Two-Face and the Dark Knight Mania

In Entertainment, Movies, MTV, The Dark Knight on July 16, 2008 at 3:40 pm

The Dark Knight mania is all over the Web and not soon to be slowed down. My own blog has been getting close to 2,000 over 3200 6,150 7,600 hits a day for a post I did back in March about the movie. — Not that my biggest post has ANYTHING to do real politics – see where society’s priorities are? ;-)

We have all seen what the Joker looks like, but until recently, Two-Face’s image has been under close wraps. Warner Bros. has done their best to keep the grotesque Harvey Dent/Two-Face image out of site.

Far from Tommy Lee Jones’ campy version in 1995’s Batman Forever, Aaron Eckhart’s rendition goes beyond just superficial facial scaring. In May, Eckhart told the Los Angeles Times that his Two-Face should make you “get sick to your stomach…like you would feel if you met someone whose face had pretty much been ripped off or burned off with acid.”

By the way, be sure to check out MTV.com’s ‘Dark Knight’ Dogma: Everything We Need To Know We Can Learn From Batman. Then read their take on Harvey ‘Two-Face’ Dent:

What if Barack Obama were killing off bad guys in his spare time, all in the name of “change we can believe in”? What if we discovered that Mahatma Gandhi had inspired all those movements for civil rights by secretly doing away with those who opposed him? What if a crusading attorney general for a city known as Gotham was exposed as breaking the very laws he claimed to enforce, revealing a dark side that lusted for … $1,000-an-hour call girls?

So is this the real thing? Guess we’ll just have to wait one more day to find out. Midnight showing, here I come :-)
