I don’t want to add any spoilers for the all those folks who haven’t seen The Dark Knight yet, but just to confirm:

Yep, it’s fantastic.
Yep, it feels like some crazy 70’s crime drama.
Yep, Heath Ledger is that good and deserves an Oscar nom.
Yep, the Imax shots are utterly breathtaking.

And Yep, we’ve NEVER EVER seen a comic book movie like this that takes such a deep look into a superhero mythology and delivers a complex, existential take on order and chaos while at the same time offering shot after shot of gritty, crime drama with a plot loaded with unexpected turns.

Yep, we’re overloaded with superhero movies this summer, but trust me, this one’s DIFFERENT.
