The Dark Knight
Excellent in lots of different ways. 4.5/5
The trouble with the Joker as a villain - and Heath Ledger is remarkably good in this, much better than Nicholson, and he wasn't bad - is that he outshines Batman himself. I wouldn't have rated this so highly if we didn't have Batman Begins to fall back on.
NB the sound at the Odeon cinema in Colchester was not as good as it might have been. There were various elements of dialogue that I missed. I look forward to getting my own DVD copy and rewatching it. Once or twice...
