Review Revue: The Dark Knight vs. ABBA, Chimp Flicks

Plus, it's time to say farewell to one of RT's own...

ABBA fans and chimpanzee enthusiasts take heed: there’s room for only one at the top, and Batman’s all out of bubble gum. The year’s most anticipated film finally hits this Friday, but will The Dark Knight live up to all the hype? Find out that and more, and watch Dave Chung’s final farewell from RT in this week’s Review Revue.

Many of you will find out tonight just how good this week’s sequel to Batman Begins really is, but join us below to discuss what the critics are saying about Chris Nolan‘s action, Heath Ledger‘s Joker, The Dark Knight‘s PG-13 rating and more. (Also come back after you see TDK and let us know what you think!) Is The Dark Knight a masterpiece? Is it one of the best movies of the year? How many bazillions of dollars will it make this weekend? And really, was it such a bad thing for Joel Schumacher to put nipples on the Batsuit?

Meanwhile, the rumors are true; Dave Chung is leaving us. We wish him the best in his future endeavors and thank him for adding that extra spice, contributing a pantsload of unrepeatable jokes, and dropping a few too many Amanda Bynes and/or Carrie Underwood references during the course of his Review Revue career. As a farewell, we’ve included a rare behind-the-scenes video from the RT offices featuring a farewell performance by Dave “Kobayashi” Chung.

Watch it!

You know you want more Batman. Who can get enough? Check out our Total Recall: It’s the Bat! article remembering all of the Caped Crusader’s cinematic adventures over the years.

And check back next week for our discussion of the family comedy Step Brothers and the long-awaited sequel, X-Files: I Want to Believe.
