As for the movie itself... I had unrealistically high expectations for it, and yet for the most part they were all met. Pretty much everything about it was fantastic; the performances (even if Christian Bale's Batman voice gets to be a little too much by the end), the cinematography, the music... There were one or two things that didn't quite work for me (mainly regarding Harvey Dent's story arc), but I very much want to see it a second time so I can see if I missed anything. And yeah, Heath Ledger's performance is as good as everybody says it is; it would be Oscar-worthy even if he was still alive. The movie is worth seeing (twice!) purely on the basis of his performance; it is staggering.
Pretty mellow weekend aside from that; Kath and I stayed in the AC and watched lots and lots of movies, ate lots of junk food, and gave Lily and Lola much-needed baths (and there are adorable pictures of that, which we've yet to upload).
What else... oh yeah, I got the Fleet Foxes record last night and it's absolutely gorgeous. It's funny; I'd been obsessing over Tokyo Police Club for the last month or so, and all these uptempo rocker song ideas had been starting to form in my head, and then I hear the Fleet Foxes and I want to throw them all away and start writing folky 10-part-harmonies. Maybe I'll find a way to do both.
