Overview and Review of Batman: The Dark Knight directed by Christopher Nolan.
Batman and James Gordon continues to exterminate crime in Gotham City, and this time they joined forces with a District Attorney named Harvey Dent. A new freak of a mastermind has taken over "organized crime" in Gotham City named Joker. No identity, no family, no nothing.
This is by far one of the best movie I've seen in 2008. It's Batman - he is a Hero.. so it must be loaded with action scenes right ? Well, get a load of this movie - it is not just action scenes you would enjoy but great memorable dialogues too. But, actually almost everything about this movie I enjoyed - the acting, the action scenes, the Lamborghini, the musical score, and did I say the dialogue ?
Christian Bale did a great job acting as the super-rich-i-can-do-anything-i-want bachelor Bruce Wayne and with his deep voice in his caped suit with all those flashy rides. Of course, Heath Ledger - actually made an ASTOUNDING PERFORMANCE as the Joker. Joker was a very provocative antagonist. He would really try hard to corrupt you. The other casts did their best and was exceptional. Just right for their part.
This movie is pretty much applicable to real life - it's not all fantasy. The comparison between the Corruptible(White Knight/TwoFace) and the Incorruptible(Dark Knight/Batman). Batman is now #1 in my Super Hero list. *laughs*
I also like the scene with the 2 Ships. `twas brilliant and moving. It also got me to thinking: "What If I am There?.. What would be the best thing to do?". And guess what? I did not pass. Mwahaha. Shucks. I need to think about that more often.
Batman: The Dark Knight sure amazed a lot of people, because it exceeded most of their expectations - the writing, the acting, the music and of course the directing. There was never a dull moment to the movie - you'd be glued to the screen most of the time. Everything is excellent!
Joker says: You would really know who that person is... when
Line I like :
Lt. Gordon: Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.

Overview and Review of Teen Idol by Meg Cabot.
May 10, 2008
A high school junior from Clayton High (Indiana) named Jenny Greenley is secretly the school newspaper's advice columnist "Ask Annie", a position she got due to her famous ability to keep other people's secrets and ability to give advices and help out. On the other hand, a teen star named Luke Striker is about to make a movie about high school, and since he is a star and grew up on TV, he really knows nothing about "a normal school life" and an ordinary teen lifestyle. He wanted to learn how it feels like being in High School and so Luke was to go to Clayton High. Clayton High's principal assigns Jenny to look after Luke and make sure no one else would know he is "Luke Striker". She was to show Luke around and all that.
and there the story begins.
This is so Meg-Cabot-ish. I like the "Ask Annie" portion in the book. This is a nice book with a twist in the end *to some it would be*. Very good for high school kids. oh and for Meg Cabot fans of course. Entertaining. As usual. Also teaches you how to stand up from what you believe in and doing something other than being neutral.
I read online it will be made into a movie.. Well.. we will see.
