Christopher Campbell discusses going to see “The Dark Knight” in IMAX and how it affects his thoughts on the Oscars.
The Academy had their say, that The Dark Knight isn’t one of the five “Best Picture” candidates for 2008. But who cares?

Personally, I haven’t decided if I like any of the Best Picture nominees any better than The Dark Knight. But I do personally prefer to see a movie as big as possible, as long as that movie is appropriate for such viewing.
