Best word I can think to describe it... "INTENSE"

A friend of mine, noted how a lot of times, after leaving a movie... it doesn't stick with you. Your mind is already onto other things, as you're leaving the theater. But, with this one... you're dwelling on it for some time.

They nailed Newton's Third Law with this movie: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction

You'll love it. My friend is actually a film critic who writes reviews and he said it was the best movie he's ever seen. He's extremely cynical too...

I saw The Dark Knight twice in the IMAX theater. It was an awesome experience. It was my first time seeing a movie in IMAX. The Dark Knight is a must see in IMAX.

Exceeded all my expectations. I'm not even a Batman fan. Joker was too sick/creepy and I loved it. Saw it Saturday, then drove with friends yesterday to Anaheim to see it in IMAX (every other one near me was sold out til next week). Wasn't impressed by the IMAX though cuz it looked the same, but my friends told me that theater just sucked, Universal has the sickest IMAX theaters

I saw it at the IMAX theater in San Fran, it was crazy, the theater sat like 500 people and when the camera shots were from the top of the buildings it felt like you were on top on the building too. I think each IMAX theater is different, so it just depends on which one you go to.

Yea my friends saw Speed Racer at Universal and said the screen is much bigger and everything was wayyyy better there. Dammit.

I'm somehow in the minority, but while I really liked it, I thought it was neither the best movie of the year nor the best comic movie ever and certainly not the best film ever. And Ledger didn't blow me away. So now that you all think I'm an imbecile, really liked it and I'm looking forward to the next flick in the series. Eckhart and Caine were just awesome.

While I loved Ledger's performance, I have to agree. I walked away from the movie somewhat disappointed. It was a great movie in my mind, but nothing more than a 9/10.

Best movie ever? Not even close for me.
Best movie of the year? Not for me, and I'm not a huge movie goer. I like American Gangster more personally.

Like you said though, still an awesome movie and I'm looking forward to the next one.

I hope they use Zsasz as a villain to some extent:
