initial reactions to the dark knight

  • Heath Ledger is the best Joker ever. Even better than Mark Hamill.
  • I'll never be able to look at the Joker again without thinking of the Black Dahlia.
  • Fantastic performances from Christian Bale, Aaron Eckhart, Gary Oldman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman. Some of the best casting I've ever seen.
  • Hey, it's President Lindberg from The Fifth Element!
  • Why is the mayor wearing so much eyeliner?
The Dark Knight set a new midnight opening record with $18.5 million, a new single-day record on Friday with $67 million, and is expected to take the record for non-holiday opening weekend, though we won't have the final results until Monday.

I was wondering about the Mayor and his eye liner as well. And then I remembered him from LOST, where it looks like the same thing occurs. Bizarre.
