I went to see The Dark Knight over the weekend, and yet I'm just now writing about it in my journal? Yes, I do indeed fail at life. Actually, there's a good explanation... I've been re-watching Torchwood series 2 and Charlie Jade. So, yeah, that has basically consumed my free-time. I'm a complete dork over those two series -- sue me.

Anyway, time to talk about the knight.

First and foremost, I've got to get this off my chest-- if Heath doesn't at least get an oscar nom, I'm sending my personal bounty-hunter after the entire academy. His portrayal of the Joker was just simply haunting; it was mesmerizing watching him on-screen. He even distracted me from Bale at times -- which is really saying something. Now, as for Bale, he was fantastic as always. He has successfully turned Bruce into a truly complicated character.

All in all, this film definitely measured up to the hype -- it was an action-packed thrill ride from start to finish. Here's hoping that the academy will cease being so damn ignorant, and finally realize that comic-book adaptations can be just as good as those other films they seem to love so damn much that no one has even heard of.

Now then, time for bed...
