As many of you know, I am a movie fan, especially sci-fi and action, you know, guy stuff. So it comes as no surprise that above all other movies I’m looking forward to Batman: The Dark Knight. That’s the one this summer that I’ve been pinning my hopes on being the best flick of the summer, and it’s still a few weeks away and we’ve got reviews started to come in and they’re doing nothing to make me any less pumped up.
You’ll remember way back when in the late 80s when they first launched Batman, with Michael Keaton as Bruce/Bats, it was Jack Nicholson that everyone talked about. His over-the-top antics at The Joker had the world raving. Basically, though, if you look back, it was Jack playing Jack with a purple suit and green hair. Nearly 20 years later, you watch that movie and it’s a bit under-whelming. It’s not bad, but it isn’t the be all to end all. It’s campy and fun, sort of like the old TV show. It holds up okay, but it doesn’t compare to Batman Begins.
But now we’ve got TDK to look forward to, and apparently Heath Ledger steals the show in his final big movie appearance. Check out this story and you’ll see why I’m so pumped up. Apparently Heath owns The Joker. It’ll be interesting to hear what Nicholson has to say.
That’s it for today. Be back tomorrow, probably with a little Pearl Jam review.
