The Tales of Beedle the Bard at Amazon.com! Eric is excited about it, as is my BF Jess. But he's not prepared to spend copious amounts of cash on the super special addition like she is, but hey at least it's an option! Enjoy!
Second, I have to tell you just how much I loved The Dark Knight. I'm already nerdy, as you all know, so you won't be concerned or surprised by my gushing about comics come to life on the big screen.
SO... The Dark Knight gets released on DVD on Tuesday the 9th. BUY IT!!! It has Christian Bale as Batman, the BEST FREAKIN' BATMAN EVER, HANDS DOWN. Also, it's got Harvey Dent/Two Face, awesome, and the all time best villain to ever grace the big screen Played by the late, great Heath Ledger. The Joker. 'Nuff said.
If you didn't get a chance to see it on the big screen, you really missed out. C'mon, who doesn't think that Heath Ledger in a nurse's dress is hilarious. I love that they even curled he hair for it! But I think the best part is the incredibly and undeniably male walk he does in the dress! HA HA HA HA HA!
And who could forget the Joker's famous magic trick. I have never seen someone so effectively make a pencil disappear. He was absolutely bug-nuts insane and yet he still had this brilliant
and unfailing logic. It was riveting. Many people gave the movie bad reviews saying that he was a crappy joker because he didn't make any jokes. To these opinions, I would like to mention that,
- The joker was named that because of his calling card, which of course is a joker card, not because he should be dancing about telling jokes all the time.
- He's nuts, and therefore all of his jokes (of which there were many) were in fact just sick and twisted. Example: you never actually know which story of his scars is true, because he gets off on the fact that the stories are sick and scary, and they make HIM laugh. It's the subtle things like that that make him my #1 Villain of all time.
Get it, watch it, love it! You won't be sorry you did. May Heath Ledger rest in peace. -Jeri
