Before Saucy even begins her cupcake review of Batman: The Dark Knight, she wants to address a few issues... but let's get those pastries out of the way and discuss more serious matters. Saucy gave The Dark Knight four cupcakes out of five, and she will tell you why.
Reason one: above... Saucy's only Batman. Yes, Christian Bale is all Bat Hot and Bat Handsome with his Bat Pecs and his Bat Chiseled-Chin. But study the portrait above, dear reader. Do you see what I see? I see the perfect not-so-secret celebrity crush. I see the world's best Bruce Wayne. Flawed, not perfect. That's how Saucy likes her Batmen. Furrowed brow and all.
Second... what's with all the movie posters? Saucy demands to know why Warner Brothers Pictures distributed so many variations on a theme. It's a guy dressed like a bat, we get it. And a guy dressed sort of like a clown, we get that, too. But why so many different posters? Is the art department that slow?
This one, a mere teaser. The undeniably recognizable bat image.
Perhaps some of the posters stress the them of the show: dark, sinister badness. Reader, I mean sinister badness. Do not see this movie if you cannot stomach sinister badness.
There's some good... in the form of Harvey Dent.
But that bat, he is a dark character, indeed. As it should be, a vigilante superhero and all.
Of course everyone is talking about Heath Ledger as The Joker. Has Saucy ever told her readers about her coulrophobia... her morbid fear of clowns? Knowledge of this fear may cause you to pause and wonder how Saucy ever sat through this movie in order to bring you, dear reader, her cupcake review. That's how much she lurrrves you.
Saucy shelved her coulrophobia, her arachnaphobia, her acousticophobia, cacophobia, entomophobia, and her lygophobia to sit through this two and a half hour movie. For you.
Her motophobia didn't help, either. Motophobia, be damned!
Dark. Sinister. You can bet on that. Long - Don't buy the big soda. Disturbing. It's a good thing Saucy keeps her Valium in her Juicy Couture. But see it, you must. Put all those phobias of yours aside and go see this movie. I only left out the fifth cupcake out because of all the sinister badness. Sinister badness and cupcakes do not go together.
