The Dark Knight

The Dark KnightI just returned home from seeing The Dark Knight (IMDB) at the Xinedome here in Ulm together with Lisa and Christian. It had it’s lenghts, but overall it was a really good movie with Christian Bale as Batman, Heath Ledger as Joker (sensational and a shame he ended his life. A really great actor.), Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, my alltime favourite Gary Oldman as James Gordon and some more top actors. I also believe this is the best work of Hans Zimmer I’ve ever heard. The distracted sounds during the Joker’s scenes are so…weird. Compared to the old Batman movies with Joker I think both stand on the same level but show a completely different Batman and Joker. We’ve seen the movie in the orignal english version and I believe this was a good choice because the german voices I’ve seen in the trailers suck bigtime. This movie clearly deserves 8.5 out of 10.

Oh…not to forget…the Oscar for the “Best Warmup-Raclette Performance” before cinema goooooooooooeeeeeeees to Lisaaaaaaaaaaa!!

You also should have a look at the comparison of the trailers of the goold old Batman movie and The Dark Knight trailer. Seems they wanted to do a kind of to the old movie:
