My friend called, and this is indeed the case. Huzzah, etc.

Whoo hoo hoo, TDK is so fun on the IMAX screen! I really enjoyed seeing it again, more than I did the second time I saw it - I think waiting longer to see it helped. The second time I saw it, it was just a few days after opening night, but that was over a week ago.

Still sold out at our IMAX theater, and this audience seemed more into it than last time I saw it there. And my friend really dug it - this was the first time he'd seen it.

You know what's stuck in my head?

The scene where the videotape of the kidnapped wannabe Batman with the Joker. Specifically when he yells "Look at me!!!". Freaks me out.

The guy's corpse hitting the side of the building is what did it for me.

Well, that precedes the televising of the video tape....the whole thing creeped me out.

Fake Batman hitting the window made me jump each of the three times I've seen it. You'd think I'd learn eventually.

The "look at me" was awesome - menacing, much?

He does that with Rachel in the penthouse, too, briefly.

My favorite Joker moments were in the kitchen scene:

Guy says: "Are you gonna just take half of our money"
Joker says: "...yeah"

Guy says: "You're crazy."
Joker says: "I'm not crazy... I'm not-uh."

I fucking love all of the little character choices Ledger made... it made the entire experience more of a pleasure to watch.

I thought this was cool, even if it's not the best thing ever produced:

YouTube - Joker vs Joker (Jack Nicholson vs Heath Ledger)

There's just something about Ledger's Joker that you just can't get enough of

So let's say that hypothetically, I might want to maybe possibly check out some of the Batman graphic novels. Like the darker stuff - I have heard tell of Frank Millers "The Dark Knight" series (?) and then the whole "Year One" thing.

Would I start with The Dark Knight and THEN Year One? Or vice versa? And is there anything else I need to check out?

From what I understand it's pretty much the "comic book" stuff of ages past and then the more recent "darker" graphic novel stuff.

Help, plz.

I would start with Year One, just because it's...the beginning. Then I would check out Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, which sounds like a sequel but isn't. It's just about a retired Batman, and it's one of the best comics ever (I would avoid Miller's actual sequel The Dark Knight Strikes Again, as it's not really on the same level of quality). Then I would say Alan Moore's The Killing Joke, which is a fantastic one focusing on Batman's relationship with The Joker. And written by the guy who wrote WATCHMEN, which I'll recommend for the 1,000th time.

Thanks, buddy, pal, ol' friend.

I will admit to being curious about Watchmen as well.

The coworker I went to see TDK with the other night said he has first edition copies of The Dark Knight graphic novels and thinks they might be worth something.

I told him not to worry, I wouldn't ask to borrow them, lest I need to handle them with kitchen tongs and rubber gloves.

Edit: Wow, they're pretty inexpensive. I would have thought they would be those graphic novels that go for like $24.95 a pop or something. Sweet.
