Last week the wife and I went to dinner and went to see The Dark Knight. I don’t know that I would really call myself a huge fan of the Batman movies. I mean, sure, I enjoy them, but I’m not up to speed on the whole Batman saga.

That said, I have always liked Heath Ledger and I really wanted to see his final performance and boy did he deliver. I don’t want to take anything away from the original Joker, Jack, because The Dark Knight had a totally different tone than the first movie with Michael Keaton. Let it be said though, Ledger owned that part. He was by far the most unpredictable villian I’ve seen on the big screen in a long time and I honestly hope the man wins an Oscar for his part.

i think that he did such a good job only serves to make his death even more tragic. That his life was cut short is sad, but that we are all deprived of the best that he had to offer is even worse.

If you haven’t seen the movie, you need to.
