Tonight, my main activity was to see The Dark Knight in the Imax. I usually like to relax the night before playoffs, but this movie was not relaxing at all. In fact, next to Iron Man, it was the best action movie I have seen this summer. Seeing it in the IMAX was icing on the cake. In my opinion, if you haven’t seen this in the IMAX, then you haven’t seen this movie. Its worth every extra penny.
The show was sold out over a week ago. When we got to the theater 45 minutes before the show started, there was already a line to get in. All the shows in the IMAX were sold out through Sunday night. Thats just an incredible feat.
The movie moves at a blistering pace, and it could have went another hour. Thats just how good it was. Heath Ledgers performance as the Joker was unforgettable. Was it better than Jack Nicholson’s performance back in 1989? I say it was about even. Nicholson had the insane part down to a tee. Ledger was just as good. If I had to make a decision, its a tie.
Now, I will have to get some sleep before the playoffs begin tomorrow morning. Lets hope I can sleep.
