I just got back from a midnight screening of The Dark Night, and I loved it, Heath Ledger played the role of The Joker perfectly, but the overall performance was really good too, of course.

Anyone else see it or planning on seeing it?

oh yeah! Lucky geek. We were tempted to go to the midnight show, but I have a dang life thing today I have to attend to, so that put a damper on it.

Definitely going in the next few days or so.

I already seen it in midnight showing. it was a wild and crowdy night. It has been sold out 10 showtimes in that night. Imagine a line that is going to be. Crazy!

yeah, I'd never found the idea of going to a movie in the middle of the night that tempting, up until yesterday. [Razz]

I saw it Sunday at a 3:40 showing because I expected the theater to be relatively empty. It was packed. This is one sequel that was definitely better than the original. Everybody played their parts perfectly. I can't imagine what the next movie will do to top this one. If you go, don't bother sticking around after the credits because there is nothing extra to see.

They're talking about the movie in rot13 (there are lots of converters online, including javascript rot13 converters that can work as bookmarklets in firefox). This way, people like me who aren't seeing the flick until this weekend don't have anything given away by inadvertantly clicking on the thread. Very decent of them, really.

I have to tell you guys that I kinda feel like I am in one of those chinese nail salons where you get a pedicure, and you just know they are talking about you as they are painting your toesies. Just sayin'.

You know, it just occurred to me. The Dark Knight set an opening weekend record, but only a few of us are discussing it. Are you telling me there are no other geeks - comic book or otherwise - on this board that have seen The Dark Knight yet? I'm stunned.

that's a good point, I would have expected a ton of people here at GC to have seen it.

I saw it, and absolutely adored it!

I also strongly believe that Heath Ledger's performance deserves at least an Oscar nod, if not the Oscar itself. He was brilliant!
