Anyway, I have a lot of problems with this movie. I didn't love it by any means.

But Ledger was beyond brilliant. Yes, give him the Oscar. I don't need to see all the fall/winter movies to decide. He gave two Oscar worthy performances in his lifetime, in my opinion. Give it to him.






uh, what's coming up this fall that will make this sound dumb?

Exactly the type of attitude that makes the Oscars a complete joke.

Did you read the fine print? I knew it was ridiculous when I said it and thus said it in jest.

I did. And I didn't really intend that to be a quip at you so much as a general comment towards that attitude that really does exist among people, and apparently among certain Academy voters.

I'm not so sure. I think it applies to both. Joker knew killing Rachel and letting Dent live would make his fragile mind snap and complete his so-called descent into madness.

'Madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little...push.'

Here's the scene: YouTube - The Dark Knight - Two Face dies (supposedly)

I was thinking some more about this series and where it should go from here.

What I want to see in the next film is a really deep exploration of this conflict between Gordon and Batman that is set up greatly at the end of this film. Batman is public enemy #1 now, and it's Gordon's responsibility to bring him to justice. Now, obviously we'll have to introduce some sort of villain in the next Batman flick (more thoughts on that later) to continue to reap havoc on Gotham, and Batman will be needed to bring him (or her) to justice along with Gordon's own efforts.

I'm sure we'll continue to see more cooperation between Gordon and Batman on the down low only now it will be an extremely dangerous balance between their mutual respect and Gordon's outward public obligation to capture him. I believe there's a lot of juicy drama to be found in that relationship and I hope it's the primary thread of the next film.

As for villains, I'm not sure. I suppose they could bring back Two-Face, but I'm not sure I think it's a good idea given the implications of this film. I think it might be the right time for Catwoman again though. Bruce's love interest is gone, and it might be time for him to become invested in another woman (shhh... it's really Catwoman). I thought that thread was the strongest part of Batman Returns and I'd love to see Nolan's take. Also, there's room there for a really great parallel between Wayne's relationship with Catwoman and Batman's relationship with Gordon, one of intimacy (Wayne and Selina / Batman and Gordon in private) and one in the outside world (Batman and Catwoman / Batman and Gotham Crime Unit).

Thoughts?

I think its moronic that you find it necessary to write "(more on that later)" in a two paragraph post.

I'm not a mathematician, but, it sort of looks like his post had more than two paragraphs.

It should have only been two paragraphs. I was commenting on the version that I had already edited in my head.

Dalton = pwned by math.

And also, I hate no idea how long my rant would continue before I started talking about villains at the moment I typed that. Turns out it wasn't very long.

Top three places I'd least like to be:

1) Detroit, MI

2) Houston, TX

3) In Dalton's head

If you had a nickel for every time you've pondered that theme ...

I am upset because you missed my inclusion of the TomKat theater into a "quote" from you.
