I watched this installment in the Batman series very recently, and fell in love with the character of the Joker. I bought the DVD not long after, simply so I could have the story in my possession.
Recommend! DVD quality is superb, and the extra features are great.

Don't Miss This If You Can Help It.
Funny but, this is the first Batman feature film that doesn't incorporate the word "Batman" in its title.
There never has been a more exciting time in my life when The Dark Knight showed up at the Box Office. I paid my ticket and then sat back and enjoyed the film better than ever. The reason I enjoyed this movie so much was that, before now, the Batman series of films seemed much more comic book than mimicking real life. The Dark Knight seems to somehow capture the essence that should always exist in the handover from comics to the big screen.
Christian Bale really didn't carry this film to greatness; it was The Joker (Heath Ledger) who made the film extraordinarily real in the sense that the criminal elements came together and alive on film with a burst of originality.
Bruce Wayne, who poses as a rich industrialist, sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets by creating his own persona known as Batman. Since we already know his intent from the last Film "Batman Begins", we pick up where the story left off in hopes that his complex plans will lead him down the road to success. Little do we know that The Joker will step into his life and thwart many of his plans to once and for all, rid Gotham City of the Low Life Scum that controls its underground.
Gotham City's District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) has the best line in the movie, which said, "You die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain."
For the first time in feature film-making, IMAX cameras were utilized. Christopher Nolan had wanted to shoot in the IMAX format for years and wound up doing so. Six major action-heavy sequences, along with various high-altitude shots, were filmed on the IMAX ratio. These sequences are available on the Bonus Disc of the 2-Disc DVD Edition.
I'll give this an average rating of 5/5.

The Dark Knight shines the light
The best thing about this movie is: even though it is a movie about a comic book hero, the filmmakers didn't treat it as such. They approached this film intelligently. A big upgrade in this film compared to Batman Begins is the use of existing landscape with little-to-no CG. This added to the feeling that the movie was more of a drama, about real people and not some cornball, over-the-top action film. I live in Chicago, where the vast majority of the film was shot, and I really appreciate the fact that the look of city was not altered very much in any of the shots.

Would you like to know how I got my scars?
What can I say about this movie that hasn't already been said? It's amazing! That's not why I bought it, though. I'm all but abandoning blu-ray; it's o-ver-ra-ted (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap). Especially when you have a Pornstation 3 with a tinny sound processor, and user-unfriendly control settings. With a slow browser and poor blu-ray support, it's no wonder why it's getting it's big black arse kicked by Mr. Gates and co. So useless are it's media capabilities, that's it's best used for streaming and downloading mp4 format skin flicks, but I digress. I'll be running this bad boy on my laptop which has better resolution than my HDTV anyway. I bought it for like, 6 or 7 bucks with shipping brand new, so I'll take it and just let me say, "thank you sir, can I have another?" Lol!
