The Dark Knight Hits DVD with Double Disk Sets and Disk + Digital Copy!

If you didn’t see The Dark Knight (the sequel to Batman Begins), you missed a thrilling, non-stop rollercoaster ride of a movie that literally had you sucking up the soda and then trying “not” to leave the theater to hit the restroom because there was no “pause” button to hold the movie so that you didn’t miss anything-and of course you did miss things.. even if only to blink or turn your head.

The movie was incredibly intense in performances by Christian Bale, the amazing (and lamented) Heath Ledger who literally gave the performance of his life as well as Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent. This triumverate of testosterone-driven action was underscored by the performances of Gary Oldman who was the perfect Jim Gordon, Maggie Gyllenhaal playing the female lead (replacing the sleep-walking Katie Holmes from the previous movie) and Morgan Freeman who played the tech genius behind Wayne Enterprises as well as the incredible Michael Caine as Alfred.
With a cast this savvy and talented, director Christopher Nolan really didn’t have to do too much to pull great performances out as much as lay out the story-boarding and plan the action sequences to underscore the plot (rather than the traditional way of making them stunts the centerpiece and the plot service them). Nolan’s deft handling of Memento — a movie I have seen more than once (loved, confused by and entralled each time I have seen it) was a great choice to ratchet up the intensity of this sequel.
Clocking in at about 2.5 hours, there’s so much here that makes it a blessing to have a DVD player if only to allow you to go down and get something else to eat/drink or just answer the phone.


The 2 disc DVD set is of good quality and while it’s not blu-ray– and if you don’t have one (I don’t) you are missing something. Oh well, so mark down the players more and I might buy one. However the blacks are still dark black but you can still see the details just fine and I have a HD Sharp Aquus that is perfect for this flick.

Disc 2 extras include
* The trailers & TV spots
* The Photo Galleries include an array of poster art, and production stills that look better on a large screen tv than they do on the web.
* The Digital Copy is a great bonus if you burn it to a DVD so that you can play it on a portable dvd player and leave the original at home. (perfect for long car or plane trips)
* Anthony Michael Hall’s character hosts several 5-minute episodes of the Gotham News broadcasts which expand the scope and feel that Gotham really exists.
* Six sequences of THE DARK KNIGHT shot in IMAX are included which is fabulous providing you have a tv large enough to handle it.
* Two featurettes on Disc 2.
A 7-minute look at how Hans Zimmer composed the Joker’s memorable theme.
A i 17-minute feature on Batman’s technology in the movie– including a dissection/discussion of the use of the IMAX camera.
