Just flicking ahead to see what films the TV has to offer us in a world where we all have DVDs, Blu-rays and downloads (and of course here I'm talking about BT Vision and iTunes ...).
The Dark Knight is on SKY on New Years Eve and has been awarded ... 3 stars out of 5. Hmmm .. well I find that hard to agree with, but I guess the standards must be really high ... oh no .. wait a minute ... Superman Returns and Hellboy 2 get 4 stars ... that just doesn't add up. Superman 2 just didn't do it at all for me ... and whilst Hellboy 2 looked fabulous ... the story wasn't what I'd call an all time classic. The Dark Knight however worked on all sorts of levels ... it's one of the few films that I've ever seen where I'm sat there as the credits roll and just think 'Wow'.
If you've not seen it yet then shame on you ... go and get a copy ...
As for Radio Times .. you need to get some consistency across your reviews ... I can only assume that the guy who reviewed The Dark Knight has much much higher standards than the guy who reviewed Hellboy 2 ... oh .. wait a minute .. the guy gave 4 stars to Shrek .... sigh.
