Skipping School

I'm so tickled! Hubby and I are skipping school this afternoon to go see The Dark Knight! We *never* take the time away from work to do things like this, so it's really a special treat. It's nice too because both of the girls will be in there respective "schools," thus no need for a babysitter. I just love, love Heath Ledger, and the trailer for the film looks amazing...Add this to the fact that I sent my first revised chapter to the rest of my committee members yesterday, and I'm a happy girl!

Well, how was it?

Awesome, awesome, awesome! Heath Ledger is the star of the show, and his version of The Joker blows Jack Nicholson's away!! The film is darkly beautiful, and the technical gadgets and stunts were atypically impressive...As in, I'm not normally a fan of them, but I was giddy at the coolness of some of the stunts in this movie. I'm officially lovin me some Christian Bale, and I'm not alone in predicting that Ledger will nab a well-deserved Oscar for his performance.

In an odd way, it was a bit like Paradise Lost. Evil just comes out looking so damn cool, fun, maybe even inevitable, that good is not much better than boring.

Awesome! We just watched Batman Begins . . . well, I did. SuperDad had seen it already. I loved Christian Bale and I've been mesmerized by Ledger in the previews.
