So for the full effect, be sure to visit your local IMAX theatre next month and see it as it was really meant to bee seen. \:\) Yes, that was a completely shameless plug.

You have a freaken IMAX theater!?! You poor bastard, how can we help? I think I have room in my closet for the projector, you looken to sell? I was goin for the new Pany 3000, but I could go IMAX. Althouh I hear it has bad lip sync problems on PS3 so perhaps I'll pass. yeah, that's the ticket.

Finished Dark Knight on BR last night. Very good. Even more impressive was Ledger's version of the Joker. Though Nicholson's campy version fit the script of years ago, Ledger's fit the dark story line that is now being scripted. I thought he did a great job.

Curious how they'll write up the next movie w/ Batman as a true outlaw.

Now I'll have to wait for Watchmen, as long as it really makes it to the big screen...

This is where Robin will finally enter into the picture. ;\)

I have heard rumors of Robin rearing his annoying head. Hopefully they'll figure out a way to make that character valid.

re: Watchmen...it's not only making it to the big screen, it's making it to the REALLY big screen. ;\)

I watched Dark Knight the other night and thought it gave my EP500 a good workout. I can't believe no one has mentioned the sound editing strategy to make every punch be accompanied by a big dose of house-rattling bass. Very visceral, and very loud.

My wife loves that movie. I like it pretty well, but she probably has it on her top ten.

I think what I really enjoyed was that entire track seeks to elicit a visceral response from each score. Even the scores that are not significantly sub-50Hz still had a pulsing stress to them that I found really captivating - or, as you said - visceral. If you saw the bonus material, you see how the did some of the sounds, and it is really cool “out of the box” stuff. Great score.

I actually found the whole exploration of a character totally motivated by a need for chaos, rather than greed, one of the best parts of the film.


I think this sums up the movie best for me. I found that underlying theme fascinating. Ledger pulled it off very well. I love the scene where he is talking to Harvey Dent in the hospital.
