So does anyone else feel more and more that they're setting up Mike Engle as the Riddler? Especially after the last Gotham Tonight episode, where Dent remarks that Engle is "obsessed" with Batman. Add in the fact that he's a journalist, which means he has to ask a lot of questions for his job, and it begins to seem more likely.

Plus, "Mike Engle" could be a stage name. A name like Edward Nigma doesn't exactly seem like something that you'd want to use if you were a TV personality.
Eh...I don't think so. After all, if Batman were real, he would be BIG news. If they were setting something up, I would think it would be Dent's views on Batman. In the "interview", Dent kept evading what his thoughts are on Batman. Judging from the previews, the Dent/Batman relationship will be a good portion of the movie.
Oh, I'm sure the Dent\Batman angle will be a big focus, I'm just wondering if this might be something they have on the backburner.

James Berardinelli (Reelviews.net) posted his review of TDK this morning.

"The best superhero movie of all-time, and one of the best sequels."

Quint at AICN posted his

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/37466


He's usually among the toughest critics there, but he's effusive about TDK


"I can say without any hesitation that THE DARK KNIGHT is a spectacular piece of storytelling, that it is as giant a leap forward from the first film as EMPIRE did from STAR WARS or that Godfather Part II did from the first, that all this talk of Heath Ledger being nominated for his work as The Joker isn’t just industry buzz capitalizing on the tragic and far too premature death of the actor. He will be nominated and he would have been nominated had he been alive to see the film open."

I just Fandango'd my tickets for Friday night 9:50, the IMAX was all sold out for Friday night.
Guess that means I'll have to catch a Sat or Sun showing on IMAX then.

Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

Hmm.

Quint's review at AICN states that TDK is not really The Batman's movie, and says it belongs to more to Dent and the Joker.

That's disappointing to hear. I had enough villain-centric films in the last Batman franchise.

I will remain open-minded, of course...

Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

Am I the only one NOT dying to see this in IMAX? I think the format is great for nature documentaries and such. But any time I try to watch a traditional movie in IMAX (like AOTC or SR) I've found it almost impossible to follow all the frenetic action happening on screen.

Hell, Nolan's action scenes are probably going to be hard to follow on a standard size screen, let alone on a gigantic IMAX screen.
