I loved it! Things to love about the Dark Knight:

1. The Joker, obviously... Yes, he deviates from the way the Joker is portrayed in the comic by his grungy looks. But a true-to-the-comics Joker wouldn't have fit into this kind of movie. In the comics, the Joker's real face is clown-coloured, because he was mutated. And that works in the comic, because comic-book Batman lives in a universe where this kind of weird s**t happens all the time. But the movie is set in a more realistic universe (I don't say realistic, just more realistic...), so the clown-face has to be make-up. And the make-up gets more and more messed-up the longer it has been worn, which is how make-up actually behaves. You can see he looks a little better again in a scene where you could have expected him to patch up on the paint since last we saw him.
And he's truly credible as a guy who's dangerous because there are no limits to what he could do, and he doesn't play by the same rules as the rest of us. And that has always been the most important thing about the Joker, which is captured great.

2. It's great that the Joker doesn't get any "origin" that explains him. It's always so stupid where some pop-psychological cliché s**t is pulled out in a movie or a book to explain a truly weird psychopath of a character...

3. There's this issue about how far it's reasonable to go in fighting terrorism, if it's okay to become as bad oneself in an attempt to keep up... And I love the whole thing with Batman going all Big Brother and spying on everyone in an attempt to find this one terrorist, and Lucius objecting.

4. SPOILER:
Spoilers!

5. All the cast was good... And Rachel's problems of making up her mind about which guy to choose were credible. Not like, say, Mary Jane in Spiderman 2. MJ basically goes "Okay Peter, since you're always late for dates I'll punish myself for your behaviour by picking some random guy who I don't really love and spend the rest of my life with him!". I mean, that's not the behaviour of a sane adult woman, she's being completely psychotic. With Rachel you can understand her qualms. And I love that she has the ability to keep her head cool in all situations and is portrayed as far braver than the average person... otherwise she'd just look extremely helpless beside the big brave men. Like Kim Basinger's horrible Vicki Vale in the first Tim Burton movie, who just screams and screams till your ears start to bleed.

So I'll have to agree with this site's review! It was a great movie!

Plus I'm not even annoyed by the "bat-voice"... If he's really gonna disguise his voice when talking to people who knows Bruce Wayne, growling out the sentences like a death metal singer with a cold is probably the best way. And then I guess it just became a habit over time, so now he automatically speaks like that whenever the suit is on.

The bat voice is only bad when he has to say long sentences. It's super effective when he's grabbing people and going "SWEAR TO ME".

The Joker would've killed them all, anyway. It didn't matter which boat clicked first.

My idea for an exchange of dialogue in the new Batman movie!

Batman: Tonight the good guys are gonna win.

Joker: Don't ya know Batman!? Nice guys ALWAYS finish last!

Batman: ... I never said I was nice!

FIN.

Yeah, either I was missing something or that was a big continuity fuckup.

Maybe that's this film's version the joker playing card from Begins. One of the victims turns out to be none other than *dun dun dun* Solomon Grundy!!!!



Honestly I didn't notice that mistake. Hopefully it is intentional and has good ramifications in number 3

i just assumed my inability to keep details in my head like that and assumed there was some side action/insinuation i missed.
pub bartender?

aside: prisoners dilemma solved when people who ratted each other out would be known as a rat and promptly outcast/killed.
it'd have been interesting to see if a ferry full of people would be blamed for killing a bunch of prisoners when all was said and done or if the stick would be passed to the joker

either way i thought they were totally going to blow themselves up. that probably would have been what happened if it hadnt been so close to the end of the movie, actually. but batman had to have his sppech about people not being as depraved as he is. whatever. batman voice sucks with long sentences. all that labored breathing makes it clear how super hokey it is.

I don't think that anyone was supposed to remember that cop. Also, there was another cop there that I assume the Joker killed, because his absence is what sent Cop #2 in the building to begin with.
