"Why So Serious??" ;)

Last Thursday I went to see The Dark Knight, the movie I've been anticipating for months. Ever since Heath Ledger Died & all the drama that came with the tragic loss, I had only one thing in my mind. I had to see the movie.

I'm not a huge Batman fan, so I don't normally go all gaga about it, but whenever a fave actor of mine is in it, for example Jim Carrey in batman Forever, I have to see it.

I liked the movie, the story was cool & all that, & the action scenes were as cool as ever, but I gotta say I didn't like the Batman. I mean, not because Christian Bale was playing him, but seriously he almost had no real role in this film! I find that strange. I mean he's the hero, he better deserve better than this, doesn't he? But the rest of the cast like Morgan Freeman, & Michael Caine were delightful. they added the sense of "cuteness" to the movie. Not to forget the performances of Maggie Gyllenhaal & Aaron Eckhart. I really loved the Two-Face thing!!

However, the man of the hour, the most favorable of the whole cast, the character most Batman fans loved I presume (I know I did, yet I wouldn't call myself a fan) is The Joker, played by Heath Ledger, who died last January of an accidental drug over dose, had totally nailed it! This was his best performance ever.

His psychopathic personality is what makes Heath's performance so worth watching. He played it so well; audiences can find it really hard to see the real personality of Heath ledger. You can totally see all the time & effort he put into it with pure genuine dedication. That is called "Great" acting. I absolutely adore actors like this.

I loved his insane laughs, him saying "Why so serious?" every other minute, & his purple tailored outfit - I always thought of purple a color that suits villains! Let’s not forget the make up!!! SO beautifully done! I think it’s the best Joker makeup ever done, (you can search for past joker roles, the makeup is nothing like this time). How he changed his voice to this irritatingly amazing voice of a true villain! Even that IRRITATING thing he does with his mouth every second is catchy! LOL

Perfect Performance. Absolutely ADORED it.

I sincerely recommend it to anyone who still haven't seen it, Go Watch it! You will have a great time, if you do appreciate good acting. Note that the Dark Knight is a sequel to Batman Begins, but if you haven't seen that, it’s totally ok, because I haven’t & the movie was ok to me.
