The Dark Knight

Finally I went to see "The Dark Knight" with a few friends, into a new fancy movie teather with a gigantic screen and deafening sound. Oh boy, what a movie. Everyone was hypnotized by it. The pounding soundtrack was non-stop (well, it´s the same tracks from the previous Batman repeated over and over), lazy Hans Zimmer, sleeping on the keyboard again, and gosh, it was tense.

I was all smiles in the scene with Comissioner Gordon, Batman and Harvey Dent in the roof of a building, the same scene from the Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s “The Long Halloween” comic miniseries.

The scenes with the Joker telling his origin, everytime in a different way was a nod to Alan Moore´s "The Killing Joke" graphic novel ("If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!"), and Bruce Timm´s special "Mad Love", in which he made up a sob story to recruit Harley Quinn to be his aide.

It´s so sweet, so excessively good that I don´t feel like going to the teathers anymore this year. I waaas planning to see "Hellboy" and "The Mummy 3", but nah, nothing will ever come close. :) ´Nuff said.
