Ever Dance With the Devil in the Pale Moonlight?

So.

Batman.

Is it good? Yes.

Were there problems? Oh my dear yes. Plot holes and magical technology and deus ex machina, but nothing you might not expect. Well, the fingerprint thing was absurd to to the point of laughter, but nothing too hilarious.

Is it the best Batman movie yet? Maybe. It certainly could be argued.

Did Heath Ledger do well? Yes certainly.

Oscar-worthy well? No. Nowhere near.

I HATED the Two-Face make-up. Too cheesy looking. It totally took me out of the moment.

I cried watching Heath Ledger. I thought his acting was great. (I actually did think it was Oscar worthy.) I sat through the credits crying because of the loss of his talent.

Yeah, I hope I don't come off negatively about Ledger. I really do think he was a very talented actor.

I the Two-Face make-up/CGI would have worked better if we only saw it a little bit. The shock of seeing it the first time worked, but getting the chance to stare at it didn't help matters at all.
