    all in all, amazing.....i hope the darkness of Batman's story continues...Bruce Wayne is a man with a lot of inner demons and i for one will be happy to see them explored

    your forgetting one of Oldmans other importiant performances where he waves a stick around convincingly!

    Sirius Black!

    but yes, i really love the way he plays Gordon.

    I was veyr surprised and happy with the amount of screentime Two Face got. That being said though cant see him returning. Yes, hes and interesting character, but the way Nolan makes is a vigilante like Batman whose killing for the right reasons. I cant see him being a main villain, and i cant see him "miracaulosly living"

    Sorry MagicWDI, I think you misread my post. I was talking about Two Face.
    They did his face so well it was almost identical too some of the comic books.

    Re: The Dark Knight (MiceChat Reviews)

    I finally caught the movie, and while I liked it, I do have problems with it.

    The Joker's part, as it was written, is archetypal. He's presented as an agent of chaos, and someone of pure evil, and someone cartoonish and black-and-white.

    This contrasts, rather obviously, with Ledger's highly detailed and nuanced performance. We know that there is more behind the makeup and the motivation, but the movie never touches it (and the idea of saving it all for a supposed sequel is somewhat galling).

    And it ran a little long, and I'm sure the DVD release will be even longer. It's still a good movie, and Ledger provides a bravura, screen catching performance the likes of which we rarely see any longer.

    Re: The Dark Knight (MiceChat Reviews)

    I'm going to see it again Sunday probably and I just bought the movie soundtrack ! This was definatly one of the most entertaining movie's I have seen .

    Question, does anyone know which scenes were filmed in the Pinewood Studios in England? They don't say which scenes were filmed there on Pinewood's website, but just mention that they used S Stage for parts of the movie.

    That's what I'm thinking also. But I am not sure.

    Might see The Dark Knight for a second time this Saturday.
    The Dark Knight was a very well written, acted out and fun movie.

    Re: The Dark Knight (MiceChat Reviews)

    I like the Dark Knight much better than Batman Begins after seeing that one again. I think I had a problem with how Gotham City was depicted in the first. That elevated train... not physically possible. I couldn't stand it. And then there was that one bit player who works in the water main control tower.. what's his name? Oh yeah.. MR. EXPOSITION. His delivery of all the pipes about to blow was comical and really distracting.

    And haha.. that is all I didn't like about the first. Oh and also young Bruce Wayne looks more like Josh Hartnet than Christian Bale. I mean come on... we've seen what young Christian Bale looks like! Cast someone that looks like him! They cast his dad very well!


    And after several listens to the score for Dark Knight, there are some hightlights but nothing ever comes close to some of the iconic tracks of the first.

    Finally Chris Nolan got the really reality touch of Batman...instead of it's silly and chessy side (Tim Burton's Batman). No Robin, Nightwing or Batgirl please!!!

    Caine's Alfred, in my opinion, is like a retired James Bond who wants to get his hands dirty again.

    Re: The Dark Knight (MiceChat Reviews)

    I just got back from my trip to Calgary. I saw Dark Knight there on the IMAX screen - Awesome! That's all I can say - Awesome!

    The only gripe I had with the movie was Scarecrow's part, it was too short and completely unnecessary. It would've been better if his role was expanded in the main story better. Either have him in there in a longer role or not at all.

    I definitely will go see it again.

    I didn't stay until the end of the credits. Was there any mini scene? Did Superman show up and say they are forming the Justice League?

    Re: The Dark Knight (MiceChat Reviews)

    I agree, Scarecrows part was totally unnecessary. And why have all those fake batman's and the real Scarecrow?

    As far as Caine's Alfred, I do agree it's quite good, and I think Disney Wrassler's take on it is spot-on.

    As for the best "Alfred portrayal" based on the comic book, I still think it goes to Michael Gough. He just looked the and played the part.

    But with Nolan's re-take on the story, the normal stuffy hands-off Alfred wouldn't have worked.
