    Watched The Dark Knight last night in IMAX (NO SPOILERS)

    An amazing achievement for Nolan and co.

    Very realistic in that you can see how a Batman could exist in todays society.

    Heath Ledger as the Joker - bye bye Jack, you have been outdone on every level.

    IMAX scenes were breathtaking.

    I turned up 40 mins before the flick started and theres was a pretty hefty queue. Fortunately i beat the crowd to the best standard seats you could get. Absolutely gutted for the ones who showd up at 9PM - they had to sit in front of an 8 story screen (front row)....gutted.

    Get in early.

    9.0/10 - only because it could've had a more explosive ending.

    Thats not even funny, because if someone says it does't happen or does happen then you have spoilt it for some who still might think he does or doesnt die, *****.

    Cheers for that, I think i might go see it today, if i can get a seat that is.

    I haven't seen it, but i think its fairly obvious he doesn't die

    The Joker uses 'Anti-Batman' spray

    I haven't seen it yet, I think we're going to watch it once the kid is back from his summer hols with his nan but there's no chance that a character like Batman will ever die, purely because the films gross too much money and is arguably the biggest money spinning film of the comicbook era and considering there's loads of comic book films going on, it would be the worst time to kill Batman, so it wouldn't make any business sense in the whatsoever.

    One question though, I've never actually seen a real film at Imax (only watched things like Sea monsters 3d etc) is it much better than watching a blockbuster release here than at a standard cinema?

    Does the characters jump out at you like they did during another Imax own production film, as that was quite impressive? :-D

    I'd think twice about taking a kid. This movie pushes the boat out to the edge of PG-13....no joke. Couple of parts are disturbing even to a 26 yr old like me!

    Regarding the IMAX comment. You should know that The Dark Knight is the first theatrical movie in the world that uses IMAX cameras in 6 or 7 scenes.

    Now i bet you're thinking - "wait a sec, i've seen loads of theatrical movies at IMAX" - Yes you have but all those movies were upscaled to IMAX resolution from digital. True IMAX res can only be achieved by using IMAX cameras.

    For a movie like this, a cinema is a must but if you're lucky enough to have a choice between IMAX and standard cinema like me, then go for IMAX 100000%. The aerial views are quite stunning as somebody mentioned above.

    First time viewing for anyone should be on the cinema or IMAX. I would even go so far as saying that a 100" TV and a Blu-Ray copy of this wouldn't do it justice.

    I look forward to hearing your reviews when you get back.
