Batman Blog-A-Thon Day 1

- Firstly, check out Ryan McNeil's blog, Dark of the Matinee. I read his stuff all the time and in showing that great minds think alike, he's on a Bat blog binge this week as well. And I love the tricked out look for his site!

- It had to happen eventually and it finally did. Someone wrote a negative review of The Dark Knight. David Edelstein of the New York Magazine has called the film "noisy, jumbled and sadistic." The only other well known critic to be unfavorable to the film is David Denby from the New Yorker. You can read his review here in which he describes it as "constant climax; it's always in a frenzy and it goes on forever." Besides jumbled, are any of these things negative?

- A friend sent this to me today. It's a rather cool thing about a Dark Knight screening. You can read it at the link if you cannot read it well here.




All rather cool stuff indeed.

Psst... "Dark of The Matinee"...no 'Side'.

And thanks for the plug ;)
