I went to see The Dark Knight last night, This is the best movie of the year, I dont even need to see the rest of the movies this year to know that. This is the best superhero movie and its not close, but screw the term superhero movie this is so much more. This is a movie masterpiece on a level with my favorite movies ever.

I am keeping this spoiler free for now so don't be afraid to read. I don't know if a remember a movie that made me feel this uncomfortable, that filled me with such dread and dispair like this movie did. Forget horror movies, nothing is as evil, as unnerving as watching the Joker at work. I don't know if I have ever seen a depiction of a city at the brink of complete insanity as I did in this film. You watch as Batman and company just try to figure out what to do, its incredible.

Ledger will win an Oscar, if he doesn't it will be the biggest rob in Oscar history. To be fair though Heath Ledger was not in this movie. There was not one hint of him. What I saw was the Joker on screen. Not an actor, the Joker is real and they put him on screen, thats what I saw. To say its the best villain performance in comic book history is such an understatement, I dont think I can watch another superhero movie where the villain comes up with a dumb plot for world domination after watching this. This was freaky and captivating, this is a legendary villain performance.

God this movie was SO FREAKING AMAZING. i have not even talked about Aaron Eckart and his amazing role as Harvey Dent. This is Dent's movie as much as it is Batman's and Joker's and he makes the character stand as strong as those two. His arch his another masterfully told story. If there are to be complaints its probably going to come from the movie maybe being a bit too long but it did not bother me. Also the focus is not on Batman like it was in the last one, again did not bother me cause the cast was amazing and it does refocus on Batman by the end.

I can run down a list of great moments in this movie, I will do so later as more of you see it. GO SEE IT NOW!!

I might see this at the weekend. I'm a little skeptical, Batman begins had a fair amount of hype and it was just okay for me. I prefferred tim burtons films.
