12.27.09DVR So... this was on while we were doing stuff and I eventually stopped paying half-attention and started paying full attention until the end. Still a very good movie. DirecTV HD is way better than Time Warner HD. That Joker sure is creepy.
03.28.09DVD So this is a split entry. I watched it again on my standard DVD on my brand new 52" LCD and it was still a pretty damn good movie. Then on Easter I got a chance to see the IMAX footage on the BLu-Ray on a 72" rear projection and that was even more awesome. Watching that in a home theater setup and thinking back to my hour-long wait at the IMAX and paying 15 bucks for a ticket and everyone coughing and smelling like BO in the theater, I actually had a moment where i took that "why do I even go to the theater" debate seriously. I know... FOR SHAME!

Anyway, this movie is pretty long. And really not like the all-time most amazing movie ever... I think just the fact that it was solid and more happened in it versus Batman Begins really propelled its popularity (like X-Men 2). A good movie for sure... which is maybe surprising?

Aside from it making a trillion dollars, it's still good.
07.29.08Bullock IMAX Ahhh I've waited too long on this one. I really liked it. Seeing it in the IMAX was definitely worth it. The 70mm footage was almost overwhelming, which fits considering the story and pacing. It's so relentless; once the Joker gets unleashed it's a constant sense of danger. Ledger does actually even-if-he-were-still-alive stand out in his performance. Him just sitting there puts you on edge, always a split second away from something brutal. Everyone else was right; it's awesome.

I hope to see this again in another month or so when it's not selling out every night just to get another taste of the IMAX presentation.
