"The Dark Knight"

Liz and I got to see this movie on Saturday.

Wow.

I don't think the picture is worthy of winning a Best Picture, but it's definitely a great, great movie. Heath Ledger deserves an Oscar though. He was amazing - it was kind of sad to watch him, though, because he'll never be on the big screen again, and his version of the Joker was twisted and intelligent at the same time. What really threw me was Two-Face...holy shit, he was frightening. I won't give anything away but I'm amazed they kept a PG-13 rating with him. It's brutal. It's also a testament to how far CGI is these days. There's no way they could've done his face with makeup, and the effect was seamless.

Definitely worth spending the money to see.
