First midnight showing, ever, for me. I can't wait. Besides the trailer, I haven't seen any clips of it, because I honestly don't want any spoilers.

Anyone else seeing it Friday? In imax maybe? (that'd be cool) Very Happy

Not quite so at $25 per ticket, but after seeing I Am Legnd there, along with the 6 minute opening to TDK, I'm sure I won't soon forget it.
Though it does still sadden me deeply that Heath Ledger is no longer with us, I'm sure his last film will be his best. I also hope that he can bag that Oscar he might be nominated for.

I'm going to the midnight showing as well. Although I planned on buying the tickets online, movietickets.com has pulled the option for the advance screening. Looks like I have to go to the cinema before work Thursday night, buy the tickets, head to work, leave work when I'm done, head home, change, go to Batman pre-party, and then TDK!

I won't be seeing it opening day, unlike all of you. Mostly because it's insane to try to go on opening day, and cause I'm not a HUGE batman fan. I plan to see it sometime next week though, with a special someone Wink

According to all the reviews I have read, Ledger is supposed to put Nicholson to shame. Many of the reviews say he might even get an Oscar Nomination which would be a nice end to his filming to career.

MINOR SPOILERS:This movie is supposed to extremely dark so I would advise(All the reviews I have read, emphasize this) not to bring your 9 year olds with you unless they wouldn't mind a few graphic scenes like a kid their age being held at gunpoint, the Joker shoving a pencil into a guys head, or Two Face's facial features. I myself can't wait for this! I hear it is the best comic book adaptation of all time! Batman fans everywhere will see if that is the case this Friday. Until then, Lego "Holy Black Stretchy Tights, Batman!" Apple

I actually like that it is suppost to be more dark and graphic. Gives Batman that dark edge that he should have. Not any of that almost cartoony like older movies. (which I can't not say I am a fan of most of the older batman movies)

I like it as well. I makes it easier to take seriously and it makes it a little more believable in a way.

I'm planning to see it the day before that at super special pre-screenings (seems to be the same price even at Imax though).

Spiderman, Hulk, Iron Man and all you other superheroes eat your hearts out. The Dark Knight is in town.

Just got back from the midnight showing of the Dark Knight, and it was superb. Go out and watch it. Now.

Heath Ledger is so gonna win the Oscar for best actor.

To the batmobile! (and bed) It's 3:19 Razz

Wouldn't he be best supporting actor? Bale is still the headliner even though the attention is on Ledger.

There might be some minor spoilers in this post.

The movie was great, the people in the theater, not so much. They laughed at the most disgusting parts, and the people next to, and behind me, were talking through out.

A little too much evil, between Two Face and Joker. It became a little overwhelming. And by the way, the Joker was the scariest thing I've seen on screen. Ever. Being in the front row didn't help I guess (didn't have much of a choice though, they were the only seats left).
I really wish (and thought) they should've saved Two Face for the third film. His creation was done very, very well, but after that, he seemed a bit forced, and rushed. I think he needed his own film, to explore his character.

I also think this would've been a good film for Batman to have understood that by killing one man (the Joker) he could've saved dozens of people from dying.
Once he saw how the Joker was just pure evil, he should've ended it. I understand his rule, and why he has it, I just think this should've been an exception.

Another problem was that the film moved along so quick, and they put so much into it, it was almost like a flashing internet ad, everything went by so quick, I wish they had cut out Two Face (not Dent though), and slowed it down a bit, like in Batman Begins.

Can't wait to see it on DVD, and enjoy it to the fullest. Smile

And yes, it is Scarecrow in the van. Wink

Some mild spoilers possible in this post

I think that is meant to tie into what Gordon spoke of in the finale to Begins. Escalation. The mob is bad. Psychos willing to destory everything around them for laughs are worse. Weakening the mob creates a power vacuum in the underworld. Someone like the Joker steps in to fill it because he is the type of person that can get to Batman and the people of Gotham in ways the mob never could. The mob simply were too much into "planning". Batman turned that plan upside down. The Joker thought one good turn deserves another being someone who is not much into "planning".

Also, these movies seem to be going with something resembling realism. These characters, if made real, wouldn't be funny. They would be monsters. Batman is supposed to be the best in what people can put their abilites towards. The Joker is the other end of the scale showing how people can take what they have and use it for pure evil. Two Face is the other side to Batman's origin. He is a look at what Bruce could have been if he had given in to his temptation to take revenge (as he almost did). Their evil is the unstoppable force to the immovable object that is Batman's good. (reference to a line in the movie, great line by the way with foreshadowing)

Though I agree with this principal in theory (and in some real world situations), it doesn't fit the character. Intentionally killing and simply not saving someone aren't the same thing (though it is a dangerously fine line). If he kills the Joker, the Joker wins. It proves his point that people are capable of anything when they are pressed to the wall, societal rules be damned. That's why he constantly targets Batman. He is the one man that seemingly won't break. He is the exception to the Joker's percieved rule (everyone is one bad day away from being just like the Joker). If Batman did break and kill him, the Joker would die a happy man knowing that he broke the unbreakable. So, while the idea might work and some would agree with it, others would see that it really goes against Batman's character (at least, post gun wielding Batman's character anyway). At the end of the day he still has to look at himself in the mirror.

Went to a midnight showing myself, and the movie is incredible. Equally worth hype is the trailers for 'The Spirit (Trailer 2)' and 'Watchmen' which were before the movie. Definitely, DEFINITELY search YouTube for both and watch them, they're pretty amazing.

Spoiler Question:Can anyone describe how Two-Face looked? I mean, I know that is kinda geeky but, I just want to know if he is disappointing and sorta cheesy or if his facial features were pulled off well. Thanks-

I have a question. If they decide on making a third movie in the series, who do you think will be the villain in it? A lot of people I know say the Riddler, and that would be cool, but I think Killer Croc would be awesome. Or Man-Bat.

I would assume, since Harvey is in it, that the next villain would be Two-Face.

Another reason why they should've waited on Two Face, no one could've healed that quick, his eye wouldn't still be functioning (if it was still there, it would be black, and burned, or at least a little red) and he would've been leaking healing juices everywhere.

They really should've waited on Two Face. (hence my previous comment, too much evil between them, they each deserved their own movie).

Besides that, and how uncomfortable watching the Joker was, it was a great film.

My Mom and sister however, said they won't been seeing it again, until right before the third film comes out. Hehe. Razz

I also went to the midnight showing. I think Harvey Dent/Two Face had the perfect storyline and amount of screen time. We saw everything we needed to realize how broken of a man Harvey had become after Rachel's death and how much the Joker was able to twist him. If they were to let him live in TDK and bring him on as the villain in the sequel, I think he, as a character, would be treading water. Anymore Two Face after TDK would just seem redundant IMO.
