Why so Serious?

The jokerImage by ♠NiJoKeR♣ via FlickrI can't express enough how much I am looking forward to watching the Dark Knight, it's not that I know much about the plot or the ending. It's just that the movie is looking like it has all the makings of a classic. There has been all the talk of Heath Ledger's performance warranting a posthumous Oscar, the way that he totally immerses himself into the role of the Joker and portrays the character on a whole new level. Jack Nicholson in the 1989 movie was amazing but Ledger has raised the bar now!

Many sources stating that his performance is 'mesmerizing in every scene', this being the late actors last full role. He was a very gifted person, with Brokeback Mountain previously earning him a nomination and showing that he was an actor in his prime. The advance ticket sales are an indication that this is going to be one of the highest grossing movies of all time. Expect a full review of what I think once I have attended the performance next week. Having seen the opening five/six minutes that were released/leaked to various sites a few weeks ago, I can't wait...
