    "But there really is no better way to describe The Dark Knight than to call it a great work of art because it transcends both the boundaries of comic book moviemaking and even the parameters of good filmmaking. What Nolan and Co. have created doesn't just function as a thrill ride or even a terrific movie, but rather as a substantive and philosophical examination of why we need heroes, and then when we need them, what they mean."

    Oh baby :bowdown:

    "Meanwhile, the violence is quite possibly the most intense I have ever seen in a PG-13 film, leaving myself and others wondering how The Dark Knight avoided an R. But what is more disturbing is the unrelenting menace that hovers over every scene like a dark cloud. Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's leitmotif for The Joker sounds like a cross between Ligeti's "Lux Aeterna" (from 2001) and the scraping, metallic curlicue that was used in trailers for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and enhances the clenched-fist feeling that anything can and will happen at any moment, even scenes in which he doesn't appear."

    I just came to post a thread about IGN's review of The Dark Knight, but I see someone beat me to it.

    I can't help but be more and more hyped up for this movie. Is that bad?

    There's already tents outside the theater I go to.

    It might be because the guys at http://www.firstshowing.net/ are from here and they do all their events at this theater...either way, I won't be going opening night.

    I think this is the movie i've been waiting my entire life for... everything about it seems so... perfect. Nolan is a genius... nobody would have ever thought Ledger as the joker would or could be this haunting.

    Well, I thought that might be it but I saw that people were paying for tickets. Anytime I have been to a prescreening it was free.

    Well, people paying for tickets now aren't seeing a pre-screening. They are just buying tickets in advance.

    This movie is going to be incredible. I'm going to see it opening day (wanted to see the midnight opening but I can't due to complications). Everyone is giving it a 10/10... I'm contemplating getting the tickets in advanced or not. I don't think I have much to worry about though since I'd be seeing it in the day time rather than at night.
