Matilda Ledger Owns Heath’s Potential Oscar

Remember the discombobulation of Summer '08, when people were still saying the Academy never awards posthumous Oscars, because they like to see people get out there and campaign? How we had to hammer the possibility into inevitability,…

Pondering Heath Ledger

Video of Heath Ledger’s AFI Win

10 Things I Hate About The Dark Knight

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UG92fyZhjs Paddy M suggested that maybe we should set up a page where we can quarantine accommodate The Dark Knight haters for the duration of the contentious season. Sloppy googling led me to this tight…

Dreaming of The Dark Knight’s Return

ok, that title won't fly, but whoa, this freshly fan-made poster for The Dark Knight sequel is a soaring superheroic knockout. So good that early reports thought it might be the real deal, until somebody reported the source, with and…

Nolan’s Batman, Past & Present

BATMAN I don't have the luxury of friends. Luckily for us at AD, we have the lavish luxury of countless friends. Some of those friends have blogs, and better yet, some of those blogs are all about movies. I'll get around to linking to…

TDK résumé, by the numbers

Remember the good ol' days when the Batman franchise was populated by thespians like Chris O'Donnell and Pat Hingle? Since a lot of what we do here is pull up random stats to support vague notions (at least that's what I do) I thought it…

“The ‘Unforgiven’ of superhero movies”

You know how Batman, when he takes a brutal hit, you see him stagger, stuggle to stay upright as he falters unsteady on his feet? The pain is palpable, and you feel the same bone-cracking hurt that he does. He might even go down, and you…

The Dark Knight, More Money Quotes

A couple of sour notes from The New Yorker and New York Magazine today (ChicaGotham envy?), but the raves rolling in still far outnumbering the thumps for The Dark Knight. As with the early reviews last week, it's not so much the overall…

Wicked Sick Dark Knight One-Sheet

Like a reckless act of slasher vandalism, the scattered cards and splattered blood stains on the latest poster for The Dark Knight foretell a violent clash of sinister forces. In spite of the coarse prankster mockery of the scratched…
