The Dark Knight

I loved it, of course. Actually, I saw this movie a while ago, right after it came out. Anything with Christian Bale and I’m there in a flash. Christian Bale as Batman? Heaven, peoples, heaven.

Personally, I was very impressed with Heath Ledger portrayal of The Joker. I thought he did a fab job. No huge surprise, since I already knew Ledger was a kick-ass actor. But what do you think? Does he deserve an Oscar? I’ve got my head so buried in work, I’m not sure what his competition might be, so I can’t give an adequate answer.

What say you?

As an aside, mark your calendars for September 10th. That’s when the Book-a-Day extravaganza will start on this blog. I’ll give a new book away every day until shortly after the release of The Chosen Sin on October 7th. Check back every day, answer all my questions and you’ll have a chance to win free books.

Now, back to working on the second draft of Witch Fury.

  1. I haven’t seen “The Dark Knight” yet, but the Oscar word has been thrown around quite a bit in regards to Heath’s portrayal of the Joker. He’ll definitely been the emotional favorite for the award.


  2. I feel the same way you do, Anya – Love Christian Bale, Love Batman, and the two of them together? Doesn’t get much better. [And yes I meant all those capital “L’s.”]
    I agree with Jane’s assessment. As to Oscar noms – I have no idea what other movies/actors are up for the award, and anyway, I have no idea what the criteria is :P I seem to always be surprised by the winners, whenever I catch the Academy Awards.
    I’d go watch Dark Knight again, regardless. Haha, with no thoughts of Oscars, just pure enjoyment.
