The Dark Knight

I went to see this with Nate and his family (yes, an actual date, woo-hoo! Sorry, off-topic...) It was a pretty decent movie, but definitely one that kids should not see. Way too violent. Like Tarah, I was looking down/away for quite a bit of the movie. Even though they didn't actually show any gory stuff, it was still too violent for my tastes.
The Joker was a very disturbing character. I didn't even realize til half-way through the movie that he was played by Heath Ledger.
If you haven't seen the previous Batman movie (I don't remember what it's called, I haven't seen it yet) then some scenes will be a bit confusing to you.

I have read that Heath, himself, was very disturbed by what it was doing to him playing the Joker in this movie.

That's very interesting considering what happened to Heath.

I'm not planning on seeing the movie. I like feel good shows--this doesn't sound like that type.

I finally saw this recently and thought it was pretty cool. Except for the fact that I thought it was over at one point and there was still another hour to go! The Joker was definitely an evil character but I guess I didn't mind it as much since it contributed so much to the future of Batman. I'm a dork.

The Joker was freaky in this movie, and Batman had a silly voice that made me laugh whenever he talked :) It was dark, scary and kind of evil. But cool, in the Batman way.
