Yeah, Maggie Gyllenhaal looks like a sad cartoon turtle, as my friends at WWTDD.com have said.
When I said that “I told you so,” I was more talking to the “Brokeback Dick’s gonna be the Joker?” kind of people, of which there were many. All I was saying is that I felt vindicated after the movie for defending his acting ability. When he’s leaving the hospital — that was fucking priceless. God, what potential, and now we’ll never know.
I actually liked that they spent more time focusing on everyone else than Batman/Bruce Wayne. I felt like Begins was his story, and Dark Knight was really Harvey’s.
I could frickin’ talk about this movie for hours. I love it so much, as Batman’s always been my favorite character. And I agree with you about Iron Man vs. Dark Knight — they’re both really good, but Iron Man’s definitely easier to stomach over and over. Dark Knight could just make you an emo after too many viewings. I just can’t get over how great it is!
