I didn't want to do it.
I really didn't.
Jake kept bugging me until I finally relented.
I guess a little part of me did want to.
One of my reasons for not wanting to was the same reason I wanted to...
I agreed to see, and went to see The Dark Knight.
I'm not a Batman fan - never saw any of the other Batman movies. But this one is different. It has the late - and in my humble opinion, great - Heath Ledger in it, brilliantly playing The Joker.
He did a fantastic job. Actually, fantastic doesn't adequately describe his performance. It was over the top sensational. That may not even be adequate either, but I don't know what words would be, so I'll leave it at that. I hope he is nominated, and wins, an academy award.
And as far as Batman movies go, I'd have to say that this one was good and I did enjoy it. It had a plot line that was a little deeper than most super hero movies have. There were plenty of twists and turns. And even the traditional good vs. evil aspect had more depth and dimension and gave you a chance to examine what really is good and what really is evil.
... and did I mention Heath Ledger is in it ...
And I think it's only fair that since I agreed to see The Dark Knight with Jake, he should have to go see Mama Mia with me. Don't you agree?
