THE Best Ever

Unbelievably, I was able to see "The Dark Knight" last night. I thought there was no way that it would be possible, seeing as it's not even officially released here until today. The idea was to buy tickets for another day but there was a show starting at 6:40 and there were actual seats available! The planets were aligned...

As you know, big Batman fan here, and this movie was the best one so far. Except for the brief fallout in the middle, they increasingly get better and better. Lots of twists and turns that I didn't expect and the acting was the best so far. Of course Heath Ledger was just as good or better than the glowing reviews, but the others were outstanding as well. Maggie Gyllenhal was a GREAT switch for the character of Rachel Dawes and I'll watch anything with Aaron Eckhart in it - yummy. And I could go on and on about Christian Bale but I won't bore you.

Anyway, GO OUT AND SEE IT! At the beginning, the whole crowd is in, eating their goodies and waiting for the movie. After the previews, there's always a screen that shows what movie is about to play and up pops "Mamma Mia". MAMMA MIA?? If you're going to make a mistake, at least put on another thriller or something. Of course there are plenty of hisses from the crowd and so it stops and there's another 15 minutes or so before Batman comes on. The funny thing is that there was a sign at the register that said "Due to technical difficulties, Mamma Mia won't be shown." The joke is that they probably lost the film and once that error occurred...FOUND IT!
