Do you want to know how I got these scars?

Just as we were about to buy our tickets for the Dark Knight movie, a man in a business suit walks out yelling to everyone about how awesome the Batman movie was. And aside from his drooly excitement he has absolutely right. Rated as PG-13, the writers must have done a lot of editing just to insure no kiddies would have been too scarred. But the two hour and a half long story was full of everything from psychological social experiments, that would make the code of ethics go into epileptic seizures, to unpredictable loops and turns and an ending narrative that bundles the whole package in a nice big batty bow.

What I really liked about the movie is that you didn't necessarily have to be a hardcore fan to still be able to enjoy it. The movie appealed to the young and old alike and was impressive enough to make a couple of middle-aged women dance in their seat regardless of the feelings from their embarrassed families.

And the casting is really up on the scale--Micheal Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman are all terrific actors and such a treat to see on screen. And come on, the late Heath Ledger makes an awesome psychotic Joker, it really makes up for Batman having a 60 year-old smoker's voice.
