No stitching today, but ...


We went to see Batman the Dark Knight today. All I can say is WOW! It is excellent. Of course everyone is saying how great Heath Ledger's acting was, and they are right. He was incredible. Another great performance is turned in by Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent. There is a lot of psychological background to the story. I would not take a child to see this either. It may be a comic book hero movie, but it is very dark. The one thing my DH and I both said though was Maggie Gyllenhaal looked like crap! In the party scene she has these big bags under her eyes and her hairstylist should be hung up by the thumbs. DH says she looks like she just woke up and didn't bother with any makeup :-) Overall though it stands up to the hype. It will be a hard movie to top. Now, I can go back to stitching. Still working on FoS.

I saw it last night; an awesome movie. I agree...Gyllenhaal looked horrid. I thought at first they used another actress.

I haven't seen the movie, but I like when beautiful actresses show their flaws. Makes me feel better about myself!

I just got home from watching Batman! It was my company's bimonthly movie night ^.^ I like it despite the fact that we were sitting 3 rows away from the screen >.< 2nd week on screen here in Malaysia... not surprised by the crowd, considering that it's Wednesday... 40% off the tickets.

By the way, I've nominated you for a blog award. Check it out over at my blog ^.^

I desperately want to see this one, maybe over the weekend. I have heard from everyone I know it is great.
