Colin Weighs in on The Dark Knight

Think there is nothing left to be said about The Dark Knight?  Oh think again.  Check out Colin’s review here.

(Also check back soon as we will have a Dark Knight Blu-Ray review as soon as possible.)

“The Dark Knight” is an exceedingly clever film.  Like Batman it is almost indestructible, satisfyingly tense, smart, allegorical, and action packed.  I grimace at the last statement because my tolerance for mainstream film action is so low that I don’t even expect it to be good, but “The Dark Knight” is.  But that’s because of the characters.

Poetic movie review of “Brokeback Mountain” in the spirit of remembering Heath Ledger

Rosie checked out Brokeback Mountain and was inspired to write another movie review in verse this past week.

Can you keep a secret? Listen, just between you and me, some of my inside-inside sources are telling me that there might be a little buzz growing around Heath Ledger this year as an early Oscar favorite. But keep that under your hat, alright? Anyway, it all made me realize that I probably don’t really know enough about what kind of actor Heath Ledger really was. So I enrolled myself in the crash course and, lo and behold, pulled out a peach of a pick for the latest installment of the fantastically pleonastically named series, Movie Reviews of Movies For Grown Ups But That Are Written For Kids And That Rhyme Which Is How You Know They’re For Kids Even Though The Movies Are Inappropriate For Kids But That’s What Makes It So Ironic.

The Dark Knight movie review, “The Dark Knight-Rides Once More To Protect The Rich”

Alan just wrote a new review for The Dark Knight, and gives it a C+. Read his review here.

Wow.  The wow is referencing how shocked I am by the consistently awesome reviews of The Dark Knight that are floating all around right me now.  Many may read this review and say, “this guy is a negative jerk that just wants to go against the grain simply because he wants to show what a free thinker he is.”  Honest to God that is not the deal here.  I wanted to be as blown away as I was supposed to be, but it just didn’t happen.  Alright then, that said, The Dark Knight isn’t bad, its just not that great either.  Sorry, the latest Batman incarnation is not that great.  It does appear that, to some extent, a success con is being pulled- making people believe this film is a masterpiece before they even hit the seats.  Read the rest of the review here
