The Dark Knight

On Friday, I saw the Knight. Better yet, I saw the light.
I went to the IMAX showing in New Roc City. Got there early enough to have excellent seats in the middle-center. There really isn't a good way to describe the movie because it will not do it justice, but I guess I will try.
I was truly blown away. Never has a movie that has been so hyped up, so talked about, so marketedly exposed lived up to all of it. It was 2.5 hours and I loved every minute of it. I can't wait to go see it again.
I believe the acting on everyone's part was amazing. Obviously, Heath Ledger stole the show but we all knew that going in to the movie. But he really just hit a grand slam. I found myself laughing at these horrible images of violence because of him. His facial expressions, that sucking thing he did with his tongue, the voice, everything was just so good. I think second after him was Aaron Eckhart. He had to convince everybody of his characters transformation and I think he got the job done. Plus, the make-up on him as two-face was amazing, wasn't it? After him came Bale's performance, which is consistently good and has been in all of his movies.
I know this movie is way over-hyped and there will be many haters that come out of the film (I can think of a few right now). But this is truly an epic film and will be remembered so for many, many years to come.

What did you all think of it?

I haven't had the pleasure of seeing it yet, but I hear nothing but good things from everyone who's seen it.
