Bruce Wayne is $314 million dollars richer.

July 29, 2008

The Dark Knight is the fastest movie to break $100 million dollars, $200 million dollars, and $300 million dollars. It is the largest opening weekend in history. It has the largest 10-day opening in history. Most importantly, Christopher Nolan’s dark superhero tale has a legitimate chance to pass the horribly cloying Titanic as the top film of all time at the box office.

Read all about it in this week’s box office report. Heath Ledger’s death has a lot to do with this, let’s not kid ourselves; however, even if he was still alive, this movie would have still been huge. After all, it’s Batman and The Joker. Everyone knows their history.

The Dark Knight (2008) Review

July 19, 2008

The Dark Knight is quite possibly the most hyped film of the year, thanks to the death of Heath Ledger. As it turns out, the second of Christopher Nolan’s Batman films might also be the best film of the year as well. Check out my comprehensive review at Den of Geek.

Honestly, this movie was so good writing the review was practically impossible. It’s so much easier to shred a movie for being bad, but when a movie is so great I have absolutely nothing to complain about? There’s nothing harder than that. I even tried to think of one thing to bitch about, but I had nothing! This might be the best comic book movie of all time. (Yes, better than X-Men 2, Spider-Man 2, and even Iron Man.)

Tasteless Jokes About Heath Ledger

January 24, 2008

I’ve already made my serious commentary on Heath Ledger, but I just can’t hold back anymore. So for those of you who are as sick as I am, there’s gonna be some funny ahead. If you’re not as sick as I am, or can’t appreciate wholly inappropriate jokes, by all means go here and enjoy some LOLcats.

1. First, Brad Renfro died. Then Heath Ledger. Somewhere, Edward Furlong is hiding under his bed with a shotgun,
waiting for Robert Patrick to come after him to try and finish the job.

2a. This is why you don’t go bragging about your apartment to Patrick Bateman.

2b. Christian Bale is a method actor, too.

3. Looks like Heath finally found a way to quit Jake Gyllenhaal.

4. Poor Heath Ledger is just another one of pneumonia’s famous victims, alongside folks like Charles Nelson Reilly and the incredibly heterosexual Freddie Mercury. Looks like Ennis should’ve worn his rubbers up there on Brokeback Mountain.

Seriously, a 28-year-old who is otherwise healthy doesn’t die of pnumonia. This isn’t 1919. He fucked up, mixed his drugs, and overdosed. That’s all there is to it. It’s a shame, but like I’ve always said: Doing drugs doesn’t kill you, mixing drugs kills you. Antidepressants and sleeping pills; sleeping pills and cocaine; or maybe just sleeping pills and NyQuil. Either way, that’s why you don’t mix and match your medication, kids.
