Yeah. I was at the TDK IMDb board and they said that the 'Matilda' nametag was on his uniform. I thought that was sweet just thinking about it even though I haven't clearly seen it the two times I went to see it.

Btw, that different scar stories, I heard just two of them as well. The Joker was about to tell one to Batman before Batman no but I know how you got these. Maybe that's supposed to be the third story but I guess it wasn't fully told. Maybe he told a story in some deleted scene.

I was very apprehensive about seeing "The Dark Knight", but I finally did (a few days after it opened).  Like I said in another post, I recognized Heath by his walk immediately.  I was filled with glee and excitement.  Other than that initial "here I am" moment, I saw no traces of Heath in that amazing performance.  I was totally suckered when the Joker kept changing the story of how he got his scars. 

Lastly, I have to be honest with you - even with half a face, I couldn't stop thinking about how sexy Aaron Eckhart is.  As I watched Two-Face sitting in the hospital bed I was still thinking about how I would do it.  Eek!  Mmmm...Eek!...Mmmmm...Eek!...okay angle your head just a little to the left.  Now hold it there.  Perfect.

I saw it first in IMAX, then in a regular theater. Twice in one week! Lol. And me and my sister are going to see it again sometime next week. It is such a wonderful movie.

OT

My younger daughter went to Six Flags Great America yesterday where she had her face painted to resemble the Joker. Afterwards, she was a bit of a mini celebrity, with people asking to have their picture with her.  Here's how it looked when she got home:



She looks great!

And in the same vein.... if anyone needs a smile on their face, do give this video a try. It's TDK trailer re-enacted by little kids. It's adorable. Love the bat-bike! And the Joker-voice. (Hopefully the kids don't know every little story detail of what exactly it is they're re-enacting.)

I bet there's gonna be quite a few Jokers on the street, come Halloween!

That video is hilarious, especially the "Hit me" scene!  Thanks for posting, Mika.  :laugh:

I was thinking the same thing! He sure was a stud muffin. Then, when half of his face was destroyed, he only became half of a stud muffin! But, still.... :P
Also, Heath sure was sexy as the Joker! I don't know why but it seems that supervillains in these kind of movies are hot!

Saw it yesterday. Not a movie I would have gone to, but for Heath.

Heath is terrifying; I couldn't watch, half the times he had people in his power.

I agree Bale is pretty bland as Bruce Wayne but more interesting as Batman. I liked the way he did so much acting with his eyes and lower face when he had the mask on. I must say, they did go on about the ethics of vigilantism and the real nature of the Batman. I grew up on the comics where he was just a boy's hero who pummeled people but never killed anyone. Nobody thought twice about either the ethics of that or what effect it would have on the mainstream lawkeepers.

Aaron Eckhardt is new to me - a bit much the Robert Redford lookalike but a studmuffin anyway. I want to see him developed as Two-Face, but they killed him. Can they make another movie in which that just didn't happen?

In fact the movie could well have ended when he appeared as Two-Face (and they teased us with his appearance a lot after that). Can someone tell me how that was all done? Prosthetics or CGI or both? It was amazing.
