I usually hate super-hero films (the spiderman trilogy is to me what emma watson is to you) but this seems amazing, I was watching the trailer, and I was already completely blown away, mainly by the fantastic heath ledger. I mean...woow. And, to your post above: DON'T GO TO THE DARK SIDE EMMA!!!!!!! It's the crappiest thing in the world!!!!!

incidently...what did you think of the pride and prejudice movie, with keira? I didn't really like it at first, but I saw it again a few days ago, and I completely fell in love with it, it's now in my top 20. did you like it? xxx

Utterly awesome in every way. Did I miss the part where you gushed about it, Emma? Because I'm sure you must have. ;-)
