Ha! I should have figured ... the Imax theater in Seattle is sold out all week for the popular 7:00 show.

I might have to come up with a surprise doctor's appointment this week and leave work early enough to catch the 4:00 show.

I went back in time to look at when it was first announced that Ledger would be The Joker and checked the reactions on Interference.

Turns out, everyone either found it puzzling or hated it.

You are nothing if not THE HISTORIAN. I wonder if I found it puzzling, or if I hated it.

I did not see you comment.

Almost everyone was disappointed it wasn't Paul Bettany.

But reactions included, "I can't stand Heath Ledger," "," "this could be another Batman & Robin," and "what a complete CRAP choice."

Canadiens put it best: "Hopefully Ledger will surprise everyone..."

I think I was pretty intrigued/interested/hopeful with the news, though I haven't gone back to look at my post.


Just got back from the movie. Holy friggin' crap. I'll read through this thread tomorrow. Just wanted to say 'fuck yeah.'

I've only skimmed the last few pages so as to not be spoiled in case anything was there (generally there wasn't). I'll read the whole thread after I see the movie. I don't think I can wait much longer to see this! I'm sneaking out alone for a 9:30pm showing

It wasn't until Brokeback that I went back and watched Monster's Ball....I had seen Ledger in A Knight's Tale (With Bettany) and while I found that film mildly enjoyable, Ledger did not exactly blow me away. So, anyway, I think that when I heard that it was Ledger I was more intrigued than excited or disappointed, but I honestly do not 100% recall.

with all the hype and articles about TDK that has seemingly increased as the opening day approached i started feeling a little bit nervous, a bit cynical that the movie would not live up to the hype, or that it was going to be vastly overrated. All I can say is HOLY CRAP, it was like tiny holes being drilled in my brain with one of the best things I have ever seen in the big screen, yes Heath Ledger's Joker really does deserve every ounce of hype and more. He wasn't good, he was fucking amazing, it was entirely creepy and yet fascinating at once, completely despicable and charming.
It was one of those moments were you completely remove your mind from 'i am watching a movie' mentality cause you forget that it's not real. The entire movie was perfectly crafted and visually stunning, it felt heavy with darkness and intensity, if there was one word I would use to describe the film it would be : intense. I heard couple people complain that it was too long, I was so wrapped in the film that I lost sense of time. I would watch it again in a heartbeat.

Now THAT'S a cliffhanger.

I was one of those who piped up that it was too long, and I'd like to take that back. When I see the words "two and a half" hours, I say to myself, "Shit, that's a long movie." But to be honest, it didn't feel like two and a half hours.

Sex and the City was two and a half hours, and that was too long - it didn't need to be that long by any stretch of the imagination. This movie needed the full two and a half hours to tell what it needed to tell.

Who knows - maybe I felt like I had to say one negative thing about it, rest I start foaming at the mouth at how awesome it was.

Two and a half hours has never seemed long to me. Maybe I've just seen a lot of long movies. But I always feel like anything more than a few minutes under two hours is underwhelming.
