~ I'd heard from fans of the comic books that the movie was terrible, while action-movie fans thought it was awesome. I found it to be neither. I'd describe it as unimpressive and predictable, but with enough action to keep me awake for nearly 3 hours.
~ Speaking of which... no movie needs to be that long.
~ I'm not convinced Anne Hathaway (or her legs) is human.
~ I'd marry Christian Bale right now if he asked me. I'd also marry Joseph Gordon-Levitt, if it wasn't for the fact that he's too young for me.
~ My ability to care for children has been questioned, many, many times. Yet, even I know you don't take a 4-year-old to a PG-13 movie that starts at 8:20 PM, is nearly three long, has a lot of explosions and scary guys, and then tell her to "shut up" when she starts to cry.
~ How on Earth is there any person in the US who has not heard about what happened when this movie was screened in Auroroa, CO? I don't know the answer, but that one guy walked into the theater right in front of me.
~ Since that incident, local movie theaters have started searching purses, making it increasingly difficult to sneak outside soda and snacks.
~ I don't understand how movie magic can create crowds from one person, make it look like a man can fly or scale buildings, create life-like monsters, and do it all in 3D - but couldn't use a voice-over so I could understand what the actor playing Bane was saying. I know he has an accent and was speaking through that funky mask - but c'mon.
~ People love superheros because they give us hope. Batman shows us that with the right amount of inspiration, determination, and hope - anyone can be a hero. The real strength superheros give us isn't by being there to save; it's by acting as a symbol of hope, and inspiring us to save ourselves.
~ It's unspeakable that anyone would try to tarnish a franchise like Batman by associating it with senseless violence and loss. The only thing worse would be to let him.
