The Really Dark Knight.

The bf and I saw the new Batman yesterday.
and it was fantastic.
I was on edge for the better part of the movie
because so much is happening.

I felt like the Harvey Dent story
played out as a better version
of the latest Star Wars installment,
with Dent as Anakin Skywalker.
You watch this man change from hero
to villain and it is just heartbreaking.

Things get darker as Heath Ledger
shows up as the Joker. A true
example of just how talented he was,
he made this character very believable,
grotesque, and even funny at times.

They have such a great cast for this movie
it's almost mind blowing.
And I am so glad they replaced Katie Holmes
with Maggie Gyllenhal, not just because I adore her
but also because she is a wonderful actress
and actually gave life to Rachel Dawes.

This installment was more action than story,
and oddly enough it ended without a hint toward
the next who knows what will happen
if they make a third.

If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it.
