Da-na-na-na-na-na-na BATMAN!

Loved, loved, loved The Dark Knight.

The acting was great, the plot was wonderful and Christian Bale just keeps getting better looking. Seriously, back in 6th grade I had a crush on this guy from Newsies and Little Women. He looked good in Batman Begins and The Prestige, a little better in 3:10 to Yuma but he looks freakin' great in The Dark Knight.

I digress. Go see the movie, but for Pete's sake, people, don't take your kids. Your child should be at least 13 to see the movie. The Joker is creeee-py and there are some tense moments. I even covered my eyes (but not when Mr. Bale was on the screen). sorry.

And if you do take your kids, my friend will be really ticked at you.

Seriously, though, this movie is so great because the character of Batman is so interesting. I love that there are the 3 sides of 1 man and I love that he sticks to his moral code. I love that he chooses to suffer for the greater good - that he is so willing to put others before himself. Of all the super-heroes, I like him best. He's not an alien or the product of some science experiment gone wrong. He's a billionaire wanting to save something he loves and serve something bigger than himself. And he hangs out with Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman. The guy's got good taste.

  1. I love the title of this blog! :)

    To your friend's blog about the young kids at the movie, I can totally relate! We saw Wanted a few weeks ago and a "mother" had brought her 4 year old daughter to see it!! Of course they were seated directly in front of us. It was so hard concentrating on the movie and trying not to worry about her poor little brain absorbing all of this violent content and crude language. She had her face buried in her mom's shoulder half the time. I actually found myself praying that God would protect her dreams that night! :( It was heartbreaking.
