Batman TDK: not quite a review


I'm a bit conflicted.
I'm not quite sure how I felt about it. Maybe I need to let it sink in, or maybe I need to see it again.
So many twists and turns. So many, in fact, that I started to feel dizzy after a while...
And I knew how long it would be, but I didn't anticipate how long it would feel.
I did enjoy it, but...hmmm.

The only thing I'm sure about is that Heath really was amazing. Absolutely impeccable. He made it entirely worth the time and money. The best (and worst?) part of it is that I'm positive I would feel that way regardless of whether he was still with us or not.

Oh, and nurse!Joker made my world. Fantastic.

I loved it. I LOVED it. I thought it had just enough action to outdo Batman Begins.

The Joker is going to give me nightmares forever.

Or more like KNIGHTmares HAHAHA am i right?!?!?!?

There were a lot of parts that I enjoyed a lot, and other parts that just seemed to weigh the story down. I'm not an action junkie, though, so I suppose I'm not the target audience.

I have a huge urge to dress like the Joker and scare some children. Delicious.

I had basically the same reaction as you.. I'm not really sure what to think...

I loved all the bits with the Joker (Heath was amazing) but I was sort of bored with the non-Joker scenes. Like, to the point of wanting a nap.

I felt it was sort of like information overload.
I mean, I wish I could have loved it the way other people did. Oh well, maybe it'll be better if I see it again knowing what to expect.

I still cannot get over it.
But my little Joker/Heath orgasm over at my lj was a bit on the angry side. Because yea, it still hurts that he's not with us anymore.

It's hard thinking about what could have been. I was just blown away by the potential I could see in him. Not that it wasn't there before, but I think it really crystallized in this role.
And then reality comes back and the excitement doesn't have anywhere to go.
It was a hell of a performance to go out on.

That's exactly why it's so freaking hard to watch! Your statement says it all PERFECTLY and it's exactly how I feel. But you know what also gets me? I read recently that Nolan didn't have the chance to show him what he did. He was only able to show him the first 6 minutes of the heist.
I am sorry but I still have not accepted that he's gone. It's been hard accepting that reality.
