The Dark Knight
No surprise, The Dark Knight was the winner at the box office this weekend trouncing its competition. It set the record for opening weekend sales coming in for 155 million. Second place was taken by Mamma Mia! which made 27.6 million.
And yes I saw it, and I thought it was phenomenal. I can't say much more about Heath Ledger than what's been said already, but what really got me was the depth of Chris Nolan's script that brought out the nuances in all of it's characters. More than just the best superhero movie, this deserves the mantle of the best movie of 2008. Sorry Tony Stark.
PS: To echo Orr and MY this was NOT a PG-13 movie.
