This week is one of thouse weeks where one movie get all press because one something or one thing of greather important it get special attenion more the the surporrting cast, since a untimely event back in February the top released of this week have more meaning other than the script other than what it all about but who is in it

That Movie is:

The Dark Knight [PG-13]

This is the latest of the batman film fanchiese since it was reviled back in 2005 with "Batman Begins", Christian Bale return as the Cape Curser as he fight crime in Gotham City and his alter ego Bruce Wayne.

the movie also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal taking over form Katie Holmes as Bruce Wayne love inster Rachel Dawes, Michael Caine returing as his bulter Lord Alfred, Gary Oldman Lt. as Lt. Officer James Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.

but there is one stars that is getting all the attention, that is the late Heath Ledger who played the comical but dangererst "The Joker" is what turn out to be his last complet film roll before his untimely death back January 22 at the age of 28

The early review that i have read it look like the heath protrail of the clown prince of crime [which have been play in the past by Jack Nickinson in "Batman" in 1989 and Cesar Romero in the 1960's tv seriers] is one of the best perfromnce of the joker ever on the on screen.

and not olny that this is a tribute to one of the great Character actor who was gone way too soon, and yes he was a really good actor, i saw the "I'am not there" in the discount thether back in march and he was really good in it, he was also in "Monster's Ball", "Lords of Dogtown" [which was base out of the wonderful doc dogtown and Z-Boys] and the movie that won him a oscar non "Brokeback Mountain"

Plauing at the DFT at the DIA


A smash hit in Italy, My Brother is an Only Child reunites director Luchetti with the screenwriters of his acclaimed The Best of Youth. Set in a small town in the 1960s and 70s, it’s the story of two brothers who want to change the world – one as a prime mover in the local Communist Party, the other as a Fascist. What begins as a simple tale of sibling rivalry becomes an indelible portrait of the social upheavals of those turbulent times, as well as an unexpected love story. An intensely satisfying cinematic work about dreams and disillusionments, My Brother harks back to the exuberance of the early classics by Bellochio and Bertolucci.

And playing on the Saturday Double Creaher
feather at 3:00 PM on Saturday


These sequels to the 1957 classic The 7th Voyage of Sinbad both feature fantastic creatures from special-effects wizard Ray Harryhausen. In The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, the fearless sailor (played by John Phillip Law) reconstructs a golden map that leads him to strange lands and amazing adventures. (105 min.)


Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger finds our intrepid captain (Patrick Wayne) saddled with the task of restoring back into human form a prince who’s been transformed into a baboon just before his coronation day. Harryhausen’s last film in the Sinbad cycle was nearly two years in production, and looks great on the big, big screen! (113 min.)
