I finally saw DARK KNIGHT in Imax over the weekend, and thought it looked
dynamite.  I was surprised there were so many Imax shots in the film -- I'd
bet there was at least half an hour of original 65mm material, judging by
how many times the aspect ratio popped back and forth between 2.40 and 1.85.

Incredibly good-looking film.  The critics were right, though -- Batman's
voice sounds weird as hell, and Gary Oldman's narration at the end is almost
unintelligible, because the music level is so high.  Minor nitpicks for a
terrific film.
