Just got back from seeing The Dark Knight.

Wow. INTENSE.

And dammit, this movie made me want to slash Bruce Wayne and Harvey Dent. And/or Christian Bale and Aaron Eckhart. (I figured I should use the actors' full names so no would think I was referring to some really fucked-up Lost ship!!) If anyone has any fic recs along those lines, let me know!

ETA: The Dark Knight is already the NUMBER ONE-RANKED FILM on imdb with a 9.7 out of 10 from over 23,000 voters. O_O

Oh, make no mistake Black Dahlia is BAD. I wonder why anyone stil hires Scarlett Johansson for anything! (But even worse -- Hilary Swank as a femme fatale?) But the potential for a ScarJo/Eckhart/Hartnett threesome was well worth watching it! I agree, the real story is so much more interesting and terrifying than the film. I assume it's all based on James Ellroy's novel, which I deliberately steered clear of, since I was afraid it would be just way too disturbing.

And agreed: No Batman/Joker! However, I can see Two-Face/Joker --- that scene in the hospital bed? I have to admit, I wasn't that fond of Two-Face's look. I was expecting something more along what was in Batman, the Animated Series. But SO MUCH better than Tommy Lee Jones as a giggling, psychotic Two-Face. Eeep!

Dammit, I need an Aaron Eckhart icon!

ScarJo is pretty to look at (Especially from what I've seen of the film), but I agree about her acting. And Swank was really a bizarre choice, wasn't she? I do love James Ellroy (LA Confidential was so brilliant - I wish all of his adaptations came out as good!). But as I said in my TDK post, I like things morbid and dark. He is definitely in that category.

The Two Face/Joker scene was one of my favorites in the film. A writer would have to be damn good though to get me to read Joker slash! I grew up with Batman (Even the old Adamn West TV series), and I wouldn't say he's asexual in my mind, but he's not exactly getting undressed either ;-)

I think right now - I'm entertaining pairings involving Bruce/Batman, Dent, and...Cillian is not hard on the eyes either. I thought Nestor Carbonell looked great too on screen (Richard! Although, I still think I'm alone in slashing him on Lost - hahaha).

And if you find Aaron icons, please share!
