Holy Freaking Crap, Batman.

I just saw the Dark Knight and it was seriously one of the best movies I’ve ever witnessed. The acting, action, and effects were friggin superb. It all started with a long wait in line which was not boring at all due to the company that I was with. We were all ushered into the theater, checked with detectors, the whole “no video cameras or cell phones or anything that could possibly capture Dark Knight and distribute it on the internet” drill.

Finally, after an announcement from the manager of the theater, the film we had all been waiting for started. Let me just tell you this. From the start to the finish there was not one point in the movie that I wasn’t completely enthralled about. I don’t know if it was my involvement in the whole process (i.e. seeing the Brach’s parking lot blow up, walking the same streets that much of the action took place on, taking part in the ARG), but I was just floored by the whole performance.

I’ll write more about the actual, but as of now I’d like to get a little bit of rest.

On another note, this video is amazing beyond words.

I’m IN – Dark Knight Screening!

After a long day of waiting for the timer at http://www.whysoserious.com/overture to come to an end, the day culminated with a frantic search across all of the Dark Knight ARG pages to find puzzle pieces which finally unscrambled to “Kickingandscreening”. I put my name into the website and was generated an honest-to-goodness pass to see one of the most anticipated films of this year.

This seriously couldn’t have happened any better than it did. Elise and I are taking a honeymoon to Europe next week on Thursday, which is the night the earliest normal Dark Knight shows are. This ticket is for the 15th! That’s two days before the actual release! How cool is that.

For those interested, this is what the ticket looks like. I’ve blanked out all pertinent info because I don’t want a jerk to steal my pass.
