bias update

obsession: still Doctor Who (most recent episode blogging: “Silence in the Library”)
boyfriend: David Tennant as the Doctor (see my summer of Tennant and Hamlet)
psyched: Dark Knight (though it’s going to make me very sad, too)
dreading: Meet Dave (the trailer makes me cringe)
enemy: Mike Myers in The Love Guru, because no one over the age of 12 should find penises so hilarious

    All the buzz around The Dark Knight–the clever viral marketing, cast members’ opinions on Heath Ledger’s performance (Michael Caine thinks he not only should but could win an Oscar), and excerpts from Rolling Stone’s early review–make me wonder if I’m getting too excited for the movie, as if it can’t possibly live up to my expectations.

    And then I remember how I was excited for Iron Man and it was very nearly as good as I hoped (like most people, the only downside I saw was the CGI slapfest at the end), and even explored the themes I thought it should, though not as deeply.

    And if something like that can be done in two hours and with actors like Gwyneth Paltrow, Terence Howard, Jeff Bridges, and RDJ working under a guy like Jon Favreau, I can only imagine how TDK will be with people like Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Heath Ledger, Michael Caine, and Christian Bale, all working under Christopher Nolan, given two and a half hours?

    DAMN.

    Yeah, that was some clever viral marketing, getting Heath Ledger to kill himself before the movie opened…

    Cuz that’s what I was talking about. There’s gonna be whole new levels of stuff to find in *Dark Knight* that wouldn’t have been there were Ledger still alive and able to do dumb talk shows to promote the movie.

    Oh
    My
    Goodness

    I am SO ready for some Heath Ledger :)

    It is going to be a little sad though.. I might have to go home after seeing The Dark Knight, throw on “A Knight’s Tale” and cry it over with some Hagen Daas. Mmmmmmmm.

    That “Mmmmmmmmm.” was for Heath AND the ice cream, just to clear up and confusion.
