BEST MOVIE THIS YEAR!!!
so far... (Say it like Homer Simpson.. ;P)
Okay, I could go on all day... =.=" XP
Okay, as usual,
Lemme sum things up for ya guys. ;)
1stly, the other movie which I was so frenzied over this year, Iron Man. (Remember THIS post? XP ... And THIS... and THIS too? XP)
One of the main points for me so totally loving that movie is the AWESOME TECHNOLOGY. COOL Technology.(Remember? =.=" XP)
Well, NOW, with TDK (The Dark Knight), sadly, I'll have to say: "Iron Man / Tony Stark, please step aside..." ... =.=" XP
Turning a phone into a sonar emitting device which can map out its 3D surroundings, applying it to a whole city, and then having it all accessible on your own headgear. That's way more than UBER COOL, it's even PLAUSIBLE! (well... MORE plausible than Iron Man at least.. =.=" XP)
It's even so
Just check THIS out! XP
Then, there's the UBER AWESOME action scenes as well.
Beats any other Superhero movie (loads of it this year), FLAT 99.
For those who haven't watched the movie (HOW CAN YOU!?!), the following is a
The whole thing with the Batpod being ejected from the main Batmobile itself,
TOTALLY UBER FREAKING COOL.
If the Tumbler Batmobile wasn't already cool enough, the Batpod is sure to sweep you off your feet. LITERALLY.
BEST OF ALL, IT's REAL!!
BOTH the Tumbler Batmobile and Batpod!!
Real as in the sense, they can both be really driven!!
They even took the Batmobile for a spin with F1!! =.=" XP
And check this out! I never knew that the Batpod is actually SHOULDER DRIVEN!!
HOW COOL IS THAT??! XP
Just look HERE and HERE and HERE for more information.
Got a lil overboard there... =.=" XP
And the trailer over-turning scene.
FRIGGIN AWESOME!!! XP
It literally had the whole cinema swearing... =.=" ... well, in the cinema I first watched it anyway... =.=" XP ...
(Yea yea... Blame it on being Time Square.. =.=")
Now, on to the next MAIN ATTRACTION.
The INFAMOUS JOKER.
Everybody's ranting how good Heath Ledger has portrayed this amazing villain.
I'd have to agree with all of them.
No words can describe how I feel about the Joker better than these.
With his cracked white pancake makeup, black-rimmed eyes, smeared lipstick and greasy, greenish-tinged hair, The Joker bears no resemblance to the strikingly handsome actor who played him. In fact, the character is like nothing we've seen or heard before.
Ledger has made this anarchic maniac a singular and supremely unhinged villain. From the clumsily repellant way he flips his tongue around to his sneering, nasal voice, he is a peerless eccentric.
made the Joker
I think there ain't a villain that has ever made such a HUMONGOUS effect on viewers and audiences. (So far... ...)
I'm keeping my hopes up that with this, I hope Ledger has set a high standard for future movies, film producers, directors and actors to aim for. Please don't let us down...
Though sad to say,
it's Ledger's last performance as well.
May his talent and legacy live on, in this last but OUTSTANDING performance.
Let's not just let Ledger take ALL of the credit for this AWESOME movie. (though he has already gained the VAST MAJORITY of it... =.=" XP)
Mr. Christian Bale (Batman / Bruce Wayne),
Aaron Eckhart (Harvey Dent / Two-Face),
Michael Caine (Alfred Pennyworth aka THE Butler),
Maggie Gyllenhaal (Rachel Dawes),
Gary Oldman (Lt. James Gordon) and
Morgan Freeman (Lucius Fox)
all did an AWESOME JOB in their roles.
(As a side note, I find Katie Holmes prettier. But that may just be me. XP Not saying Gyllenhaal ain't good though! In fact, I feel she added more DEPTH into the Rachel Dawes character. ;) )
And LAST BUT NOT LEAST.
What I LOVE about THE DARK KNIGHT MOST,
is its many life morals and meanings.
Mostly which can be very philosophical.
The one I totally LOVE MOST is:
I TOTALLY agree with it.
And the whole fact that Two-Face, the fallen Harvey Dent aka "The Hero of Gotham with a face", is a proof and manifestation of The Joker's message - how fragile and sinful we really are, despite our best efforts to be righteous and MORALLY good.
Thus, our need for GOD.
(Of course, Batman aka Bruce Wayne himself is also corruptible, just that, this is a MOVIE. And he's the main HERO! Let's cut him some slack! ;) XP)
My FINAL SUMMARY and VERDICT?
12 out of 10!
6 stars out of 5!!
EASILY one of the BEST MOVIES this few years.
(Of course, again, SO FAR... =.=" XP)
This movie is THAT AWESOME!!
Let that be known.
Don't take my word for it.
Just search and read others' reviews for yourself.
There are plenty online.
E.g.: THIS, THIS and THIS
Especially THIS. (Which I'm citing quite a lot in this post. :D XP)
Which I relate to and agree with ABSOLUTELY.
Totally crystallizes my feelings and thoughts. :)
What's a good movie without scornful,
They even went as far as to make a bullshit website such as THIS!
You want reality?
Go bang your head on the wall!
Everything is STRETCHED,
the reality, the metaphors,
but that what makes us INTERESTED,
that's what makes us ENGAGED,
makes us GIVE A DAMN.
THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT A GOOD MOVIE.
When was the last time you saw a blockbuster that was impeccably executed and simultaneously thought-provoking, audacious and unnerving while consistently being fun and entertaining?
The Dark Knight has all the requisite breathtaking explosiveness and suspenseful jolts.
On top of it all, it surprises the audience in more profound ways by busting up the genre and giving us a terrifying and humorous villain who will remain etched in our memories.
So, this is your FNB, k!ll3r @c3,
leaving you with more UBER AWESOME QUOTES from THE DARK KNIGHT. ;) XP
"Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight."- Lt. James Gordon
"Do you wanna know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little... emotions.
And.. you see.. in their last moments... people show you who they really are.
So, in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did.
Would you like to know which of them were cowards? "- The Joker
"The only sensible way to live in this world is without rules!"- The Joker
BUT, NOT RIGHT.
"See, I'm not a monster...
I'm just ahead of the curve. "- The Joker
"You'll see, I'll show you, that when the chips are down, these uh... civilized people, they'll eat each other. "- The Joker
"Sometimes, truth isn't good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded. "- Batman
"You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. "- Harvey Dent
"I believe, whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... STRANGER."- The Joker
"You thought we could be decent men at indecent times.
But you were wrong; the world is cruel, and the only morality in a cruel world is chance.
Fair. "- Two Face
"It's not about money...
It's about... sending a message.
Everything burns. "- The Joker
"Introduce a little anarchy.
Upset the established order and everything becomes chaos.
I'm an agent of chaos.
Oh, and you know the thing about chaos?
It's fair."- The Joker
Batman:"Why do you want to kill me?"
"Kill you? I don't want to kill you!
What would I do without you? Go back to ripping off mob dealers?
No, no, you... you... complete me."
And of course,
how can I leave out the ALREADY INFAMOUS line:
P.S: HERE's another nice blog review that I like, and relate to about this movie. ;)
