'll be checking it out this weekend!

This looks like it is going to be a huge blockbuster! You make it sound as great as it looks.

I was blown away by it. I'm glad you didn't put any spoilers in your review. Nice!

I'm supposed to see it this weekend.

Everything you wrote mirrors what the other Batman geeks like us have been telling me all day.

You know I'm dying to see it!!!!

Thanks Tim

I'm not usually a huge fan of the Batman franchise, but this movie sounds really intriguing (I'm interested in the why and how of the Joker character becoming what he did--can you tell I was a psychology major?!) Thanks for the review.

This isn't my type of movie, but, after reading your review, I want to see it anyway!

HEALTH NUT WANNABEE MOM said...

wow! This sounds like something else! I had not planned on seeing it but after a review like this how can I not? Thanks!

Eve Grey said...

I CANNOT wait! Must make plans now.

Sue said...

Wow cool Tim! Sound great. I'm not a big fan of any of the other Batman movies but this one does look good. And you're description is great! Too bad Heath Ledger "mixed his pills" they say he might even be nominated for an Oscar for this! I definitely want to see this.

Christy said...

I'm thinking I'll go and it will replace the workout that I never do; all that adrenaline I'm imagining :) Thanks for the review.
