    All I can say is HOLY SHIT what a movie. Best movie that I have seen all year and i have seen Ironman, Hancock, and Kingdom of the Crystal skull. Heath Ledger went out with a bang, his joker is incredible. SEE THIS MOVIE.

    Yeah, it's a sequel. You don't HAVE to see the first one, but I would recommend it.

    100% agree, best movie i have seen in a LONG time... i would highly recommend seeing "Begins" before this one... helps get things in line... plus it will get you pumped for Dark Knight... could make it like a marathon day or something... anywho this is a MUST SEE

    just saw it one hell of a movie, ledger did one hell of a job, to bad ledger doesn't really have a chance at an award (the academy doesn't really like to acknowledge dead people, unfortunately)

    His Joker is by far the best that I have ever seen. Jack Nicholson did good, but he was more of a happy go lucky joker, not a psychopathic joker like Ledger did. I love his pencil magic trick.

    yeah definetly the best joker I've ever seen. it's such a pity but I guess it'll remain as his own personal eulogy.

    only thing I disliked, should blown up katie holmes instead of maggie. lol

Great movie of the year for me!

    I thoroughly disagree with all the hype, it was a mediocre movie at best.

    Worn out plot, mediocre cast, just another comic book movie, even if it was well made.

    Christian Bale, oh how I hate thee for ruining the remake of 3:10 to Yuma with your subpar acting.

    I dont think it was mediocre at all. And you have to follow the comic/cartoon classic plots to some extent or all hell will break loose when people see the movie.

    I think it was very well done. On a side note, I thought it was a little annoying (although acceptably part of character) how the joker kept on licking his one cheek.

    THE ACTING IN THE MOVIE WAS THE BEST I'VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME EVERYONE GAVE A STELLAR PERFORMANCE i actually believed they were who they were portraying and i must say i was impressed, its a shame we don't see to many movies that actually get good performances out of the actors

    sorry about the caps lock

    Man this movie is getting some of the best buzz of any in recent memory. People aren't just saying yeah its a great movie, everyone I've talked to has had huge exclamation in the voices telling me I have to see it as soon as possible. 9.7 on imdb w/ that many votes? Crazy. I'm seeing it tomorrow, I feel like I may be over-hyped now.......

    I'm sure I'll enjoy it, no doubt about that. I remember about a year ago seeing Ledger in the Joker's paint and knowing then it would be better than any other Batman I've seen (well thinking anyway). But I tend to be disappointed when I'm getting this much hype from all angles......

    I honestly figured that it wouldn't be as good as Begins and the reason for the reviews was because it was Heath's last performance, but I was WRONG. All of the actors did a stellar job and the movie is tops. I can't honestly think of a movie in the last 5 years that is as good as this one.

    I attributed it to him licking scars from when he used to chew razor blades. Definitely an amazing movie. Saw it a second time tonight and it still gave me chills. Although this crowd was not nearly as awesome as the midnight/premiere showing crowd.

    i really hate loud fanboys at movies, i hate having to yell shut the fuck up at some fucker yelling at the screen. i mean don't get me wrong its cool if you love the movie but i wish people would voice their love for it until after the movie or maybe before. and that's why i don't like going to the premiers of movies unless i got free tickets. then there are little kids...which is why i go to movies at night;)

    btw does anyone else grab popcorn containers and soda cups out of the trash, clean them and then refill them?
