We went on a double-date with old-time friends and fellow bloggers Jeremy and Heather. After the movie, which I will briefly review in the following paragraphs, a couple asked us to take their picture in front of the Batman sign. Heather and I looked at each other and said, "They must be bloggers." Only bloggers take pictures of EVERYTHING--a trip to the movies, a trip to the park, a trip to the bathroom. A post is much better with a picture. I've kind of been in a picture-less rut lately--time to dust off the ol' camera.
Since we were going to be spending the big bucks on the movie anyway, we decided to spend the "really" big bucks and see it on IMAX. The movie ... was ... awesome! Absolutely rivoting. That's my short review. I'm not sure IMAX is much better than the regular stadium-seating theater. We arrived a little late to the movie because Ruby River was slow with the service that night. We thought we'd be fine and just miss the previews. Oh no--not IMAX. No previews for IMAX, so we missed the first 10 minutes. It's a good excuse for us to go see it again. It's definitely a movie worthy of seeing twice. Warning for parents with children who think they are old enough to see this movie: they are likely not old enough. It's a pretty scary movie. I couldn't stop thinking about it for days. And it was a little eerie for me to be seeing Heath Ledger in a crazy, insane roll (which he seriously did do an amazing job of acting) now that he's dead. Kulani did make a good point, however. His acting almost seemed like Johnny Depp's portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Carribean. If they're going to bring back the Joker in follow-up Batmans, and I really hope they do, Johnny Depp would get my vote for the next Joker.
