"Two very enthusiastic thumbs up! Fine holiday fun!"*

Last night Greg and I went to the midnight premiere for the new Batman movie, the Dark Knight. It was awesome! I'm not the type to usually be into comic books turned movies (300 not included) but this movie is something to talk about.

Here are the highlights of the night:

-I especially loved Heath Ledger's acting as the Joker on meth/crack/both (he licks his lips a lot and his body is tweaking out constantly). Totally different from Jack Nicholson's Joker version and definitely not someone you would want perving on you.
-Hilarity ensues every time Batman talks. Christian Bale must have had to have throat surgery after this movie because I used to use that same hoarse voice to scare my sister, Jacie, when she was little and after talking like that for awhile my throat used to get really sore and itchy. There's no way I could do it hours on end for a movie.
-Maggie Gyllenhaal. No explanation needed.
-I am paying for it. It was about 2 1/2 hours and so we got home at about 3ish. This is not that great since I get up at 7 in the morning and now have to go to work on 4 hours of sleep. WORTH IT!

Lows of the night:

-Greg bought a large diet soda and towards the end I had to make shi-shi so bad I had to miss two minutes of that movie. I should have got one of those Lisa Nowak space diapers.
-The audience at Theater 5, mostly consisted of high schoolers who could not sit still in their seats prior to the movie starting and were yelling across the theater to their friends in their pubescent voices. Always running around and shit. Some dressed up as Batman movie characters (i.e., Poison Ivy, Riddler, Cat Woman, etc.) They were the most annoying component of the night.
-Guy behind me had rankest B.O. 'Nuff said.

Go see it.
