Movies: The Dark Knight


At the London Premiere... It's all about camera phones...

Thursday night I crammed into a hot, sweaty cinema to watch the new Batman movie The Dark Knight. There is something about this dark, unrelenting film that people just wanna see. Perhaps it hits the mood of the times, even when it is so bright and hot outside.

The Dark Knight was worth the discomfort of The Ritzy to see it, and probably one of the better comic book adaptations. It doesn't keep up the momentum to the end, and there is a sequence about the good of the people of Gotham that will have you want to yell out, "WTF???" But its visuals and Heath Ledger's performance are good enough reasons to see it. My only question would be, why does Batman speak like Patty or Selma Bouvier? I am waiting for the cigarette tie-in...
