There are quite a few notable movies out in US this summer of 2008. This is one of the best times of the year for people like me who’s passionate about good movies. Some may not be as worthy to watch compared to others but it still provides the temporary escape one craves time and again.
I’ll try my best to squeeze them into my schedule and I’ll post feedbacks as soon as my time frees me off my important tasks. But to give you a taste, here are some of my “must watch” list, in order of priority.
1. The Dark Knight – Batman and James Gordon join forces with Gotham’s new District Attorney, Harvey Dent, to take on a psychotic bank robber known as The Joker, whilst other forces plot against them, and Joker’s crimes grow more and more deadly.
