DON'T FORGET CHRISTIAN BALE'S IN THE DARK KNIGHT TOO!
You will probably end up standing in line to see The Dark Knight this weekend and we strongly suggest you do it at an Imax theater. The visual scope of the film is surely one of the most enjoyable parts, so see it the way it was meant to be seen. While we were enthralled by Heath Ledger’s creative performance, we had to feel sorry for Christian Bale who starred as Batman. HE is The Dark Knight, after all. Bale is an excellent actor who is being completely ignored while the world concentrates on the late Heath Ledger. Reporters actually have had the gall to insult Bale’s intelligence by asking if he felt the so-called “dark role” contributed to Ledger’s untimely demise. We have to admire Bale’s self control – he was more polite than we would have been. It’s a movie based on a COMIC BOOK! Heath wrapped the movie knowing he did an amazing job of acting – he must have been walking on air. What happened later was not related. On a lighter note – we loved the Joker’s wardrobe and have a new appreciation for the combo of purple and olive green.
