I like Maggie G a lot as an actress, and with out seeing the movie yet ... it does feel a bit out of place for a role like her. But again I haven't seen it so I won't judge yet, though Katie Holmes is a wreck compared to Maggie G when it comes to acting. Also I sorta agree with Amazins, I think her looks is a more acquired one than the blonde hair big boobs one.
Dark Knight. What can you but Wow. Ledger was historically unbelieable in the role of the Joker. It's to bad he isn't around to do another movie.
I don't think the 2 face angle could have been an entire movie and been worth watching. I think it did fine being short.
I'm sure they want to another movie now but I wonder who they're going to go with for a future villain. The Joker is the main villain and after him, and especially the Joker that Ledger played, the other villains won't matchup.

That's all votes, it's currently tied with a 9.1 for the best movie of all time for the top 250 list where only regular voters count. It will probably come down as well soon, but who knows.
I loved it, Ledger was unbelievable, I agree with J35J that it was possibly the best single role played by an actor in a long time. It was definitely unforgettable. As for the rest, I do agree that it should have been broken up into this movie being focused on Joker and a sequel focused on Two-Face (Dent). I felt like the two-face part was rushed, but still I enjoyed it. Ledger really made the movie. Bale was great but not unbelievable, guys like Samuel Jackson/Eckhardt/Gyllenhall and the others all played their parts great, but Ledger was unbelievable. Anyway, I loved it and may very well see it again with a friend who hasn't seen it yet.
